Hi all, last week I befriended a little black cat that's been sneaking around our yard for quite some time now, she was bone thin, ( minus a rounded stomach but I didn't think anything of it until day two) very very friendly and constantly meows and meows and meows, one of those talking cats. I at first thought she was nursing a litter of kittens, as her nipples are large and pink, but upon consulting my mom the next day we began to wonder if she was actually pregnant, after having eaten the day before her belly was even larger, I decided to feel around it a little bit and yep, sure enough I could hear and feel popping sounds and small lumps, me, knowing a lot less about pregnant cats last week than I do this week was afraid to hurt her so I stopped feeling and still doubted it was kittens, thinking " eh, probably gas, she hasn't eaten a good meal in forever!" That's when the Google search began and we started checking the box for most pregnancy signs. Anyway, day bu day her stomach is getting HUGE, around Wednesday I could feel kittens like no ones business! No denying it, she would sit on my lap and I could feel them moving against my leg, it was pretty cool. and then, on Friday night, she was sitting on me, grooming and tadaaa, the milk volcano exploded and she soaked my jeans, the deck anything she sits on. I had read that (a) a lot of cats don't produce milk beforehand and (b) if they do then birth is usually within 48 hours... but here I am, no kittens. Before my question you need to know her schedule, being a stray we keep her outdoors, she lives on the porch now, we can not bring her in as she HATES dogs, and we already have two cats and we just can't risk it, but rest assured, she was two warm rainproof beds on the deck, a couch to hide under, more food than she's ever had and warm laps that now spend more time outside because of her. So she has moved more and more to our house, spending most of her time here now, but everyday at around noon she goes to the woods a few doors down and sleeps until about 5 or 6 and then comes back, spends all evening, and all night and all morning with us, I think she goes off still out of habit and to get some nice quiet cool sleep. ( It's so hot here and she's a little black cat so you can imagine) I can tell she's sleeping because she comes back all sleepy eyed and adorable. Now, yesterday morning she was very round, and her appetite was still gone, ( it has been for the last couple days, another reason I thought there would be kittens by now) but that afternoon when she came back from her nap her sides look a LOT smaller and her hips look sunken a little bit, underneath though she's very round and very hard, but I can't feel movement in there, hard to feel though now that she's only really showing underneath, and she was SUPER hungry, is this normal? I'm 98% sure she didn't have kittens, her schedule is still the same, she still spent the night with us, she's chilling on the porch right now, her vulva and everything looks the same, she's not dirty at all, her nipples don't look touched, she's just lower, hips sunken in and hungry, this morning however she only ate half her food. What do you guys think is going on? Sorry for the long post, had a lot to tell there.
