A few questions...

Ok I have another thread but have some questions.
My cat Sophie must be about 9 weeks pregnant.
Just wondering...
How far along are cats when they start showing? Exactly 30 days ago I noticed she looked quite pregnant.
How far along are cats usually when they get in milk? Sophie got hers in 3 days ago.
How far along are cats when they get discharge? Sophie got some clear discharge 2 days ago and still has some.

I have heard lots of conflicting info on all of this.

I found this information on another website.
Usually about two days before giving birth your cat's mammary glands will increase in size and she will begin producing milk. Your cat's temperature will decrease to about 99 degrees F and you may notice a drop in her appetite. She may become restless and begin nesting in earnest. She may follow you around and become very affectionate or pace from room to room. Other signs are that she may begin purring, meowing, panting, licking her genitals and she may vomit. You may notice a vaginal discharge and eventually contractions. Not all signs apply to all cats.

Then the birthing process begins.
If this is true then Sophie should have them any time.

Meeko had a discharge the night before she had Yoshi. Meeko hated Coco until she went in labor then she demanded she be with her. They have been good friends ever since. Meeko Meowed alot and wanted to be with me. She did not have milk before though. It depends on the Cat.

Of a cat delivering? How will I know if she is going to deliver on a certain day?

I have never birthed a cat before. But that is the question that everyone wants the answer to. Every cat is different so there is no correct answer to that question. From what I know they can start lactating/leaking fluids from their nipples 1 week-the day of labor. They leak fluids... kind of like their plug or water breaking.. a day or two before they deliver. And from what I have heard (although someone might tell you differently) is that if your cat starts having contractions, they will start delivery in the next 12-24hrs. Lastly, when the queen is in labor, she will start crying and howling very loudly. Which is great if she delivers while you are sleeping

Hope that helps a little!

Have you had a chance to look over the stickies at the top of the forum? There is a ton of useful information in them. This thread in particular should help you out a bit:
