You should not think worry about your male on heo to help ham mount your queen. You should think about how to prewent him to breed your baby-cat. She is way too young to have kittens. Separate them and make shure your queen is fully grown before mating her.

The queen is really too young in her first heat! Most wait until the second heat and the cat is closer to a year old. Males get sexually mature as early as six months, but usually around 9 months. I think I responded to a topic on this yesterday.

If you are new to breeding, you need an experienced breeder as a mentor. This is not just mating cats and delivering kittens. There is so much more to this! And as an inexperienced breeder, you need to read up on complications from breeding and delivery and have all the necessary emergency kit available. Kittens deliver breech, queens require C-sections or help with delivery. Kittens who are delivered early and are too small may need immediate vet attention. A female who does not accept her kittens, the kittens need to be fed every two hours. So much can go right, but so much can go wrong.

Kittens need first vaccinations and all should be spayed and neutered before going to new homes.You need a contract between you and the buyer, you need to research all potential owners to make sure your kittens go to great homes. You need to be able to take back any cat that needs rehoming.

If you want to continue breeding and become a reputable breeder, you need to join the cat groups, cat organizations, TICA, etc. Register any litter so the kittens can be individually registered.

But first of all, separate the male and female. Males are usually kept in an enclosure outside due to the fact that they will spray once they become sexually mature and you do not want that in your home. Many breeders do not own studs for that reason and send their queens out to be impregnated.

I'm hoping you thought this out extensively and you know what you are getting into. It's not just about the $$$. This is hard work and most breeders find that they don't come out with much $$$ at the very end.

We only have one breeder who posts with any regularity -- Ontario Bengals. But, please reach out to the breeder of your cats for help. We are happy to offer opinions, but we don't breed and I certainly want you to have the best advice you can.

It is VERY obvious when successful mating occurred. The queen will scream and roll.

7 months old is very young to breed and will likely cause issues with the female as she needs to spend time growing herself too - it will also inhibit the growth of the kittens and they will likely become small.

Males generally take longer to get to sexual maturity - even if they attempt to mount they may not be able to do anything.

Ontario, it is good to have you back. You are the only breeder who currently posts and, as you can see, we have had a lot of questions lately. I'm no breeder, but a lot of this is common sense. Please feel free to offer any assistance you can to these first-time breeders. They truly NEED it!

The sad thing is when these inexperienced breeders go against our advice and breed anyway. A queen is TOO YOUNG to breed the first heat!
