    My pregnant cats nipples seem almost saggy...almost squishy like. (sorry hard to explain :blushing:) Is this her milk coming in?
    If so how long have I roughly got?:D

    She has also got the ump with me I think :rolleyes:.....She is usually all for me, but no interest in me what so ever :(, but she wont leave my partner alone (not jealous lol:wink5:). Not sure why, i feed her, clean up after her and play with her :mad:!! lol

    Anyway back on track :rolleyes: any ideas.
    Thank you x

    The milk comes in just before the birth, can be up to a few days before...not long now :)

    Sorry another question. When I am at home I allow all the cats together, should I start splitting them up? Or wait till I think she is in labour? Thanks

    ok have split them :)
    Her milk is definatly there...it feels like theres loads at the back nipples too. Her stomach also looks like its 'dropped'. She doesn't look like she is sticking out at the sides no more, but her belly looks like its dragging on the floor :p.
    Other than that she is acting completely normal, eating like there's no tomorrow, grooming ALOT. Toilet habbits are normal, seeping all the time lol :rolleyes:

    Any one want to guess how long i have left?
    Place your bets lol!!:001_tt2:

    Unfortunately my 'neutured' male got to her.
    She is an indoor cat so has never had any contact with any other cats other than the 2 she lives with. I decided the male was the first to get the chop since i have 2 females, but vet told me they could'nt do it yet as he hadnt developed properly. so I kept them all seperate, he went had the neutering and little niave me said yay we safe, all run together!!:eek::eek::eek:

    Now i have one fat cat and one tom laughing at me because he got there before i did:rolleyes:

    oh right lol...I rescued another pregnant cat yesterday, and unsure when shes due but she is ready i think...her kittens are well big, shes very very cuddley and is wherever i am, she has been snooping around, but i have a box that hopefully she will use, she cries now and again, but only for a second...same again shes eating fine, toilet fine..My cat lucky who had kittens last year never went off her food...so they all have different pregnancies...


    Im gonna put a diary on in abit so can let everyone know her progress, day by day...they are a good bunch on here, and helped me loads with lucky..and i like it that everyone gets excited..I do when someones cat is in labour...even when a dog is in labour...its very interesting just how the labours do differ from one another...:wink5:

    I know they are everywhere. wish I had the space and money to help like you do :(

    I believe they do groom alot when pregnant, it also pulls the hair out from around the nipples (I think anyway). If there pregnancy is anything like ours then i sleep alot....so they must too :p.

    In the last hour she has kept walking in and out of her box, then laying down against something cool like the cold radiator or a wall, then repeats the whole thing :rolleyes: . Think I may stay up with her tonight, I am a worrier :001_tt2:
