Hi, I am on my second foster from PAWS, the 1st one was a very old, very sick cat who had to be put to sleep (I knew going into it, we wanted to make her last weeks as comfortable as possible)and now I picked up my new foster and she is very pregnant. I am supposed to keep her till she delivers and then when the kittens are weaned I bring her back to PAWS to be spayed and adopted out. I just wondered how you can tell how far along a cat is and when she is getting ready to have them. She is a stray so nobody knows how far along she is but is there a way of telling by looking at her? She has been here since Monday and her sides are sticking out further and further but her belly doesn't really "hang" much. Also, when she has the kittens, should I play with them so they are socialized even if she gets mad? I spend alot of time with her so she will trust me in case of any problems, I've never had a pregnant cat before so this is all new to me. Thanks for any help or advice!
