    Hi, I have a pregnant cat. This is my first time. I have no idea when she got out as she’s a stay at home cat. Her baby’s are now moving inside her and she’s sleeping a lot?

    People not expecting their cat to be pregnant don't usually notice kittens moving until 2-3 weeks left.

    Read about kittening: https://icatcare.org/advice/my-cat-having-kittens

    Make sure you know your vet's out of hours arrangements.

    And make absolutely sure she doesn't get out again until she is spayed. She may well get pregnant again, she might have her kittens outside, she might have an accident and leave you with tiny kittens to try to hand-feed.

    Thank you. I don’t let her out, she’s always asleep on me and follows me everywhere. I also have the vets number saved. She won’t be allowed out now until I can get her spayed.

    Either you have an entire male cat in the house or she has been out. Cat's don't do parthenogenesis. If you have an entire male he needs castrating ASAP.

    She must be a young kitten to have not been spayed yet?

    It’s quite concerning this is a miracle pregnancy as it’ll make it difficult to ensure she doesn’t get pregnant again.

    You’ll need to watch her carefully as you must be there for the birth to ensure all goes well, that kittens are born successfully, all placentas accounted for.

    The kittens need to stay with her for at least 12 weeks and should be vaccinated, microchipped and neutered before adoption.
    Mum can be spayed at the same time as the kittens.
