Pregnant Cat, Sign of Labor?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
A stray cat adopted me when i moved to a new house. About two months ago, I noticed she was pregnant. She has shown signs of nesting for the past 3 weeks now, today she has been very vocal, but she is not following me around like usual. Just whenever I am in the same room with her she talks a lot. When I pet her belly it feels hard, usually I can feel a kitten kick or move around. Could she be going into labor? She is acting very nervous, and her eyes look scared. What do you think?

it could very well be, just make sure she is nice and calm and in a safe room with her food,water and litter tray. keep us updated and we love pictures here.

Congratulations on the kitties! I'm guessing mom and kits are doing just fine. Were you there to witness the birth or where you just surprised?

So, yes...your instincts were right...she was in labor!

Congrats, on the kittens. You'll have to document their progress every day. That's what I do when I have baby mice. It's amazing how fast they grow.

im so pleased that she had a safe delivery and healthy babys. yes i will be the one to say it, will you be getting her spayed once the kittens are weened? remember she can get pregnant as short as a few days after birth so please keep her inside and away from any intacked males.

Yes, I definitely plan on getting her spayed. When she first adopted us, I thought that she must be someones cat since she is so tame, so that's why I didn't get her spayed then. I put up flyers and an ad in the paper, but no one anwsered..then she got pregnant.
Sylvie(the mom) and kittens are doing just fine, she's been eating when I put food in her box, but she won't leave the kittens just yet. She ate a whole bowl of food last night!
And no, I wasn't there for delivery, I came home from work and was happily suprised!

Here is a picture of Sylvie with her babies, she doesn't like the camera around them. Remember theres 3 white ones and a black, all that you can see of the black one is his little paws in the air!
