    Are they registered for breeding? Had all DNA tests, HCM scan done?
    Did you not record the mating date?

    Milk comes in any time from a week to not until birth.

    Why don't pets need registering? Both cats would have to have been brought registered active to register the kittens.

    You can't tell if they have the gene that increases the chance of HCM without testing, which is easily done with a check swab. They should have two other tests as well, see this download from Langford.

    What's unfortunate is that they've been bred.
    Bought as pets means not for breeding let alone the health risks taken by not doing the required DNA tests.

    I hope the boy has now been neutered, they can remain fertile for up to 10 weeks so cannot be around your female until she's been done or she'll quickly be pregnant again.
    Mum can be spayed at the same time you get the litter done before adoption.

    Removed as it took the thread off topic and was unfair to do that to the OP

    Thank you for your reply you don’t know a single thing about my cats though neither me. My cats are very healthy cats I think I trust my vet more than random people online. I have papers for my mum cat. It’s my choice if I would like to breed them. I asked a question and have got no reply on my question just abuse. Amen goodbye

    Your vet must be extraordinary to be able to tell cats are clear of tests that require using a DNA swab or a cardiologist scan just by an office visit.

    Papers on mum doesn't mean breeding rights, nor does it mean mating to an unpapered cat is acceptable.

    Welcome to the Internet we’re you ask a question and all of a sudden people think they know your life story just to let you all know my kittens will have multiple vet checks injections micro chip and neutered also there all going to family so they have got loving homes. I ain’t no byb and never will be I love my cats and will always do what’s best
    Keep spreading your hate because it isn’t affecting me or my cats try answering the question I’ve asked instead of creating your own questions. I’m keeping all of them anyway so why does it matter to you. I’ve got money put aside incase my queen needs emergency surgery. My cats are 4 years old they have never had health problems and there just fine last time I ask about anything on here.

    Maybe you should be a vet since you diagnosed my kittens to die in a years time or better yet become a physic.
