At 3 weeks after mating, you'll see where her nipples are pink and enlarged.

The chances are that she's pregnant. I suggest you neuter your male cat as soon as possible and spay your cat after she delivers.

It's best to monitor your cat's behavior and health, and consider a vet appointment to be sure if she is pregnant. It's also important to have your cat spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the future.

I've felt her belly it's only been 16 days and it's hard but obviously she won't start showing yet is it normal to be hard ? I've seen her nipples some of them are sticking and some are really small not sure if it's normal with female cats ?

That, I don't know. Of course, areas of her stomach are normally hard to the touch. Be very gentle when touching her belly and avoid pressing on her.

Yes, it's normal for females to have a couple of nipples that are smaller than the others. These usually don't produce milk.

A vet can tell you if she's pregnant or not at 18 days.

I strongly recommend taking her to the vet for a pregnancy and health check. Don't guess or it could really cost her.

And get both of them neutered as soon as you can, too.
