Fall time kittens?

Some exciting news to post....We FINALLY trapped the father cat to my 4 cats (Simba,Blue,Juno & Summer) We have been trying for a very long time. Monday night I set the trap and he went inside and stepped on the trigger plate and BOOM! went the door. So we took him inside and put him in a small dog crate for the night and into the bathroom.

Then Tuesday morning we took him to the mobile clinic van to be neutered. . We picked him up yesterday late afternoon in the crate. He has been staying in that crate in the bathroom all day today. Sometime tomorrow (thurs)we are going to let him go. *our bathroom now smells of pee* he needs to go back outside.

Anyways.....The momma cat still needs to be caught. So we are going to try her again next week.

She had a litter of 3 kittens over the summer time. (we think they were born in the middle of june). She brought them to us mid july. Then sometime in August we took the kittens inside. We are fostering these kitties. Hopefully we can find them a home soon.

But just recently I noticed that she has a small belly on her . So my question is...when do *fall kittens* come out & about? and can she still be spayed while pregnant? I know she will loose anything that's inside that belly of hers. but its a good thing .

As of now...we have 10 cats in my house and Its just way to much for me to handle. 7 is fine. but the 3 kittens add the extra care. So this is why I am hoping that we catch the mom cat next week.

That's great that you finally got him!

To answer your question, yes, she can be spayed while pregnant. They will terminate the pregnancy. I do believe mobile clinics/spay and neuter clinics charge a bit more for that, but it's probably for the best for her well being and for you.

what about my other question though...
when do autumn kittens appear?

if we cant trap the momma cat...then this new litter will be born somewhere...then she'll bring them to us when shes ready.

There's isn't an exact date that marks when fall kittens start dropping.

Cats can come into heat and be bred any time year round.

Around 66 days after she's bred she'll have her kittens.

2 TNR Cats

So last week we caught the father cat..smokey. Got him fixed and let him stay over for a few days then let him back outside. Then a few days later he was back to eat! So I was very happy to see him at the front porch again.

This week we caught the mother cat..ms.cali. We got her spayed and she got to stay inside for a few days. Today we let her go back outside. I hope she comes back for food.

We aimed the crate looking at the woods...so she was a little confused at first...but then ran out of the crate and headed towards the woods and kept running.

I am glad that we got both parents fixed. No more kittens for us.


I had mom take a video of both of the cats being led outside. I'll have to figure out how to get the videos together and online so I can show you guys.

Aw congratulations ThreeKatzGirl! I was just reading your other thread where you said you'd caught the daddy cat.

This is great news for the kitties, and for you!

I hope you can figure out how to post the video - I'd love to see it!

So happy they came back. I was also happy when my 2 females stuck around after TNR. You did a great thing for both.

That is great news! I've TNR 10 and 7 have come back to eat every morning and evening. I'm in the process of building them a cat house for the winter, hope they know to stay there. Right now, we have 3 walls up and I've set beddings for them and I do see them sleeping but once the last walls goes up, I hope they don't feel trapped and stay there.
