When kittens are very young they nurse to get milk from their mother, but this is a very special time for the kitten to be loved, cuddled, cleaned, etc. by their mother. They have fond memories of being taken care of by their mother. When a male cat comes along (especially one that is friendly with the kitten) the kitten will try to nurse for comfort and security. There is nothing wrong with this behavior my kittens do this occasionally.

Because they are young and get confuesd.So they think the male cat is the mommy cat.Sometimes

No. It is not possible for a male cat to have kittens. In order to have kittens a cat must have a uterus and male cats do not have a uterus. If your male cat is having kittens, it is not a male, it is a female.

No. A male cat does not have the correct reproductive organs to carry and give birth to kittens. Only female cats can have kittens.

Yes, there is a male cat. There is a Tom cat and a Queen cat. The Tom is male, and the Queen is female. How else can we get kittens without the male cat? The mother isn't just MADE with kittens inside her!

You can get kittens by getting a female cat and a male cat together and waiting for them to breed.

My client witnesses a hermaphrodite cat have kittens, it looks mostly male from the outside but delivered kittens.

Answer:Many male cats will not kill kittens. This is in fact uncommon behaviour. It is far more common for a male cat to accept the kittens, or at the very worst give them a wide birth.Answer:Male cats feel jealous because his mate (the mother cat) is spending more time with the kittens so to be the star again he gets rid of the kittens.Answer:Some males will kill kittens that are not his, so that the female will come into heat again and he can father a litter, thereby passing on his own genes.They can do but not if you keep them SAFE when there growing up. My male cat was fine with our kittens and they were not his.

The male cat doesn't take part in the raising of the kittens it really doesn't care about the kittens just the female and the sex

No. Cat queens do require a male cat to fertilize them before they can have kittens.

The mother cat killed her kittens. She then let her 8 week old kittens nurse her. Rhen she tried to kill them. She screams like a wild cat.

Yes, provided the mother cat tolerates the male cat and they are supervised at all times. Never leave another cat that isn't the mother alone with the kittens on their own.

They get in heat and a male cat impregnates her.

An old cat can have kittens. Cat can always have kittens unless they die, are spayed, or kept away from an 'intact' male. Whether or not an old cat SHOULD have kittens, is another question all together.

Its generally not a good idea to let a male cat near kittens as he may harm them. no they dont harm the kittens but they dont care for the kittens - my experience with our cats :(

Cats can be territorial. But if this other cat has lived with you, he/she is likely to be more curious than anything. If you have an unneutered male, the male could possibly kill the kittens.

6 weeks if your trying to ween the kittens but they will nurse to 4 months if left alone

Males are territorial, they both think they are the boss.

It depends if you whant kittens a male is good but if you don't a female.

Yes but take it slow on introducing the kittens to th father or male.

It depends on how well your male cat behaves around other cats. I've had male cat protect and play with kittens, and I've had male cats that cant stand to be around them. But a stray male cat would most likely kill the babies. You just need to watch them. it depends if the male cat is wild or friendly and well trained.

orange is sex linked dominate, a female orange cat will almost always have a few orange kittens, and a male orange cat can have orange daughters --- If the orange one is the mother, all the male kittens will be orange. If the orange is the father, you wont get any ginger kittens but you will get tortoiseshell female kittens.

A neutered cat is male so he cannot have kittens. If he's neutered, he cannot father kittens either.

Probably, if you have a female and a male and nether are spayed or neutered.
