-Morning Sickness


-Swelling of the abdomen

-Prey Cravings



1. Patient must lay on her side

2. Medicine Cat must gently and thoroughly examine the abdomen for swelling, internal movement and/or vibrations

3. If the theory is confirmed, then the patient is expecting!


53 - 68 Days (2 Moons). If the gestation is sooner, then there may be complications with the mother or the young. If the gestation exceeds, then there may be complications and labor may have to be induced.


An expecting queen should be provided a healthy amount of high-protein and fatty prey such as fish and large birds to support herself and her unborn kits. Queens need as much energy as possible and her diet is essential for the health of her kits. Any herbal remedies during pregnancy should be avoided as much as possible.

After kitting, queens should still eat their fill to stay healthy for their kits and provide a nutricious supply of milk.


Expecting queens should have access to water at all times. Her hydration is important for the health of her kits and producing an adequate amount of milk. Queens should drink a healthy amount of water everyday to produce milk and keep her kits healthy.

After kitting, keeping hydrated is still highly encouraged, even moreso. Queens should drink a large amount of water everyday to increase the quantity of her milk.


Sleep is also important, including small naps. Queens need to conserve energy and should receive as much rest as possible everyday before kitting.

After kitting, queens won't be able to sleep as much. However, they should still receive a full nights rest and be able to take small naps when she is not busy with her young.


Excercise in queens should not be daily, but it is encouraged every now and then. It's healthy for the mother and her kits, but she should be guided by a warrior or Medicine Cat in case of complications.

After kitting, the queen will be too busy to excercise as much as she wishes to, and be too exhausted for the first couple weeks. However, as her kits grow and she regains her strength, she will be able to go out on occasion.


Contractions are normal throughout a queens pregnancy and will increase in in force throughout it until labor is reached. A queens contractions cannot be cured, but they can be eased with subtle herbs.


-Lower back pain

-Abdominal pain

-Intense contractions

-Disrupted sleep

-Mood swing


-Broken waters


1. Make sure the expecting queen is in a comfortable position with head support and 1-2 cats she chooses to be close by for comfort

2. Keep the queen hydrated during delivery with at least one cat by her head with wet moss to regularly keep her comfortable and cooled down.

3. Place a stick between the queens jaws to bite down on, have extras provided in case.

4. Keep her breathing regulated and in check

5. Instruct her to push when appropriate, keep the pattern consistent

6. After each kit is delivered, immediately remove the amniotic sac. Groom the newborn to keep them warm and help blood circulation.

7. Return the kit to the mother as soon as possible and allow it to suckle for milk . After procedure, check on the queen for any complications then leave her alone with 1-2 cats to bond with her kits. If she is not in the nursery, guide her as soon as she regains her strength.
