Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
So I have a very small cat named Kalika who is pregnant and I think she is about to have the kittens any day now.

I was reading all sorts of stuff on the net...even watched a few youtube vids.

My questions are:

Kalika's temp today 100.8 I read 100 or under means she will give birth within 24hrs...should I be on constant watch now?

Also I got string...Petraluem Jelly and gloves in case of problems...should I have anything else on hand? I am worried because she is a tiny cat so she might have complications. Anyone who has owned a tiny momma cat that has had kittens please chime in here...this is my biggest worry right now.

Last one she follows me around constantly lately...so I think she will be wanting me around when she does go into labor...maybe for support? I am scared and excited. This is my first time I ever had a cat who got pg. Sure we had them growing up as a girl from time to time but I never really paid attention to what my mother did and besides I was young so I never got to see it first hand that time or I was not around when it happened. lol

Any tips are appreciated! Thanks guys :)

Maybe I should use thread instead of string? in case of umbillical cord problems?

I would suggest you relax and allow nature to take it's course. Your nervousness could affect the cat and cause her to stress out unnecessarily.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
Dental floss is what I use for puppies (no joke), it is strong enough to hold but not fine enough to slice the cord when tying. I suggest you keep an eye on the mother and let her go about what she wants to do whilst delivering, only intervene if a kitten is stuck or if the mother looks as if she is really struggling.. If a kitty gets stuck call the vet at once

It's really been an experience since she's been pregnant seeing how my other cat Batman who is her brother takes care of her. By washing her constantly and sometimes keeping the dog away from her lol

She'll be fine, she'll find a quiet place to have the kitties and she will come get you to show you at the appropriate time. Give her some space.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
You won't need to tie off anything. I did have to cut a few umbilical cords when my cat had kittens...the mom usually takes care of everything. What I have done with both my mom, cats is after they have the kittens put her and the kittens in a animal carrier overnight so she is forced to bond with them and not flake out. Then in the morning put her in a cozy hamper with some towels. If you can put her in a separate room with a litterbox and some water and food. Also start feeding her kitten food so she gets all the important nutrients she needs to feed them. Remember that kittens need a warmer temp so put them in a room with a small heater so the room is like 78 degrees until they are older. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Thank you for the advice...okay so the thread would not work too either. hmmm I will run to rite aid in a bit then :) Yes I am watching...took her temp earlier so I figure with it being 100.8 anytime now! Yes I only plan on intervening if I see complications or if she does not deliver after awhile. You know how much a c section costs for a cat? 500-800 dollars! Omg I don't got that money...

Got a box all set up upstairs where the dog is not allowed to go...but she does not go in it. She likes my bed. Dear lord I just know she will deliver there. I got blankets laid out over my comforter just in case :) Thanks for the post Hapless...

The only reason I am worried is because she is very tiny. I mean you would think she was still growing. That's the main reason for this thread to be prepared for any complications.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
if there is more than one she will be okay my small dog only had one baby and had to have a se section because it was too big the vet said if she had 2 in there it would have been fine
she also mated with a larger dog
I wouldnt cut the umbilical cords it could kill them let the mamma do it I have had to do mouth to mouth on a few babies before if the arent breathing turn them over gently pat the back remove all the stuff out of the airway then put your mouth over the entire mouth and breath gently into there mouth
make sure the mamma cat has plenty of water near her no food just water

why won't you need to tie it off? I'm confused with that. I mean can't the kittens get infections or something if not tied? Sorry if I sound like an idiot my first time here lol

The box I posted about is in a separate room which is very warm like the whole house and also I got separate litter box for my other cat for when the kittens arrive. I will just put that downstairs somewhere for him with food and water :)

So the momma should be eating kitten food? I did not know that. Thank you for all the advice and for letting me ask more questions. added the kitten food to the rite aid list :)

Kittens hearts

Most of the complications I have seen with kittens involve the mom not accepting one, rather than the delivery itself.
Personally, I would have a kitten bottle and kitten formula on hand just to lower the stress and panic of a having a day old kitten that's not being fed if that occurs.

The mom usually gets licking right away and chews off the cord...gross but she knows what do do. That is one thing I didn't worry about as long as the maternal instinct was in full force.

Just wanted to add that my cat was a litter reject and he grew up fine other than being a bit of a doofus when it comes to socialising with other kitties.

I don't know how many are in there. I am only intervening if I have to. I just want to be prepared for anything. So I will definitley let her do her thing regarding the birth process. I will pick up the food in the room then while she is delievering good advice all around thank you so much :)

yes...that's always a worry with the momma cats as that is how I got Kalika and Batman. They are both from the same mother but she would not nurse them...and to boot they were from different litters. So I wonder if Kalika will be like her mother....

Please have her spayed. Spend ten minutes of your day and walk through the shelter. When you leave remember their faces. Only 10% will find a home.

The rest will be euthanized.
