My 8 month old cat....I'm thinking she is prego but I'm not sure. She is getting a little big in the stomach and she was in heat not too long ago. I have two male cats and I'm thinking the older one got her. She doesn't have anything to do with the two makes if that helps? If she is prego how long does it usually take before she has them and also is there anything that I need to know before she gets any bigger.

Being several months old and around male cats, but not yet spayed!

last summer i rescued an emaciated cat - literally all skin and bone. she was also pregnant, but there was no way of telling except for her swollen nipples. i was feeling around for a scar to see if she had been spayed yet and instead i realized she was about two weeks pregnant. usually swollen nipples is the first sign you'll see.
if she's pregnant, seriously consider having the kittens aborted. w/an estimated 82 million strays in this country alone, it would be the responsible thing to do.

It sure sounds like she's pregnant. If your male cats aren't neutered, It's a pretty safe bet one of them is the father unless she got out. She will be interested in the males every time she comes into heat. I would have her spayed asap.
