is my 6 month cat pregnant?

by Ashley

My Cat is about 6 months old. I have noticed in the last two days that she has gained a little bit of weight in her belly,and she is very sleepy and irritable. Could she be Pregnant?

Answer by Kate
well at 6 months old it is possible for her to get pregnant. However it is usually not notable until the later stages of pregnancy.

If she has been able to go outside and is not spayed then there is a good chance that she is.
please see my page about cat pregnancy here for more information

If you notice any other strange behavior or signs of ill health then your best option is to take her to the vets to have her checked over.

best wishes Kate

My cat has been crouching down on her back feet with butt in the air. Crying off and on all day and night as if she is in pain! She is around six months old? She has had a BM today.

Thank you! But she is acting better now she is wanting to lay on my lap and be petted kina out of character for her. She normally only does this at night time but at least she is in a better mood.

Thanks for the advice I will probably take her to the vet sometime this week just to make sure she is ok.
