Hi all..

still no kitties =(

I have no clue how far along she is.. but im guessing shes close. I can make out the size of the kittys now when they bulge out and today i felt one of them nibbling at my finger. My hubby thought i was imagining this but i really did! lol

She is very restless, doesnt move at all only when she needs to get up and go eat or potty.

She was 3 lbs before she got pregnant, and is now 8 lbs.

My question.....

Her belly is tightening up right now every few minutes. Are those contractions? Is it a sign of labor beginning?

I am soo anxious....

Oh goodness! it sounds like she is very close!
Fingers crossed so everything turns out perfectly - post pictures too!
What a sweet thing to have the little baby nibbling on your finger - they are coming your way!
ps make sure you have her spayed after this episode so she doesn't come home with any more surprises ..sweet it is true but you have to look at the other side of the story as well
This will be a wonderful thing to experience :D

oh no did i say i was having her neutered?? lol

well i have no clue where that came from lol..

anyways.. Angel had her kitties today!!! 6 of them.. Looks like she is a proud mommy :D I am soo happy!!

I will post pics later on tonite :D

I have a question.. I wanted to put her and the kitties in a box. May i do that now? Will angel attack me? She is normally a very lovable cat. But this is her first litter and dont know what to do or how she will react. I feel they will be more comfortable in the box with a cozy blanket.

Any advice?

Wow! Congratulations-how exciting!!!!!!!! :D I don't have much experience with new mothers, but I think it might be best to leave them where they are, at least for a few days, but I'm not sure...someone else will know :D

I can't wait to see them!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

This is the experience I had with moving kittens, my only experience but very recent.

I just brought my cat back inside after being kept outside for nearly 5 years. I brought her in because she had kittens. She didn't attack me or anything when I tried to move the kittens (the kittens were about a day or two old) but immediately tried to take them back to where she was when I found her. When she started to leave I gently held her down and petted her and eventually she stayed in the box, and infact has hardly left that box excpet to use the bathroom eat and get some attention from me. If she is where you want to put the box you shouldn't have too much trouble I would think.

Me and my mom have delivered cats 5 times and dogs about 10 times, and it seems to be the same with most them, normally when in labor they go searching for places to nest and have there litter normally they start ripping up the carpet where they want to have them once they lay down there they refuse to leave the location till about a week to 2 weeks after and they are tired of feeding them and they start losing there motherly nature. So when they start bedding I recommend you confine them in a location you want them.

Congrats!!!! I want to see pictures!!!! I don't know of anything cuter than a bunch of fury little kitten balls!

About moving them, where are they now? She might be more agreeable to you transporting them into a box but in the same location as they are now, rather than putting them in a cozy box and moving them across the house. I've heard that mommy kitties can be pretty set on keeping the kittens where they want them, but it never hurts to try. If you think they'll be safer and more comfortable I'd try it. If she lets you around them now, I would think that if you act in a calm and relaxed manner, paying very close attention to mommy kitty's attitude, then it will be okay. But I'm no expert! Just my helpful thoughts...
Keep us posted on their progress!

I moved the kittens today. I waited 1 day and i managed. she was pretty good about me moving them.

They are a day old now but im suspecting something is wrong with one of them.. It doesnt meow at all. It opens its mouth like if wanting to but nothing comes out. She looks to be the strongest one out of them all too..
Should i be concerned about this? is this normal?

We rescued Zoë when she was about 4 weeks old. She was tiny and covered in fleas. She did the same "silent meow" thing. It was only until about 5 or 6 months old that we ever heard something come out. You should have seen us! We were so excited. We had started to think that she'd never make a peep. Based on my experience, I would say it may be nothing...but a professional opinion is always nice.

I have no camera at this moment :cry: But they are all adorable!! 2 yellow tabbys and 4 black and brown striped tabbys.. I will post pics as soon as possible!! =)

I have a kitty that looks like isnt going to make it =( Im going to go to the vet with it today if there is no progress with her. I dont know she might just be sleepy right now.

Shes very weak, always sleeping and her mouth is always open.. She looks sick.. :(

I have been feeding her some baby formula for now.(She isnt eating at all) until i can get a babysitter to watch the kids so i can take her to the vet.
