Cat pregnancies tend to last around 65 days, or just over two months. There are a number of things you should do and expect during this time.

Do not be surprised if your pregnant cat starts to urinate and sleep more often than she did before she was pregnant. This is completely normal and is nothing to worry about. It does mean that you should clean out your cat's litter box more often, in order to maintain good health and hygiene for your pregnant cat.

Your cat will also begin to eat more - by the time she is reaching the end of her pregnancy, she will be eating around twice as much as she did before pregnancy. The solution is not simply to increase the portion sizes of your cat's meals - you also need to ensure that your cat is getting enough of the right nutrition. Increased amounts of protein and calcium are needed during pregnancy to help your cat support healthy life inside her. A good way to ensure that your cat is getting the right nutrients during pregnancy is by adding supplements to her food, or buying cat food which is specially designed for pregnant cats - a number of large brands offer this kind of product. An alternative is to mix kitten food with your cat food, as kitten food contains the right concoction of vitamins and minerals that your cat needs during pregnancy.

You should also keep your pregnant cat inside the house and away from other cats. Even if you own a number of pet cats that get on well with one another, a pregnant cat enjoys being left alone, so try to keep her away from your other cats.

In addition, you should prepare for the birth at least a week before your litter is due. You should make up a nest for your cat to give birth in, and read up on the process of a cat giving birth to make sure you understand what is happening - and what could go wrong.

If you have any queries at all regarding the health of your cat during its pregnancy, do not hesitate to contact your vet.

The normal gestation in felines is 54-74 days--this is timed from the first or last breeding.  Cats can be bred by multiple males each heat cycle.  Kittens in the same litter may have different fathers.  The average gestational length is 63-67 days with a mean of 65 days.
Have an x-ray done of the cat to estimate the number of kittens so you can make sure there are no surprises when she has the litter.

They are pregnant for about 8 to 10 weeks and once the kittens are born you are two let mother take care of them for about 6 to seven weeks then you should start them on soft food wait about a week and start them on hard food it is healthier for their teeth>

It's generally about 10 weeks. When they are born, their eyes won't open, and they will stay with their mother feeding from her, for about 6 weeks, and then about that time you can start them on soft food for a few days, and then introduce the hard foods, which are better for their teeth. If you need more help, please don't be afraid to ask me o.k., just send me a shout. Hope this helps, good luck to you.

She will most definitely look thinner, but with a lot of fur, I can see where you would think that it would be hard to tell. But, when she goes into labor, she will pace and look for somewhere to nest and have the kittens. Keep an eye on her o.k. I hope this helps you out.

A cat usually stays pregnant for around 2 months maybe a bit longer so keep her hydrated and give her more calcium than usual to help her in the delivery and feed her kitten food mixed in with her adult food that also might help with her delivery
