How Long are Cats Pregnant

How Long are Cats Pregnant

How long are cats pregnant? The answer depends on the type of cat. Here is a graph showing the domestic cat and some wildcats, medium and large and the differences in length of pregnancy:

And here is the same information presented in the form of a table:
CatAve. Length of Pregnancy (days)
Domestic cat63
Scottish Wildcat65
Serval74
Cheetah92.5
Clouded leopard93
Leopard101
Snow Leopard101.5
Tiger102
Lion108

Although the length of pregnancy differs between cats and particularly between domestic and wild cat the style of mating is all very similar including the male’s teeth being sunk into the neck of the female to “sedate” her for a short while. See Cats Mating.
