It could be one of 2 things:

1. She did have a miscarriage or
2. She resorbed the pregnancy (which just means she absorbed back the fetus)

either way, it's best to have her checked by the vet.

If the cat mated with an unknown or untested male cat, she is ALREADY in danger of various diseases and problems. On top of that, there is apparently something wrong, be it a miscarrage or reabsorbtion of the fetuses. Take her to the vet now, have her checked out. If she is not pregnant have her spayed right away. If she is you could still, and should still have her spayed anyways so she doesn't have the babies, but that is up to you. Keep her STRICTLY indoors at all times until she has her babies and/or is spayed. You should have her tested at some point too to make sure she wasn't exposed to anything when she mated.

More then likely she aborted if 7-8 weeks pregnant. If it was less, then she could have reabsorbed them.

Either way the cat needs to be checked out by the vet and spayed.

Reabsorbed means that the kittens stopped growing inside and the body reabsorbs the little bodies. I don't know how, just know it can happen. But usually its at a very early time in the pregnancy before the bones/body get too big.
