###### Wiki User

Cats can have up to 5 litters a YEAR. it's usually more like 3 or 4. Each litter can be from 1 kitten to 10 or more. The average is 4-6 kittens per litter. Cats have kittens as long as they live. Each kitten in a litter has kittens. Each of those kittens has kittens. = According to humane sites one un-spayed female cat and one un-neutered male cat and their offspring results in 420,000 kittens in 7 years. = It takes a male cat to produce each of those kittens. So spay AND neuter.

The number of kittens a female cat can have in her lifetime depends upon climate and daylight hours, which is how her heat cycle is determined. Whether she is an indoor cat, a cat used for breeding, or an outdoor feral cat, will also affect the number of kittens she can have, as the mortality rate for outdoor kittens is about 75%. The average gestation period for a cat is 63 days, so theoretically she could have 3 litters a year, with an average litter being 4 to 6 kittens. Realistically, however, it is more likely that she would have one to two litters a year with the ability to produce approximately 200 kittens in her lifetime if she is not spayed.

Bobcats generally have one litter per year in the Spring. Some female bobcats have 2 litters. If a litter has 1-4 kittens (aka cubs), then a bobcat could have 2 to 8 kittens a year.

this also depends on who the father is: normally the kittens will be 2 of the mother's colouring and 2 of the father, however, sometimes the female could have mated with several different males, so it is a toss up., also the mom may only have as few as 3 kittens or as many as 5. it will be a true surprise!

Breeds have nothing to do with how many kittens can be born. The typical number for any litter is usually averaged around 4-7. It depends on how many times the female mates when she is in heat.
