New here found this in a hurry. Can anyone link me to a sticky or previous thread on birthing? I thought it was a bit early but my spotted Bengal is restless. She just started nesting 3 days ago but now she keeps laying in the bathtub and will not settle down. Could this be it??? I guessed 49 to 53 days from the initial 'encounters'. Can they have them early? Forgive me for not searching but I am in a panic. She brought all the blankets and tees into the dogs crate lol...should i move it to the bathroom with the tub?? It is my first time having a litter, but since she is tica with papers I wanted to preserve the spotted line since marble is the only coat in this area.

This post only just now showed up in my forums list as new, even though it was posted over 24 hours ago.

Did you queen kitten yet?

How did it go?

If she has not yet kittened, please call your breeder/mentor and ask for guidance. If you do not have a mentor, call the vet asap. Kittens go south quickly and if your queen needs a section or other attention, you need to do that asap too.

Good luck!

This forum has been acting a little odd these days. As for the birthing, hopefully, things have gone fine. Bengal owners who want to breed need to have a mentor -- which is usually the breeder of your cat. They should have a lifetime of support which most breeders provide. They will answer all your questions. I've never bred cats. I now little about the birthing process or what to expect. The general gestation period is 63 days, I believe. I'm going from memory. Cats can go into premature labor just as humans can. There can also be an error in calculation. Most cats birth within a day or two of their "due" date.

I hope you will post an update on your cat. We did have a member whose cat was pregnant and never knew the cat had kittens until she found all five dead in the closet.

IF your queen is birthing early, I hope you have kitten formula on hand as well as other supplies to provide for the little ones.
