Is she there yet? so confused

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My cat Sunshine is 60-61 days prego. She is eating up a storm. She started her nesting about 3 days ago. Scatching and meowing. She goes to the basement for a few minutes than comes upstairs. This has been going on all day. Would that be considered restlessness? What do hiccups look like. I hear they are a sign of impending labor. She loves to have her tummy rubbed and sleeps all day. Earlier today she was licking herself a lot but then stopped. I am so confused. I wanna make sure I am there for her but I also want to make sure I am reading her signs correctly. Do cats still pee and poop right up until delivery? I need help. Anyone with answers? Share your experiences with me. darc

Thanks that is good to know. I thought for sure last night was the night. Her belly felt hard. I saw her doing some nesting last night. I thought she just didn't want me around and was holding out. She still eats like no tomorrow. I am constantly checking her liter box and she still is peeing and pooping. Do cats stop that before going to labor? I figure she won't have them during the day. Maybe tonight is the night. Send labor vibes this way o.k. We are going to take my son out for his b- day tonight. He wants to see a movie. Watch she will have them while I am gone. I think I am going nuts. I had a dream last night that she had her babies. You would think I was pregnant. I will def keep you posted. I am sure I will be posting all day. Pray all goes well for Sunshine.Talk to ya soon. darc

O.k. She has been doing a lot of snooping around now. I confined her to the closet I originally had her in. (she hated it). My son last night made a bed for the dog and Sunshine seems to have taking a liking to it. So I put that there in the closet and she went in it Earlier she was in the spot I had for her but when she was snooping I moved my sons bed to the closet where it much more quiet. I am guessing she will have them tonight. Hopefully. I sure hope its not wishful thinking.

mine is eating me out of my house! I wish Sunshine would loose her mucus plug already. I think she is teasing me. when she is not snooping around she is in the basement lying on the cool tiles. I hope she does not have the kittys there. It is not the right temp. I am so excited too. I lie on the floor and pet Sunshine a lot. My 12 year old son asked me why I was so obsessed with her I guess I am just anxious to see her babies. Don't want to miss it. I think thats why she is holding out. This is pure torture. Wouldn't it be funny if our cats had there kitties the same day? I'll keep you posted.

Nothing yet. How many days have you found that your cat delivered? Can't remember if you told me how many in the past. It has been about 61-62 for Sunshine. I know every cat is different but what has been the average for your guys. She is starting to lick herself more. I have not noticed if she lost her mucus plug though. When the dog comes up to her she licks him. He just stands there. He loves it. When she stops he will nudge her to lick him so more. It is so cute. I am wondering if she is going to wait till the evening to have her babies. Q- How do you know if the hiccups are not just hiccups and not mini contractions? How far apart would they be? gotta go. Keep you posted. How are things there? darc

Hi there
Here is a link that sort of a what to expect when you're expecting link:
It helped me out heaps when I was waiting on my darling to have her babies. Now anyone who is experiencing "hiccups" please be advised that they may not be hiccups at all but contractions. So if you are seeing this keep your eye on her closely. I also noticed that you said you kept your baby confined to a closet area. This is okay if the area is open for her to come and go. Make sure that she has water, food, and litter, and that the area isn't devistatingly hot. Other then that, keep feeding her healthy for as long as she will eat, and read that link

If your cat has a little bit of milk come out does that mean she is close?
Please for the love of God say yes.
