We did the responsible thing and rehomed a cat from the rescue in July. Was assured it was vaccinated and desexed and given the certifactes to prove this. I let it in at midnight and it went and climbed in bed with my 11 year old. Kid came flying through at 3am shouting there was blood all over his bed and a kitten. Well now there are 3. Where do I stand with the recue? Can I insist they pay for her to be desexed and rehome the kittens?

She is playing out at the moment but I will look when she is back.

Toffee are her nipples swollen hmm

grin at hopeless plan to rehome.

Also reading thread with fear. Got ToffeeGirlCat in May and she has got fatter. Also spayed by vet at RSPCA. Doesn't like to be touched much. Always hungry. <worried>

Lovely lovely thread! flowers for you (Granny) cj. My lovely cat died just before the summer holidays, I'd had Jim for 12 years, pre DH and DCs <wail>. We're getting a rescue kitten for Christmas and I'm beyond excited! I also had a rescue cat give birth on my bed when I was a teenager. Was wonderful not sure if my mum agreed grin

cjdamoo I think this sums it up. grin

So the kittens are now 8 days old. All boys. They have been named Scamp, Gizmo, Ludo and Nookie. Rescue center has been fab so far with support answering my stupid questions calming me down when mumma cat escaped :D I have even digitised the rescues logo and embroidered it onto teatowels to help them with fundraising. Its like sinking sand I think I am been sucked in :D

Oh how cute!

Same thing happened to us. Cat from rescue centre, definitely spayed, they said. Documents etc. Started getting fatter but obsessed with food. Told rescue centre, no, could not be pregnant. Came home from work one day, she was popping out 3 kittens (4- one didn't make it). We kept them for a lovely, sleep deprived, crazy three months and they were all re-homed together, where they still are. And mum is still with us smile

Good luck !!!

We have been watching you tube videos of kittens at each stage. Cannot wait until they start becoming playful. My house is going to be chaos, 1 cat that is very demanding of cuddles and rubs, 4 kittens 1 broody teenager 3 primary aged boys and a toddler with a devilish streak. Not to mention they are off school until Febuary. Dh is delighted as he has holidays booked to coincide with school hols from Mid january when they will be at there worst best

MinesAPintOfTea Sat 14-Dec-13 07:31:56

Oh they're gorgeous! I'm all kitten-broody now

cjdamoo Sat 14-Dec-13 07:15:23 Day three of kittens they are now in a suitcase

Lovely video!
You have to keep at least one, OP!
Many years ago I was heartbroken after the unexpected death of our first cat. My friend persuaded me to get two kittens - they were fabulous fun together: DH and I spent hours watching them play. They cuddled up cutely together on the sofa and were very patient some years later when our long awaited only child became a toddler!
They were with us for many years, much loved and still very much missed.

Paneer are her nipples swollen?

paneer Fri 13-Dec-13 22:41:03

cozie I have pm-ed you.

cozietoesie Fri 13-Dec-13 22:29:53

Well did the vet confirm she was spayed?

paneer Fri 13-Dec-13 22:25:28

She was as still bald where she was spayed when she came home.

paneer Fri 13-Dec-13 22:23:41

she was assumed to be 2 when I got her in May. My mum and sister on separate recent visits commented on how big she was.

I have noticed too. She looks longer and belly hangs more.

She can't be can she?? What do I look out for?

cozietoesie Fri 13-Dec-13 22:18:41

PS Is she looking bigger overall - or only in one place?

cozietoesie Fri 13-Dec-13 22:17:24

Oh My, paneer. How old is she?


IThoughtThat Fri 13-Dec-13 22:08:07

Great video! I can see how you could have missed the pregnancy with such a fluffy cat.

I am glad the rescue is sorting everything out.

paneer Fri 13-Dec-13 22:01:23

I am so shocked about this.

My cheesycat (rescue) is looking a LOT bigger than when she first came to live with us. I keep telling myself there is no way she could be. This post is scaring me.
