Baby didn't eat alot the last couple of weeks before she delivered either. She binged, I used to tease her and call her a binge eater. I am sure those kittens are taking up her stomach space and she doesn't feel much like eating. Then the hunger just overwhelms her and she must eat to sustain herself and her little ones. She is just getting ready the pretty little boat.

One of my own babies was 10 lb, 5 oz and I know just how she feels ...it was this sense of needing the food but not being able to cope with it once it got down the hatch.

Okay, found the thread Mom Good luck to you too.

Poior Skittles. She look like she's not only carrying kittens, but they're bringing bags of their own litter and food with them. LOL

If she's eating again, that's a good sign. Don't forget she's also not moving around as much as she used to so she probably isn't as hungry for that reason too.

Wait until she's nursing. She'll eat everything and more.

Hmm... Sounds like she might be getting closer? Do cats get Braxton-Hicks? She's not that far away now, is she?(from her due date).

Poor thing. She looks so footballesque!

Her due date is May 19th the latest. I know I was told by the Vet April 14th She was pregnant at least 25-30 days Then I went April 24th she had xray done. She has 6+ babies and big... So I have no clue when she is really do...Right now she is wondering and licking her tummy. She is losing fur like nothing.

She may be in early labor if she is wriggling up her face, I don't know if they have Braxton Hicks, I hated those things. I was always so sure they were the real thing. By my 5th child I refused to leave the house until my kids and my coach were begging me lol. I think she is ready to go any day now, it won't be long now.

SHe is in the hall cleaning her belly like crazy I wonder. I will let her be and see what happenes. I am sure she isnt due till May 16 earliest

Be ready ! It's been a really long time since my cat had kittens, but it is sounding quite familiar, the more you talk about it...Maybe she is a little further along than they think. Even if they are off by 3 days, and she has them 2 or 3 days early because of how many she has...Can't wait for baby pictures !

I am going to take her to bed. She sleeps with me every night. She even meows for me to get my butt to bed so off I go. I will post if anything changes.

If you see her whiskers coming forward together towards her nose I'd say that's a contraction, but maybe she is just stretching.

leave in hour and the bugger ate a cup of kibble. Most she has eaten in 8 days.. Of course she must know she is going to the vet.. But she is also playful. I woke up to her tangled up in my hair. Playing like a kitty.

Oh my! Will be praying for a safe, quick and easy delivery!
post #28 of 29
Good luck to you and Skittles. She is huge, uncomfortable-looking, but a very pretty mom-to-be!

Prayers sent to you that everything goes well, and that her big litter is healthy, and that her delivery goes smoothly. It sounds like you are right on top of everything, and that's the best you can do!

Hope she delivers them soon...what a relief to Skittles, and you as well!!! Here's to a big hoard of baby kitties!!!
