Hi everyone so I have a cat who is almost a year old. She went into heat on Jan 12, 2020. Which so happened to be the same day as I went and picked up our new munchkin kitten. I kept her inside but she got out from what I remember she was done being in heat around the 16th of Jan. I'm just not sure if she is pregnant or if she is acting weird because of the new kitten. There are a couple signs to me she is pregnant but could it also be because of the new kitten? The first sign I noticed was how she was acting, she's never been very lovable (she loves the dog more than people) but all of a sudden she is SUPER friendly wanting me to pet her, following me around, even sleeping with me. She has also wanted to eat more, every time I go upstairs she wants me to feed her. Not dry food but wet food. But the strangest thing is she is NOT going outside anymore. I haven't seen her go outside since she got out of heat. And now her and the new kitten are best friends. If I do the calculations from the last day I believe she was in heat it would put her at 18 days which isn't very far along (not even 3 weeks). I'm just wondering what everyone thinks... NOTE: This is her nipples on Jan 28, 2020. I will try and get another pic tonight....

She sounds like she may be pregnant. You’ll know more in a couple of weeks. She needs to stay inside now, and especially after the kittens are born or she’ll get pregnant again right away. Do you plan to spay her after this litter?

I have no issue with her staying inside now but I will make sure she doesn't try to escape. I was going to get her spayed because of the munchkin (I do want to breed her).

I would like to breed my munchkin. Munchkins are very hard to find where I live, I've been waiting for 3 years and I still had to drive over 6 hrs to get her. I've bred them before about 10 years ago.

These are pics of what I believe to be my pregnant cat's nipples yesterday...

I didnt know about the nipple thing but my cat had her kittens about six months ago and the one big red flag for me- was when i pick Auggie up- normally i can use both hands to lift her her holding her chest and lower abdomen.
Pregnant Auuggie will NOT allow it if my hand or arm comes into contact with her abdomen with even minimal pressure!
Any contact with her tummy & she flipps out and jumps out of my arms- sometimes with the equivilant of kitty "***!?" Garbled through meow growls.
I dont know if your cat even lets you hold her but if she lets you pick her up this might help.

Yes she just started not letting her touch her tummy this week. I took her to the vet today and they did an ultrasound she is definitely pregnant. They aren’t sure how far along he said sometime between 30-40 days. He saw at least 5 possibly 7 on the ultrasound. We go back in 2 weeks for an X-ray!!!
