How long is a cat pregnant?

My cat is expecting her first litter and I want to know what to expect.

The typical gestation period is ewtween 57 and 69 days, but more than likely the kittens will be born on day 63 or 64. Once your cat becomes overly restless or anxious, you can be sure the kittens will be arriving within 24 hours.

Cats are pregnant for an average of nine weeks. At threeish weeks, your cat will start showing the first physical signs of pregnancy (pink nipples) and the first behavioural signs (changes in eating, sleeping and suckiness are common). At about 5 weeks, your cat will get a swollen belly and start looking for warm, nesty places to have her babies.

The gestation period of a cat is approximately nine weeks. Sixty-five days is usually the estimate, but a cat's pregnancy length can vary sometimes either more or less than the average by a few days. When your cat is ready to begin nesting, she is likely to give birth within a few days.

The average gestation of a cat is 60-67 days long. When your cat goes to deliver her kittens she will probably go off to a secluded area of your house to deliver, as cats like to be alone.


Answer by  fannyloo (90)

A cats gestation period lasts for approximately 58 to 65 days, or 9 weeks. Unfortunately, cats do not begin to show a noticeable "bulge" until 3 or 4 weeks before they deliver so it is often hard to tell how much longer you have to go before your cat delivers her kittens. Cats usually deliver 2 to 5 kittens.

Gestation for a cat is usually 63-65 days though different breeds, such as Siamese, may be a little longer as 67 days.
