    hi all, I just need a little bit of advice really. I'm baby sitting Suki, a Siamese cat who is very heavily pregnant and I was just wondering what the very early signs of labour were? I've been reading and researching all about cat births and I know the signs for when she's actually in labour.

    This is her second litter and she's huge! lol She's expressing milk as of last night but she has no vaginal discharge and isn't displaying any other unusual behaviours. The kittens are still moving around inside Suki and she's eating plenty and drinking ok. Her belly has been high and round but seems to be slowly dropping and her nipples are getting larger and starting to be visible when she's standing up.

    We have no idea when she was mated as she managed to sneak out when she was in season and came back pregnant.

    Thanks xx

    She's starting to nest in the birthing box so it should be within the next 24 hours or so.

    No new signs of labour just yet. I've been at work all day imagining she's been all alone (my bro in law has been checking on her regularly) and going into labour etc. Got back and she's alseep on the back of the couch! lol
