How long does a cat’s pregnancy last?
The average length of a cat’s pregnancy is 63-65 days from the time of conception. Signs that a cat might be pregnant include increased appetite, restlessness, and nesting behavior. During the later stages of pregnancy, you may also be able to feel the kittens moving inside her abdomen. After the kittens are born, they should nurse right away for food and warmth. The kittens will then continue to nurse for about 6-8 weeks, when they can gradually start eating solid food.
It is important to keep an eye on the mother cat during birth and lactation to ensure that all goes smoothly and that she is healthy. If there are any problems or complications, your veterinarian should be contacted for advice and treatment. Additionally, the kittens will need to be checked for overall health and growth at regular intervals during their first few weeks of life.
