I had a very similar situation with a neighbor one time. She moved in with mama cat and two siblings. Within eight months there were over 50 cats in that apartment. They all appeared to be okay but sadly things did not end well.

I imagine the kittens will be fine.

I don't like this thought at all and I personally couldnt do it - but - if you are worried - you could get your queen spayed now while she is pregnant. She would abort the kittens of course but its an option.

If you decide to let the pregnancy continue make sure your little lady is spayed as soon as she has stopped feeding them to stop her from getting pregnant again.

And of course neuter the Tom too ;)

There is financial help/ cheap schemes available if money is tight.

well, the landlord and the health department got involved. She got evicted, many of the toms scattered when the crap hit the fan, some got dumped at the 24hr. emergency vet clinic. I don't know what happened to many of them. As a cat lover it was probably the most heartbreaking situation I've had to witness, especially since I railed the girl from day one about the situation. Last I heard, she was in prison. It took over a year before that apartment was rentable again.

:cry:

the male tom who started it all, Bad Boy was his name, stowed away in an elderly neighbors apartment and attacked him one night while he was getting into bed. His hand swelled up like a football and he had to be hospitalized. After that, Bad Boy kept breaking in to yet another neighbors apartment and attacking them and I think they got rid of him somehow.

My God oh how I hated that cat.

Get the son fixed now, before she gives birth so you don't have to worry about it if she goes into heat again quickly.

unfortunately it's too late to abort, If it was earlier I would have said to go for the spay. Just make sure you save up money to raise these guys especially if the other litter she had was recently. poor thing having litters so close together, that worries me more than the in breeding. i know of an irresponsible owner who allowed her dog to get pregnant twice in a row, first litter was normal (and she dumped them into a shelter) and the second litter consisted of dogs half the size, who were blind, missing teeth and cannot grow hair. My friend was breeding her cat (I vould not for the life of me talk her out of it) and the mother got pregnant a few days after dilivering a bunch of kittens. the next litter consisted of one kitten who was huge, got stuck in the canal and was finally birthed dead, as sad as it was I was almost glad that a whole other litter was not brought into the world for no reason, plus it's what finally got them to spay her. I do hope everything turns out alright though, it stinks that she has been bred (at all!) but I am glad you are going to spay her once the kittens are weaned. I agree, neuter the male now.

Here is a list of low cost spay/ neuter organizations in the US, Canada, and parts of Europe:

There are so many resources in the Rules, Resources, and Remedies section of the Sticky Forum.

I would get the male cat neutered immediately, and keep the female in the house, even while she's still nursing. She can get pregnant within days of giving birth. She can be spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned. Good luck.

Three weeks left in a pregnancy is not too late for abortion. Many vets will do it even the day before the cat is due. Penny was done a week before she was due. :D

Get them both fixed it prevents not only kittens but health issues as well and that oh so lovely thing called spraying. :evil:

I suggest you get your male neutered now. As far as spaying the momma cat, that's your choice. Now, or after the kittens are weaned.
