It is a moment that, for various reasons, is unique and magical at the same time. But what needs to be done for help the cat during childbirth?
There are essentially 5 things to do, bearing in mind that felines are quite autonomous when they are pregnant and bring their babies into the world. Therefore, they are mostly "supplements" which, however, must never be lacking in situations of this type!
A large cardboard box
You probably already know how much cats love cardboard boxes. Well, even in this case they play a very important role and that is to provide a place Safe where the cat can give birth to her young in total comfort and safety. The size of the box, of course, must be relative based on the number of puppies that will be born (identifiable through ultrasound by the veterinarian).
Some old towels
The box, of course, must not be empty inside but must have towels old, possibly in large numbers also like reserve. This is because, obviously, during childbirth there is a risk that the affected area gets dirty.
A thermal pillow
Especially when the birth takes place on particularly days cold, it is important to place a thermal pillow under the towels, which will help to hold the towel down hot kittens once born.
To guarantee even more cleaning, we recommend that you also place one or two absorbent pads outside the nest. This will be especially useful if the cat, for one reason or another, has to move from the place where she is lying.
A litter box
After the birth, of course, you will have to clean up all that will get dirty and therefore you will need a basket, perhaps positioned right there near you, into which to throw everything.
We are in North Carolina, specifically in Jamestown, a resident of the area saw a stray cat wandering around his property. She asked around the neighborhood if it belonged to anyone, but no one claimed it. In those days the area was hit by severe thunderstorms.
This video tells a truly emotional story; in fact, in the movie it is seen as a kitten gives birth to four puppies and you can see how this takes care of them. The mother and the puppies are in a makeshift shelter that the authors of the video probably fixed.
The arrival of one or more puppies is always news that fills the heart with joy. Our four-legged friend is becoming a mother and we are elective 'grandparents', since she is a full-fledged member of the family. Those who decide to take a female cat often do so out of the desire to have puppies that walk and run around the house, unless the one they are carrying to term is not an unwanted pregnancy.
This is a question that is as rare as it is underestimated. But, actually speaking, what cats do during the day inside the house, apart from eating and drinking? Maybe you could already give some answers, if you too have a feline. We are sure, however, that you do not know them all, so discover them with us!
Quite often people tend to overlook this detail, yet know in advance what to expect from the early hours with a new cat it is very important. First of all it serves to start already prevented and then it is very useful for many other various reasons.
