Can a hermaphrodite cat who has had their balls removed, still get pregnant?

If your cat is a hermaphrodite they have both male and female reproductive parts – although his testicles have been removed, there would still be female parts present – if there is a fully functioning uterus and ovaries, then it’s theoretically possible to get pregnant and have kittens.

However, most if not all true hermaphrodites have incomplete reproductive parts and a pregnancy would be extremely rare.

If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.
