HI and welcome!!:) Thanks for taking in the stray kitty! The best and kindest thing would be to have her spayed right now.

Strays are often very depleted and malnourished and giving birth and nursing a litter is extremely hard for them. Kittens born to these mothers can have problems too.

Sounds like your kitty is very smart too, she chose the right family to call her own.

Thank you, and I'm sure she will be thanking you many times over!

hey everyone thanks for all your replies,im taking kitty vets first thing in the morning (mon) and will let you know how she gets on,hopefully shes not pregnant but if she is i'll just have to deal with it and keep them! not really my husband wouldn't be too happy,he's gone away for the weekend and doesn't even know about kitty,he'll get a shock when he comes home tonight! no he'll be fine i've got him wrapped round my little finger!! :p Kitty seems to have settled in really well shes not stopped purrring and wants fussing all the time i think shes just happy to be safe and warm,bless her. Does anyone know how long i should leave her in for?
thanks nice meeting you all :grouphug:

I would keep her inside for good. The outside world can be very rough and once she is spayed she should be quite content to purr in a warm cozy spot next to you and your family. With a litter box, food & water and plenty love life will be just grand for her.

I agree with Karin,she will be much safer being an indoor cat,she might not even want to go outside again after her experience.
I don't know about the UK,but here in Canada a lot of cats are kept indoors all the time and live long happy lives.
My own 3 cats love to go outside,but they only go out with me and I make sure they do not jump the fence,I have a big backyard and they seem perfectly content just staying there with me.
Lets hope she's not pregnant!!

Keeley,thank's for the update!! That's very good news.. :thumbs up
I've only ever had one female cat and she was spayed as a kitten,why does the vet want to wait another 4 weeks?? Not that it matters too much,as long as she is kept in-doors..
We love to see a pic of her... :)

The vet wants to see if she comes into season again,they come into season every 3/4 weeks,she said she could be miscarrying but doesnt think so,so ive got to keep an eye on the bleeding,because shes stray we dont know if shes been spayed or not,so this i suppose is the only way we will find out. :pawprint:
