    Hey! ok Im gonna start a diary for selecta, just to keep everyone updated and for me to ask questions if i get stuck, ;).

    I rescued selecta a few days ago as her owners couldnt cope, Anyway shes here with me now, and is very much loved, I do not know when she is due to have her kittens but im guessing it will be very soon.

    She has a hugh bump and her kittens are big, im guessing 4/5 in her tum...

    Anyway today she has been very restless, very alert, constantly grooming herself everywhere & i do mean everywhere :rolleyes:
    she cries now and again and follows me everywhere, (cant go for a pee without her)!

    obviously this weather isnt having a great impact on her..I have the ceiling fans constantly on & she finds the hallway cooler but then after a while shes up again..bless her. :wink5:

    So i hope you enjoy selecta`s diary of her progress...xxx:smilewinkgrin:

    Place a frozen coke bottle of water where she lays some cats will lay up agianst it to cool them selfs its good for bunnys to. I bet she will find the heat with her pregnancy.

    My Cat scratched the carpet behind the sofa for the first time last friday , was very vocal as well and hey presto she has her kittens that night at 8.30 pm. So I would suggest you watch her closely and you will know when she losses her plug lol. Twink lost her plug and had the kittens an hour later.

    well iv just come home and selecta has not moved from her box..not even to say hello..she normally follows me into the kitchen when iv been shopping to see if there is something for her..

    I fed the other cat and she still didnt come..also this morning iv noticed that her nipples are up, but no milk yet..

    Iv just got Another big box for her to go in...so hopefully she will like that one too..

    Good luck with her, Twinkle didn't go into her box untill the day she gave birth and I had three all round the house for at least two weeks before lol so it does sound promising.

    Yay, I hope for some action soon!! Sometimes there milk doesnt come in till just before, or whilst giving birth!. but the not eating and going in her box sounds quite promising. How is her toilet habbits? ;)

    Well I think Nala is tricking me....Maybe just a bad case of water retention :rolleyes:

    We had new sofas delivered today, she went underneath them an hour ago and has yet to come out. (I can see her though so I know she is ok)

    She keeps twitching her fur (like they do when flies land on them) alot, then more groo9ming. but other than that, nothing!:mad:

    suppose all I can say it will happen one day!;)
