nope still panting , still nesting and load's of sleeping when will it be over , how long can they be in the panting stage b4 they go any further
post #14 of 28
Every cats different, it can be hours. My girl went from no contractions but acting funny and liquid tinged with red coming out, to full labor contractions in 3 hours.

I've heard others on here that take longer than that. She had all 4 of her kittens in about 50-60 minutes.

post #16 of 28
Thanks and we are very proud of her . But we had such hardships the first time I don't know what would have happened if things went wrong again...

I understand being scared and concerned. I hope everything goes well.

her first litter she had a deformed 1 who was still born wasn't nice to watch then her labour stoped vet's told me to bring her in then gave her something to help bring on contraction's witch didn't work so they gave an emergancy c section 3 kitten's were alive and formed propley 2 of witch was very week and died b4 i got there to pick them up , brought the last 1 home and had to hand feed lactol as he was week and lilly's milk hadn't come in fully yet he died at 4 day's old , then she got out 2 week's later and went missing come back was 6 week's pregnant so am WORRIED

If you took out the c-section in your description that is almost exactly what happened to us. She had 5 kittens. The first 2 were small and weak. I took them to the vet and they died. They gave her oxytocin and she delivered the last 3 (the last one was deformed and stillborn). One girl I nursed hourly through the night just to find her not alive at a morning feeding. They were to weak and small to nurse. I couldn't imagine falling in love for 4 days to lose one.

The good thing is second litters do tend to be a bit better.... Heres hoping for everythign to work out!

broke my heart i couldn't talk about it for week's without crying was like lossing one of my own , in way's it's nice to hear u have been through something simillar mean's she has a good chance it will be ok this time round , but am ever so sorry to hear it had happend if u know what i mean
post #20 of 28
Yes I know what you mean. I know the devastation. The weekend after the loss I was supposed to pick up my wedding dress. It was 2 hours there and 2 hours back. I decided I should keep to my plans because I hurt so bad and needed something good to happen. I was planning on going by myself and out of the blue my dad offered to go with me. It meant a lot even though we barely talked. I just couldn't bring myself to say anything unless I would cry. It took a long time to recover.

I found wtih the birth of this litter some of those thoughts had come back. I just remember seeing the baby girl yawn (the one that didn't make it through the night) and that has stuck frozen in my memory. This litter is helping me bring closure though.

i think the thing that worry's me the most is how close she fell pregnant was only 2 week's after the first 1 vet's didn't seem to worried though?

It is a concern.. I do hope it goes well. The good thing I can say is that many breeders actually breed queens pretty quickly if they lose a litter. This is because most of the exhaustion of pregnancy is actually the nursing. Nursing takes a long time to recoupe from. The pregnancy itself isn't as taxing. Since your girl didn't have to nurse, her milk dried up quickly and the only major recovery was from the c-section. My girl went into a continuous heat for a few weeks but we had to wait to breed her so her due date wouldn't fall during our honeymoon. At the same time if you let them skip to many heats its dangerous for infection (why breeders don't wait to long to rebreed).

If you had a successfull litter that nursed for the full term and got pregnant 2 weeks after weaning or before weaning then I'd say you have a major problem on your hands and could be looking at weak kittens, and milk supply issues. I honestly don't think this will be the case for you. But I would take extra extra measures to keep her away from the door.

arggg how much longer can this go on for , all she has been doing today is nesting and sleeping in the nest can cat's be ready to give birth but may not be able to contract? some of her teat's the milk seem's to be less lump's they ain't as big ?
post #28 of 28
I feel for ya . I thought I was going to explode if she did not have her babies soon. It was weird because the runt came out first. The second was huge. The third was about the same size. I hope she is done soon. How is lily doing through everything?
