Hi, I have a full white female cat (with strands of black hair) who seem to have mated with my male tabby who looks kind of bengal (by that i mean hes skinny and muscly)
The reason why I thinl she's pregnant is because her nipples seem pinked up

I just want to know what coat color combinations are possible if my female cat really is pregnant and bore kittens
Is it possible to have grey white kitten or full white female kitten?

About half will be white. The other half depends on what colour the girl is under the white, and what kind of tabby your boy is. Will also depend on the genes they’re carrying but not expressing.

That's correct but it also depends on if she has 2 copies of the white gene or just one. If she has 2, all the kittens will be white. If just 1, then about half will be white.

Are there plans to have the parents spayed/neutered soon? I'd recommend having the male neutered before the female gives birth, because cats can get pregnant again very soon after giving birth but it's very hard on a female to have pregnancies that close together. If he isn't neutered by then you'll have to make plans to keep them separated.

I agree the male needs neutering now. The female needs spaying when the kittens are 6-8 weeks old. Do you need help finding a low-cost spay / neuter clinic?

Is this the same cat that had a cloudy eye earlier? Has she seen the vet about that?

Yes shes the same cat but fortunately eye resolved on its own and she's fully recovered now and the eye that used to be cloudy is as clear as the other

Thanks but I will go to a local vet

She looks pregnant and if you saw them mating then chances are real good that she is. Cats are very prolific and successful breeders.

In my experience "pinking up" isn't really a very reliable sign one way or another. Some cats never pink up even if they are pregnant, other cats pink up after mating when they are not actually pregnant. Some cats also pink up when they are in heat, or due to other hormonal changes in the cycle.

If you want to know for sure if a cat is pregnant,
  • ultrasound is an effective method of diagnosis from 3 weeks gestation (21 days)
  • x-ray is an effective method of diagnosis from 7 weeks gestation
  • you can also just wait to see if she has kittens at 9-10 weeks gestation
