Cats may be lovable creatures but it’s probably smart to neuter your pet to prevent more cats appearing than you can take care of. Still, if you have a female cat, you may wonder if its latest behavior is simply a mood swing or because your cat may be pregnant.

Like humans, cats can get morning sickness and refrain from eating. However, if your cat’s stomach starts getting much larger too fast, feel her belly to detect lumps that may be developing kittens.

Once you know your cat may be pregnant, take care of her health and try to find homes for her kittens as soon as possible. Remember, get your cat spayed as quickly as possible to prevent more unwanted pregnancies.
