The cat is pregnant after estrus mating, and then will give birth to a healthy baby cat. During pregnancy, the cat needs to supplement enough nutrition to meet the development of the fetus in the cat’s abdomen. The owner should give the cat a healthy diet and sufficient water during the pregnancy. Of course, the health and care of the cat should also be paid attention to.
1. Three weeks after mating, check the pregnant omen cats, and have a 90% chance of pregnancy after mating. The gestational period is 63 days, but it is generally considered to be 56-65 days. Three weeks after mating, the cat’s nipples swell and turn pink. This is the first sign of pregnancy. Cats rarely “vomit”. However, they will have mild vomiting 4-17 days after mating, and their preference for food has also changed. It basically lasts for 2-3 days. After 4-5 weeks of mating, the stomach bulges slightly. The size of the stomach varies from fetus to fetus. During this period, cats are prone to miscarriage, so don’t touch their bellies. Short hair varieties, due to the role of hormones, hair color is very shiny. After 7 weeks, the stomach was more obvious and the mammary glands were opened. The body weight increased by 1-1.5 kg, and the movement was also slightly slow.
2. Pregnant cats, which are rich in protein and calcium, have increased appetite at 4 weeks of fetal development. For the cat with appetite, you can double the amount of food, but you can’t give too much at a time. You should give it 3-4 times. Food should be rich in protein and calcium necessary for fetal growth, such as liver, lean meat, eggs, milk, cheese, dried fish, etc. should be fresh and easy to digest. Severe diarrhea during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, so pay attention not to have a full meal or indigestion.
3. Consult the veterinarian about the diseases and abnormal conditions during pregnancy. If you get sick after pregnancy, you can’t take medicine for the cat without authorization. You should consult the veterinarian. At this point, the most important thing is to tell the veterinarian the exact time of mating. In addition, the pudenda should be observed frequently. Once blood is found, even if it is rare, it should be checked by a veterinarian immediately. If the cat can be treated quietly, even if some of the fetus died, the rest can still be saved. When pregnant, moderate exercise is also necessary, but jumping from a high place or being with a male cat may lead to miscarriage, so take care of it carefully.
