What to feed pregnant 6 mo. cat
A little background. We have two cats that were abandoned in a litter of 6. We had all spayed/neutered and because they are outdoor cats, only two have survived to 3 yrs. old. We found a kitten in April and I expect she is now about 6 mos. old. We didn't have her spayed because we simply can't afford to have all feral abandoned kittens fixed only to have them become expensive coyote food. Sorry to be harsh, but this is reality.
My feeling is that if an outdoor cat makes it to a year, she/he is pretty well 'street wise- trained'. Anyway, this baby is probably pregnant and I want to know what to supplement her diet with to make sure she has a healthy pregnancy. We will definitely have her and her kittens fixed because I don't need anymore litters and also can't stand the smell of the in-tact males that have been spraying since she has been in heat.
Would adding extra chicken and/or cottage cheese to her diet be helpful? She hunts like the others, but I don't think she eats what she catches yet.
