the first thing i would suggest is a vet vist, they will give you a good idea of when to expect kittens. between 10 days to a day her milk will start comming in, but sometimes wont untill she has them. movment of the kittens will start in about the 7th week of pregnancy, and sometimes you will see a mucusy discharge when she is near to delivery, but you vet is the best person to ask.

not sure if you know , so if you do im sorry. but she can become pregnant days after delivering her kittens so it is important to keep her indoors only and away from any intacked males untill she has been safely spayed. when she is about 7 weeks into the pregnany its a good idea to start her on a good kitten food.

Welcome to TCS!

I'm not sure if you are aware, but, depending on how far along your cat is, she can be safely spayed. This procedure is called a spay/abort. You may want to ask your vet about it. Kittens can be very expensive, hard to raise if the mom dies or rejects them, and difficult to find homes for. Most countries around the world have significant over population problems when it comes to cats and this would help prevent more unwanted kittens.

Best of luck whatever you decide!
