Lets guess how many kittens

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
On the x-ray the vet took we could very clearly see 3 kittens. There was also a mess of what could have been kittens but it was hard to really tell. I am thinking more than 3 for sure. How many would you guess?

Could be 5.
Vet told me Coco would have 3.
She did then 12 hours later 2 dead ones were born.
That was with a ultrasound.

It's hard to tell how many little babies cats can fit in there, even with x-ray and ultrasound. If they see 3...well I'll say 4, .

When my cat had her litter of 8, she was huge. I knew she was going to have at least 7, as she started to show at 3 weeks! My last litter was my first of Devon Rex which are a smaller cat, and Bonnie looked quite small, so many people here on TCS estimate 2 or 3 but she had 4 and all were perfect! I believe the kittens were stacked like sardines inside Bonnie as she was small for a full-term pregnancy.

I'm going to guess 5. It seems like 1 or 2 are always hidden in x-rays

She doesn't mind if you rub it, poor thing She constantly lays on her back with her belly exposed. It must be the only comfortable position.

It is so hard to say. My two pregnant girls had their xrays friday and the biggest girl showed for sure 5 and there could be one or two hidden. Then I have a very petite little girl (she is full grown and almost 2) I would have sworn she is only having at most 2 or 3. They saw a confirmed 6 possibly 7th skull. I can't believe it!!! I just don't know how that many babies could be in her little tiny belly????? They don't kick much and the vet said that was because they are so jammed packed. She is also having diarrhea becuase her bowels are shoved way out of the way. Give us good vibes to make it this week with no "cat" tastrophes.....Big girl' 65th day is today and little girl's
65th is friday!!

Oh Lele, you are so fortunate to have two girls expecting!! And they are going to be large litters too!!!! You must take video and share with us You know me, I love the baby sphynx LOL

I get my Monty this weekend!!!! Talked with the breeder today and he said the weather has improved dramatically so shipping is now much easier and Monty will be 10 weeks this week and is totally fine with me having him before 12 weeks. He said Monty is fully ready for his new home!!! I am just thrillled!!!

As I look at her belly, it screams a miniumum of 5 in there. She looks so content in the window too. I bet you are almost through the roof with anticipation for the upcoming births! I am with ya! I love helping deliver the babies even when not needed. I just like to be there and both my girls who had babies WANTED me there. It was so beautiful!

I have never actually been present for the birth of kittens. I had a foster cat that I waited on hand and foot. She waited until I went to the store (only gone 45 minutes) and she had her kittens I was really bummed. I don't know what to expect from Keller.

I have a feeling just by looking at her that she will let you know she's ready, like having contractions while laying on you. My Bonnie crawled into the bed under the covers and started having contractions and her water broke LOL. That was her way of saying "get up, it's time!"

Do you know about when she's due?

Friday is day 63 from the first day she got out. She was missing for 4 days so I am not absolutely sure. We don't have long but it seems like forever.

I guess 4!

Oooooo, your getting close!
Isn't the suspense incredible!
At least you have a rough idea...with Kiki, who was a foster cat, we were so sure it would happen any time, but it took 4 weeks!
Hehe, good luck Keller!

She is soooo uncomfortable today and keeps licking her tummy. She can't reach her rear end any more and I think it is driving her crazy. I hope she doesn't have much longer, she is just not able to relax.

My girl Oreo is on her 65th day today and she is expecting atleast 5 according to the xray last friday. The vet thought she would go within 48 last friday and today still nothing. I can't stand the waiting. I haven't slept good in a week....She is miserable too! Maybe tonight!! Sending good vibes you way

Oh, well, it's getting warmer now....any time!
Good luck everyone!

Keller's belly has disappeared some. I am assuming that she has "dropped" and the kittens are moving into position. I am wondering if I should put her in a room yet for privacy. She really isn't happy with Titan's return and I am afraid she won't relax.

I have been putting Oreo up when we are not at home and at night when we are sleeping. She is 66 days today.....uugggghhhhh! I keep thinking any moment. She is still eating so I don't have a clue when she will go. I can't wait.....

I let her hang out when we are home. She stays right by our sides so I can watch her.

Keller has been eating a lot the last few days. I have had foster cats that eat up until they delivered so it is hard to tell.

Her belly dropping is a good sign...
Wow, lele, she should be having them soon, especially with a large litter.

I wonder what colour the kittens will be...I heard that if one of the parents is white, the half the kittens will be too, but I'm not sure....I guess we'll have to wait and see. Once you see the kittens, you may be able to tell which of the strays you saw were the father...or not. I was always really confused because one time, we had two kittens-one tabby and white, one black-and the mother was tabby. So was the father white or black?I guess I'll never know...
Best wishes everyone!
for Keller and Oreo
