    Hi
    My cat had her first season about 2-3 weeks ago. Over past week she has been digging in places (I think to find a safe place) today she did a playful meow then sprayed on my apples (she has never sprayed inside the house before) I've noticed lumps on her belly there's 4-6 lumps around the nipple areas but not exactly there.
    Could she be pregnant? There is no swelling in her belly and apart from the above she is completly herself she had a cold not long ago so lost her appetite but that' back to normal she eats and drinks well

    Whether she's pregnant or not the best option would be to get her spayed ASAP.

    How old is she? Has she been outside during her heat? Is there any particular reason you think she could be pregnant? - 2 to 3 weeks is too soon for her to start looking for a nest.
    Some cats get enlarged nipples when they are calling (in heat) and also spray at this time too. You really need to speak to your vet and get her spayed as soon as possible.

    Hi
    She is booked in the spayed she' just turned 1. She did go out in heat but not for long she had a Tom cat calling for her and it scared her so we kept her in.
    Only reason I thought she was pregnant was the digging and I didn't know that about nipples in she' in heat that's good to know

    Glad to hear she's booked in to be spayed, it's important she's done as a matter of urgency. Feline pregnancy is 9 weeks, at 2-3 weeks she is still early enough to be spayed even if pregnant.

    If she isn't spayed and she has been out then sadly she probably is. :mad:
