Yes, all mammals have teats all the time. Just like humans have breasts (which is what we call human teats) even when they aren't pregnant or nursing. Males have them too, but they remain undeveloped. When a cat (or human) is pregnant or nursing, the tissue that produces milk will be active and swollen making the teats (or breasts) protrude more and they will be temporarily larger.
