Help! Could she be pregnant? ** update **

I am currently fostering a female kitten, age estimated to be 6-9 months, though very petite, after she and her brother were abandoned at the local stables about 4 weeks ago.

Over the past couple of weeks her demeanour has changed, and she prefers to sleep in the bathroom on the bed underneath the heater, which is on all the time, and she has become a little grumpy.

Tonight I noticed her nipples looked pointy and more obvious than my other female cats





Could she be pregnant?

She could be. Can't say for sure, but I have seen ferals and abandoned cats pregnant at 5 months...


If she is a foster, I would call who ever you foster for and see about the possibility of a spay. Since you asking makes me assume she cannot be already.

Sorry for the confusion. I don't foster through an agency. It was to differentiate from my permanent residents. She and her brother were abandoned in my village, so I'm looking after them until I can rehome them.

AHH ok. LOL That is very nice of you to take them in! At her age it is possible. Though I have had fosters that have odd shaped nipples that were spayed. I had one that had hairless and prominent nipples and she had NEVER been pregnant. Only way to tell is time or a vet visit. Lots of luck with them.

She is old enough to be pregnant but a vet could say for sure.

Her nipples look like she could be pregnant, but usually they turn pink around the third week.....so maybe???

Just a quick update. We've been to the vet, and she is, in fact, very pregnant! Due in 10-15 days.

After all of this, I think she is going to become a permanent resident, she is such a lovely kitty.

Poor little kitty. It's wonderful that she can count on you.

Kittens stillborn/ died shortly after birth

Hi all,

I got in from the stables tonight to find that Ebony had given birth to 3 kittens. Sadly all were dead :'( They were wet but cold, so I don't know how long ago the birth occurred.

How long should I leave them in the nest before I remove them?

Also, is there anyway of knowing if that is all of them, or if Ebony still has any more to go?
