Javanna....cats do not need to be in heat to get pregnant. As long as there is an intact male around and they are above the age of 4 months, they can become pregnant at any time because they are induced ovulators. This is why it is so critical to get your female spayed as soon as possible.
I read your other thread in the behavior section. How old are your two cats?? I'm glad you currently have them seperated.
I would still go ahead and get her spayed now. Especially if your two cats are related, an accidental pregnancy could result in genetic issues.
