Are you sure she's not just fat?

That's the question I've been hearing a lot lately. You see, our cat is pregnant. She is due right around July 3, give or take a day or 2. Cats gestation is 63 days and we know when she went into heat and was out. We haven't allowed one of our cats to have kittens in 14 years....a long time. But we decided we'd let Princess Daisy (named after the Mario Kart character and Rico's cat) to have one litter before we got her fixed.

She was very thin when she got pregnant and is fat but not hugely fat right now. I'm guessing a litter of 3 kittens and will be surprised if there are more. The last time we allowed a litter, Butterscotch had 6 kittens for her first and only litter...she was a huge ball of cat before she delivered. Daisy is no where near as big.

But, I find it funny that Marielle still doesn't really believe that Daisy will be having kittens. We thought it would be a good learning experience for the kids and so far it has been. They've asked how the kittens will come out and I've explained it. Thank goodness they haven't asked how they got in there!


  1. awwwwwwwww some gals just skinny preggo! lol

    i wish we could have a cat!!!

  2. Wow 14 years that must be 40 something in people years and she just got pg! Wish I was a cat, would have saved so much money. Good luck with the kittens. Let us know when and how many.

  3. Oh, no, it was a different cat that had the kittens 14 years ago. This cat is a year old. Sorry for the confusion.
