Breeding Cats

Cat Facts

 

The average pregnacy of a cat is 63-66 days.

 

Most cats give birth to a litter of between 1 - 9 kittens. The largest known litter ever produced was 19 kittens, of which 15 survived.

 

On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping. That means a nine year old cat has been awake for only three years of its life.

 

A group of grown cats is called a “clowder".

 

A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 49 km over a short distance.

 

A cat’s nose pad is ridged with a unique pattern, just like the fingerprint of a human.

 

A cat’s heart beats nearly twice as fast as a humans heart, at 110 to 140 beats a minute.

 

Cats spend nearly 1/3 of their waking hours cleaning themselves.

 

Grown cats have 30 teeth. Kittens have about 26 temporary teeth, which they lose when they are about 6 months old.

 

A female cat is called a queen or a molly.
