Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Have you witnessed any nesting behavior?Is she still eating and drinking well?Is the blood dried or moist?Is this frank blood (bright red) or darker maroon or black?When did this first begin?Are you seeing any signs of labor such as pushing, pacing, continual licking of the vulva, etc.?
This may be the first sign that her labor is starting. Some cats will continue to eat and drink normally despite being in labor, though the vast majority will refuse food and water 12-24 hours before the onset of labor. If the bleeding worsens overnight or she has not delivered kittens/shown signs of active labor (nesting, pushing, etc), I would highly recommend that you have her examined. This may signal a complication with her pregnancy, a urinary tract infection, vaginitis, etc.
