@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?

@gpsp2B:  I am no vet so I really wouldn’t know I stronly suggest you just take it to the vet.

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.

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!
