Well, ok...false statement, that. I know I can have her spayed now, kittens or not - and I continue to choose not to. But yeesh - I've had four days (and nights) now of reminders why all other female cats I've had I did
The good news is, so far I've only lost one pair of drapes.
Curtains in all other windows are open, so she can see out. But of course the most handsomest tom EVER must have been outside this OTHER window, cause I can't see out of it - so those curtains are coming down NNNNNOOOOOOWWWW.
Prancing the hind quarters....tail held to the side....oh yeah. Pregnant or not, she's definitely in heat. And I know I haven't mentioned that petting kitty is now a shocking experience - as it's cold and dry outside,....so kinda dry inside....and she's been rolling all over the carpeting....static shock city here, folks!
The other good news is that other than the usual distress I am associating with the in-heat thing...she still seems to be fine. No signs of advanced labor. I still see an occasional ripple along the back....but not nearly as often as before. As for checking for baby movement, that's impossible at this point. She's so into constant rumbling / chirrupping that she practically vibrates.
Definitely vet tomorrow. I gotta get some answers one way or another about all this - the mystery is killing me!
For those who might come into this late - Pixie was a foundling that hubby brought home a month ago. At that point all we knew was that she had been hanging around an area for about three months, and no one local was claiming her, and the owner of the land didn't want her around due to his dogs. We didn't immediately have her spayed due to the belief that she might all ready be pregnant....so I and the vet decided to hold off on her vaccinations and spaying until we knew for certain. A month later...and I still don't know.
But hopefully I'll get some answers tomorrow!
