I've been keeping a very close eye on her, she is my babycat
So now I am hoping for a two to three kitten litter... Is three really a little old to have babies? Hmmm....
I check her every day, when I don't see her for a while (like when I get back from shopping, or work. I'll wait until she wants in my lap, then just look her over to note any changes.) Still, this morning her little... girlie thing, looked just as it has for as long as I've been checking. I Look for any discharge, redness, blood... anything unusual. I rub my hand down her back, and on her sides, as well as a nice little tummy rub. To me she feels more lumpy than yesterday. She also seems like she's got lots of loose skin on her tummy, like extra ??
I checked her nips, pinker today than yesterday, though NOT puffy
is that bad? Shouldn't she be filling with milk already? They are also pink around them now, as apposed to the normal white color the skin has.
She still won't let me leave her sight, although she seems a little more distant today. She didn't want to sit in my lap this morning, so checking her was a little dificult, but I did so quickly, then she climbed into one of her little cubby-holes.
Last night, she was curled up in my lap, and I swear I felt twitches in her belly on my leg. I also laid my hand on the other side of her tummy after that, and thought I felt something there too. She's sooo purry too.
Her eyes are still bright. She played a little with a string last night!! YAY!! She wouldn't chase it, but when it was close enough, she either clawed it, or bit it. She is such a serious player, especially with her fave toys. I have to hang them on the ceiling where she can't get them, because usually (when she is herself) She will hide them from me, and I think eat them. I've found a few destroyed toys. Her play mice, I tear the tails off before she gets them, cuz she will eat them. I also rip out the eyes, and nose, for fear of choking. She is nicer to the play mice, then feathers, strings, or anything that flies like a bird. (interesting note. We had 2 cockatiels that we didn't cage, they had free roam of our house. MyRage used to sit in the window near their cage, and the two birds would sit next to her looking out the window. Rage only got mad at them when they started preening her... she must not like inter-species relationships? She NEVER EVER attacked them or anything. We gave them away, because we were moving, and taking Mystyc. Mystyc LOVES to hunt, and we knew those birds woldn't be safe even in a cage with her around.)
If she had dead kitten(s) in her, could it make her sick? Woudl they grow larger, the closer she got? I've thought about that, if she had a dead kitten in there before. I will try to get her a vet appointment today if I can. Depends on if she will let me pay her later, lol.
Does anyone have, or know where to find good info on false pregnancies? I kinda think she has kittens in there cuz she is so lumpy. I try really hard not to touch her too much. I am scared of hurting her, and her babies.
thanks for the help, I'll keep updating. Even if nobody reads, cuz I like to compare my notes from day to day. GREAT JOURNAL!!!
