How soon after giving birth can a cat get pregnant?

My cat had kittens about 5 or 6 weeks ago. My male cat is all horney again... but his appointment to get fixed isnt for another 2 weeks. Can my female cat still get pregnant? And should I just do my best to keep them separated for this time?

  • Any time. They can come into heat within a few days of giving birth.

  • Definetely keep them separeted. If you still have any of the kittens left you might want to keep him away from them too. He might get aggressive with them which could in turn cause a fight between him and the mama. Glad to hear you're getting him fixed though! YAY! My mom had cats that kept having kittens and she didnt get them fixed til after they both had 4 litters. It was ridiculous.

  • Yep. a cat can get prenant while she is still nursing the first litter. A cat can almost stay pregnant! I would keep them apart for sure.
