When will my cat have her kittens?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I brought my cat to the vet two weeks ago because she was looking a little plump. I soon found out she was pregnant and just from looking at her she told me she was due in about two weeks. Well two weeks was almost a week ago and no babies yet. This is the first time I have ever had a cat who has had kittens. All my other cats that I ever owned were fixed before they went into heat. So my question is, can anyone tell me how much longer? She has begun to constantly lick herself the past couple of days. Her nipples seem to feel a tiny bit "full" but again I am not sure. And two days ago I felt her babies moving. So if anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

If you haven't already, why not take a moment and read this link to prepare yourself for what is to come? There is a lot of useful information contained within that article but if you find you still have questions, please don't hesitate to let us know how we can help.

If you just began feeling the kittens move on Tuesday last, then I would guesstimate that you have anywhere between another week to two weeks to go before you see babies.

You will notice your girl's nipples becoming a bit more pronounced and the rounded areas around them beginning to look fuller as they begin to fill with milk. Usually, this starts happening rather early in the pregnancy, but as the term concludes, you'll notice that her belly shifts ... I don't know how to explain that, it is something you will know when you see it ... and the glands look different. The babies are moving closer down into the canal, so where your girl was carrying them higher and perhaps more to the sides, they will be lower in her belly and more towards her front side.
