New to Forum with a pregnant cat!

Hi, I have a pregnant cat.. She is probably due around Aug. 3..
She is getting reallys big and you can feel the kittens moving it is so neat.

But I have a question. I am moving in 3 days and I was wondering if this is going to affect the feelings of my cat. Like will she end up killing her kittens or will she panic.. This is her first litter. I do not even know if she will know what to do when she starts to have her kittens..

Can someone answer me on this question?

Like how old she is, how long have you had her? usually when you move with a cat, you keep the cat confined inside the new place for a least a month until they get used to the move. Is it a far move? I wouldn't tranq her, not even with rescue remedy- though it really isn't a drug for fear of harming the kittens.

Welcome to the forums!

Since you are going to make the move anyway, just try to make it as stressless as possible. When the movers come make sure that she is safe in one empty locked room. Many cats panic when the movers arrive and escape and for the owners this is about the worst time to look for them.

At the new place, confine her first to one room. Make sure that all the windows and doors are locked. Gradually let her explore the rest of the house.

Each cat is different and it's hard to say how she will react. Be patient with her and expect some behavioral problems. If they do show up, be even more patient and show her only love and compassion.

By the way, please have her spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned and make sure that whoever adopts the kittens spays/neuters at the age of 5-6 months.

Welcome to the forums! I hope everything goes well with the move and getting your cat adjusted to it.

Welcome! I hope your move goes well. When you get to your new place, it's really important that you restrict her to one room. Set up this room as the kitten room so she can have her babies here too. It'll need to be a quiet room that can be closed off and doesn't get much traffic. If she doesn't feel comfortable in her room, she'll try to move the kittens, and you really don't want that. Make sure to have a kittening box, food, water, and litter box in the room for her.

Good luck, and keep us updated!
