My cat's water broke. How long will it be until the second stage?


Dear Sarah,

It happens so quickly that most owners don't even know their cat's "water broke". I suspect by the time you are reading this, she has had her kittens. Cats generally take care of everything themselves and give birth as if it were a stroll in the park!

Enjoy the new kittens,

Dr. Neely
