Cat Pregnancy – buy a soft cat bed and place it in a quiet place.

cute-kittens1Do you think that your cat is pregnant? Autumn Davidson who is a Veterinary Internist at the University of California says that cats have very few problems giving birth. You can take some basic steps to insure that your cat has a smooth pregnancy and delivery. A check up is a good idea to insure that your cat can carry her litter for the nine week term.  A follow up exam and ultra sound at four weeks will allow your vet to determine the number of kittens. A small litter may mean large kittens which can possibly cause delivery complications. Before the big event, prepare the cat bed and place it in a quiet, out of the way space.  Cats need a private, warm, secure place to have their kittens. After the kittens are born, watch to make sure that the mother and kittens bond.
