Most kittens reach reproductive maturity around 6 months old, so are able to reproduce around this age. So yes, a kitten can indeed get pregnant at 6 months old.

However, letting a young and not yet mature (a cat is considered adult at 1 year old) cat breed comes with increased risk for both mother and litter. A kitten is still developing mentally and physically, and there is a high risk that there are complications with the birth, she may just not be ready to look after the kittens once they are born, or in some extreme cases, the kittens or mother may not survive. The possible health problems and the costs involved are often not worth the risk. It is cheaper and far safer for a kitten to be spayed before she reaches reproductive age.

Your kitten should weigh about 7-8 lbs.


I have a nearly 6 month old kitten who weighs 9.5 lbs. We think he is part Maine coon though.


Yes. It is possible for female cats as young as 4 months old to start her first heat cycle. It is recommended that cats should be spayed before six months to prevent any unwanted behaviour or chance of a kitten becoming pregnant.


If the 6 month one dog has tedticles and is sexually mature and neither if them are neutered, yes.


4-month old male canines are highly unlikely to be able to get any female canine pregnant. However, female canines as young as 6 months can get pregnant by more sexually mature males.


if it is attached to the kids then it might be marking it territory


He can start breeding at around 4 months sometimes even younger! Ans your 6 month old bunny is at breeding age now!


No. A rabbit has to be at least 1 year old to become pregnant. This is incorrect. They can be breed or become pregnant for 5-6 months on.


yes a cat over about 4 months can potentially become pregnant

My 6 year old chihuahua is pregnant by a 6 month old chihuahua. The vet said that the pups may not survive after birth.


Even though a kitten does not stop fully developing until 8 - 12 months, a female cat is sexually mature by the age of 6 months and from this age she can become pregnant. It is recommend you have your female kitten spayed when she is between 4 and 6 months old if you want to avoid unwanted pregnancies.


Yes, a six-month old kitten is very likely to have reached sexual maturity and able to breed. This is why it is recommended to have the cat neutered as soon as possible. If the kitten is healthy and weighs enough, it may be neutered as young as two months old, although the usual age for this procedure is four to six months.


Yes, dogs become sexually mature at the age of 6 months.


A 6 month baby is six months old


Yes a female dog can get pregnant but I would suggest you don't let the male near the female.


A kitten can get pregnant the very first time she goes into heat, at 5-6 months is what I've always been told by my vets. If you don't want her to get pregnant, you should definitely get her spayed when she's old enough. Even if she's a strictly indoor cat, she can still (and probably will) escape outside when she goes into heat.


Dogs mature sexually sometime between 6 months of age, to 8 months of age. It's 100% possible that a 6 month old puppy could impregnate a female dog of any age. The 6 month old puppy needs to be neutered, to prevent a lifetime of "accidents" and unwanted/unplanned litters.


A cat can first come in to season from the age of 6 months onwards, so the answer is 6 months old for first pregnancy. However, cats are still very much kittens at this age. They are still growing and developing themselves, so letting a 6 month old kitten become pregnant can be incredibly dangerous, risking the lives of the mother and the unborn kittens.It is best to spay kittens before they reach 6 months old to stop them having any unwanted litters.if your cat is around six months, she can have babies.


Most female and male cats reach sexual maturity at around 6 months of age, although instances of much earlier pregnancies have been recorded. At 6 months, a cat is still very much a kitten and is still developing mentally and physically. It is not ideal at all for a kitten to have kittens. A cat under a year old is considered a kitten as it is still growing and developing. If a kitten becomes pregnant at such a young age, she has to share all her energies with growing and developing herself and her unborn litter. This divide in bodily resources increase the risk of problems or fatalities for both the mother and the kittens. For this reason, kittens should be spayed and neutered before 6 months old.


At 9 months old, it is still a kitten. Kittens are still growing and developing a great deal at this age, and do not reach adulthood until after 1 year old. Just because kittens reach sexual maturity at 5-6 months, doesn't mean it is fine for them to have kittens. However, at this age, the cat is still very much a kitten and pregnancies from cats that young rarely produce a healthy litter of kittens, and poses a risk for the young cats' (and litter) health and well-being.


It depends on what breed of cat.


at around 6 month old they start to become in heat but vets perfer they are 1yr before breeding them mines got pregnant at 7 months and she did great had 1 puppy
