I tried to ask where I should post this stuff (I have a stray who is ready to deliver any minute) and I don't believe I got an answer, maybe I did, but I must not have seen it. So I guess I am in the wrong place as well. I asked it in the first post that I posted on New Cats on the Block. I don't believe anyone answered where I should post a qeustion about a pregnant cat. In fact, I saw in the Health part where something was moved to the breeders part that was about a pregnant cat (not necessarily a bred cat).
What *IS* the more appropriate section, if you don't mind me asking?
Summing it up for me personally... I have a rescue cat that we may keep who is pregnant (and please no one start, she will be fixed as soon as possible... I saved her from having her babies aborted and from having being killed at a kill shelter). I had questions about the pregnancy in general. I posted here as I read other posts that weren't necessarily breeders posts were here, and no one could answer that question for me... I guess I was wrong?
So where does this fit?
In my opinion, there should be more specifics, it would save a lot of problems and stepped on toes. In Health and Nutrition, you don't get much response for pregnant cats. In Breeders room, yes you do. It's about labor... signs of labor... etc. and only people who have BEEN THERE DONE THAT are going to be able to help and share. It's not about breeding or not breeding, it is about labor which only certain people have experienced. People who have been through a pregnant cat who aren't breeders don't necessarily "live it" every day and may not be as interested in talking about it every time you turn around.
JMHO but there should be some specifics for people passing through here...
Maybe I am just overly sensitive but I have worked way too hard to establish myself in life, I don't have time for the petty stuff.... so sorry, but I'm outta here... just can't see having to walk on eggshells worrying about where I put something. I just don't have time for this. Being on the net is not a priority I feel I need to put any more energy into.
