We love this litterbox! Works percectly, no smell, and no scooping! Our 2 month old new kitten took to it right away. She now weighs a little over 3 lbs. and it now recognizes when shes been in it...
Oh my gosh, I've been looking to replace Robins favorite toy, which was inadvertently thrown out two years ago. Nobody likes to be woken up at night, but everyone loves the sound of crickets, so it...
My favorite litter
My cats seem to enjoy this food. It's a good price for the quality imo . Even the Sensative cat that barfs has kept it down.:D
This is supposed to be less traumatic on nervous cats than clipping their claws and my experience bears that out. Both Chula and Paul hung around afterward to check it out, instead of bolting for...
mucus plug?post #1 of 147/19/13 at 1:48pmThread StarterHi! My kitty Lola is 63ish days pregnant today. She has been unable to reach her privates as of late, so I've been cleaning her with fragrance-free baby wipes. I noticed today that she had a bit of brownish goo coming out...I've researched what mucus plugs look like and hers isn't like the stringy ones I've seen online, just a bit of what I think may be old blood. Wondering if this could be the mucus plug beginning to make its way out? Also wondering after she loses the actual plug, about how long til she gives birth? Thank you for any and all advice. I'm very nervous for her, and I've never had a pregnant cat before.post #2 of 147/19/13 at 2:41pm
Its probably some discharge she has. Which they may have, and often there is a little traces of blood in it. Its why it looks brownish.
When the mucus - often greenish, but not always clear cut so, goes, often/usually the delivery comes soon, in hours. But we had forumites here where it took another week more. So not even mucus plug going is any safe sign... The Waiting game. :)post #3 of 147/19/13 at 6:29pmThread Starter
Waiting games are horrible...lol I've read a few other threads on here and have been dreading my own waiting game. =P Thanks for the reply...I doubt its going to happen any time soon. She seems tired and hungry in waves, but overall she isn't showing any other signs and the discharge...whatever it was...has stopped.post #4 of 147/20/13 at 12:21amThread StarterOh boy...turning into a long night. Lola is currently digging into the layers of blankets on my bed. She keeps crawling under the covers which is something she hasn't done since she was a kitten. She seems restless and more vocal as well. She has little interest in the room (yes...her own "birthing suite" aka the extra room) made up for her but I'm almost positive its because I'm not in there with her. Should I start sleeping in there with her? She can't have her babies in my bedroom because I have an air conditioner in it. Way too cold for kittens. Her room is right next to mine and much much warmer. Any thoughts on whether a room can be too warm for kittens? It can get pretty warm in there depending on how warm it is outside.post #5 of 147/20/13 at 12:33am
She seems to be on. If it is precontractions or beginning of real labor, difficult to say.
They often take to their nest in the very last moment, they dont want to get it smelly too early.
But if it possible for you to rig up a sleeping place in her room, it is surely a wise idea.
I dont have the exact temperature recommendations. But you have right, too warm is not good for them, can be almost as dangerous as too cold. I presume you must play it by the ear at hot days.
Good luck!post #6 of 147/20/13 at 1:56pmThread StarterWell Ms. Lola is still nesting a lot with small naps in between. I had 3 boxes set up for her and she's been digging in all of them but seems to have designated a certain one. She wants me next to her all the time, so for the time being I am also confined to her room. She's rubbing up against everything and everyone! Extremely restless, and I took her temp this morning. She was 101 yesterday and today she's 99. So fingers crossed that my waiting game will be a short one!post #7 of 147/20/13 at 7:08pmThread Starterpost #8 of 147/20/13 at 7:45pmpost #9 of 147/20/13 at 9:19pmpost #10 of 147/20/13 at 9:36pmThread StarterHelp! Didn't see 3rd babies placenta....when 4th baby came...I thought maybe baby number 3's placenta would have come out but I still didn't see it. I may have missed her eating it because she was hard at work but I just don't know. Kind of freaking out a bit! Advice please....still not sure that she's done.post #11 of 147/20/13 at 10:29pmThread StarterNever mind! Jumped the gun there. Placenta came out. I wonder if this means she's done. Longest 3 hours of my life...she's exhausted and I'm sleepy. Time for bed. Will update with photos soon.post #12 of 147/20/13 at 11:42pmThread StarterOkay...so my Lola girl had 5 kittens all together. All placentas now accounted for. She had 4 white kittens...and one black/gray tabby...its really hard to tell if she is done as she still seems quite needy with me. Trying to let them rest and bond but every now and then she follows me to the door and meows. Fingers crossed that there are no more babies. Aside from the slight placenta scare...I'm surprised at how well and fast the birthing process went for her. Now we're hopefully all going to get our rest. Will upload photos to my profile since I can't seem to load photos from my phone into this thread.post #13 of 1412/16/14 at 10:49pm
Your funny... because you remind me so much of myself! Our first litter of Savannahs... I made a plastic cover to cover the maturnity cage, as if I would ever cage my catz. It was September... and I stressed about everything, having lost a litter from this same girl. Now? Well, her "baby" Princess Kyro is VERY hugely pregnant.... and just lost her plug. Its my night to lose sleep and stress! I have such a tiny in-home cattery... and am new to this. We do have 4 kittens in the next room, that are 9 weeks old, so it's not been real long since I went thru this. I HOPE I remember to give her the calcium paste after each kitten... something I forgot with Khloe! >^..^<post #14 of 1412/17/14 at 12:14amQuote:Originally Posted by Kat Canto

Ah, calcium paste? What is the brand? Where do you get it? Do the cats like it, from your experience and knowledge? It may be useful to know.
With "giving after each kitten" I suppose you mean during the birth, to prevent calcium deficiency symptoms? It seldom its necessary if they have a full worth food, but it is still wise to be prepared, and to have the remedies handy. After all, this symptom uncommon but do appears now and then. So all tips are welcome!
