need info quickly....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am new to the site, I have two male cats, both rescue. Never have one before, my daughter and I fell in love with them. I also feed about 5 strays this one stays in my patio. We took her in due to bad weather, and now it seems she might have babies, I do not have the money to take her to the vet just wondering if someone could help me, with what sighs to look for.

If you contact these groups and tell them about your situation..they may be able to cover the fee and then you wouldn't have to worry about her being pregnant or becoming pregnant.

Is she having kittens right now? Or do you think the birth is going to happen tonight? There is a wonderful reference here:


This site has loads of really good information - if delivery isn't happening right this moment, then take a few minutes to read the information on that site. It may help you to determine what steps to take next for your girl.

Best of luck,

The most humane thing to do is try to get her to a free spay operation. (IMO)

If she is pregnant -- and far along in her pregnancy -- her nipples will be visibly accentuated. A pregnancy last about ~65 days and I believe the nipples become noticeable around the 40 day mark. If cat is pregnant and somewhere between 40-65 days, then get ready for the pregnancy...see above link from gayef.

Try to give a call and ask them to suggest a solution. They probably have a list of individual vets in their network or whatever. Good luck!

I would recommend calling your local shelter and asking for information on low-cost spay/neuter in your area. Most shelters have this information. Then call the clinic directly and ask them if they will spay a visibly pregnant cat.

If all else fails, the 4 hour drive would be well worth it, especially to get all 5 cats fixed at once. Their lives will be so much better for it, and obviously it will be much more convenient for you not to have kittens born under your porch every year!
