Need your input on this situation...

So i think Baby is Prego again (shes the one we took in off the streets and ended up being prego when we took her in)

SAD part is, It would be by her own son whose 10 month old himself.

I'm upset because he goes to the vet this thursday to get all his shots then in 2 weeks to get fixed.. and we were doing this to make sure this didnt happen and well he beat us to it. I could kick myself in the butt for not getting him fixed sooner.

Shes huge which also means he had to of got to her almost 3 months ago. I mean she looks ready to pop.. and she got HUGE this last week.

What bad things can come of her having a litter from her own son??

I've heard the story's of stillborn kittens and such. But how much of this is true. i just what to know the worst of this so i can expect anything.

She can't be three months pregnant. Gestation is only 9 weeks. Inbreeding is very undesirable. The kittens would be twice as likely to have physical problems that might or might not show up immediately. To prevent this from happening, you have to isolate a female from all males until she's spayed, which should be immediately after weaning.

You're probably right, she is probably pregnant. Her son could have been able to do this as of five or six months and if he is ten months and has been around her then I would be surprised if she wasn't pregnant. Still born kittens are very sad and possible, birth defects are worse though. Prepare yourself that you might need to make some tough decisions about having kittens put down if there are birth defects. I know birth defects are very common in colonies with a lot of inbreeding.

I hope things work out for the best and she is not pregnant!

Thanks for you input...i know im 100% at fault for this for slacking on getting Tigger or her fixed sooner. Tiggers has an appointment at 1:30 on thursday so i know this wont happen again.

I just want to prepare myself ... Do u know how long it takes for most problems to occur if its not a noticable defect.


Oh and i was feeling her stomach last night and you can tell she is pregnant.. But i didnt feel much movement as i did her last litter. So im sure some will be stillborn.. Im thinking shes only going to have 4 tops this time too.. shes not as wide as last time.. more hanging low.

Jeanie, The full pregnancy is only 9 weeks? I honestly didn't know.. People have told me 3 months that why i always just thought. I've only had one litter before so i wasn't 100% on everything with a feline pregnancy. Thanks for the info

I sincerely hope the kittens are all right and find good homes. Now would be a good time to neuter the male.

oh, that is so sad! It is wonderful that you are neutering Tigger, but it would still be good if you spay Baby. I hope that they will be born fine, and that the people who take them will understand that the kittens could have a defect. Good Luck with the kittens,

Although it depends how pregnant she is, I agree. This poor cat shouldn't have to go through this. I would get her to the vets to see if they can estimate how close she is to giving birth.
