Has anyone seen a pregnant cat’s nipples pink up at 10 days into pregnancy?

    I will try and keep this short and simple? My female cat’s nipples have started pinking up but she can’t be more than 10/11 days pregnant. I understand this normally happens around 15 days onwards. Has anyone else ever seen a cat pink up earlier than 15 days into pregnancy?

    What breed is she and what date did you have her mated?

    Yes, on occasion. I think for anyone who takes a really good look just prior to the cat being mated/going to stud, it can be relatively easy to spot minor changes well before 21 days post mating.

    That said, some queens can and do show physical changes to their nipples when they're coming into call and with a so-called phantom pregnancy. So whilst pinking up, earlier than 21 days or otherwise, is a reasonable indication of pregnancy, it isn't absolute.

    The typical time to see pink nipples is around 18-21 days, but I've seen them as early as 10-11 days. So yes possible.
