Rosie (The Cat) Is Pregnant!!

Last week I was at Mum's and she asked me if I thought Rosie was pregnant. "Not 'arf!" I thought. Instead, I said, "Well, it looks likely because she's a very strange shape..that definitely isn't fat!" Anyway, to cut a long story short Rosie is now being cared for at Blackpool's fabulous cat sanctuary called Cat's Paws. Mum couldn't even see her be settled in 'because of covid.' Ridiculous if you ask me but there you go. We have no idea how many kittens Rosie will have but I felt at least two wriggling about. What a feeling that was, it was great. Rosie and the kittens will stay at the sanctuary for another 6 weeks or so after the birth, then all of them will be spayed/neutered. No charges have been made but Mum will definitely give them a massive donation because she wouldn't be able to cope with Rosie giving birth, especially if something went wrong. Question is; will John and I have one of the kittens? Too right!! In fact, I would love two..but we shall see. Mum is definitely having both Rosie and one of her kittens back. She was most put out when she was asked if she wanted Rosie back. I mean, 'Is the Pope Catholic?' Come on! Anyway, I just thought I'd let everyone know who's interested in these things.:-0

Wow! How wonderful! The patter of tiny paws! I'm glad you are going to be taking at least one of the kittens. And ofcause your Mum would want Rosie back! How could they even ask? I'm very interested to see pictures when the kittens are born.

Yes, it's unfortunate that Mum hasn't joined the smartphone revolution but the next time I'm there I shall take a few pics, including the kitten I'm bringing back home with me.

Now, how did that happen? I hope the sanctuary lifts their covid restrictions and let Mum visit Rosie and the kits before the 6 weeks are up.

@Janey1966 And Rosie is probably wondering why Mum sent her to that home for unwed kitties...

Well, the vet wouldn't do the op because he was convinced she belonged to someone else. She has been microchipped elsewhere since then but Mum's annoyed with the first vet because he was making out the cat wasn't hers. I am hoping that, once the kittens are born Mum can - at least, go and see them before the 6 weeks are up, like you said. Rosie is her cat after all.

I was wondering why Rosie wasn't spayed, but I read the comments. Honestly, I've grabbed more than one cat and gotten them fixed. My vet was of the same opinion as mine, if they are unfixed and roaming, then they are "strays" and need to be fixed. Now, most of them were male, but I did that with one handsome black cat and the next time I saw him he had a collar on.
