pregnant cat

hi, my cat, skeeter, is pregnant, i think she is very close to birth becasue i can see the kits moving inside her and i think she has milk now. im not sure exactly how many weeks she has been pregnant but i know she will have them very soon. this is her first (and last) time, and i think she is only going to have 2, or 3 at most. how do i know when she will be about to have her kittens? and the fater is her brother (it was an ACCIDENT, my sisters fault), so will this seriously affect the kittens, beside things like extra toes?ive already found a home for one f them. is there any other info you can give me? thankx =]

The only info i can give is get her fixed as soon as you can after those babies!
Also generally as far as inbreeding goes, first generations tend to be ok, and normal, it's after that you have to worry, so just be sure that if any kittens go home with litter mates, they get spayed and neutered. (I'm in the same position, I have a male degu who mated with his sister AND mother because the people we got them from a month ago told us they were ALL female...little did we know...)

I would get both her and the male fixed ASAP.
