We have the most gorgeous little foster cat pregnant with 4/5 kittens. When she came on Friday I thought she was the most pregnant looking thing I'd ever seen in my life (and I work with pregnant women) and that she must be about to give birth but no sign yet.
She's very relaxed in our spare room and is still eating loads and using the litter tray, we got excited last night because she was licking herself but it appears that was just a bath. She is MASSIVE poor thing.

Let's have a pool. When do you think she'll give birth?

Does anyone want a picture so you can see how big she is?

Maudlinmaud Tue 16-May-17 09:35:51

Great God that is one big belly! Poor girl.

SentientCushion Tue 16-May-17 09:37:56

We've given her our entire spare room, we've got three boxes with towels and blankets, two futon cushions and lots of towels. She's not looked at any of them and seems determined to get into our blanket chest lol x

SentientCushion Tue 16-May-17 09:38:48

I'm not sure if we get to pick names no one has said, I think I'm going to just name than before anyone else can.

Puffinsareblackandwhite Tue 16-May-17 21:52:00

Poor thing, she looks ready to pop! Any updates yet? I'm betting early hours of Thursday morning!

SentientCushion Tue 16-May-17 22:28:25

No updates so far, she's still eating and pooping and purring away. Shes seriously big now though.

cozietoesie Wed 17-May-17 00:04:00

Good Lord. You mean she's become even bigger? shock

SentientCushion Wed 17-May-17 12:18:45

Yup even bigger!! shock

cozietoesie Wed 17-May-17 12:21:57

Poor girl.

cozietoesie Wed 17-May-17 12:24:46

Are you absolutely certain it's only 4 or 5 kits?

Maudlinmaud Wed 17-May-17 12:28:46

Our farm cat growing up had nine kittens bless her, sadly they didn't all survive. She does look rather rotund.

SentientCushion Wed 17-May-17 12:31:04

Well to be honest I'm just going off what I was told by the cats protection coordinator who gave her to us. She had a scan last week to check her kittens were ok as she was so malnourished and so young, apparently the vet said then it was 4 or 5 kittens she could see but that's second had information.

cozietoesie Wed 17-May-17 12:32:55

4 or 5 'she could see'. Harrumph.

At that size, I wouldn't be surprised by 7 or 8.

SentientCushion Wed 17-May-17 12:34:06

confused

Oh goodness me that's going to be quite the brood!!!

cozietoesie Wed 17-May-17 12:35:21

Well. You'll find out soon enough. smile
