Hello all, I've got a problem and was originally going to post it in S.O.S but now I think there may be a new twist to this problem. I had new neighbors move in next door about 6 months ago. They seem like a very nice young couple, they have 2 cats. There male cat started showing up at my house this winter crying, cold and hungry (I have 4 cats and 2 dogs of my own). I didn't know at the time it was their cat. After several conversations with them I found out that they also had a female cat. They said the male cat (who is neutered) just liked to sneak out. I began to feed him every morning because it seemed like they never let him in. I was gone on vacation for a week and when I came back I found out they had been gone too. Their male cat had been out all week and was noticably thinner and they didn't seem to think to much of it. After that I started to let him in my house, I don't think they even notice he's even not around as much. About 6 weeks ago, I began to notice that their other cat, the female was outside all the time (she'd been inside before). I'd see her all the time, hanging around my house, but she was extremely shy and I could never get to close. I stared leaving my garage door ajar and put food in there, so a least if they weren't feeding her she'd have food. Over the last few weeks I have really won her trust and she allows me to pick here up and pet her. I noticed tonight that she was getting a tummy on her, but then I noticed her nipples were larger then normal. I don't know if she is spayed, but I'm wondering if she may be pregnant? I certainly don't want her to be outside all the time if she's pregnant (they do not let her in at all now). She is always hanging out in my yard or garage. I don't want to cause problems with my neighbors, but. . . . well I don't know what to do? How do I tell if she's pregnant or not. Sorry this is such a long post, I'd love to here any advise anyone has.
