A cat can go into heat from one to six weeks after giving birth. If there's a willing and able male who has access to her, she can get pregnant. Cats are incredible baby machines, which is one reason there is a cat overpopulation problem.

Chibi's right. Its possible for cats to get pregnant again while they are still suckling their current litter. Your best bet is to have Charlie spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned assuming you don't want more kittens. Even when breeders want their cats to have kittens its better to make sure the mother cat has time to get her strength back before letting her get pregnant again.
