If you're using Ringo, the web address of the picture needs to look something like: http://ringo.com/photos/photo.html?photoId=103665477
Yes, that'd be 65. A normal cat pregnancy is around 63-67 days.
The signs of impending labor are:
*Her vulva will swell a little and turn pink around 2-3 days before.
* She may either want you to not leave her side even for a minute or not want to be near you at all.
*She will become restless, may go off her food and scratch at things, as if she is trying to make a nest. Provide several nesting places for her so she can choose one she likes when the time comes. If she chooses an awkward spot such as behind the sofa or in a cupboard, don't try to move her and the kittens, just make the area comfortable (clear out the cupboard and put towels or blankets down) and make it safe for the kittens by using rolled blankets around the nesting area to stop the kittens falling, wandering off or getting 'lost'.
*About 12-24 hours before the birth, she will lose her mucous plug. This is a clump of clear or pinkish mucous that blocked the birth canal.
*You will notice a clear, pinkish or slightly blood-stained discharge from her vagina. If the discharge is greenish or brown, she may have an infection or a kitten that has died in-utero and she needs to see a vet ASAP.
*She may develop diarrhoea about 12 hours before the birth.
