Pregnant cats temperature - Page 2

post #31 of 53
Thread Starter 
Ok I'm finally back. She came out of the playroom and went to her litter box. she was squating like she really had to do something but only a tiny bit of pee came out. then she went to my bedroom and started for under my bed and i caught her and took her to the bathroom. I checked under her tail when i got her in the bathroom b/c while she was in here she kept stopping while she was walking and would like herself. anyways, i seen what looked like blood. also while i was watching her walk her sides like sunk in and she stopped walking for a second. So i am thinking it must have been a contraction???

She is NOT wanting to stay in the bathroom. When I opened the door just a little so I could get in there she ran out. So I am not making her go back if she doesnt want too. I will just keep a very close eye on her. I called my neighbor who has been through this a dozen times and has also studied some to become a vet and she is going to come over in a few minutes to check on her and let me know what she thinks.

Now that the excitement is narrowing down after I got stuck half under the bed....the waiting game is on! Gotta luv it! LMAO I've been doing the waiting game with my daughter since I took her to the hospital on Saturday and they said we'll see ya back in 24-48 hrs......ya, right!

She may want you to stay with her while she is in labor.
You can feel the contractions at first, and when they begin getting stronger, you should be able to actually see them. Most of my queens will make their whiskers go straight forward and will stretch their back legs out, when they are having very hard contractions. Some of our will purr all the way through delivery, and some will growl and squeal in pain. It can go smootly or it can be hard, it is just the individual experience.
She may want it to the light to be dimmed. If you have a large box, that can be covered on most sides that works well.
Is she still eating? Some Momma's will stop right when labor begins, but most of mine eat like they will never eat again all they way up until delivery.
I have always had good luck knowing how far away birthing is from taking the temperature, but you do have to know what the cats normal body temperature is. One of my girls runs a normal higher body temperature so when she drops to 100. then she is usually ready to go, where as some lowere down to 99. before labor begins. It does seem to be closer to 48 hours, though, or maybe I just watch the clock too closely when we are expecting.

She just layed around. Everytime I go to check on her when I first start petting her she is still doing this whining meowing noise, I had never heard it before lastnight. She didnt try to get outside this morning when i let my other animals out, which is not normal for her. Her belly looks really low today. This may sound crazy but do pregnant cats stomachs drop likes ours do when we get close to delivering? I havent had a chance yet to see if she has milk yet, I plan on doing that in a few minutes.

I wondered the same thing about 'dropping'. My friend told me that sometimes they do, but not always. I also checked for milk this morning and none coming out, but then again I don't want to hurt her either. It feels like swollen behind each nipple though, like a bag of milk up in there. I think I read somewhere that it is normal, but it is not down into her nipples yet. I can't recall where I read it...been doing so much reading! I did print up the section from here on pregnancy, labor and delivery in cats. I want to be prepared as best I can!

Ok she still doesnt have any milk in. I tried to take her temp but she is NOT having it right now. So I didnt force her or anything, I just let her be. She is cleaning herself quite a bit this morning and isnt very friendly. I swear in the last 3 days her belly has grown 2 times the size that it was. Its getting bigger and bigger. Does anyone know just how big the kittens get in like the last week or so?
post #44 of 53
yes they do drop and it can mean she is close Just try to rub her belly and you might get wet fingers from the milk It is close.

She hates the world right now. I am leaving her alone b/c she is not wanting to be messed with at all. I feel so bad for her. She has mood swings just like I had when I was pregnant (my poor husband) LOL. I talked to my husband after I did my post a little bit ago and we decided that if she doesnt have the babies by Monday we are going to make an appointment with the vet to see excatly when she may have them. I will sneak in there in a couple minutes and try to snap a picture of her.

LOL Moe hates the world right now as well! Today is her due date! She has been snooping in all the rooms and she was digging my couch cusions! Everytime I go to pet her she tries to attack me! She has been trying to get outside all day long. She is driving me CRAZY!! I don't know what to do! I can't put her in a room and shut the door because she scratches the doors up and the carpet up!
