Well, at meeting she appeared to be fine, but less then 1-2 weeks later I noticed she was getting a little large in the belly LOL. She is pregnant, i have had kittens and cats all of my life but never a MOMMA. Need Help Please!!!
What a lucky cat! I would take her to a vet. If she is early on in the pregnancy, I would recommend spaying. It is huge responsibility to have the kittens and find them good homes. I say this from experience. I've done both - teminated strays' pregnancies and let a delivery happen. (That was only because I didn't have time to have the spay. My vet would do it at any time in the pregnancy.) You may think you will be able to give the kittens "to anywhere" but you may (and should) become attacted and too concerned for their well being and feel the need to place them yourself. That is difficult.
Anyway, take her to the vet asap. When I first found my sweet, affectionate, Ashton, the first vet he went to diagnosed him as a pregnant female. The day of the surgery, the other vet in the office diagnosed him as a neutered male with a diaphamatic hernia from being abused. His liver and kidneys were so displaced, it looked and felt like a pregnancy. The odds are that you are right and your girl is pregnant, but it would be good to have her overall health checked out.
Thanks for taking in this lucky girl!
