A Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My name is Valarie, I have a cat named Patches who is about a year and a half old. I got her when she was about 7 weeks old and a little wild. She has become a very loving addition to our home. My question is she is now very pregant and I am worried about her, starting since yesterday she just lays around doing nothing I can pick her up she lays in my arms like a baby and I rub her tummy ( which she seems to enjoy ) but then I can lay her down and she just lays there. Normally she is active. I am trying to figure out if this is normal behavior for a very pregant cat or if there may be a problem that needs to be checked. She is still eating but no where near her normal amount. Yes I am going to have her fixed as soon as I can. Any help would be greatly helpful.

Hi Valerie, I am glad to see you made it.

I would take Patches to the vet if it were me. It could be that she is not pregnant, it could be what is termed a false pregnancy, or she could be full of kittens, but she should be checked just to be safe, and if she is not pregnant, I would like to suggest you spay her. She is old enough to be spayed and she will live longer and a much more comfortable life not having to deal with heat cycles.

Thank Hissy,
I am calling my vet in the morning. I did not plan for her to be pregant, my own stupidity. I can see and feel the kittens moving in her and my husband found a neighbors male hooked up to her about 2 months ago. Yes I am having her spayed as soon as she is able after the kittens. I also have a 3month old kitten who is getting spayed the first week of July. Yes I am very new to this years ago we had a cat who got pregant but you really couldn't tell she was pregant just looked like she gained a little weight then came home one day and she had 3 babies.
Thanks So Much,

Patches is completely fine and normal, she is just resting up for the big day.

Now the question is are YOU ready for her big day?

Start feeding her small amounts of food about 5 times a day if you can. You might see her appetite perk up, though most cats will stop eating 24 hours before they deliver the first kitten.

Thank you Hissy,
You have been really helpful. Any other suggestions by members would also be helpful, as I said before I am new at this, but very willing to learn.
