That’s exciting news!

The gestation period for a cat is on average 64 days. If your cat is close to her due date then her symptoms are very normal. Cats that are close to giving birth will sleep more as well as reduce their intake of food or even refuse it all together! They will also likely show nesting behaviour. However, if you are concerned about your cat a veterinary examination may be required to ensure that all is going smoothly.
