i have a page here about cat pregnancy which you may find of help


I am not sure what you are specifically needing to know. usually a cat will have her kittens without any help from us and she should be allowed to have her own space and be left alone. it does rather sound like she is getting very close ton having her kittens. cats usually only become noticeably pregnant until near the end of their term.

keep an eye on her from a distance and don't be surprised if the labour is quite long, there can even be a period of hours between kittens. the only time you need to try and help her is if you notice a kitten stuck or if she has been pushing for a long time with no results. in which case you will need to get her to a vets.

best wishes Kate
