Male cat helped Queen in labor? (male cat is her son)My stray cat (lives outside) was in labor, she was nursing her male kitten(at least 8 mos.old)-which surprised me, he's too big for that now!
I was worried he would hurt her since he was suckling so hard and pushing
her belly- I even got him away from her, but she just looked at me and
meowed, and he returned again to continue. I called a vet hospital for
advice, they said to keep him away- but when I came back out to check
on them, she had birthed a kitten! The male cat was just curled up next
to her as if he was content he'd done his job and was acting as a "guard".
During the time the male was suckling while she was obviously in labor-
I got the sense she "needed it", she was meowing a little off and on-
and seemed as if it was helping her.
Has anyone ever seen a queen behave this way with another cat while
After the 1st kitten-she meowed at me and then picked up her kit and
ran off with the male following her. She went in under the house.
I have no idea how many kitts she had, I can only hear them sometimes.
She's taking care of them and still regularly comes out to eat.
She had the kitts(maybe just a few- I'm not sure)on March 1st, 2012.
I just wonder how long will she keep her kitts hidden away?
