Cats can become pregnant from four months old while they are just kittens
Until you have your female cat spayed she will be pestered by male cats who want to mate with her.
You may have heard to female cats should be allowed to have a litter before being spayed, but this simply isn’t true. Not only does spaying protect against unwanted pregnancy, it also protects your cat from deadly diseases. Remember Lucy’s Law makes it illegal to sell kittens unless you are a registered breeder.
If your cat has not been neutered they will need to stay inside until they have been snipped. Two cats who are brother and sister or father and daughter will mate together, when the urge to mate is so strong she will not be fussy who she mates with.
There is a very high risk of pregnancy if you have male and female cats together who have not been neutered.
