Hello. My female kitten is about 15-16 months old. She gave birth to one little kitten on July 15th in the wee hours of night…. in our bed. ugh.
Anyways, i have noticed she isn’t quite as cuddly to FI. She always liked to lay on him. but never wanted to be overly pet or loved. and she didnt fancy me a ton. Well, she is also super vocal now. always meowing. or making little noises… if the other cat bumps into her, or i touch her, she mumbles little noises… no matter where i touch her… allllll night she sits and whines…
shes become quite dreadful really… I cant stand it! I dont know if i should be concerned she is trying to tell me something? or if she has just changed. but boy is she miserable to be around :/
We have the male kitty that knocked her up. he is fixed now. and hasn’t changed a ton. my FI thinks so. but they are also adjusting to a new living area because we recently moved to stay in the basement of my FI’s grandparents since they are traveling all winter from Sept-next May and need someone to watch the house, were taking the time to save money.
I just don’t know what to do with her anymore she makes me miserable to be around her….

@gpsp2B: The first thing that comes to mind is that you might want to take her to the vet (this mama cat right?) she might have gotten hurt during the birthing process and that’s why she cries when you try to touch her. I’d get her checked out. How’s kitten doing?

Kitten is doing fabulous!! Shes a terrorist just like her parents were. She’s playful, starting to eat the kitten food as I’ve bene softening it in water for her but she still tries to eat the hard stuff. shes using the literbox… still nursing some.
I would think she would try ot bite us or somethign if she was hurting? like today she’s actually pretty quiet. And she will come lay on me and ill pet her and shes fine… so I really dont think shes hurt though I’m debating a trip anyways just to make sure.
the kitten only eats on the two nipples by her back legs, the other ones have even dried up a bit and become smaller.. she has this total milk pouch though. could her breasts be engorged liked a persons or something? she doesnt do anything ot the kitten when she wants to eat.. she doesnt make any noises or anything.. she just lays down and lets Luna eat… but she has this huge FUPA of milk lol

I would second possibly taking her in just to make sure there’s nothing internally going on? But I’ve never owned cats only dogs. And OMG that family cuddle picture is just the most adorable thing ever!

When was the last time this cat saw a vet? She needs to go if she hasn’t.
She could be going into heat already, it’s definitely possible. You can have her spayed while you are at the vet too. It’s much healthier for her, she won’t go into heat (spotting and noisy) and you won’t have any other surprise kittens. At least, I assume the kitten was a surprise since she had it on your bed and you don’t seem pleased about that.

She may just be calling out to her kitten?! most cats will become more vocal when they have kittens because they are protecting them from straying too far or just making sure they are still close enough around.

@kimm99: It’s been a while since she was at the vet. since she had her shots. I’ve had no reason to bring her. I know she could be in heat again anytime but this is different… she isnt putting her butt up in the air. ive seen her in heat. this has been going on for like 3 weeks +
Also, we dont have the expense to spay her right now. I knew she was pregnant but we weren’t expecting the kittens until the end of July early August… I felt her nipples one day and realized how big they were.. but her belly wasn’t rounding so we didnt think she was getting close, we had an appt to bring her in to get xray to find out how many kittens she was having.. she had a nesting box ready for her and everything.
I wasn’t to happy to wake up at 330 am to a kitten birth on my bed no… lol but only because i had a box for her, and i was in shock because i was expecting it later.. and because it was the one night we didnt have the mattress protector on because i had forgot to put it in the dryer and we were ready for bed. its a brand new bed….
the male kitty is fixed. so she wont get knocked up. and he hasnt been in her business trying ot make her go into heat either!
@RockStar33: SUPER FUNNY YOU SAY THAT! I dont want the kitten out in the basement because its A MESS of CRAP she could get so lost.. so she only runs around the bedroom… or when i can follow her out to the basement sometimes… well she went booking out the door so i said to Bella “go get your baby an bring her back here, I dont want her out there” AND TWICE, not once but TWICE bella went and picked her up and brought her back in the room. it was HILARIOUS. course now she wont do it so i have too. brat! but boy was that a hoot.

I just have to say… you need to spay your cat. You do know the average cat litter is 7 kittens, right? It’s pretty irresponsible to not spay them as it contributes to the horrific overpopulation of cats. They end up in shelters and are eventually put down. You can’t BELIEVE how easy it is for felines to get knocked up. Literally a matter of seconds (if she’s an outdoor cat, though, which it sounds like she’s not).
Secondly, after cats have kittens they generally become EXTREMELY vocal. We found 2 cats in our garage over the years who had kittens (they were random stray cats, not ours. We have spayed every animal before adopting them from the shelter) and they were very loud, meowing really loud all the time! It’s an instinctual way for them to “round up” their babies, I’ve heard. Sounds like you’ve taken her to the vet anyway so barring any medical issues, I think she’s just being a nagging mommmy!

@lealorali: while i appreciate your response to my QUESTION. do not come on here all rude telling me I need to spay my cat. I’m quite aware there is an animal over population as I adopted her and another cat from a shelter. It was not IRRESPONSIBLE, time got away from me due to chronic liver problems that had me in and out of the hospital for months debating a liver transplant. I’m WELL aware of the average kitten litter as I researched all sorts of stuff upon discovering she was pregnant.
Don’t come on to a post and spit irrelevant crap calling people irresponsible when you don’t know jack crap about them. GREAT thanks.
