Pregnant Cat Symptoms
Pregnant cat symptoms is a topic that generates a surprising number of questions to the veterinarian. In response to the many questions I receive about pregnant cat symptoms, newborn kitten care,and weaning kittens, I have written this section of the website to cover this aspect of cat health and behavior.
Most kitties, except those in catteries, tend to care for themselves during pregnancy, have their kittens, provide kitten care by themselves, and barely ever look to humans for any help whatsoever. In fact, if we intervene, a cat's labor can even be halted temporarily by our presence.
If your cat is giving birth and you can't resist the urge to peek, stay as far away as you can and be very, very quiet. Keep the lights off and keep the area as dark as possible.
At the bottom of the page are questions from readers with my answers. There are also other pages listed about pregnancy in cats. We also have a kitten section that will help you greatly with your questions about care of kittens.
One quick word about the nutrition of pregnant cats. These moms have extra requirements while they are pregnant and while they are nursing. In addition to feeding a high quality food and feeding as much of it as the mommy kitty wants, I strongly recommend a multi-vitamin as well.
You will find questions and answers from readers at the bottom of the page. This will give you lots of additional information about the subject of pregnant cat symptoms and cats giving birth.
If you have a cat that goes outdoors and therefore gets fleas, gets pregnant, gets in fights, and all the other things that can come with being outside, please read my page on OUTDOOR ENCLOSURES.
