    Hi all, I’m new here
    My Siamese girl is due on Wednesday. Last night she was extremely restless all night and her uterus hardened a couple of times. However, all she seemed to want, apart from being close to me, was food. I fed her several times during the night and she ate ravenously.
    I took her temperature first thing this morning; 36.4 degreesC. Took it again a few hours later 37.00C. So it seems to me labour is probably imminent, the only fly in the ointment is she’s not off her food. Would love to hear your thoughts guys.

    Not all cats stop eating. Eating a lot several days before isn’t unusual either.

    I don’t take temperatures, there’s no need. You know she’s due Wednesday, so can go anytime, just stay with her until they’re born.

    So her Due date is 11th September if she mated on the 8th, but it should be on the mating certificate you should have been given. As above, not all cats stop eating, and I have never taken temperatures. I suspect cats cab have braxton hicks contractions.
