I wish I could have, but it wouldn't have done any good in case of an emergency, the way he sounded he wouldn't see her any way because his first question was if she had her shots or not, and I told him no, and after that he turned jerky. I don't usually go to him because he has a bad habit of killing pets (my mom's personal and other people's experiences), I was just calling him for advice on her condition since it had been so long since she had a contraction. My usual vet is wonderful but I do not want to call the emergency number unless it is a real emergency. I am hoping it is a good sign that she is still nesting.

I knew I should have become a vet. A friend and I were talking the other day about going to school and becoming vets in our town because we only have 1 (the jerk) and being the type of vet that would see an animal regardless of income, shots, and actually care about the animals and not the money part of it.

My daughters cat, Sponge, just had babies on Wednesday. She ended up having 5. It took her a little over 8 hours to have all of them. She would have one and then sleep for a little bit. If I wasnt right there she would try to follow me around. When she started to get up and come to me when she had a kittens head hanging out of her I decided then that I needed to stay right next to her. So I would suggest you get you a drink and a snack and get comfy next to her and pet her. LOL At one timewhen Sponge was pushing a baby out she was in a lot of pain and bit me twice and then scratched me. I know that she wasnt trying to be mean, just in so much pain. So you may want to watch out if Isis starts to push a baby out.
Also I could tell when Sponge was done and when she wasnt. If you push on her sides (not hard at all, just real easy), can you feel anything hard? I could tell by doing that if she had anymore babies or not. If Isis doesnt have anymore babies by this evening I think I could call the emergency number you have to your vet just to be safe. You dont want anything to happen to her.
Good Luck with her!

I hate to be the voice of paranoia, but I lost a kitty who had two kittens, and still appeared to be pregnant. This was years ago, an outside kitty (barn cat). I had gotten my other 2 girls spayed, but let her have one more litter because she was such a good Mom. She gave birth to the two, and I never saw any problems, but she was outside, so I didn't watch her around the clock.

Two days later, she died. We lost the kittens, too.

I'm not saying your kitty is in distress, but please call the emergency number of your vet, to get his input. And then at least he will be forwarned in case she does run into trouble tonight.

Even if someone's kitty had some premature, and more later, I would not trust letting a kitty go too long. I don't know the exact time frame, but will look in the sticky's at the top of the forum to check.

She has gone this long since the first kitten, I would definitely be on the phone with the vet, or in the car headed there.

Sorry about the kitten you lost.

I agree with calling a vet, I hope Isis is okay.

A cat CAN die trying to give birth and not being able to - my friend's cat did!

Youre right, I'm the one who mentioned the other kitty who had preterm kittens, then more later,.....that is something to be hopeful for, but every cat is different, each situation different, so it should not be assumed that because that CAN happen, that it WILL happen. Good luck tio ISIS...
I really hope things clear up for you soon!!All my best wishes, Annie

I would definatly get her to the vet, even if just for a simple x-ray to determine what's going on. I lost a mother after she delivered 3 kittens & then just stopped so I took her in to the vet to find out there was a kitten sideways in her uterine horn they said was dead, So she had to have a c-section, She was a copper eyed white persian with 3 blue & white babies thus far, The vet came out & told me that she didn't make it But the kitten...A copper eyed white was alive. What an angel...I hand raised all 4 & they are now in wonderful homes But that's a tough row to sow...Sorry rambling, Just soo much can go wrong, Please have her seen.

New update on Isis.....I never felt anymore kittens, and the vet around here is a major jerk and the next closest one is over an hour away, so we waited it out, about 1:50a.m. Tennessee time, another kitten is born. Isis had a hard time getting the head out (butt first) but the little one is breathing on it's own, however it's extremities are cold and it's not really moving except just breathing, so that leads me to believe that this one may not make it either, I think they are pre mature.

How are baby and Isis doing this morning? Sarabi's kitten Miracle was breech, and she had some trouble delivering him. But he was born fairly quickly after the others, within a few hours, so didn't suffer too much distress in delivery. It was touch and go for him at first, though.

Are the kittens all furry, or are they partially bare? I think that is the best way to know if they are too early. I'm so sorry she is having trouble delivering the kittens.

make sure that kitten stays warm. She looks pretty darn big to me!!Congratulations!! I'm so hapyy Isis has a baby!!She looks like she's nursing in the picture..that's great!! The one good thing about having only one kitten is she will get all of mommas attention (and milk!)
