Adopted Pregnant Cat

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I adopted a pregnant cat from a woman who is having some problems and not able to care for her properly. (After being sure of placement for the kittens, of course!).

Momma kitty is about ready to have her kittens, although the woman wasn't sure how far along she was.

I was wondering if anyone knew some less noticable yet more distinct signs then the traditional eating less and being less affectionate and withdrawn and such??

This would be very helpful since I don't know her normal behaviors and she is probably going to be a bit withdrawn being in a new home with new people and our other cats.

I'd just like to be able to be more ready for them when they come to be able to check on her every now and then to see when she might be closer to giving birth and to make sure everything's going smoothly.

I'm familiar with pet guard and enjoy their low cost spay and neutering. =) I'm aware of the common signs, I was just wondering if there were something a little less noticable I could look for since I'm not familiar with her behaviors yet.

Best thing to do is to read through the posts....there are several ones where people describe their personal experiences with pregnant cats.
