Pregnant Cat with bloody discharge...?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Our cat is very pregnant(about60-65 days) and since yesterday afternoon she has had small amounts of bloody/mucusy discharge,she also doesn't want to eat or drink and she pants alot,she also doesn't want to be left alone at all..?Is all of this normal for a pregnant cat or should we be worried???

Sounds like delivery time is nearby. Have your vet's phone number handy just in case, and be sure to read the stuck threads in this forum that will prepare you for what is ahead. Spotting before pregnancy is normal, flowing blood is not.

Hi, forgive me if you've already stated elsewhere that you have done this, but if you haven't read the sticky message in this forum, with links to discussions on labor and delivery, kitten care etc., you would find it helpful I think. Here is the link to that thread: http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=74659

Generally speaking, seeing a bloody show like that means the cat will deliver within 36 hours. The panting may mean she's contracting, and it will be important for you to figure out if she's straining/pushing at all with no results. Is she settled in one room, does she have a birthing box or area with towels or what have you set up? Will she stay still and let you sit with her? I'd look to see if she's doing any kind of lying on her side, arching her back and pushing (whiskers will flick forward as well when pushing, at least mine always did this), or is she squatting in her litter box trying to push as if constipated?

Do you have a vet who has seen her during this pregnancy, that you can call for guidance if you are unsure if she's in distress?

Please do go read the thread, be sure she has a safe,quiet, clean area to deliver, be sure you know the signs of labor distress and are clear on when to call the vet...and keep us posted!

So far she is just laying on our sofa ( it's the only place she will stay) with lots of comforters,she looks very tired but she doesn't seem to be stressed or straining.She won't let us leave her side at all and this is usually not her personality.Candy is the kind of cat that likes to be by herself all the time but ever since yesterday (since she started having discharge)she wants us with her all the time.If we get up and go to another room she runs after us meowing or rubbing on our feet.She also is panting but not constantly,it's more like once or twice an hour.We have had cats have kittens before so we are not completely new at this but when our other cat had kittens they just popped right out unexpectedly.It has been a while and we just want to make sure that this is normal.She did see our vet in the beginning of her pregnancy and we do have his number on hand in case of emergency.Any advice is greatly appreciated,we will keep you updated if anything happens...Thanks a million everyone (not just for the advice) but also for caring

hey you should stay with her. she needs you. when our cat slappy was going into labor she waited till my brother got home and was by her side to start pushing. keep rubber gloves to with u in case she cant reach a baby to get it outta the casing. My brother had to open the casing so the baby wouldnt die. Also take lots of picture so we can see all the lil buddles of joy

Definately sounds like there will be babies very very soon! You may want to try to direct her to a more suitable room with a nesting box or something. We just had kittens last week and it was quite a mess. You don't want her to deliver on your couch. Keep us updated!

Oh I can't wait to hear congrats!



When I was growing up we had one Queen that was our "main" breeder (she only had 4 litters the whole time we had her so not like we over bred her) and she ALWAYS waited till my father got home before she had her kittens. one day she ran around panting in labor ALL day. he got home from work and she ran up to his room, he didn't follow, so she ran back down meowed, then back up till finally her 2nd trip he followed and BOOM out came a kitten about 3 min later! LOL poor cat was dying to get that baby out! But wouldn't do it without my dad at her side.

How did things go? How many did she have? Is she a good, proud new mommy in her nesting box with her new family? I hope all was good.
