    Cats are pregnant for 57 to 65 days. The should be fed kitten food and be kept indoors only.

    Each one should be kept in her own private room, with a bed, food, water, and litter box – do not use clumping litter, only non-scented regular clay litter. Keep separate or they will move each other’s kittens.

    Here is an article on how to care for a mother cat with kittens.

    DO NOT let them outside until spayed!

    When they are ready they will start nesting behavior, some become more friendly some become less friendly – most cats deliver with no problems but you need to be prepared. Here is an article on How they have kittens

    My cat actually gave birth a couple days ago. Your cat will stay pregnant for about 60-70 days. It may be a problem after 66, but do not worry. Some signs of labor is eating a lot more and showing more affection, such as purring, and cats that are about to go into labor will usually lick their abdomen and *censored* persistently. There is often a discharge that precedes birthing but the mother will lick it away as rapidly as it appears.
