Hi Tracey and Happy new year,

I am sorry you are worried about Priscilla.

Do you have any idea when she was bred?

Do her nipples look quite pink?

After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.

Kind regards,

Terri

Dear Tracey,

A green discharge can indicate Priscilla will deliver within days.

However, if it is odorous and or she has a fever, she could have a serious infection called pyometra:

Cats have two uterine horns so mommy can have kittens in each.The nursing by the first baby should bring on further contractions so you want to encourage that. Also allow her to eat the afterbirth as that brings on contractions as well

It can actually take 30 hours or more for a cat to complete a four kitten(average) delivery. When she is done she will want to eat as they feel starved. She CAN have more up to 30 hours later.

A cats appetite is the best barometer of her health because if they are sick or in pain, they will not eat.However, it is normal to stop eating 24 hours prior to labor.

The babies happy and nursing indicates she is producing good milk.

I would not worry unless she appears upset,has pale gums, seems in pain, has an odorous discharge or another several hours goes by with obvious labor and no production of babies. Otherwise she should be fine.

Sometimes cats can develop uterine infection, the symptoms are:

pain, fever, odorous discharge, in appetite and pale gums.

Please let me know how Priscilla is doing and when she gives birth.
