Cats/Kittens in Heat??


I have two kittens, one female one male, about seven months old. And, I believe that that the female is in heat. And the male is reacting to that. Can he get her pregnant at that age?

yes cats reach sexual maturity between4 and 6 months old so yes it is possible that they could mate. I would keep them apart until you are able to have them fixed (if that is what you are going to do).

I have included my pages about these subjects for your information.


best wishes
