I would try reading some of the stickies on here, they should give you a lot of info. Good luck, and please keep her in until the babies are weaned and she can be spayed. Oh, and pics are a must.

The first thing to do is relax. Then, if she is due soon, make her up a nest with blankets, in a quiet room. A large dog crate works well, or a bathroom.
Once you have a nest ready, you can begin reading and then find out what questions you still have.
Did you get the JBT from a breeder? If so, he/she may be able to help, or may want to bring the cat to her home for the duration of pregnancy and delivery, and then when she is done weaning her kittens, the girl come back to you.
I wish you well, please keep us updated.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for you positive vibes, I posted under Emergency C-Section, but to update everyone here, Angel (mommy) went into labour about midnight on Friday April 21st, there was no hard labour and she seemed to be doing fine, Sat morning their were no kittens, I phoned emerge and our regular vet, both said that she was fine, by Sunday morning their were still no cats and she was really pushing. I ended up taking her to the Animal emergency hospital where they determined her birth canal was to narrow for the kittens to pass, she had an emergency C-section and had four kittens in her tummy, but only two made it. We named those two Luna and Aoki. She came out of surgery wonderfully and the kits are super healthy and active! Thanks for all the help out there. I will post as soon as I have pics developed (digital camera is on the fritz) and of course no flash

Glad she and the 2 are ok...
