    I rescued my girl on Feb 22 her name is (Shera) I kept her locked up for 4 days to make sure she wouldn't run away. I have 5 other cats 1 spayed female 1 fixed male and 3 unaltered males. Once I let her out I noticed the unaltered males running after her and staying by her side where ever she went for like 2 weeks I noticed on april 14th how big she had gotten that is when I knew she was pregnant. Its now may 5th and she is HUGE and no sign of labor I will post pics I am thankful for any advice.

    here she is in the pics i took on april 14th where i noticed she was pregnant
    she had a small pooch looked like an over fed cat at that time.

    WOW! She is BIG! I'd say soon. Maybe even within this next week or two. About when was she with your males? And please post kitten pictures when they're born! [​IMG]

    Not sure when she was with the males since I never say any breeding take place I got her on feb 22 and kept her locked up for 4 days so i finally let her out on the 26th about 2 weeks after that my males were everywhere she was so she could have gotten pregnant anytime within those 2 weeks after i let her out on feb the 26th

    Definitely soon. I'd say within the week, but I could be wrong.

    I made a mistake the first time our kitty had kittens and she ran off and hid them here and they died. For her second litter, I locked her up for a week or so and came home one day to 6 cute little balls of fluff...

    Your doing the right thing, even though it's tough. If you let her out you run the risk of something happening to her or her kittens when they get born. Keep a close eye on her, it should be anytime now. :) Be sure to post pics. when they are born, I love kittens. :)

    If she's nesting and meowing a lot then that might be a sign she's getting really close. Or she might be going into labor anytime now. Good luck.
