We have been feeding a stray for about 8 months now and she turned up pregnant last week. I first noticed then when picking her up. Her nipples were enlarged and pink when I looked. I took her to my vet and he said that she was too far along to spay so we have taken her into our home and our kitty family. After she has weaned her kittens she will be promptly spayed. We have 3 other kitties (kept separately and all spay/neutered). We have called the pregnant kitty Butterball ever since she started coming by our house. She is a black and white tuxedo cat with medium hair. The vet said she looks to be about 1-2 years old and in pretty good health from what he could tell (she also didn't have fleas or earmites which surprised me). I will take a few pics of her and post them soon. The vet said to expect her kittens in the next 2 weeks. This is my first time having a pregnant pet so this is all new to me. I plan on doing some reasearch on what to expect. This site is going to help me out a lot!
