Pregnancy in Cats
Did you know that pregnancy in cats can differ from cat to cat and breed to breed? Just like pregnancy is different for individual women, so it is different for individual cats. If you are caring for a pregnant cat, be sure to schedule a wellness exam with your vet so your vet can exam the cat and discuss important care steps for your cat during pregnancy. In general, a cat is pregnant for about nine weeks. Physical signs and behavioral changes may appear or you may not realize your cat is pregnant at all. Physical signs may include a bulging abdomen. Behavioral changes could include your cat becoming more agitated or cuddly than usual. It’s important to know that cat’s go into heat when the days are longer and the weather is warmer.
