    As some of you know, Crystal is now 64 days pregnant. I haven't been able to feel the kittens move throughout the whole pregnancy and I know I should be able to! I'm a bit worried now, starting to think it might be a phantom pregnancy or that the kittens have died inside her. Has anyone else had a pregnant cat whose kittens haven't moved? So worried, I'll be gutted if anything happens.

    Lily is pregnant and I haven't felt the babies move, she's on day 54. I haven't worried too much as she's getting bigger and we had another girl where we couldn't feel the babies move and she had five live babies.

    Try not to worry too much - some cats carry quite "neat" and you hardly see/feel anything. A few of my girls kittens have become very quiet in the few days leading up to the birth, there's not much space in there to wriggle around. It could also be that she's maybe only having a small litter.

    Is she ok in herself?

    Hi I was just about to start a thread asking when you should feel kittens moving and saw this? Its natural to worry but sounds like other people have experienced this especially is she carrying a small litter. My girl is on day 51 and I keep trying to look or feel for movements but nothing. Also when do cats become aware they are pregnant do u know? Funny question but my girl always liked her belly stroked but the past 2 days she won't let me touch it. Was just wondering if she's now twigged she's pregnant! Hope all goes well you won't be long now x

    i'm far from expert but when my Ruby had a litter i couldn't feel any movement either
    also, if they had died inside her, she wouldn't carry them to term.... would she?

    hiya Katie :thumbup: it's such a worrying time i know
    just noticed a tortoise section woohoo!!
    i was told a long time ago that because Ruby's litter came on day 63, every future litter of hers would always come on day 63 too she had 4 kittens and the same person said she would always have 4 too, i'm not sure if this is a fact or a myth?
    i know how worried you are katie but just think you'll have cutie kitties this time tomorrow :001_cool:
