Signs your cat is pregnant

When your cat is pregnant, she may be more energetic than usual. Your cat may be scratching, licking, biting, or purring more often. She may be more prone to eating and drinking more. She may also stop eating and drinking if she has an empty tummy. She may also start urinating in the litterbox or on your carpets.

If you think your cat is pregnant, be sure to keep your cat's food and water supply to a minimum so that she doesn't get too fat. Don't let her climb on counters, couches, or furniture.

How to tell if your cat is pregnant

To tell if your cat is pregnant, you can do several things. Take a look at your cat's abdomen. You can see if the lining is thickened and look for small bulges on either side of the uterus. A pink ring may be visible on the abdomen. The pregnancy test can also be used. Some veterinarians say that when a female cat is pregnant, her nipples may become sore and even crack and bleed.

Your veterinarian can help you to tell if your cat is pregnant. If she is, she can take your cat's blood and urine to test for pregnancy. These tests can tell your cat's pregnancy and when she gave birth.

How to care for a pregnant cat

Some cats do fine when they are pregnant and some cats need special care. To help your cat have a healthy pregnancy, try to keep her from getting too fat. This may help her to pass more easily through the birth canal. It can also help to keep your cat out of your way.

Your cat will also need to drink more water and eat less to stay properly hydrated.

If your cat is expecting twins, she will need a bit more space than a single cat would. Be sure that you keep your cat's room away from the door to let her have a good place to hide.

How to tell if your cat is in labor

It is normal for a pregnant cat to labor. Your cat will need some kind of help to pass the baby. If your cat isn't already showing, then she will need to be anesthetized to help her to labor. If your cat is anesthetized, you can tell by watching for her to twitch or groan and then to push the baby out. Your cat may have other signs of labor and will also need help to pass the baby.

When your cat is in labor, she may be more energetic than usual. She may also have an empty tummy, drink less water, or not eat.

How to care for a cat with kittens

If you have a cat with kittens, you'll need to help the kittens to get enough colostrum (baby's first milk) from the mother. Don't put your cat or kittens into the same litter box.

If you want to be sure that your kittens get their colostrum, put them in an incubator for about 24 hours to give them the best chance to get colostrum. You should also watch carefully for your cat to give birth to the kittens. Once she has given birth, your kitten may be very hungry and need special food.

If you're not sure if your kitten needs to eat milk, ask your veterinarian.
