How to Tell If Your Cat Is Pregnant
If your cat is not spayed or neutered, then there is the possibility she can become pregnant. You certainly do not want to find yourself with a new litter of kittens unexpectedly, so pay attention to the signs of a pregnant cat.
After about four weeks being pregnant, your cat will start to show it in her stomach. The weight gain will be centralized around the tummy, so you should be able to tell if your cat is pregnant or if it is simply putting on weight.
Pinking refers to the nipples on your cat becoming pinker in color. They will also grow in size. The pinking process is generally the first visibly noticeable sign that your feline is pregnant.
Some other signs to look out for include:
- Increase in appetite
- Exhibiting nesting behavior such as tucking herself away in secluded places
- Becoming more affectionate
In order to be 100 percent certain if your cat is pregnant or not, you should take her into a vet to get an ultrasound. A cat pregnancy generally lasts for nine weeks, so there is plenty of time for you to take your feline in.
