I am new to the board, but not new to cats! LOL I have loved animals all my life, of all kinds, and have been raising siamese cats for over 14 yrs. I haven't had a litter in a few years though, and am now not sure if one of my girls is expecting or not. It's kind of a long story so I'll try to sum it up. A woman called me, who had bought 2 kittens from me 3 years ago. She couldn't keep them due to allergies so I told her I would take them back. She kept them healthy, well fed, vaccinated, and obviously well loved, however she did not spay them as stated in our agreement. That is a moot point now that I have them back anyway... The one I had spayed, the other I decided to keep intact as she turned out very nicely. The woman said she had an ''accidental'' litter a year ago, but only one kitten was born. I decided to put her with my male when she came into heat, about 10 months ago (I've had them back for a little over a year). Anyway, nothing happened. She has since come into heat several times and each time nothing happened. She has not come into heat "that I know of" since x mas, but now appears to be pregnant. She looks noticebly bigger in the tummy, is eating more etc, she does not have worms, nor can anything be palpated. I wondered if anyone has experienced a cat who only had one kitten and if there is anything in particular I can look for? If she is pregnant and only has one baby again I will be getting her spayed, but it would be nice if she had a normal litter. Her tummy looks big enough to be past the stage where anything can be felt by palpating anyway, so the only thing I can think of is wait and see... but I have no patience...LOL By the way, she REALLY hates going to the vet, so I don't want to take her in just to find out, it would be too stressfull.
