Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. Thank you for having me here. I need some advice. I recently rescued a cat from the pound. She was surrendered by her owner so did not have a lot of time as the pound was a high kill pound. The original plan was to foster her, have her desexed and vaccinated (pound already microchipped her) and find a home for her like I have done before..... however....as it turns out she has won the hearts of my son, my ex rescue cat Bella and myself... ssooooooo I decided she was meant to be.. so shes now a permanent family member :O).... anywho after I took her to the vet on day 2 to get her checked over (she was very very underweight and suffering cat flu) the vet told me she looks to be pregnant! I asked the vet how sure she couldn't tell me all she said was she may be or she may not be.. shes either constipated or approximately 3 to 4 weeks pregnant.. there was no option to have the babies aborted / desexed as the vet wouldn't put her under anaesthetic until she had made a full recovery from the cat flu and has finished her anti biotics.. she said to wait it out and see.. sooo I have to wait for another 5 weeks to see if she has kittens... either that or an ultra sound which the vet said is prolly a waste of money.. best to just wait It out.. I have no patience.. so please tell me what you think.... Her symptoms is she sleeps ALOT!! She eats ALOT!! She grooms herself ALOT!! She is VERY VERY affectionate..to the point where she sleeps in my arms each night.. she hasn't been in heat for over a month..i asked at the pound who had her prior to me..and her nipples are double the size of my desexed Bella.. and are pink..
