Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

Hello are you ther
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 3 months ago.

Do you know how far along in her pregnancy she is? Do you know when she was bred?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
She got pregnant about 4/5 weeks ago I think, they feel like kitten size inside her if that helps
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 3 months ago.

Many cats will have movement over where the young are located the closer to term they become. If she is otherwise having no issues, there should be no reason to terminate the pregnancy. I would let her continue on and address it if medical issues do arise. It sounds like she is otherwise healthy.

That being said, she is still a baby herself. She needs to be spayed after she has her kitten(s) and they need to be altered before reaching 4 months of age or they will be able to breed within the litter.
