SO.....I just went to pet Dill's tummy....and low and behold....the fur around her nipples was CRUSTED to them, confused I looked closer to see milk dripping at a pretty decent rate...hmmmm that definatly didnt happen the last time she had a litter....what does that mean??? Anyone??? Im so axious, I feel like my mom did When I was pregnant with my first son.....lol...

That means she will have them in about 24 hrs or less. You might want to put a little vegetable oil on the nipples and massage it in; kinda clean them up before the kittens are born

that's soooo exciting. I have been checking in here all afternoon hoping for updates on Dill. Sounds like you will have kittens by tomorrow. Hope everything goes well. Can't wait for the next update.

Meanwhile here in Toronto......still nothing new from Nemo!

What a considerate cat to deliver on a weekend for you!

Will you videotape the big event? I can't wait to hear about the kittens and see the pics!
post #44 of 463
I think that she will have them tonight, but keep in mind, she'll have them when SHE'S ready and not before... she may keep you waiting for awhile, I had two last summer that drove me nuts waiting and just when I was sure it was going to be that day, it ended up being a week later .

My one queen decided to deliver the morning of Easter - we were dressed for church. I went in to check on her (she never would deliver without me being present). Noticed her having contractions - didn't make it to church

But on the cool side, she did have an Easter litter literally and color too - calico, black/white, red tabby/white, blue cream, tortie.

Eeeee! !!!
How exciting!

(I'm still waiting.

Must be nice that Nova actually stays in her birthing box, Dill wants nothing to do with either of the spaces, like last time she is prolly just gunna have them on my bed, I was worried about her having them in the basement so i just brought up her litter box, ( she wont use the new one in my room i set up) and locked the basement door so she cant get down there...and baracaded my bed so she cant get under it.....But the past hour she has been loving up MY bed, silly kitty...lol
post #49 of 463
O.K., yes, I'm jealous! But also, way excited to see them!! Any chance we could get one last pregnant photo before the big event??

Sorry to disapoint everyone, but NOTHING yet....I was up every 2 hours last night checking on her...nothing My vet said the tightenings im seeing in her stomach for the last 2 days are Positioning contraction....getting the babies lower in her stomach, i believe that, he stomach has dropped but thats about it and the milk is still drippin...another thing is she HAS NOT used her litter box since last night...hmmm.....prolly nothing to expel as she has hardly eaten or drank ne thing for about 12 hours now, she is snaking but barely.....The suspense is KILLING me.....I have to go to a hockey game in fort erie today and one in brantford tomorrow ( my fiance plays competitive hockey) Im scared if I leave she will have them.....AHHHHH

Ok I think Im going to pull my hair out.....The suspense is KILLING me....lol.....She STILL hasnt had the kittens.....She has had milk for a week and has been leaking milk(little bit) since last night...........
post #55 of 463
I'm sorry no kittens yet, but it will happen.
I have backed off of the worry over Rags. Now I'm just caring for her like any one of my other cats and when she is ready, she'll have them. I do feel her belly sometimes to check for movement, but none yet. I suppose that she wasn't as close when I took her in as I thought. I brought her in on the 11th. That was 12 days ago. She was pretty big then, but is bigger now. I think she will either have a lot of kittens or a few big ones.

Ahhh well I can see the kittens move in Dill's belly from across the room.....So.......plus she has had milk for over a week now, so it should be soon......
post #57 of 463
You must be going crazy knowing that it is soooo close. We caught Nemo sleeping in her box today and that is the first time she has paid any attention to it. Hopefully that means she is going to use the box when the time comes.

Keep us updated on Dill and good luck in the hockey game today. I am a HUGE hockey fan and am just waiting for the day my son is old enough so I can be a hockey mom.
post #58 of 463
WHAT?? No babies!!! Arg!! I was hoping but I suppose they know better than we do of when its time to come out... BUT STILL!! I hope everything goes well! You should try to put up a pic of her right now, so we have a before and after!

Here is a couple pics I took the other day....

I tried to get more but she wants nothing to do with any room but the bedroom and we cant find the memory card for the PDA....lol...And these pictures dont do her FAT belly justice....
post #60 of 463
OMG she's huge!!! If her belly stick out that far while she's laying on her side I can't imagine what It looks like while she's standing up!!!
