Signs Of A Pregnant Cat?

    (Forewarning, Please save the berating. I've bent over backwards many times providing not only reasons to, but means of having our cat spayed/neutered. This is gotta be the worlds biggest I told ya so)

    For everyone that remembers me (and Lucy), hey! Sorry I haven't been around, I just decided to seek out other forums after some problems last year.

    Alrighty, Lucy got out two nights ago and came back last night, meowing loudly on our porch. Question being, What are signs of a pregnant cat? We've got quite a few strays around here so chances are better then I'd prefer that she is pregnant.

    Also, what are some initial signs of diseases she could have gotten while out?

    Since shes gotten back shes been sleeping, eating, and following me around a lot which is pretty different from her usual routine of wanting to be alone. Though I'm not one to complain about the extra attention, I hope you can understnad my consern.

    Cats are often overly affectionate while in heat....maybe she is still in heat? I sure hope she's not pregnant. You'd have to go to the vet to find out for sure otherwise you will know shortly when she suddenly has a huge appetite and begins to rapidly gain weight.

    easy...get her spayed now and abort the litter. There is also a blood test that can be done to determine if she's contact either feline aids or leuk (I think that is the 2...could look but my stuff is at home). But I don't know how long after contact it takes to know for sure.
    Since you are unsure of either this would be the perfect time to get her spayed and abort any possibly pregnancy. IF she did come in contact with either of these diseases she'll give birth to very ill kittens.
    A former coworker of mine didn't want to "purchase" a kitten from the shelter so he got a "free" kitten and after hundreds of dollars in vet bills they finally found out their "free" kitten had FIP and had to be PTS. The mother of this cat most likely has it and the cat's person lets it reproduce w/out a care.
    Now's the time....easy fix

    It's good to get her spayed ASAP. Cats are not strong enough to carry healthy kittens until they are 2 years old. I'm sure Inky/Lucy will be happier being spayed. Whatever you decide, it's best to bring her to the vet or a low cost neutering/spaying clinic. Be sure to test her for feline AIDs and Leuk as suggested. Good luck.
