How Long is a Cat's gestation?

I think our cat may be pregnant. She is in heat and there is a gentleman caller around. Our gentleman caller was neutered. We were in the process of getting Phoebe spayed, but she found a way to get out of the house...and well, I guess one thing led to another. We also live in the country, in a wooded area, but it seems to be the same gentleman caller. Anyway, if she is "with kittens", how long before we see them. Thanks! Peace -- Beth

  • 67 days is common as well. It is not dangerous for the cat.
