I've been fostering an adorable tortie stray for a few weeks with every intention of taking her to our local shelter(an outstanding no-kill facility)when she'd had been socialized a bit more. She's very small & sturdy and I wondered if she might be pregnant or had just been a very effective mooch with my other neighbors.
When rubbing her belly a couple weeks ago, I had my worst fears confirmed when I realized how "solid" her sides have become and how distended her nipples are. From a past litter with one of my older cats, I thought I remembered that those symptoms became evident about halfway through the pregnancy, so I figured delivery for the third week of August.
But she's already "nesting" (she's claimed the Roman tub in the master bath as hers...to the point of knocking towels off the shelves and dragging them into the tub) This made me suspect I may have miscalculated. This morning during a grooming session, I felt two kittens move!!!! I'm so excited, but a bit panicy to realize she may be due much earlier than I thought. One of the kittens, showed a lot of activity and good strong movements. I'm thrilled...just getting nervous.
Does that sound like six weeks or further along than that?
