How long are cats pregnant

Whether you are concerned that your cat may have gotten pregnant or you are thinking about breeding your cat, you will be amazed about the information you need to know to help your cat stay healthy. While older cats get pregnant easier then younger cats, you will find that the cat pregnancy length, how long a cat is pregnant beginning with mating to actually having her litter, is fairly standard.

For the majority of the time, you will find that a cats pregnancy length is anywhere between 57 to 70 days. The average for most cats though is around 64 days which is about 9 weeks.

There are many signs to keep a look out for when you are trying to figure out if your cat is pregnant. The first and most likely sign you will notice is the absence of your cat going into heat. An unspayed female cat will generally have a cycle she will follow for going into heat and it will be from between ten to fourteen days.

If she suddenly stops giving the signs of having gone into heat, there is a good chance that she might be pregnant. The first physical sign that you are likely to see is that her nipples will have a swollen, slightly tender look and they might turn pinker in color.

You will notice that your cat will start to get hungrier as her body begins to need more resources to nourish her unborn kittens. Along those lines, you cat may start to vomit, however if this happens more then 3 or 4 times you might want to take her to the vet to get her checked out.

By the time she is five weeks pregnant, around 35 days, her stomach will begin to swell. From this point on, she will keep getting bigger and bigger until her litter is born.

Take some time and familiarize yourself with the process of pregnancy in cats; this might be important for you and the health of your pet!
