It would be vary by age...I think 5 months old is young... When cat start into a heat, keep her INSIDE! Or have her get spayed.

Enjoy the kittens! They are tooo CUTE! Any pictures?

too young. kittens needs to be spayed or neutred at least by 6 months. you do not need to breed or have them preggys because kittens would end up more kittens... ppl can't take all of them in... which is why you see so many animals in shelters

Dont let them go outside and let them use the cat litter box for now til they are being spayed or neutured. Thanks you. I hate to see cats or kittens ended up in the shelter or put to sleep. It is not fair for them.

I used to foster a mother with her 5 kittens it was lot of work and all the kittens have a new home but I am not sure about the mother.

When the testicles of the male start to hang, time to have them snipped. Of course, this does NOT apply to humans. :D

>>>The female cat reaches sexual maturity within 6 to 10 months; most veterinarians suggest spaying the female at 5 months, before her first heat period. The male cat usually reaches sexual maturity between 9 and 12 months. <<

I read though,
that while it's rare some female cats can mature earlier than usual so I wouldn't let them out before spaying ..
also it's important to neuter cats too as they do contribute to overpopulation,
even though they don't bring kittens themselves..
