On average, a cat pregnancy lasts 60-90 days. The first signs of pregnancy are observed at about 2 months into the gestation period and usually consist of increased appetite and urination. Cats can mate for six to eight weeks before they know they’re pregnant, but cats may go through a “false pregnancy” or pseudopregnancy in which they become stressed because their environment suddenly changes after mating. During this time, if a female is not spayed she will have kittens sooner rather than later. In other words: If you don’t get your kitten spayed until 4-6 months old… You could be faced with having to do it again!
How much does an adult cat cost? What about getting your pet neutered/spayed?
