Found a stray pregnant cat!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A few weeks ago I found a stray cat, and now she is showing clear signs of pregnancy. Ive never had a pregnant cat before and was wondering if there were any tips anyone could give me?

Also, because she was a stray what are the chances of her losing the kittens?

One thing I noticed is that she has these little black spots around her nipples, is this normal?

How long are cats typically pregnant for? And how will I know when she is ready to have them?

Thanks for any help in advance!

Welcome to TCS...first, thank you for rescuing this stray cat. I'm assuming you are keeping her strictly indoors now.

The first thing I would recommend that you do is read this thread which will give you advice on how to set up your stray for her pregnancy:

The spots around her nipples may be a change in pigment...but you may want to consult a vet if it concerns you.

Just make sure you keep her strictly indoors from now until she has weaned her kittens and can be safely spayed.

Suggestion: Go to the store and get some good quality kittens food, that will help ensure that she will be getting plenty of nutrition for herself and the kittens. Second, make her a birthing box(large cardboard box with a towel and newspaper in the bottom and a whole in the side.

Other people will come along and tell you some better advice.
