Do male cats get along with kittens?

Do male cats get along with kittens?

Unless your cat is used for breeding, all cats should be neutered to prevent litters of unwanted kittens. Furthermore, neutered cats are much more likely to get along with each other because there are no circulating sexual hormones.

Can two male cats have kittens?

Two males who are raised together will be attached at the hip. If you currently have an adult male, you should be able to bring in a male kitten without any trouble. Keep in mind, however, that there are some cats — male and female — who will not tolerate any others cats and need to be “only children!”

Can you have two male cats and two female cats?

Considerations. At the end of the day, no “yes” or “no” answer is in place for whether two male cats will get along better than two female cats. After all, just like people, all felines are separate individuals with distinct temperaments. You may find that two queens get along famously and are inseparable — aww.

How long does it take for kittens to see each other?

With kittens I’ve found that just a few days is enough, and with older cats I begin letting them see each other within five or six days. Sometimes I’ll bring the first cat into the room and let them see and sniff each other, other times I just open the door for a few minutes at a time. It really depends on the personalities of your cats.

Where did my only child Cat live all his life?

He lived as a single/only child cat all that time, with about a month of his life spent under the same roof as another cat, when we were living at my mother’s while we were getting ready to head off to the UK.

Can two male cats live in peace in one home?

I’ve had 2 male cats live in peace in the past. But one was willing to be submissive to the other. The 2 neutered males I have now are often in conflict. But it is not very serious as they don’t hurt each other. They get along most of the time and can often be found napping on the same bed, but not cuddling.

What happens if you have a male cat and female cat?

If you have an intact male cat, he will go looking for girlfriends, and he will get into fights, which can wind up with one of the cats dead or nearly dead. Plus you will wind up with lots of kittens, and if a cat is having kittens twice a year, it will take a toll on her health.

When does a female kitten reach sexual maturity?

Age and Time of Sexual Maturity. Female kittens reach sexual maturity anywhere from 3 1/2 to 12 months of age, with the typical range being 5 to 9 months. Male kittens generally reach sexual maturity at 9 to 12 months.

Can you have more than one male cat?

Seems like a lot of people here have several male cats. Maybe it depends on what age they were when they were neutered. Or maybe it is all due to temperament or personality. Neither of my boys will allow the other to be dominant. And they are very jealous of each other.

How big should a male cat be before puberty?

Cats also generally achieve a minimum body weight before puberty kicks in. It’s usually around five to six pounds for females and seven to eight pounds for males. Males can perform throughout the year if there’s a receptive female in reach.
