A small amount of bleeding ("spotting") can arise at any time during a cat's gestation period and most often isn't cause for alarm. It's most likely arising from the engorged cervix rather than from placental sites in the uterus. To make sure that her pregnancy is healthy, her vet can perform an ultrasound of your cat's genital tract assessing fetal health. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
