Talking Update on Mom and Baby found under our porch!

Well unfortunatly baby has disappeared. He got scared during all our neighbors 4th of july fireworks and ran off. We saw him twice after that but haven't seen him anywhere in the neighborhood since. Even none of neighbors have seen him.

We took mommy to the vet and well (Surprise!!!) She's pregnant again, very preg. Already you can see her nipples and big ole belly. Good thing is she's extremely friendly. We're going to set up and enlosed area on our screened porch for her, hopefully she'll have the kittens there where we can also interact with them as they grow, and we'll be able to find good home for them when their old enough, we DEFINATLY don't want any more stray kitties in the world! Then after this litter we can have her fixed. We were going to let her stay in the house but unfortunatly one of our male cats doesn't approve of her (even though she likes him) so she's going to be a porch kitty, she doesn't seem to mind.

Anyone have any good info on preg. kitties? I've had a preg. dog before but that was years ago and I'm sure it's not the same. What kind of set up would she like best for her babies to be born in, any kind of food better than another (I know when out dog was preg. we had to feed her puppy food for extra nutrition), any advice would be great!!!!

I have found preg. cats tend to have the kittens wherever they decide, but it wouldn't hurt to set up some warm dark places for her to choose from.
Then just let nature take its course.

Oh my more kittens! I am sad for her but happy you did not terminate the pregnacy. It is wonderful that after this litter you are going to have her fixed. It is also great that you are taking care of her. I am sure having another litter again so soon cannot be good for her. But with the proper food she will do fine.
I have a ton of cats but never had one that had babies. Part of me is glad and part of me wishes I had seen the miracle.
Maybe after the babies come your male will calm down. Often it takes time for cats to acccept each other.
Good luck and keep us updated with pictures.
Hopefully the "big brother" will come back soon.
