When does a cat give birth to a kitten

       First of all, we should wait for the female cat to estrus. However, the internal organs of the cat are not fully mature during the first estrus, which may cause dystocia. Therefore, it is suggested that the cat should be allowed to have sex during the second estrus, and then pregnant and give birth to the kitten.

       The emergence of estrus in a kitten is not equal to good mating. The first estrus is called oestrus. At this time, the male and female cats are not fully mature. After a period of time after the initial estrus, the male and female cats are basically mature. The male cats can produce the mature ones, and the female cats’ ovaries can produce mature ones. If they can get pregnant and give birth, it means that they have reached the goal Sexual maturity.

       However, the cat has just reached sexual maturity, which means that the cat’s bones, muscles and some organs have not yet reached full maturity. If the cat is mated and pregnant, it will affect the cat’s growth and development, make its individual smaller, premature aging, short life span, the offspring of poor development, thin body, low survival rate, or disease, breed degradation phenomenon. Therefore, in order to breed cats, we must reach the maturity of the basic body. Under normal conditions, the sexual and physical maturation of female cats is earlier than that of male cats. According to general experience, it is more suitable to breed short haired cats at 12 months old and long hair breeds at 18 months after birth. There are a few cats. Mating time should be later.

       The size and weight of male and female cats should not be too different. If the male cat is too large and the female cat is too small (for example, the weight of the male cat is more than twice that of the female cat), the fetus may be too large, resulting in dystocia. Before mating, the female must be in good health and weigh at least six Jin. The male and female cats are not suitable for mating. If a weak female cat is forced to mate, pregnancy and childbirth may cause life-threatening.

       There is a popular saying among the people that “three cats and four dogs”, which means that cats are born in three months and dogs are produced in four months, but this is not the case.

       A person’s Day is equivalent to two days for a cat and a dog. The pregnancy period of a cat is 56-71 days, which varies slightly according to the breed. Generally, the pregnancy period of some purebred cats, such as Bosi, will be slightly longer, but the average is 65 days. My cat’s pregnancy period is 65 days. Pregnancy less than 58 days is premature. It is about 9 weeks after the date of * *. If it is not clear about the date of * *, it will be 6 weeks after the date of turning red from * * because * * starts to turn red after 3 weeks of pregnancy.

       Cats have reproductive capacity from 7 to 12 months after birth. Oestrus occurred from January to March, may to August or October. The gestational period is about 62 days. One to eight fetuses are delivered at one time.

       Cats enter the adult stage when they are more than 12 months old, and their body and digestive system are basically mature. Adult cats begin to oestrus every spring. Both male and female cats can oestrus. The oestrus of male cats is usually caused by the smell of nearby female cats. A female cat can give birth to 12 at most and 2 at least, both 3-6. The cat with good physical strength can give birth twice a year.

       Cats are very fertile. They live in human cities and have no natural enemies. According to IFAW’s calculation, in theory, two cats without sterilization and their offspring will give birth to 420000 in seven years.

       Common sense of cat feeding

       1. Cats enter the adult stage when they are more than 12 months old. The body and digestive system of adult cats are basically mature and can digest and absorb nutrients better. Adult cats need full price and balanced nutrition to maintain the best health of cats and prevent aging.

       2. When cats are over 7 years old, they have a lot of health problems, especially in terms of metabolism, such as * * and eyes. To solve these problems, it is important to feed them low-fat and low-energy food to help them maintain their normal weight.

       Although cats belong to carnivores, their feeding habits become more and more complicated due to long-term domestication. Like to eat fishmeat and other fishy food. Domestic cats need a lot of protein. Animal proteins are usually more suitable for the needs of domestic cats than plant proteins. The cat’s food is mainly animal viscera, fish, shrimp and miscellaneous grains.

       In addition to human feeding, they also hunt a wide range of prey, including small rodents, birds, fish, and some arthropods. Domestic cats can’t adapt to vegetarianism, but they sometimes chew on the leaves of certain plants just to help spit out the globes that they swallow when combing their hair.

       Reproduction of cats

       A: the estrus time of male cats is about eight months, and that of female cats is about six to eight months old.

       A: male cats generally reach maturity at about one and a half years old, while female cats mature around one and a half years old. Female cats less than one year old may have dystocia due to incomplete pelvic development.

       A: the size and weight of male and female cats should not be too different. If the male cat is too large and the female cat is too small (for example, the weight of the male cat is more than twice that of the female cat), the fetus may be too large, resulting in dystocia. Before mating, the female must be in good health and weigh at least six Jin. The male and female cats are not suitable for mating. If a weak female cat is forced to mate, pregnancy and childbirth may cause life-threatening.

       A: male cats usually have oestrus every other week for seven to ten days. In estrus, the first is to roll or twist the body, some will howl, or leave urine in the corner of the room to attract the female cat. When an oestrus male cat wants to pee, he will stand his tail high and shake quickly. At the same time, a stream of urine will reach the [email protected]_ @¡£ The estrus of a female cat is usually once every two weeks, lasting about a week each time. Some female cats urinate when they are in estrus, which is rare. The performance of oestrus is rolling and howling. Pat the cat’s tail with her hand and she will curl the PP.

       It’s usually 62 to 75 days.

       First of all, we should prepare a nest with a cover for her, which is soft and soft, but should be flattened, not the kind of drum in the middle and four sides falling down, so that she can get familiar with it more often. In terms of diet, we should pay more attention to some nutritious high protein food, such as chicken breast, and pay more attention to the changes of cat’s appetite. Can be properly supplemented with some nutrients, such as Kingsley, etc., but healthy cats due to pregnancy caused by malnutrition is rare. If the cat is already weak, don’t let her be a mother at all. Pregnant cats should have proper exercise and activity. In addition, always bask in the sun.

