Kitten being very frisky

Hi! I currently have 2 kittens, a male and female that are comng up to 4 months of age. The male keeps biting the females neck gently, and she goes very still when he does this. He then lies on top of her, in a way i imagine he would if he was mating with her. But I thought he was too young for this at the moment. If my female cat becomes pregnant, will it be dangerous because she is very small, still a kitten. I would like them to maybe have one litter before being neutered and spayed, but when will she be old enough?

This is normal behavior, but don't delay having your cats fixed, because they could be sexually mature any day know. You're well aware a pregnancy at this age is inadvisable due to serious health consequences. Please reconsider your desire to have a litter. There is no possible reason in favor of it, and too many against for me to go into right now.

Please get them both booked in to be neutered ASAP, and please don't let them have kittens - they are just babies themselves

jennie its unlikly your girl is old enough to get pregnant but not impossible! and your boy is certainly old enough!

a very dear friend of mine (a bengal breeder) has been overrun with kittens as her new stud got all her girls pregnant within 1 week of arriving at 16 weeks old!

so now she has 39 kittens!!!!! - mistakes do happen and she was of the belief that toms took til about 6-7months to be mature. how wrong was she!
