Is My Cat Pregnant? (6 replies)

Hi I got my precious kitty on March 2 and noticed she had a round belly. At first I thought it was just worms, and was going to worm her when I took her to the vet to get spayed, but then family problems came up and I was unable to take her. Her stomach has continued to get big and at one point I saw movement.

The reason I thought she might be pregnant is because she has never gone into heat and her nipples have pinked up. By now I assume she is pretty far along and can't be fixed if she is pregnant and she's never been outside with us so there is no way she's gotten pregnant here, she doesn't even get close to the front door in our house (she has too much fun going up and down the stairs to care about going out).

I would just like to know if she is pregnant or if I am paranoid. She will be going to the vet soon for shots and everything else so I will find out soon enough, but I still just like to prove my husband wrong when he says I am crazy.

She is not a very old cat as well (probably under a year), and I am prepared to take her to the vet if she has any complications, and am able to take care of kittens if she seems to not want to. We have agreed we would keep all the kittens she has and get them all fixed since we don't want to add any more cats to the world or take places of any poor shelter cats.

Sure sounds (and looks) like you have a mama cat on your hands. She must have become pregnant just before you brought her into your home. Of course, this is just my hunch; I'm not a vet. Please let us know how it turns out -- and if kittens arrive, we want to see photos!

I agree with the idea of Dave Baker.

Just wondering if a vet visit has confirmed or denied the possibility of little kitties? 😀

Due to car troubles I was unable to take her to the vet anytime in the last two weeks, but last night she started meowing loudly and acting weird. I checked her backside and she had clear discharge. I thought for a moment maybe she could be in heat, and not pregnant at all, but she didn't show signs really of being in heat. I saw some sort of movement in her belly this morning. It was only in one spot and was like a little lump moving up and down in her stomach. I'm not sure if it's a kitten or just her intestine moving with her breathing  (though it moves a bit out of sync to her breathing). She still has a bit of discharge, but not as much as last night, and has been licking herself a lot more than usual. She will take naps and then wake up and start meowing loudly and going to my bedroom then back with me. She also seemed to want me to go to bed last night as soon as possible and would run to the bedroom whenever I seemed to walk that way. She has been eating, playing, and acting mostly normal other than that, except she spent all night waking me up when she tried to get in the window and kept getting stuck in the blinds. I don't know if it was because she was anxious about the storm or she wanted out or something else? But all night she paced from the floor, my bed, and to the window.

Really sounds like she's pregnant to me, too JayBird. Although, I myself have never had a pregnant cat, we've fostered many and our neighbors,who seem to be magnets for stray cats, have a couple who look exactly like your photos--I know this because they frequently visit our back deck. I've been known to put food out when the temperatures dip down low and/or we get a ton of snow. My best advice would be to take her to the vet as soon as you are able if you think she's in pain or struggling, otherwise, nature will take its course. Keep us posted and YES, pictures, please!!

Well now she suddenly is acting as if she's in heat! I don't understand it! She really shows signs of pregnancy, but now she keeps wiggling her butt in the air and meowing loudly while rubbing against things. She will calm down for a while to nap, then get right back to it. I've never seen a pregnant cat act that way so I don't know what is going on with her. We are going to take her to the vet soon, hopefully.
