A few pics of the new baby kitten

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Here are the pictures my girlfriend took of the new kitten with her mom. Judging from the size of her belly, I'm guessing there are probably still 2 more coming. I know there's at least 1 more in there, just not sure when it will decide to satisfy my lack of patience.

Thanks.


I am having so much trouble deciding what we're going to do with mom and the kitten(s). I've already grown to really like the mother, but she has made it clear since a few weeks ago that she's not all that interested in our kitten (born March 3rd) or our puppy who have taken quite an interest in meeting her and being her friend. This mother is one of the friendliest cats I've ever seen (except with other animals as I've found out) and I cannot bear to give her away but I have a feeling I will have to. But her kitten is a mirror image of her so there will be one cat staying here permanently after the kittens are ready to leave their mother.

Here's a few more pics of her I took the day I brought her in, about 3 weeks ago:

I wouldn't make the decision on whether or not you should keep her based on her behavior towards your other cat if you have only had her 3 weeks. Plus, all this time she was a pregnant mother, a little more defensive then normal and noww with kittens, she is probably going to seem a lot more defensive around your other cats.

Please wait until her kittens are weaned and she is spayed to even just begin seeing how long it takes her to get along with your other pets. Spaying will make a whole lot of difference. Dont judge her behavior after only 3 weeks and being pregnant on top of it all. It will all change when she is spayed.

Also, go through the whole interduction process again if you have to. They will get along. Buy a Feliway plug in, put a little pure vanilla extract on their bodies so they smell the same and every now and then bring something your other pets have been laying on into the room where she is and let her get used to the smell.

And remember that there is almost always hissing, spitting, growling and even swatting when cats meet. My cats still do this after 3 years of being together. As long as there is no blood shed, they are fine and will need to do a bit of this to figure out alpha status.

BTW your kitties are really cute!! Nothing like newborn babies!

No more kittens yet. I'll make sure to post when anything develops. She seemed to have some really slight contractions last night, but I'm not sure. Her body was tensing up just a bit, but there wasn't as much movement in her side as when she was going into labor a few nights ago. She still seems perfectly comfortable and happy, so it may still be a few days.

zoo---- not sure what others would say but since it has been this long I would take her to a vet and have them check her out and see if there is more in there or not.............

There are definitely more kittens in there, but I'm not worried about taking her to a vet at this point. She seems perfectly happy and content, not uncomfortable at all, and she is constantly rolling over when I pet her like she wants me to pet her belly just like when I first brought her in.
She is showing no signs of being uncomfortable, but I already notice a slight increase in her belly size. I thought that it wasn't uncommon for a cat to have litters from two different males and sometimes these litters would occur weeks apart. If so, I don't see anything to worry about if the cat is very happy and healthy, eating and drinking plenty and taking great care of her kitten, and really enjoying company when I come in to pet her and stay with her.
Honestly I think a change of scenery, and taking her and her kitten to the vet, would upset her and cause problems when there seems to be no problems to begin with.

No more kittens yet. The mother is still acting very happy though, just like the day I took her in a few weeks ago. Every time I get near her, she rolls onto her back and starts purring when I pet her belly.
The kitten already looks bigger, and seems very healthy. It still has a round little belly and basically stays curled up against the mother or curls up in a little ball and sleeps in the box when the mother goes a few feet away to lay down.
I will keep everyone updated if any more kittens decide to show up.
