Think of it this way....human women are PG for aprox 9 months. Cats are PG for 9 weeks...so each week for a cat is = 1mo for a woman.
At this point Shadow is "due" in about a week (= 8 mo for a woman....and most 8 mo babies survive just fine)
When any creature is PG, the further along they get ,the more the other organs are pushed around as the babies grow. It`s getting a bit crowded in there about now, so that could be why she is "breathing funny"......know I had a harder time breathing or even MOVING when I was almost due!
Good luck Shadow....I hope you have healthy kittens...and just on time...and I hope they all find wonderful homes!
