Well, I'm taking the kittens to the vet when they are a month old so they can get dewormed so I will go ahead and take the mama too.

I'm pretty positive that she wasn't in heat during the couple days that the male had access to her. I kept a close eye on them. Whenever the male went near her she would either ignore him or threaten him(hissing or batting at him) so my hopes are high that she is NOT pregnant.
Also, I would not do an abort/spay because, having just had kittens, I would consider that too much of a risk. Plus, I don't think it's right to abort them.
I am extremely pro-life when it comes to humans!!! Sooo...in the same respect, when it comes to animals, a life is a life, and I do not think that we should be so heartless with them. Would you kill a newborn kitten on purpose??? If not, then why would you kill an unborn one??? What's the difference. Does is suddenly become a kitten after a certain number of days in the womb or what? A kitten is a kitten, born or unborn, in the womb or out. (Same argument goes for babies. A baby is a baby, in the wobm or out.Don't get me started on abortion with humans though because I will get all fired up and won't stop. Plus, I don't want to start an arguement.)
I understand that if she WERE pregnant that it would be a threat to the mama's life, but I am willing to take that chance because, even though it is dangerous, cats give birth all the time under similar and sometimes even worse circumstances and still manage to survive.
Anyways....on that subject, that's all I have to say and will say so please do not post telling me how bad it is to let a cat get pregnant that early after giving birth and how I ought to get an abortion if she IS pregnant. I don't want to start this into an argument. I'm just wanting to find out if my cat could possibly be pregnant and if there are any ways that I could tell.
