New and need help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello All,
I have just been looking at my cat and thought my shes getting big?
She was a rescue and the mother cat wouldnt feed her and wouldnt let humans come near her either so shes always been small.
So i picked her up which she wasnt very impressed at and her nipples are pink and swollen. I then realised that shes been in the house more and tired more.
Can you ladies look at the picture i tried to get of her nipples and tell me if you agree that shes pregnant?
How likely will it be a false pregnancy?
Thanks ladies your help.

It sounds like she is probably pregnant. If a female cat is over 4 months old, not spayed, and allowed outside (or any place there might be intact males), she is very likely to get pregnant in short order.

IMO its best to take her to the vet to be sure. Because if this cat/kitten is under 8 months old, you are looking at complications to continue the pregnancy. Do you have over $1500 for an emergency c-section if needed?

Yes, she seems to be pregnant.

I suspect GoldenKitty wants to say, it is medicinally OK to spay even if the cat is pregnant. With very young cats, or sick cats, this is even advisable. In such cases it is no ethical problem either.


Tx you are helping this kitten!

Good luck!

I have a pregnant stray right now and her nipples look exactly the same and she is pregnant. I thought she was only like 9 months old, but I took her to the vet and she is actually over a year old. They can tell by the teeth. I know you rescued it as a kitten, but I found that this will be her second litter to boot! We have about a week an a half to go before the kittens arrive.

Good luck and thank you for rescuing her

Keep us informed

Shes always been a house cat and shes over a year old, she just snuck past hubby one night when hubby came in from a late shift.
She is insured but i will check what/if it covers cat pregnancy. At the moment shes being kept in the room with some whiskers kitten food and 2 carboard boxes.
Thanks for the replies. x

It's good that you're keeping her in one room for now. You might want to take her to the vet as well, just to confirm pregnancy and see how far along she is.

How long ago did she get out?
