A female cat usually develops hormones around the age of six months and therefore is able to have kittens. However, at 6 months old, the cat is still a kitten herself, so letting her breed will severely endanger her and the unborn kittens lives, as both mother and litter need a lot of energy to grow and develop in a healthy manner.
