Do you think this is it?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
BF's pregnant cat is due this week,I just went to take her temp but we couldn't find her,she was hiding under a cupboard. She saw and walked out and she was bleeding. Not a lot,just red mucous.

She is now eating but looks really nervous.

Does this sound like it is time?

Her temp is 90.50

Are you sure that temperature is correct? I'm certainly no expert but that seems way too low to me. When a dog I rescued was in labor her temperature dropped to around 98 degrees. If she was moving around a lot when you took her temp. it may have produced an inaccurate result.

I havent used the temp method to predict when labour is close so im not too sure what it should be but there is some info here http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80724

If the temp drops labour will be around within 12 hours.

Also a small amount of discharge is normal and is also another good sign, Is there a lot of blood or does it just look blood stained?

Im sure someone much more experience will be along soon to offer some advice to you.

Is she nesting at all or have you seen any contractions?

These kitty's can be a bit tricky to predict, Fingers crossed for you all goes well

She was nesting but my Tom cat scared her away since then she has came down and fell asleep in the bathroom,the kittens are moving about like crazy in there,her tummy is constantly moving.

Her temp could be wrong,it was the first time I have took a cats temp before and she was pulling away quite a bit.

It was blood stained mucus,not actual blood. Her nipples are crusty with white stuff which I assume is her milk. I can not see milk coming out but it does look like she has been leaking.

I'd say it's very likely she will have them today or tonight. Then again, these girls like to keep us all waiting!

Dont they just

It does sound like she is very close. With my girl in the couple of days before she delivered if i gently squeezed 1 of her nipples she would leak a little milky fluid.

Keep us updated as to her progress......And i will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you that this is it!!

i belive that temp is way to low and i would be worried , but as you said it might not be correct.
if she has mucus i would NOT try again. make sure she has a room of her own so that she can not be bothered by other animals in the house , they can put of labour if they feel unsafe.

just a quick ? did she have mucus before you took her temp?

She did have mucus before we took her temp yes.

She is nervous,everytime someone walks near her she sits bolt upright,she sits on the couch,gets off,sits somewhere else for 5 minutes or so and poke her nose by the side of my couch that currently has a load of clothes stacked up. She looks like she wants to sit on them but the second someone comes near she gets scared.

The door is open so she can go into her own room but I am wondering if she is too nervous. Should I just put her into a room on her own and shut the door? All the other cats are not around at the moment so it is just me and my partner down stairs with her. The children have gone to bed so maybe now it is quiet things may start to happen.

Good luck and hope all goes well. Its sounds like she wants to be on her own. Is there somewhere she can be to have her privacy but you can keep an eye on her still?

I think she should be confined to one room where the other cats do not have access, with a good sized box to nest in, line the bottom with towels or something and put her in it. And stay with her so you can keep an eye on her.

I would go put her in her room and maybe sit with her a while and watch what she does and if she settles.

She sounds like she is looking for some place to go

i totally agree . if she seems nervous shut her in a quiet room , maybe sit quietly with her or if she seem to painky leave her for a little while and check maybe every hour?

but please no more temp taking especially as she has mucus this indercates it will be soon

Well the house is all quiet now so she has totally relaxed and sound asleep on the couch. She didn't want to go upstairs. Looks like nothing is happening at all now.
