How it WorksEdit
Most of the time when cats mate, they don't know each other and don't like them.The male walks toward the female, and often the female will hiss to signal to get away. The male crawls on top of the female and squeezes his legs together. The female, on the bottom will shift her paws and sometimes turn over.The male grabs her by the scruff and licks her ears.Then, after a few minutes the female feels pain so she hisses and scares away the male. The male will still want to do it and sometimes tries to crawl back on, but the female attacks him or runs away if he does.
After the mating, the female will roll around, clean herself in unusual places and twist. This helps get the sperm inside her body to make babies(kittens). Only if a cat successfully mates, she becomes pregnant.
