    Hiya everyone, I'm Katie and I joined to seek advice about my cat, Crystal. She is a seal-tortie point colourpoint persian :D took her to stud in April and here we are, 62 days later and I think she may be in the early stages of labour. (yay!) So excited and can't wait to have some lovely kittens running round :D

    One was born with a cleft palete, Crystal sat on the second one and the third had fluid in his lungs. So unfortunate, a triple dose of bad luck. A year and a half later, I think she's ready for another litter. She is quite small so I'm only expecting 3 kittens this time around, but we'll have to wait and see!

    oh goodness that was bad luck!

    Unfortunatly things like cleft palates, and mum squishing a kitten are risks with every litter :(, did you find out why one had fluid in the lungs?

    Will keep my fingers crossed for you.

    No, didn't find out. The vet had it put to sleep because there was no way it was going to survive. Crystal has stopped bleeding now. Hope this doesn't mean she's decided not to have the babies tonight!! I was getting so excited, but I suppose the longer they stay in there, the better! x

    If she was bleeding but nothing has happened in the last 6 hours i think i would be seeking veterinary advice? If the discharge turns green or she seems distressed she needs to go to the vets straight away.

    Hope all goes well and you soon have some gorgeous pictures to post! :thumbup:

    I wouldnt worry about a vets yet, the discharge can last a few days as some cats lose their plug earlier than others.

    Just keep a close eye on it, if it turns into fresh bleeding, changes colour (green/yellow), has any sort of odour or you feel worried in any way then off to the vets.

    For now, i think things are progressing very well, she is day 63? and so could yet be a couple of days before the actual birth x

    Thank you all for the welcomes!
    Day 62 now. She had her last litter at 65 days. Not sure if it will always follow the same pattern? She seems fine. It's more of a discharge with blood in it, rather than actual blood. It's not bright red, but it isn't quite pink either. What sort of problems would fresh blood indicate? x

    bright red fresh blood (not mucous with blood tinge), would indicate some form of internal problem. Could be placenta previa of the first kitten, placental detatchment or even uterine rupture!
