Cats/Kittens in Heat??

Question
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?

Answer
Hi
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.
