  1. My cat is giving birth and in don't have a vet doctor and she only like a she doesn't grow so much so she kinda a size of a 5 month kitten

  2. Need help mother cat had her 4 babies Sunday morning, the kittens are stuck together by the placenta I believe that what it is that's what it looks like, how do I get them apart, mother is not feeding them as well

  3. This is such a big help! We didn't even know our cat was pregnant because the adoption center said she was too young, but she gave birth yesterday so ??

  4. I put my car in cardboard box in the conor of my room but she always come back and lay next tome while she is giving birth.

  5. My cat gave birth 4days ago she was meowing so hard she wanted me to follow her and stay the second I leave she get up while in pain and comes looking for me

  6. I think my cat is pregnant. She is really grumpy today. I haven't seen her since I woke up at 9 am and I found her at 2 pm. She was surrounded with the boys and I cussed at them and grabbed my kitty.

  7. I expedite the birth of the kittens by PROVIDING ONLY:
    2). AIRHORN

    When the first miniature hairball puking, ammonia stinking turd manufacturing machine starts to emerge, follow these 3 simple steps:
    A). Block entrance to box.
    2). Place airhorn over top edge of box with horn pointing directly at momma cat.
    D). Depress horn button for 3 FULL SECONDS!

    At this point, in most cases, the momma almost instantaneously craps out the entire litter.
    Do not worry if the fetuses slam into the sides of the box or if it seems the momma turd machine tramples them. They are surprisingly resilient baby future hairball pukers!

    The protective instinct of the momma comes back in an hour or two and then she resumes taking care of her kittens and eating her placenta.
    This method makes it easy and fun for all in my opinion!

  8. Im only 9 and me and my mom helped our cat Sonia I don't know how to spell her name though our cat sorry Sonia

  9. I can't give my cat space because if I leave her she follows me. With her last letter the dog killed them. She is in my top dresser drawer able to get in and out easily. No other animals can get to them. I have parakeets but that's not really an issue. She doesn't mess with them. OMG SHE HAD THEM I WILL BE POSTING A VIDEO SOMETIME ABOUT THIS
