    Young cat possible having babies

    We have two cats one male and one female, both are under a year old. The female is 4mos. and the male is 6 months. The females breast seem to be getting some what larger, I have never noticed that any other cats unless they were going to have babies. Is it possible that our little female cat may be going to have babies? There has been no mating between them that I know off. I am home almost all the time.Thank you for your input.

    Find a low cost spay and neuter program and get them taken care of if possible. Female cats can breed very young at times, and males can be sneaky. It's about time to get her fixed anyway and if she is pregnant, having kittens when she is this young could really hurt her.

    Four months of age is a little young for a female cat to get pregnant, but not impossible. Have your veterinarian check her over and, if possible, see if she can be spayed. Your male cat is old enough to be neutered and, assuming your female is not already pregnant, she soon will be if you don't!
