Whats this about??? LOL Maybe its real kitty
Actually, if your cat has been pregnant for 6 weeks, she has a few more weeks to go before giving birth. If the male cat wants to mate, he will, even if the female is pregnant. But, more than likely, she will not let him near her. Being in heat is nature's invitation for the tom to mate, the female is usually more willing to let the male near her, but even then, not always. For those of you who have witnessed the mating of cats first hand know what I mean. They can get quite violent. As with my bobcats, they have been known to kill each other during mating, that is how rough they are during mating. (I do not breed bobcats however) As bengalbab already stated, the queen will induce ovulation after mating, so they do not need to be in heat. The male hanging around by your home is chasing the other males away, because he is claiming your female as his. He is just defending his territory, even though the other males are fixed. After Lilo has her kittens, if she is pregnant, please have her spayed once the kittens are on their own or don't let her out so she can pregnant again. There are too many unwanted kitties already
