JA: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: It's like 2 months pregnant approx that's about it

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.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

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.?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No nesting behavior she just wants to be pet.
She is still eating normally.
The blood was alittle moist but most of it was dried. There is a stain on our bed sheets from where she was laying. We just found out now since we came home. We've been gone for about 7 hours.
She is licking herself. It is blood red
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

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.
