Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. Typically cats will come back into heat 1-2 months after giving birth. Some may do so in as little as 1 week, though. It is possible for them to have 5 litters a year. Gestation period is usually anywhere from 50-70 days, with 62-64 days being average. I would get her to a vet to get spayed ASAP. Even a low cost spay and neuter clinic will do. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
