OMG, what do I do...if anything

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Keller just came out of the litterbox with about 1/4 in of the baby sticking out. It just looks like a rust colored bag but I am sure that is what it is. I put her in her bed but she doesn't seem to really be doing anything. How long before I help her? She is trying to get to that area but she is too big.

Here is a site that might help.

How long should I wait? It has been about 20 minutes and it is about 3/4 way out. Should I pull on it? I am freaking out a bit.

I have no advice at all. I just was wondering what was happening now. Did you go to that website?

Ok, I pulled the bag and bloody liquid came out but no baby was in it. I am really scared now.

Initially pinkish-yellow fluid may be expelled from the vagina or a "bag of water" may protrude. If a "bag of water" is seen, break the bag - the idea is much like trying to put a penny in a balloon through a small tube, it is easier if the balloon is deflated.

That was from the website. I bet that was the bag of water, so it's probably okay. Maybe you could PM a breeder. Go to the breeders corner and find one. Maybe they can help you.

It might have been the water bag.
If it was it will be ok.
What is she doing right now?
Have you seen contractions?

She is just laying in her bed very quiet. She doesn't appear to be having contractions. Ohhh, this is making me crazy.

Has your vet called yet?

I hope the contractions start soon.

The vet called. She is starting to make some noise but it is just squeaks. If nothing is happening in an hour we are going to the vets office. Please pray she delivers safely and on her own.

Prayers for her to be ok.

Well...things got really ugly and I ended up taking her in for an emergency c-section. The first kitten was breech and he said her birth canal was narrow. She had 6 kittens...only 4 made it. She also doesn't have any milk. The vet gave her a shot to bring her milk in but it looks like I will be up supplementing tonight. Please continue to pray that her kittens survive.

That is terrible.
So sorry that happened.
I hope the rest will live.

She is home...and doing well. We have 3 white kittens and one white and gray tabby. I will get pictures when everyone has settled a bit.

They are cuties! I hope they do good tonight and I hope Keller's milk comes in. They are in my office so I can be close all day long.

Now that they are all here I am a little worried about the cost of the c-section, after hours is probably more too! I know it couldn't be avoided. They also spayed Keller too so we don't have this problem again.
post #19 of 27
Did the kitten that was breech die?
At least the spay was done at the same time so you will not ahve to worry about that.
I would watch the kitten closely to make sure they are ok.

So, they bill you later? You don't know how much it was? There was no way to avoid it, and you certainly did the right thing... I can't wait to see them - we have been waiting for this day for a looooong time!

This is a very small town and the vet comes in from home. He doesn't really know the computer system so the girls will bill this morning They will also let me make payments. They are a very understanding clinic. I will get some pictures later on this morning. All but one little white kitten are eating like pros.

Hope everything is going well now. Sorry she had so many problems. Here's vibes for mom and kittens.
