Now that the drama with Buttercup seems to be over (she was spayed today and all went well) I need to turn my attention to Xena. Our little warrior princess came to us the same day as Buttercup, 17 days ago. We were told she may be pregnant when she came to us.
She popped a little belly late last week. It's not as marked now but she seems curvier than before. Nipples are still small but may be slightly pink. I was so preoccupied with Buttercup that I didn't pay them much attention to begin with.
If they were able to maybe palpate kittens when they pulled her from the pound, that would have put her at probably 3 to 4 weeks when she got to me. I've had her for a bit over two weeks. Does she look like a 5 to 6 week pregnant cat to you?
When mine was pregnant her nipples were very large and pink, also her belly was hanging lower, could you get a pic of her standing like your last one and see if the belly's bigger that way?
We only suspected our cat was pregnant as she got fatter, was eating more, being sick quite a bit early on and her nipples. Couldn't feel a thing in her belly though. Then one night heard a noise under dad's bed and found her with one kitten.
I know your feelings on the matter but the rescue won't do it if there's a chance that she's pregnant. If it were up to me I would have done it within a week of her arriving here but it's not my call to make. Now that she's no longer jumping on Buttercup (presumably because Buttercup's smell has changed) I'm happy to care for her and any kittens she does have.