       The day before birth, the mother cat appears restless, scratching at the bottom of her nest, barking and anorexia. There will be yellowish brown discharge from the birth canal. When the mother cat gives birth, she will scream with pain. If she is still walking around looking for a place, she will not come out again. If it is a long haired cat, it is necessary to cut part of the hair on the belly and hind legs in advance, so as not to affect production and lactation. Production time is usually at night. Female cats need to be quiet when giving birth and must be separated from the rest of the family.

       Many female cats are very capable and will take care of everything by themselves: tearing the kitten’s coat, biting off the umbilical cord, eating the placenta and licking the blood. But there are also some cats (especially those with long hair) who need human care to complete the production process successfully.

       There are some things to prepare for delivery: Scissors (to cut the umbilical cord), hot towel (to wipe the kitten’s mouth and nose as soon as the kitten falls on the ground or tears off the cytoplasmic membrane), thread or cotton thread (to tie the umbilical cord of the kitten), and alcohol (to disinfect the scissors).

       Wash hands before delivery.

       Before the kitten is delivered, the female will push her hind legs. It’s a gray bubble, and it’s the cytoplasmic coat. If the female cat doesn’t care, you have to tear it open immediately, and then quickly wipe the kitten’s mouth and nose with a hot towel to avoid choking on amniotic fluid (this is fatal!). When you hear the kitten chirp, it means that the kitten is alive! The placenta will take about five minutes to deliver. After the placenta comes out, use cotton thread to make a dead knot about two centimeters away from the belly, and then cut off the part of the umbilical cord connecting the placenta behind the knot. Put the kitten to her mouth and let her lick her fur.

       If the female cat has completed all the production process herself, the owner needs to check that each kitten’s umbilical cord is well bitten. If a lot of children are born, the final kitten may not be able to bite the umbilical cord perfectly, because the female cat has no strength. Before touching the kitten, touch the female cat first, and let her smell on her hands.

       Normally, a kitten should be born every 20 minutes. After all the kittens were born, the female began to nurse. This is the right position for feeding: the female cat lies on her side. The bigger the cat’s stomach, the better. After feeding, the female cat will lick the kitten’s PP to stimulate the kitten to defecate.

       Many female cats are very capable and will take care of everything by themselves: tearing the kitten’s coat, biting off the umbilical cord, eating the placenta and licking the blood. But there are also some cats (especially those with long hair) who need human care to complete the production process successfully.

       The birth of a female cat is a very physical work, and she should be properly fed with water. She needs to be fed food and water to her mouth.

       Cats rarely have dystocia. If the fetus is too large, or too little exercise during pregnancy, fetal position is not correct, dystocia will occur. There are several ways to deal with dystocia: if the kitten has exposed two legs, you can apply some grease, such as Vaseline, on the kitten and near the birth canal, while gently pulling the kitten to help the female cat exert force. If the dystocia has lasted several hours, the general kitten will suffocate in the mother’s body. Another way is to go to the hospital for oxytocin.

       This is a normal phenomenon. You can take 1 / 4 capsules of norfloxacin orally (only need to be fed once) to avoid inflammation. The flow will last for three or four days.

       Don’t bathe the cat one month before giving birth. Don’t bathe the female cat until the baby’s full moon.

       Give the female cats high nutrition and protein. At this time, the female cat is more picky and try to satisfy her. Kittens don’t need human care. Just check their stomachs every day.

       The kitten is weaned at two months. If the lactation period is more than two months, it will affect the health of the female cat, which is not conducive to the postpartum recovery of the female cat.

       In general, the first estrus of a female cat less than one week old is not included in the condition of.., because the female cat is not mature enough in body and mind, often having dystocia, or unable to take care of the kitten. After the second estrus of the female cat, the production condition is more perfect.

       As for the selection of male cats, those over 2 years old with good reproductive ability and rich experience are preferred. If the male cat is less experienced, it is better to match the female cat with more experience, which will be more successful.

       There are many kinds of cats, and the first estrus age of all kinds of cats is not the same.

       The first estrus of foreign type cats, such as Thai cats, is usually 5 months old or earlier, and most of the others are at 7 months old. Persian and other long haired cats have their first estrus at 10 months of age or later. Male cats mature later than female cats, and enter the stage of sexual maturity about 7 to 12 months old. Some people don’t mature until they are 2 years old. The female cat oestrus three to four times a year, especially in the spring, once every three to four weeks on average, and it will be oestrus repeatedly. The duration of oestrus varies according to the species of the cat, usually between 3 and 15 days.

       Extended data:

       Adult cats begin to oestrus every spring. Both male and female cats can oestrus. The oestrus of male cats is usually caused by the smell of nearby female cats. Female cats can give birth to 12 at most and 2 at least in a litter, generally 3-6. Cats with good physical strength can give birth twice a year.

       This is the need and behavior of an animal. If a female cat is in estrus, it will make a sound like crying, and its call is sincere and loud, and it is often emitted at night.

       The female cat’s sexual maturity time, precocious in 4, 5 months, also late to 1.5 years old. Many people think the cat is still young, so they are scared when they are big. Generally speaking, male cats are relatively late in sexual maturity, but they also have feces in 4 or 5 months.

       However, there are many factors for male cats to achieve mating, such as too light weight, low social status of cat race, psychological barriers, etc., even if they are mature, they can not mate.
