Hello and thanks already... (stray kitty rescue)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have been checking out this message board for 3 or more weeks now and have gotten some good information already. Its good to find this resource. My hubby and I have 3 cats of my own, all spayed and nuetered, three dogs, spayed and nuetered and 4 birds, so our house is full.

I rescued a stray, pregnant kitty and I now have her and four kittens, we lost one. I just couldn't stand to let her haver her kittens outside, I found her where I work. Everything has been going relatively well, and Mia (my name for her) has been a pretty good kitty and is not really feral at all. I have homes for most of the kittens and maybe the mother cat, after she's spayed, etc.

For the most part Mia has been in the bedroom with her kittens who are 4 weeks old on Sunday, I have attempted to let her out with my other animals for very short periods. Before she had the kittens She went after one of my dogs, no injuries but it was really weird. Since she's had the kittens, she went after 2 more of our cats, no injuries, just a lot of scary noises. As I said she's hasn't been out with everyone very long and not all incidences were bad. Mia is a really sweet kitty to me and other people, she does seem grateful. Mia is not overprotective when I show off the kittens either, she just looks concerned.

Just wondering if anyone can help me figure this out, I want to get Mia a good home but I don't want her going after someone elses kitty and I think she might be best in a solo pet home, no one I know has zero pets. Could this be all related to her pregnancy or not??

I saw the recommendations for Feliway and I'm going to get some. Thanks for any help

Hi and welcome to TCS!

I'm so pleased that you've been able to find some helpful and informative advice!

You definitely do have a full house, especially at the moment!

Regarding your questions about finding a home for Mia, you might like to post about it in Cats S.O.S (Although, a Mod might know of a more appropriate forum!) where more people will be able to see it and offer advice!

I look forward to hearing more about your fur family and getting to know you in the other forums!

You got your hands full with all those pets! You are a very kind person to help the pregnant cat have a home while having her kittens. I am thinking she is just overprotective right now and if you did find a home for her with other cats it will just be a slow transition for her to get used to the other pets. As long as she is spayed and she has space to get away from the other pets she should be fine. All animals are differant but all you can do is try and see if it works. You can always tell the person that takes her, if she seems to not be getting used to ther other pets and is visious towards them after a couple of weeks to please have them bring it back to you so you can find a home with no pets. Good luck!

Hello and welcome to TCS.

It was very kind of you to take in a stray queen. You probably saved those kittens lives. As for your question, I would suggest trying to find her a solo home first or warn prospective homes that she may not be good with other pets. Her agressive behavior very well could have to do with her pregnancy and protecting her kittens and she could mellow out once they are gone to their furever homes. I would suggest checking out the pregnant cat and kitten care forum for more advice and I hope you the best of luck. I can't wait to get to know you and your furfamily better on the other forums soon and keep us posted,
