    Can anyone help me. I have a girl of 2 who is pregnant. I took her on thinking she had been 'done' but sadly not. Don't worry she will be as soon as. She is getting big and showing all the signs and when she is lying on her side you can see (what I presume is) kitten movement. This is the but I don't understand... Mr Tom Cat from near us has suddenly started yowling and trying to get her. She isn't too interested and gives him a slap. Can this happen? Is he just sex mad? She is indoors now and will stay there for the duration.
    Any help would be good

    I don't know why he is interested, i thought that once a queen is pregnant then she went of heat. I know that if she is just pregnant then she can fall again but i think that there is a time line. I'm baffled.

    i am not sure why they do it but i have a local stray tom yowling at my window every day because i have un dressed cats that i have taken in. I have nicknamed him chancer i will be getting him speyed soon too (borrowing a trap of a cat rescue). I do know that tom cats try and force the female back into heat by killing kittens sometimes

    Thanks people! I have found out where he comes from today so lets hope he will be kept in and then go to the vets. I will let you know how Genie gets on with the kits and if I need any more help I will call you guys first. Cheers

    To be honest I don't know. She is getting pretty fat and wont leave me alone. As I said before I can see the kits moving about inside her. If it wasn't for that and the weight gain and the pinking up, I would think she was on heat. I really have no idea.

    She is very vocal now and the tom cat who is bothering her is just as bad. She keeps trying to carry Sammy about who is twice her size. She's not happy about being inside because Sammy is outside and she doesn't want to be by herself. Just sit and wait I guess.

    A sudden upsurge of maternal insitinct is the most reliable indication that the birth is imminent - like today. What she wants to do, is to carry the "kitten" off to her nest. Keep her in! If you don't, she will hav e the kittens soemwhere outside and then you really will be panicking, believe me!

    As for the tom cat, they do seem to get sexually interested shortly before the girl gives birth, I guess it's the smell.

    I'd put money on there being kittens this afternoon.

    Liz

    i agree with liz. if she is overly maternal it usually means kittens will arrive a day or 2 after it starts

    Any sign of the kittens yet, mine has just had her milk come in and she is very vocal and very agitated. I have read that they sound like they are going in heat when the kitties start to move into place.

    Keep us posted

    No kits yet. She's getting a bit grumpy and is still trying to drag Sammy about the bedroom. She is finding it hard to settle.

    She has made a nest and, shall we say, emptied her system. Gone to litter tray 8 times this morning half of which didn't come to anything. Little cat boobs are swollen and she can't stand up for long. I think we are imminent. Wish me kitties.
