    I was wondering if anyone can help me i have a female cat she is approx 3 years old and i think she might be pregnant.
    She has a large abdomen which at first i thought it was were she had eaten her dinner. But i feel her tummy before she has eaten and its rather large.
    not going down though. All her nipples are noticeably out, you pick her up and they are there don't have to feel for them.

    Is there any other signs that she may have? That i need to watch out for?
    And can anyone second guess how many weeks she is? if she is pregnant that is? you can see her abdomen is large when she walks.
    Any advice from anyone would be great thanks, i would apprieciate it

    it certainly sounds as if she is pregnant - I'd say at least 5 weeks gone.

    Hello HelsyBelsy and welcome:)Your sure it's not worms:confused:From what you've said i wouldn't like to 2nd guess,but assuming she is pregnant it won't be long before you find out eh:)Feel around her teats,if they feel kinda spongy this is because they're filled with milk and it's come forth for babies to suck:)This being the case then she'll deliver quite soon:)

    Thanks she also has a heart murmur or so i have been told, does this mean if she is having babies she could die during labour? This is a worry of mine or can cats with heart murmurs go on to have healthy pregnancies and births.

    Chances are she'll be fine - there's not a lot you can do about it now in any case.

    You can work out how pregnant she is by when she was in call ??
