if you can squeeze (gently i mean) a drop of milk from the nipple i have always found 24/48 hours. but this is not always the case.

You are probably very close now ... have you got a nesting place all set up for her? Has she begun to explore it and dig around in it yet? If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this thread to better prepare yourself for what is to come.

When the time comes, if you need help finding a low- or even no-cost spay/neuter clinic in your area, just let us know and we may be able to help.

Best of luck, we are all wishing for a safe, uneventful delivery for you!

unless you saw her mating or she only got out once , it can be very hard to tell how far long a cat is without a vet looking at her , but in any case she should have a vet check up since she is pregnant now anyway , they can make sure everything is going fine , and any concerns you may have they will be happy to help . ( were here of course aswell). when anne had her babys 2 months ago , i think her milk started comming in about a week before birth. every cat is different .

Some girls won't nest until the day of delivery arrives, so it really isn't such a good way to judge ... *grin* ... cats are such individuals that it really is hard to say one way or the other what they will do as a general rule. It is safe to say that many cats will nest or that you can see the milk glands "bagging up" about a week to 10 days before delivery. I was never any good at expressing milk so I just don't bother even trying. A better indication for me was when the gland around the nipple started to lose fur and have puffiness or appear slightly swollen. Then I knew that we were about a week or so away from seeing new babies.

63 is the average time althoygh obviously it varies. I think anywhere within 57-69 is considered normal. http://cats.about.com/cs/pregnancybi...nancybirth.htm
