Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for taking care of this girl. The best thing you can do for her at this time at home is to make sure she has good shelter, a dark and secluded area for having kittens, and then having readily accessible food and water. Could she have kittens in a few hours to a few days to a week? This is typically the time frame when a cat that is known to be pregnant looks very pregnant. If you wanted a kitten count to know how many to expect, you could get an X-ray with your vet.
They may lick their genitals more. But, they could also just be more fastidious with their cleanliness. There in is the unknown. If she is pregnant, then licking more could mean things are going to be interesting in the next 24 hours.
