I'm in serious trouble

I saw this little girl flitting close to a busy road and scooped her up. I haven't been able to look for a scar but she may also I guess be....pregnant. Her body does seem to be weighted near the back (giving her a very odd appearance) but that may not mean anything.
So now she has taken over Billy's room (aka the bathroom). If his room is taken, he can't come inside. Which would be so sad, because except for his mistrust of all other cats he is such a funny, loveable boy and mighty attached to me.
I don't have a solution for this girl. Does anyone?
She is still a bit growly but gives me bony little hipchecks. Her first little poo would break your heart, pencil thin and full of grass.

Badger I could be wrong here but I thought someone posted a picture of a missing kitty that looked like this one? Not 100% sure though? She certainly is a beautiful looking cat? I dont know what to suggest to you? But thank you for caring enought ot pick this little one up off the street!

I've looked back through the lost posts but I can't find her, or on any of the lost/found websites I know. There's a lost tortie, but not in Quebec. This one's coat has every colour in the rainbow and an ash-grey plume tail. She may have been on the lam for only a few weeks, especially if she wasn't skilled at finding food. She is a bag of bones.

Thats too bad! I was hoping it was near you or at least someone looking....It always amazes me how these beautiful cats find themselves homeless?? alot of sick people out there I guess! I imagine all the rescues/spca's are overloaded! Is she friendly with you? I guess she is pretty hungry too! Do you have many rescued kittty's? I am asking because you mentioned she has taken over someone els's spot in the house?

Oh Badger,not another one:sad:although I can sooo understand you.
that she is not preggers,is there not any place you could take her,where she would not be killed?
Of course not before the Badger kitty-kitchen has fattened her up a bit,poor little girl...she's so pretty,looks exhausted.
You are the best

She is so beautiful! she probably would have been killed on a busy road. So nice of you to take her in. I know that vets and pet food stores take cats in for adoption, also even groomers! Maybe you should drive a bit out of your way and discover new places? We, the rescuers are always so desperate to place cats, since we are always full. We have to find other solutions.

Oh Badger :sad: she looks exausted ! I do receive e-mails from the spca , once every 1-2 weeks , asking for foster families for pregnant cats or moms and their litter. I do have some contacts at the spca MTL and Laval. I'll pm you my e-mail so you can update me on the vet visit , if she's pregnant or not. We will see what we can do about this.

It brings tears to my eyes every time I see a post like this - that poor little kitty - but now, thank goodness, she is a lucky kitty to have found you!

She is so beautiful, can't believe somebody is not looking for her. Badger, you are so good to these unfortunate cats!

The vet gave her a good feel-up and felt nothing, so if she is pregnant, it is too early to tell. Vet estimates she is 6-7 months old so it's possible she hasn't even had her first heat. She had her vacs and will be spayed next week.
Her name, for now, is Coco (sorry I'm hopeless at names).

The poor thing. She looks like a sweetie, I have a soft spot for torties.

Glad you picked her up badger, how many do you have now? Didn't you laugh at me when I said I have 4 cats and the one I picked up would make 5...........

A popular phrase comes to mind "The more the merrier!"

Hope she finds a good home soon
