Give your pregnant cat the care and support she needs
This page offers general advice about feline pregnancy and how you can care for your cat. Talk to your vet about the best way to care for your pregnant cat.
A place to give birth
Queens may search for a suitable place to give birth. Ideally, pregnant queens should be introduced to a quiet, clean and warm kittening area away from the family and other pets at least two weeks before the expected birth date. Provide warm blankets and clean sheets that can be washed and replaced as necessary.
Neutering during pregnancy
Your cat can be neutered while pregnant, but you should discuss this with your vet. Neutering during pregnancy may be recommended following an unwanted mating or if there are significant health risks to the queen and/or the kittens.
