5 months.
Call the vet to schedule spaying/neutering appointments.
PS: males don't go into heat, but can reproduce at ANY time after 5 months [ if not 'fixed' ]

They can start as early as 6 months. A female that gets pregnant before 1 year old is not prepared physically & mentally for pregnancy and mothering. It can be dangerous for her and the kittens. Have both your kittens fixed at about 4 months.

Cats can begin to mate after they go into heat which begins after they turn 6 months, sometimes earlier. Cats are called 'induced ovulators'. That means the physical act of mating is what causes their ovaries to release the eggs... As soon as they go into heat, they're amenable to mating, which means by the time you realize your cat is in heat it may be too late.
