Non-classical quantum states have been applied more and more deeply in quantum communication and quantum computation. By using the time evolution theory and the nonlinearlity of opto-mechanical system, new quantum states can be prepared in the opto-mechanical system which is composed of an N-headed cat state of photonic mode and a number state of mechanical mode. The distribution of the Wigner function (WF) of the mechanical mode exhibits the superposition of several WF wave packets of displaced number states. And it is interesting to find that the parameter N affects the wave-packet numbers of displaced number states in phase space for mechanical mode and the shape of the WF wave packets for photonic mode. The nonclassical properties are investigated through the WF and the negative part volume of WF. An interesting result is that the nonclassicality increases (decreases) with the parameter N for mechanical (photonic) mode. And for the initial state of larger value of parameter N, the increment of the nonclassicality for mechanical (or photonic) mode is increasing more with parameter k (or α). Furthermore the parameter N also affects the entanglement degree between the photonic mode and the mechanical mode.
