Q. My cat had kittens 5 weeks ago..she has since snuck outside and her stomach is getting big..could she be pregnant?

A. Unfortunately this is a possibility, cats can get pregnant pretty much right after they gave birth.
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Potentially yes. Some cats actually return to their heat cycles very quickly after giving birth. Depending on her natural cycle, your cat could theoretically get pregnant with a new litter anywhere from 48 hours to two weeks after giving birth to her last one.
