Most likely her callous owner put her outside when she was in heat so they could sleep at night without listening to her howls. Once they figured she was pregnant they weren't about to let her back in. Why do the responsible thing after all?



If this one leaves, there will be another one to take her place and the howling will continue as long as the male is not neutered. It has been my experience that the smell of cats attracts strays and there is nothing smellier than un-neutered male urine.
