What happens if a cat gets pregnant by her brother?
My cat got pregnant by her brother, her kittens all were female with one girl. I adopted one of them and I would love for my 3 year old daughter to have one but I just don’t think that would happen. The one daughter who was adopted is very independent and I would just worry about having two girls in my house. I do have a big dog and two cats. Would she be ok with it?
For a cat to become pregnant by her brother, a brother must be a brother to the mother as well as to the feline female. So, the cat would need to be a mama cat to her brother as well. If you have not already adopted the brother’s kittens, you can certainly still adopt the kittens that have been born by the cat, as well as the young kitten that was born to the mother by the brother. However, the odds of the offspring being genetically male are very slim.
The most likely result would be that you’d have at least one but, most likely, more than one female kitten. If you adopted one of these kittens, you’d have to be prepared to spend the first few weeks keeping the girls separated. In order for a female to produce fertile eggs, she must be in estrus – her menstrual cycle must be open, and only one of her nipples should be swollen and red. In the meantime, you would have to find a way to manage your other kitty so that he would not accidentally get “injured” by a sister that should not be in the vicinity of his own offspring.
I’ve worked with many owners who have one male cat and one female cat that has had kittens. I know of at least one case in which the mother cat was actually able to get pregnant again, resulting in another litter of kittens. Of course, that cat had previously been bred by her previous owner. The question that would arise here is how do you tell one sister from the other? A good example is shown in this photo.
You’re going to need to watch your cat closely. The one that should be pregnant should have reddish nippled and swollen nipples, and one or the other should be using urine marking. You may need to bring in another cat to help you tell them apart. You might also have a second cat whose job it is to keep the twins separated and ensure that they are always kept apart.
So, yes, your cat can be responsible for your success in reproduction. If you want to have a successful litter, you should take your cat to the vet and get tested to ensure that she is sexually mature, and that she has all of her parts in working order.
The test that I would recommend is called a “Pregnancy Test,” and they are very inexpensive and easy to get. If you think your cat has kittens, then you need to make an appointment at your vet. The vet will need to know how many days your cat has been in heat, and if you are on birth control, or if you are using your own hormones to regulate your cycle. You will also need to have your cat spayed or neutered, as if your cat is pregnant, a female will not be able to have kittens.
The next step is to monitor your cat closely, and to keep your cat as calm as possible. Cats do not want to be caged up and confined to a cage, so if that is your situation, you may have to be prepared to have your cat spayed or neutered earlier than you expected. This would be because you have your cat trapped in a cage. For the most part, we would recommend waiting until your cat is more than 6 months old, and also making sure that your cat is healthy.
Finally, after your kitten is born, you should observe it closely. If you think your cat is having kittens, then keep your cat isolated from the rest of the household. If your cat is having twins, you will need to monitor your cat constantly for signs of “jealousy”. Cats are very territorial, and if they sense that a “familiar” cat is around the litter area, then they will be jealous. They may leave the litter area or even attack the other cat. If your cat has a litter of kittens, you will have to do something to calm them, as they will want to keep their litter protected. Some people try to place a pillow under each kitten as they are born, but that may not be helpful. You may need to think about buying a special cage for the kittens, as they will need to be isolated from each other and from your cat for a few weeks. It is possible that your cat will be aggressive towards the kittens, so you may need to get the kittens to a new household, if you are comfortable with that. If the kittens are healthy and not deformed, then you may be able to re-home them.

If you are thinking about adopting a kitten, you may be thinking about what you need to do to take care of it. Here is a list of some of the most important things you should know about taking care of a kitten:
First, you may want to think about feeding your kitten. If you do not know anything about kitten feed, then you may want to contact your vet or the kitten care group for your area. These groups are usually able to answer most of your questions about what you will need to feed your kitten, or what they recommend you do to take care of your kitten. If you have a specific kitten care product that you want to use for your kitten, please click here to go to the kitten care guide. You may also want to look at some of our articles on feeding a kitten here.
You will also need to provide your kitten with a suitable bed. You may want to think about your home’s décor, as well as your kitten’s.
Once you have the right type of bed, you should get a heat source for your kitten’s bed. Cats can get cold if they are not sleeping in a warm place, so you may want to consider a warming pad to go with your bed.
You will need to provide your kitten with a litter box, just as you would for any cat. Your kitten may use your regular cat litter box, or a separate cat litter box. In this case, you will need to clean the litter box after each use. You should also put down a few cat nip to keep your kitten entertained while you are cleaning.
