Kitten Watch

Tomorrow will be a week since Dr. Amanda said “About a week”.

And what a week! I got my wish: Oprah is vastly improved and no babies yet. She’s still a little snuffly, but normal “the cat has a cold” snuffly. She can smell now — I don’t have to “prime the pump” to get her to eat. She had terrible diarrhea for a couple of days (probably the combination of being sick and eating mostly “slushie” food) but that’s clearing up now. She pees frequently; I wonder if there’s a baby sitting on her bladder, like with humans! 😉

She’s not very active although she did play a little catch with me yesterday with one of the plastic springs. She’s grooming a lot (she was kind of a mess) and I helped yesterday by cutting out some matts.

Usually she rests under the desk or in the box. Last night I walked in to this:

IMG_4485I have no idea what was going on. Was she a) eating lying down? b) too tired after eating? c) just enjoying being able to smell the kibble??

Twice now, during the night, she’s opened the closet door in that room. I do.not.like!! I don’t think there’s any room in there to have babies, but cats are weird! I’ll have to figure out a way to keep the door shut.

Now we just wait. Sigh.

  1. Maybe she just wants to get labour and eat at the same time 😀 Good Luck for the mommy. Happy Valentine’s Day. Extra Pawkisses for the occasion 🙂 ❤
