Breeding from your cat
A female cat (queen) is capable of producing several litters of kittens every year throughout her life. If you don’t want to take on a litter of kittens, or the responsibility of finding good homes for them, you should have your queen neutered. Keeping an un-neutered queen indoors is not always a practical solution: a calling queen may keep you and your neighbours awake and will do her best to escape at every opportunity. There is also a risk of infection developing in your cat's uterus (called a pyometra) if she is neither neutered or bred from and cancer of the mammary gland (breast cancer) is more common in un-neutered cats. If you do decide to breed from your cat, this can be a very rewarding process, but there are various things to consider to ensure that both mother and kittens are strong and healthy.
