How Many Kittens are in a Litter?

The number of kittens in a litter often varies depending on the breed of the cat and possibly the age. Litters will vary anywhere between 1 and 8 kittens, so in fairness the ‘average’ would be 3 to 5 kittens. If this is important to the cat owner often the veterinarian can do an ultrasound and get a good idea for you.
