    My cat is pregnant..not sure when due.

    She just went mental meowing and hissing, attacking herself then curled into a ball and started shivering.

    IS THIS NORMAL?

    How do you mean 'attacking herself' - it doesn't sound right to me - see if you can ring a vet and talk to them over the phone (doesn't cost) and ask their opinion.

    she was biting her belly and sides. she has settled now and is grooming herself excessively. Vet has said she prob in a bit of pain but dont know how to deal with it, maybe first stage to keep an eye on her. she seems happy enough in herself

    That's good glad she has settled - I should imagine it won't be long now. SHe may need loads of reassurance once it all start happening in ernest.

    Thank you, she has been laying next to me for a while now. She is mainly sleeping then having a groom round her nipples, then sleeping again.

    Well she laid next to me all night asleep. Nothing as yet, and this morning she seems fine and has eaten and drunk loads!!! You can really see her spine sticking out now where her belly hanging so low.

    The Vet believes the kittens were getting into position and it may have felt strange for her, maybe even a little bit painful. Suppose since she is new to this then she isn't going to understand whats going on. Bless her.x
     
  15. Sounds like the litter is imminent now! good luck!

    Aw bless she is really cute! What does daddy look like?
    At least you were trying to do the right thing by having him neutered!!

    I guess that all new mums act differently, poor girl :(

    At least she seems brighter today! Do you have a idea date of when they are due? :)

    I have no idea, must be soon. I noticed her nipples getting pinker and bigger in the middle of May. She has her milk in and low in her belly, but no other signs.. I don't want to take her temp because I have never done it before so don't want to hurt her.

    A pic I just took with the web cam, he not that much of a poser lol, will try and get a better one of him

    Scratching the carpet is prob an indication she is trying to nest, I would watch her closley. Keep us updated as you can.
