Hia... another newbie here!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi there it's lovely to be here and I'm just so thankful I found what looks like a fabulous forum!!
I'm Janey and mum to two kitties. I have Poppy who is just over a year old and I have recently aquired (about 4 weeks ago) another kitty that I've named Tilly, hence my user name Tillypop
Tilly was offered to me by a rather dippy lady down the road who clearly wasn't taking care of her properly as she was skin and bones when I first had her. When I asked her how old Tilly was as she's clearly a kitten herself, she had no idea!!!
She also let Tilly out unspayed and in the last few weeks it has become very apparent that the poor little mite is pregnant. Her belly is huge and this last week I've seen her babies moving about like crazy.
We are looking after Tilly as best we can and she gets lots of regular cuddles and love.
I'm really scared for Tilly as she is only young herself and I'm on pins waiting for her to give birth, but I'll leave that for another post.

Here's Poppy

And here's a rather pregnant looking Tilly

Great to meet you and I look forward to chatting with you

Very nice of you to take Tilly in and look after her. Won't it be great to see what color of kittens she will have? Poppy is also a very beautiful cat.

Welcome to the site and if I can help you with anything, let me know!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone

Hope it's ok to ramble on this post, but as I've said Tilly was already pregnant when I had her (unknowingly to me), but her tummy was looking rather bloated even then.
I've had her just over 4 weeks now and her tummy is massive. I've noticed that her nipples have pinked up in the last couple of days and the area surrounding them seem to have swollen too. She had diahorrea this morning and completely missed her litter tray and it went all over my wooden statue ornament things.. LOVELY!
She sleeps almost constantly and isn't eating as much as she normally does. A few weeks ago she would polish off her dinner and then wolf down poppy's too if I didn't stop her.
Today I've noticed She's been trying and I say trying as she's so fat and can't quite manage it, to lick her foof and is licking her abdomen lots.
I can see her babies moving like crazy in her tummy and I'm just wondering roughly how long she may have before she delivers?

Any advice greatly appreciated

Janey xx

This shouldn't really be on this thread but heres a short answer.

My cat Ziggy gave birth on Friday Morning. It was 13days after I noticed the kittens moving.

She licks her abdomen because they are moving.

Check her for fleas. My 3 day old kittens have fleas and I didn't even know Ziggy did, treat her before the babies are born.

You have lovely cats

Welcome to the site, its so useful, and a great hobbie.
