    Hi all
    I've been reading posts on this site for ages, absolutely amazing advice. I'm fostering a cat which I plan to keep, along with my other female cat as they seem to get along, (she is spayed)
    The Foster cat is fully pregnant for over two weeks I have felt and seen movement she's a little cat with a rather large stomach, I've read that after seeing movement kittens should be born within two weeks. She shows no sign apart from licking herself and me, she is a very happy cat,
    Could anyone let me know what I should watch out for please I would be very grateful x

    She also has lost a bit of hair towards her back but I've been told it's stress, it is growing back now

    You can sometimes feel them from 5-6 weeks.

    Have you got her set up with a birthing box she can get used to nesting in? We move our girls into the bedroom about a week before birth (of course easier with dates ;)) so they can get comfortable and relaxed.

    Yes she has a birthing place and she choose under my make up desk so it's all padded out or them. It's her spot she loves And easy to get to if I'm needed

    Remember cats don't read. At least not 'what should happen when you have your kittens'. :D But she does sound like she's going in that direction. Some cats noticeably 'drop' near to delivery - the shape changes, sometimes they look a bit thinner as kittens start moving into the birth canal. Mine haven't read that bit of the book. :) Nor had they read that deliveries are commoner at night.

    So I was totally wrong in when she would have them she has been tricking me
    She has had 5 beauty's this evening black with grey and white stripes with little white faces
    I can still feel one in her stomach (at least one)
    When do I worry, I have read a few different time. She is content happy and sleeping all kittens are sucking away and sleeping, it's been about 2 hours from the last kitten, was a quick easy birth she ever made a sounds bless her
    Thank you in advance for your help this site is amazing

    Sometimes it can seem one if still there but it isn’t, just organs or poop.
    So long as she’s settled I’d not worry, I’ve had kittens born 8-24 hours after the rest.

    Interested to know if she used the allotted space under your make up table?

    My girl is due in about 2 weeks. I’ve made her a lovely nest in the bottom of the airing cupboard but she’s not been near it
