Is It Her Time??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I think I read somewhere that just before a cat has her babies, you will be able to feel the kittens moving. I felt Salem's belly this morning, and I could feel movement. Does that mean that she's getting close to delivery??

I'm as nervous as a first-time Mom!

Sophie had babies 14 days after I felt movement so you might have a while to go.

The shortest amount of time I've noticed between feeling the babies and delivery was 10 days. The longest was one day shy of 3 weeks. The average seems to be around 2 weeks for most cats.

My Coco was getting kicked hard when she still had 3 weeks to go.

I felt my current foster's kittens, longer than 2 weeks, but on average, I'd say I feel them 2 weeks prior, and see them 1 week before delivery.

Good luck! Hope you have a stress-free wait!!

Yep, I would give it a couple weeks!

Yup, as others have said, I felt Ms Friskers' kittens moving about 3 weeks before delivery, and saw them moving externally about a week and a half before delivery.
