false pregnancy

If a unfertile tom mated with a fertile a queen Would she always go into false pregnancy? I ask this because I have a f4c male who is possibly fertile and mated with my jungle cat savannah queen. Now her nipples are getting bigger but she is not (although she has has small litters in the past 2-3 kittens). Could this be a false pregnancy? Is there anyway to tell if it is false pregnancy other than a ultrasound?

It's possible. My F3 girl did not show any obvious signs of pregnancy until a few days before delivery, and she had two babies.

Your vet may also be able to do an x-ray, as well as an ultrasound.

It's too bad the OTC pregnancy kits for humans didn't work on cats, right?

They should be able to see skeleton by x-ray after 5-6 weeks once the calcium starts settling in the bones.
