is it 2 aprox. 2 weeks until delivery that you start feeling the kittens move or seeing the kittens move or both? (does my question make sence?)

yes it does. and yes, its 2 weeks, (give or take a few days) before birth when you start to see and feel movement.

im wondering if missy is overdue ???? im sure its been at least 3 weeks were i have felt definent movements as we dont know her history and the vet was very vague all he said was soon do you think i ought to take her to the vets ?

it was about 3 weeks after i felt movement in Icis that she had the babies, but i was looking everyday, so i prob felt them early. i wouldnt worry yet. you could always call the vet just to make yourself feel better tho.

i did for the week that she was due. her temp went from 101.3 to 98.0, and 5 days later she went into labor, so temp isnt REALLY a good sing in ALL cats. best sign is panting.

with this heat she pants everytime she moves i didnt like the thought of doing her temp. i will just have to let nature take its course, im so nervous ive bought everything i need for the birth just in case we have problems i pray that we dont but as the vet she is just over 1 herself i believe there is a chance that she could have problems with the birth. do you know what the average number of resperations per minute is normal for a cat ???

not offhand. but i dont know it wasent a " im hot " pant, she would curl her lips and made funny faces.

hmm.. i have been able to feel "fluttering" movement since july 1st. that is why i thought she would have been due the 14th since that is 2 weeks after they moved but now it has been almost 4 weeks since they have been moving.... and i just saw them move for the first time yesterday.

Jessie it seems like you and I are in the same boat!

I watched her this morning and the movement is VERY noticable. Hopefully this is a good sign! I haven't looked at her too much because she likes to stay by herself. I would try to pick her up once a day and hold her for a few minutes just to 'feel' how things are going. She doesn't like to be held, she is NOT a lap cat!

She had better have them soon or they will come out full grown!

jsut be careful when they are born. mine came out with some stool in the sacs, meaning they WERE overdue. just keep a sharp eye in the babies breathing if that happens.

I don't believe she is OVERdue but who knows!
I think it is because she has always been a small, slight cat, that she is uncomfortable.
If she doesn'thave them by the end of the weekend, I may see if the vet will just take a quick look at her and give me his opinion.
As for the new food, I did introduce it to her slowly but she just doesn't like it very much. I do happen to have some canned salmon so maybe I will put a little of that in there and she how she takes it.

Kitty doesnt like to be held either. lol. i think that the kitten in there has his back turned or something because i can feel the shape of his body but it is hard to feel/see him move. if she hasnt had them by next wed. then i might see if my mom and i can go get her checked out.

I have been watching for movement and feeling and all I am getting now is the occasional kick. But she is so big I imagine that they are running out of room I was supposed to go camping this weekend and had to call it off. I would never forgive myself if something went wrong and I wasn't here.

Well I must say that there is definetly movement in Spots! When she lays still for any amount of time, I can see them move---they remind me of little aliens or something trying to get out of her body!
