Delivering kittens

Postby whoopsie » Thu Jun 17, 2010 10:26 am

My beautiful little cat is due to have kittens next week, and I'm worried cos I've never helped deliver any. I know I'm not supposed to interfere unless I have to, but what if I need to? What are the things I should be looking out for? Has anyone ever helped a cat deliver kittens?

Eek.

Hi Whoopsie,

I don't know alot about birthing kittens but there is a great forum, http://www.reptileforums.co.uk, altho it says reptiles, it has forums for the support of every kind of pet you could have. The other pets and exotics forum, has lots of people who can give great advice on kittens.

I will. As gross as it sounds, I've been watching videos of cats giving birth to gain some knowledge. She's 59 days today so it really is any day now. I'm busy all weekend so I'm worried I won't be here. Hopefully I will tho. I'm really scared in case something goes wrong.

Birth is usually easier in other mammals than it is in humans (because of stuff to do with unique brains and pelvises). I'm sure she'll sail through.

You know you're a mum when the thought of food shopping alone becomes exciting.

When you and your significant other are having an argument, just take all of your clothes off during the spat and stand there. Something is bound to happen!! =]
