Cats and Mating: What Do You Need to Know?

Share

It takes about 26 to 35 days from the time your cat gets pregnant for a veterinarian to tell for sure. The diagnosis can be made by ultrasound or by feeling the abdomen of your cat — or the queen, as she’s called when she’s “with kittens.” The uterus area should feel like a string of pearls. At about 20 days, you should be able to feel the small fetuses if your cat is relaxed. Some cats will show enlargement and a pink color of their mammary glands as early as the 18th day of pregnancy. A cat is usually pregnant for 58 to 68 days.
