Just in case...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As you may have read, I just took in a stray. She's doing well, using litterbox, eating, being generally happy!

Unfortunately, she's pregnant. I can't take care of 2 cats and kittens, and this being kitten season, there will be too many kitties around looking for homes. So I'm getting her spayed in about a week (have to get the SPCA voucher - $67, what a deal, then the vet I got in touch with said they could probably make an appt for the next day).

Do cats know "Gee, I was pregnant, now I'm not."? Will she be sad or act strangely after it's done?

hmmm I really don't know. I wouldn't think so. How far along is she estimated to be?

Good luck dear!

The vet said less than 35 days because mineralization hadn't occured... she's very round already, even with her new tummy she only weighs 7 pounds.

They don't typically miss them if they never smell or see them if this is indeed the first time she has been pregnant. I know how hard of a choice this is to make, but you are making the right one, the responsible one.

She may act off for about a day or two but that will be from her surgery and her body adjusting to not being pregnant.

I had a cat that was spayed during early pregnancy. It didn't seem to affect her.
