Cats don't have to be in heat to get pregnant. If they are old enough and there is an intact male around...
That is why it is really important to get a cat fixed prior to allowing it outdoors. Another thing is...a cat can become pregnant as early as a week after giving birth..which is why it is important to keep a mom cat indoors only and away from intact males until she is spayed.
I always like to verify that a cat has been spayed by contacting the original vet. You aren't the only one who has thought the procedure has already been performed and then discovered the cat isn't only intact, it is pregnant.
