Did you know this about cats in heat?

did you know that cats do not ovulate until they mate? Or that a female cat may give birth to five kittens, each from a different father? That whole (un-neutered) male cats have barbed penises to stimulate the female cat to ovulate?

I was looking in to cats and how they get pregnant to see if they ovulate like us and I did not know they ovulate when they have sex! Gosh I'm thankful humans aren't like that! lol.
I did know they could gove birth to kittens by different dad's though.

  • lmao. I got all mine spayed except ONE. I still had to get her spayed. The other 3 can't have babies though. I caught that ONE non-spayed cat doing the nasty yesterday! Hence the reason why I looked it up on the internet. haha.

  • That was very educational.. I guess I've never looked into animal's reproductive habits. I know one thing, my dog has gas really bad today!

  • Yes, also another little tidbit, if you have an unaltered female cat and she is driving you insane with her carrying on during her estres cycle, you can use a dry Qtip on her...it will...erm...stimulate her to ovulate and then she will end her cycle. It has the rough texture of the males penis. Of course I don't recommend anyone here do this, but my vet did it for me once. Little miss kittie had her spay scheduled and 2 weeks prior she came into heat, I was ready to launch her off the tallest bridge I could find lol so the vet did this and it worked like a charm.
