Signs of a pregnant cat

Are you wondering if your cat is pregnant? How do you know if your cat is pregnant?

You can look out for a few signs of pregnancy in your cat because they occur during the cat's gestation period.

Cat gestation usually lasts between 63 and 67 days or nine weeks. Your cat might be pregnant if it shows changes in appearance or behavior, such as gaining weight or sleeping more than usual.

However, there are even more signs and symptoms that you should look for before you take your cat to the vet.

Heat cycles change

Cat's heat cycle generally lasts for 10 to 14 days. She will likely stop her heat cycle if she becomes pregnant.


Most of the cats gain 2 to 4 pounds of body weight due to pregnancy. Always keep an eye on your pet's weight and note any fluctuations. 

Swollen abdomen DUE TO PREGNANCY

A swollen belly may indicate that your pet is pregnant because the stomach swells about five weeks before birth.

More affectionate DURING PREGNANCY

Due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, your cat may seek more attention.
