my cat cally is nursing a stray newborn at the moment and has a white kinda thick discharge from the vagina and she is pacing and looking in closets and behind the couch and then when she goes to look the kitten cries and she comes back to feed it is she in labor?? or ok>?

I'm confused...do you know for sure she is pregnant? But she is nursing a stray baby?

How far along in her pregnancy is she?

I had to do some fast research....because I myself have never had a pregnant cat!

Anyway, on several sites I read that cats do have amucus plug, like humans, and they lose it about 1-2 weeks before the birth.

They are usually pregnant around 65 days.

If she seems to be in any discomfort at all, I would take her (and the kitten she is nursing) to the vet, because there are a lot of complications that can occur during pregnancy/birth.

Sure. :) I am hoping she is just passing the normal mucus plug and will be fine. :)

Is she still pacing, etc?

Also, I read that if their is any kind of foul odor to the mucus you see than she needs to go to the vet.

Hmmmm....I don't know.... :?

I guess, if she were my cat, I would take her to the vet to be checked....it seems like if she is in labor, she is pretty early, but it does sound a bit like she is inlabor, what with the panting and pacing.

It sounds like it could be the plug. Usually that means that the first kitten will arrive within 24 hours BUT it can take 3-4 days before she gives birth. If you think she's having babies, please take her to the vet. Kittens born after only 58 days will need some extra care, possibly veterinarian care in order to survive.

Not Yet

The vet told me she was just releasing the mucous he said it is nothing to worry about unless its green,brown,or red and he said my kittens should come within the next 5 days callys panting has decreased and the owner of the little stray came and got him last night and cally has searched everywhere and seems like she cares so much about one that isnt even her own i know shell make a terrific mother.I'll post a photo once i find out how=)
