I’ve never noticed a difference in a cat’s nipples. Then again, I’ve never examined them on a regular basis for funsies.

Yeah, there’s a good chance you have a pregnant cat. You really need to get at least one of them spayed/neutered.

Cats will go into heat regularily if they are not pregnant or have not mated (every couple of weeks).  If she is pregnant, or mated with your male cat but did not get pregnant, then she would go longer without going into heat again.

 

Take her to you vet, they can palpate for any babies.  Depending on when she may/may not have gotten pregnant they can take a radiograph to look for babies.  If it is too early in the pregnancy to see babies they can use ultrasound to find a fetal heart beat.

cats mature very quickly, so I’m surprised it’s taken this long for them to get it on.  That said, the only way to tell is to take her to the vet… even then they won’t know until she’s really far along anyway.  Cats are only pregnant for like 9 weeks or something ridiculous like that.  Good luck and get them fixed ASAP.

I don’t know about girl cats that aren’t fixed, but my (neutered) boy cat’s nipples are flat flat flat.  I’ve only seen noticeable nipples on lactating cats or cats that have had kittens already.

@gpsp2B:  i strongly suggest you take them both to the vet, see if she’s pregnant and get them both fixed asap or the kittens will keep on coming and there’s already too many stray cats and cats in shelters

@wandering_gypsy:  It’s because her male cat has only been matured about a month or two so depending on when the female went into heat, this was probably his first shot (no pun intended) at catching her in her fertile time. 

 

 

 

@gpsp2B:  I looked online and her nipples do look enlarged. I also checked Maeby’s nipples and hers are waaaaay smaller. If that helps at all. My money is really on her being KU. DH’s dad was director of the Humane Society in Cowlitz and Clark counties, and he says they definitely look pregnant.

@Mrs.Maeby:  I wasn’t trying to be rude, I just don’t understand the “waiting to fix them” if you have a male and female in the same house, I get that boys stuff needs to drop, but the “waiting until they are 6 months old” (or come into heat first) isn’t really necessary anymore… Most vets in my area will spay/neuter as long as the animal is over 2 lbs (and the necessary junk is easy to get to)… With cats that’s usually the 3 month mark.

I worked at an animal shelter and saw lots of kittens having kittens, it’s really sad.

We took in a stray cat years ago. I went to pet her one day and realized her nipples were sticking out. That cat turned out to be pregnant.

Take her to the vet and see what they say and if she is start working out what you are going to do with the kittens now. If she isn’t book both of them in to get desexed.

@gpsp2B:  T_T You had two cats of different genders and never got them fix? DX She’s def pregnant… Get both cats to the vet ASAP (like, next week) Get boy kitty fixed, and ask about girl kitty’s condition. If she is not prego, get her neutered.
