New Pregnant Mom

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi-My cat Kitty snuck out the door a couple of months ago and was gone for a couple of days. I think she got out around mid -January. I think she's due any day now. Her nipples have been leaking milk and the babies are quite active. She's done some nesting around the house- nosing around mostly. I set up a box in my closet for her and she will have nothing to do with it so everywhere I've seen her go hide and stay in, I've made mini nest for her. Plastic bag, newspaper and old towel. She's been following me around a little too. It's been years since we've had a pregnant cat.
If I could figure out how to do a pic, I would.

Welcome to TCS! Bummer your kitty got out before you had the chance to have her spayed.

Are you going to adopt the kitties out after she's raised them? It's always a good idea to have them spayed and neutered before they go to their new homes. They can safely be spayed or neutered as young as seven weeks old!

If you need help finding a low-cost place to do it, you can search here:


You can also search at http://www.petfinder.com. Just scroll through all the cat listings in your area - each cat has an organization, and each org listed has a link to contact info! If they don't provide free or low-cost spay/neutering, they may know who does.

Hope all goes well for the mum. Once those kitties are 12 weeks old, I hope you're able to get her spayed!

Good luck,

My brother's cat was pregnant and he set up a lovely box for her. Of course she didn't pay it one bit of attention. So he was sure she'd have her babies in some random, inappropriate place. But, low and behold, one day he woke up and there was Momma in the box with her babies! So, here's hoping yours will do the same. Good luck to you and Momma!

If she has milk, it shouldn't take more than a few days. Keep her isolated in a room, and keep a close eye on her...not much more that I can say, only good luck to you and her
If you have any pics, we'd love to see
Keep us updated on how she is!
