- Not a substitute for professional veterinary help.
As a responsible pet owner, you want to make sure you understand how to keep your cat happy and healthy. And, if you’ve got an unspayed female cat on your hands, that could mean dealing with a cat pregnancy.
A pregnant cat is known as a queen. According to one study published by the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA), free-roaming cats get pregnant on average 1.4 times per year (so, a little more than once a year) and have three kittens per litter. Although the Guinness Book of World Records notes there was once a cat who birthed 19 kittens at once.
