how many kittens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i do not know the answer to this but maybe some of you do, how many kittens can a mother cat have in one litter? i had a girl tell me at work that she had a cat that had 10 kittens i did not think this was possible, is it? i told her she should have got the cat spayed and the mommie cat wouldnt have had to go through that, i bet she was exhausted, poor thing, if this is possible

It is possible to have 10 kittens. They would be small and some may not survive, but it can happen.

I had a female and she had 9 kittens . I think she had a hard time having them all . But all kittens were in good health . And yes she was spayed after that . And all kittens found a home .

wow, thats alot of delivering after that i bet mama cat thanked you for spaying her. i never knew they could have so many, the ones ive been around only had 2,3,4 at the most, how would they all eat, they had to share i guess

Well , I took mom cat and her girl in , to find them a new home at that time . It just happen that mom cat had kittens of 3 and her young girl kittens of 9 . So what they did was : sharing the nursing part with each other . The mom cat also help her little girl deliver her babys . That sure was very rewarting for me . I have never seen that in my life . It was a wonderfull experience for me to learn and to see .
