10 rules for caring for a pregnant cat
1. The diet. The body of a pregnant cat needs more energy, because now kittens also need it. Pick up a special balanced food for pregnant cats of suprepremium class. He will supply your ward with all the nutrients she needs. You will give the cat the same food during lactation. Look for rulers labeled “for pregnant and lactating cats” and make sure that the first ingredient in the composition is meat.

2. Physical activity. Even if your cat is a perpetual motion machine, it is better to lower the level of activity during pregnancy. Do not encourage the cat in the desire to rush around the house headlong and jump on the cabinets.

3. Stress is better not to combine with pregnancy. It is better to postpone the repair in the apartment or moving until the kittens are attached, and the cat is completely restored. Protect the cat from irritants so that it does not have to be nervous.

4. Limit communication with children. Even the most accurate child can accidentally scare or injure a cat. Contact between the pregnant pet and the baby is best minimized.

5. Limit communication with other pets. If there are other animals in the house, try to keep them as free as possible from the pregnant cat. And it doesn’t matter that they used to be friends. New instincts awaken in the expectant mother, and her behavior, like her reaction to those around her, can be unpredictable.

6. Give the cat more freedom. Let her live in her own rhythm, don’t bother her in vain. She spends a lot of energy on bearing offspring and deserves a “vacation”!

7. No self-walk! Self-walking – this is dangerous for any cat, especially for a pregnant one. Do not leave the cat unattended!

8. If the cat does not yet have “his” place in the house, then it’s time to create it. Get a special couch with sides and place it in a secluded place, but be sure to level the floor. Help the cat arrange a “nest”, where she is likely to give birth to kittens.

9. The cat must be monitored by a veterinarian. He will monitor the health of the expectant mother, give more precise instructions on how to care, depending on the condition of a particular cat, and monitor the birth.

10. A pregnant cat should not be vaccinated, treated against parasites and given pills. The only exceptions are cases when medications are prescribed by a veterinarian.
