My understanding is that cats can get pregnant at 4 months of age...are you trying to breed them?? I would suggest you talk to some of the breeders who post on this forum before you start any breeding. If your cats are not show quality, then I suggest you get them fixed. There are several clinics that do early age spay/neuter..as early as 8 weeks of age.

What kind of cats do you have? Different breeds have different standards. If they are not pure breed the should be fixed ASAP.

You should really get your cats fixed. Just look at www.petfinder.com and see all the cute perfect cats that need homes. Breeding is for people that want to breed pure breed cats to help the breed keep going.

Agreed...if your kittens are simply your average domesticated kittens...please get them fixed. Over 4.2 million animals (that includes kittens) were euthanized in 2002. Please have your kittens fixed!!!

Unless you are a breeder and have pure breed cats, please do not consider breeding. Get them fixed ASAP. There are just too many homeless cats in the world.

Maybe you could have asked all these questions in one post?

That is what I think about breeding cats simply because you "think" they are good quality.

I think this is very well said (taken from the forum rules):

Please make sure to spay or neuter your cat. Unless you are a professional breeder and your cat is part of a professional breeding program, please spay/neuter your cats before they reach sexual maturity (at the age of 4-6 months). By spaying and neutering you enhance your cat's quality of life and improve his or her health. You are also proving your love for cats because in acting as a responsible pet owner you are minimizing the problem of cat overpopulation. Please read this article and don't hesitate to ask for more information in the forums.

I have merged this with the other threads that were related. I have also decided to lock this thread for the following reasons:

This forum is, as has been posted already, a forum for breeders who breed cats to conform to a standard that has been set within various associations and breed clubs, it also exists for people to learn.

All that could be said about breeding domestic cats who happen to be cute in the eyes of their owner has already been said, PLEASE heed the advice from the folks that have taken the time to answer you.

Finally, I would have all-together deleted these posts had it not been for the good points mentioned above, and I really believe that to leave it open, would do nothing more than to fuel the fire of a flame war that could very easily get started.

I would also like to add that, although this forum is NOT intended for indescrimate breeding, as per the first post in this forum, I would like to remind everone that this is a place to get your questions answered without fear of getting slammed for asking. Everyone involved in this thread should please read it if you need to.

I hope all of you understand, but feel free to email me if you would like more clarification.
