What could happen to a cat that gets pregnant only 2 weeks after she has delivered kittens?!

This is what my cat did.
Will she be okay?
I didn't even think they could get pregnant so soon after having kittens! We were going to get her fixed but can't because shes pregnant.

  • If you're going to let the pregnany continue, you are going to have to up her calorie intake a LOT. You should consider supplement feeding the kittens as well. It will be hard on her to feed the kittens she has as well as nourish the new ones growing inside her. Start off with feeding her a good kitten chow. You can add yogurt (and you can give some to the kittens as well), and a raw egg yolk 3 or 4 days per week, and ask your vet about a good canned food for her. Find a good KMR and feed them (bottle or bowl) twice a day and make sure your cat has food available all the time. She's going to be hungry. You can teach kittens as young as 2 weeks to drink from a bowl (although they are messy) by putting formula on your finger and gradually lowering it into the bowl. Keep an eye on them since mom may try to wean them early. They need milk until they are eight weeks old even if they are eating kitten chow. GL

  • You can still fix her, it will just cost you a bit more, I don't think it will kill her but I do not think it is very good for her.

  • If a cat gets pregnant 2 weeks after she delivered kittens then she will deliver a litter of puppies this time. :)

  • I had this problem! I waited until she had the second batch of kittens, then made darn sure she never got outside (Not easy in the summer with 3 kids) but then I got her fixed as soon as she weaned them.

  • I dont; want to get her fixed while shes pregnant, they would abort the kittens and I just can't do that.

  • so you would rather bring more kittens into the world that could end up homeless or in shelters. Get her fixed before she comes in contact with another male and has yet another litter after this one.

  • If she's not an indoor cat already, I think you should make her one. Then, after she has this litter you can get her fixed before she is able to get pregnant again. I don't think I'd be able to spay/abort either, BUT I would have gotten her fixed BEFORE she went into her first heat or atleast kept her inside where she should be.

  • That would have been the ideal idea CollinBayleeMom...however..I had no idea a cat would go into heat while still nursing and only two weeks after she had the kittens. She started acting all funny one morning (humping on a chair leg,lol) and we were like, Uh oh..and I'm serious..like 15 minutes later, my son walks in the doors and she escaped out the door.We tried to catch her but she was gooooonee...guess she really needed some booty, nasty cat,lol. She didn't come back till the next morning and behold...she was no longer humping anything. She was knocked up. That quick. This time around, I will be getting her fixed very soon after she has the kittens.
    I am just concerned for her health, getting pregnant so soon and all.
