All about cats

What age cats start mating

Female cats are at an advantage in mating before puberty. They can have sex with males of any age.

Female cats who are younger than 6 months can mate with any male. Sometimes they can mate with males as old as 8 years.

The opposite is true for male cats. They can only mate with females who are older than 6 months.

If a cat's first vaginal orgasm occurs before 6 months of age, and if the first mating in the same breeding season is with a male of the same age, then the cat's first conception is likely to be a litter of kittens.

From the age of 6 months to the age of 12 months, it is possible that a female cat may have multiple mating in a single season.

If a female cat is mated to a male of her own age, then her first conception is likely to be a litter of kittens.

A female cat who is not mated during the breeding season will be under a higher level of stress which can affect her health and ability to conceive.

The age of a cat at the time of conception is the only thing that can be relied upon to determine whether a female cat is fertile or infertile.

A cat is fertile if she is mated to a male of a younger or older age.
