Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
about to have new kittens - help!
A few months ago I rescued the sweetest cat ever from a parking lot. I was with my boyfriend at a car meet and a couple guys walked past us on their way to work at a nearby restaurant and said she had been following them for quite a while. She was super skinny and just the most affectionate thing. I didn't want her to get hit by some stupid kid not paying attention driving around like crazy (since we were at a car meet) but I also felt bad for her for how skinny she was. I took her home and gave her food and water and let her stay outside. (My 3 indoor cats didn't quite like the idea of another one). She's stayed around this whole time but lately she's gotten quite big. For all the time we've had her we weren't ever really sure if she was actually pregnant or just been eating a lot since she was so hungry before. Now we're positive she's pregnant. She's getting pretty big so we think she's really close to having the kittens. We brought her inside, gave her a little hidey hole away from the other cats, with food water and a litter box.
Since we've had her, we never really took her to the vet or anything... :-/
What I'm mostly wondering is... What do I do???
I know that seems vague, but after she has them, do I need to take them all, and/or her, to the vet? How much can I sell them for? How long do I wait to sell them??
Thanks for any help, its greatly appreciated.
I've had so many cats but never any that had kittens themselves. |^|
