Yes. We often assume that when a cat has a litter of kittens there are several but, on occasion the cat will have only one kitten (particularly if the cat is small herself).

How come your kittens try to nurse off of a male cat?

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.

Can a kitten have a kitten?

For the most part, cats are considered mature at around 1 years of age, with the exception of large breeds which are fully mature around 2 or 3 years old. Anything younger is considered a kitten. Cats reach sexual maturity much earlier than 1 year; most kittens are able to reproduce at around 6 months old. So technically, a kitten is indeed able to produce a litter of kittens herself. However, letting a young and not yet mature 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. Kitten mothers have a higher tendency to be terrible at being a parent, due to them being not yet mentally mature enough. Some require constant supervision, others require help with bonding, others abandon their kittens due to not knowing what to do, or reject them altogether. There are instances of young mothers killing their kittens because they do not understand what has happened and have panicked. The likelihood of her needing a vet-assisted delivery is very great. It often costs over $1,000 for an emergency c-section delivery, and if the mother is small or the kittens large, there is a very real chance that the mother may need this. There is also a risk of the kittens being stillborn. If the mother and kittens survive, there is still the rearing of said kittens. You may need to help feed or partially hand-rear the kittens, which require a lot of time and experience. Sometimes, after all the experience, the mother's personality may actually change and may not be the same kitten before being bred from. It could be, of course, that a kitten will be fine in rearing her own kittens, but 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.

Anything after 5 months so get her spayed by that time. A five month old kitten is the equilivent of a 10 year old girl having a baby. Not a good idea for humans or cats.

How do you feed kittens when the mother is gone?

What are some different ways to keep a stubborn kitten off the table and counter?

Putting foil on the table and counter may help deter a kitten from jumping, as most cats do not like the feel of this on their paws. Double-sided sticky tape may work, also. You can try spraying the kitten with water, but this really isn't ideal as all that teaches the kitten is that you, its carer, is punishing it for doing something that comes naturally to the kitten. This won't stop the kitten from jumping; but will make the kitten more sly and will only jump on these places when you are not around. You can try and distract the kitten with a toy whenever you see it wanting to jump. Some kittens may stop wanting to jump onto tables and counters as they grow older, but many do not. Cats and kittens are naturally curious animals and like to be up high, so sometimes the best thing is to make its favourite spots safe to perch on.

How do you help your cat have kittens?

Stay with the mother while she is in labor. It will be uncomfortable. After each kitten is born and the mother has removed the sac, you can cut the umbilical cord if she does not. Remove the afterbirth after each kitten comes out. The mother should also clean each kitten. Should the mother have a large litter, she be become exhausted. If she does not remove the sac around the kitten quickly, you'll have to do it. The kitten should move to the mother's nipples soon after birth. If not move it there. Make sure the mother has all the food she wants before and after birth. Lactating cats need to eat a lot.
