Re: 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 :)

 Quoting: Spirit666


Cats are usually very self sufficient, no matter how small. Don't know what you can do for her with your human hands and her tiny birth canal. Also, cats have a uterus for each kitten, so it's not like turning a calf or something (although you might be able to give her companionship). Also, the friendliest cat often wants to give birth in seclusion. They like boxes in closets or open dresser drawers with some soft towels. Often, you'll prepare a wonderful place for them and they'll go somewhere else.

Good luck to you, just go with your feelings about how much company she wants to tolerate.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
You don't have to do anything except give your kitty a large, comfy box with a blanket inside. She will do all of the rest. She may want you close by...some kittys are comforted by knowing that their human owner is near by.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
Maybe I should use thread instead of string? in case of umbillical cord problems?

hf
 Quoting: Spirit666


on cats because they are litter animals, you can just cut the cord if the placenta is still inside, it is already detached when the kitten is born. the milk will come in before the actual contractions start so the kittens can nurse immediately. So far I had now big problems with small cats, a little problem with first tiny tiny siamese and 5 kittens, her belly was on the floor and I had to clean her bottom for some time. She fatigued near the end and I pulled one kitten while she recovered her energy. That was all.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
We have a small dog who jumped into the birthing box and was helping out licking the babies and offering support for mama cat. It got to where she wanted the kittens for herself and we had to remove her putting moma cat and kittens in another room where we could shut the bedroom door.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Re: Questions about a very tiny pregnant cat
I used to foster strays, I had one that I called Fancy, she was only about 10 months old and pregnant.. She was very attached to me, and went into labor on my pillow beside my head while I was sleeping ... 3am I heard her scream and looked over and thought I had used her as my pillow and squashed her guts out (keep in mind 3 am) ... I jumped up, flipped on the light, screamed at my husband to help her cause I was wigging out and then I ran, ran to the other side of the house and cried.. Then I heard him yell "she's having her babies you nut case!"

Moral of the story, they won't always find a quiet place to have their babies in peace...

Good luck with the babies! It's spring, at 8 weeks (I've waited 12) put an ad in your paper.. They will go fast.. So fast that I have no idea why anyone takes them to the pound :( and get that little girl fixed

Well guys...I don't know...okay stayed up till 3am with her and no babies yet :( She only panted a few times after I posted how she was laying on my son. I woke at 8am to find her in the closet on the towel I laid down.

I went back to bed around 9 and of course couldn't sleep well she came and layed on my chest and started to do this weird thing...I think she was trying to push. I have seen her do it 3 times now. She won't stay still... walking around meowing. I did not observe her trying to push last night. I don't know at this point!!!

oh no he is fixed lol. She got out with Batman at our last place. We could not find them both until the next day. I was freaking out only because she was not fixed. I knew they would come back...I think that's when it happened. I did try to feel her belly I think I felt two...can't be sure though. I put the update in my last post. I don't know what to do...

Op, don't worry too much yet. Sometimes cats are a little like first time human moms. There can be false alarms and it will take her a little while to get started. It sounds like she'll have them soon, but soon as in her time. She's walking around for the same reason we walk when we're in labor. It helps strengthen the labor and get the babies in a better position. She'll probably give out a huge yell when she's going to deliver the first one. She knows what to do, it's just had for us to watch and feel helpless!

oh thank you for your post. I was thinking that just now...how long it took for me to have my son and yes I walked and walked also. Her time sounds right...it's just exhausting...I want to be right there in case... when I went to check on her where she was a few minutes ago I peeked in the closet and yep she was right in the corner she saw me and moved and started meowing. I said it's okay Kalika go back to the blanket...and put her there and left the door open just a little. I don't want to look again and disturb her again. I will wait a bit....leave her alone. And keep my ears open.

I had one cat that started acting like this, walking around and meowing. She wouldn't leave me alone. I finally went with her to her box and sat with her. It wasn't long before the little kitties came along. After the first kitten, she got busy and I left. It was the middle of the night an I needed some sleep.

Another time with a different cat, she seemed to be having trouble. A friend from out of town was visiting. She massaged the cat's belly. I can't remember a lot, I believe she had 2 kittens that were both still born.

I don't remember how we knew she was having trouble. I think she went to her box and was in there a long, long time with no results.

Good luck with the kittens. Try not to worry too much. I'm afraid she will pick up on that. Let us know when we have kittens!

Aww..be calm and aware. Normally I wouldn't say anything and just trust the right thing will be done at the right time with how you can sense things on your own.

All I can say is her littleness could mean she needs assistance of a vet. Usually it goes smooth on their own, but sometimes labor symptoms in a kitty are pretty quick by just a few hours..not prolonged. At least call a vet for some advice and settle your mind about what is going on with her.
Then again sometimes med assistants can be schmucks by too much or too little...up to you, sweetheart.
Please keep us posted,and hey, what is her name prithee tell?
Peace and NO BIG DEAL today :)
