Two Month Old Kittens Nursing Again

I have a female cat that is an outside cat and she has four two month old kittens. The kittens have been weaned, but now all of a sudden they've all started nursing off her again. Is this normal or is she pregnant again? My husband said he caught her hooked up to a stray male a couple of weeks ago.

Kittens are usually weaned between 8-10 weeks of age, so this is normal behavior.

It is possible they are just "comfort nursing". This is like when kittens suck on a blanket. But these guys still have mom. It is very common at this age. Moms milk is probably dried up. Sounds like it time to have Mom cat spayed. You have a narrow window to get this done before she is heavily pregnant again. Check with your local humane society and cat rescue groups. They can help with the cost and help you find homes for the kittens. Be sure you are dealing with a "no kill" shelter. If you can spend a little time each day with the kittens so they trust humans and will become good pets for someone.
