Question
hiya i am sammy jade hall and i have a cat that is a year and a half now she was due her kittens on the 1st of may but she hasnt had them yet and my partner just let her sniff a wee tiny bit of catnip i told  him not to so what will i do i really need your hep and advise

Answer
Sammy Jade,

How many days along is she?  Cat gestation is 63 -- 68 days with 63 days being a normal minimum and 68 days being a normal maximum.  We begin counting the day after we have witnessed a breeding. If the female goes beyond 68 days, it is off to the vet, for sure!!!!!!!!

To be certain, you can check with your vet to see if everything is OK. Between X-rays and ultrasound, the vet can get a pretty good picture if everything is OK or whether  there is a problem.

Please let me know what your vet finds.

Best regards... Norm.

Expertise

I can answer most non-veterinary questions about cats. My particular expertise is pedigree cats, breeding and showing. However, I am versed in feline behavior, cat breeds and their characteristics, general feline husbandry, and the like.

Experience

I judged for the Canadian Cat Association from 1975 until 1982. I am currently an approved allbreed judge for the Cat Fanciers'' Association (the world''s largets cat registry), and have been judging for them since 1991. I have been breeding pedigreed cats since 1971 and have been exhibiting pedigreed cats in shows since 1970. I obtained my first pedigreed cat in 1970 and have never looked back. In 1971, I obtained my first Abyssinian which has become my primary breed. In addition, I have bred Manx and Persians. Currently, besides the Abyssinians, I am also breeding Maine Coons.


Organizations
Cat Fanciers'' Association, inc. (CFA) and the Manx, Maine Coon, and Abyssinian breed councils. I am currently Abyssinian breed council secretary.

Education/Credentials
I received a B.S. from Drexel University in 1968, a M.Math from University of Waterloo, in 1970, a Ph.D. from University of Waterloo in 1975, and a MBA from McMaster University in 1980. I received my approved allbreed judging status in the Cat Fanciers'' Association in 1999.

Awards and Honors
We have produced a number of Cat Fanciers'' Association (CFA) National winning Abyssinian and Maine Coons. We have produced a number of Abyssinian and Maine Coon Distinguished Merit females (an award for a top producing cat), including the first Distinguished Merit Abyssinian in the red (sorrel) color. I am the CFA Abyssinian breed council secretary and belong and/or hold office in a number of cat clubs. I am also a member of the CFA Judges Association.
