Been there, done that. When the kittens come, the best way to place them in good homes is good pictures.....I'm telling ya! Good pictures!

She sounds gorgeous. And it sounds like she may have already adopted you!

Are you sure she's still preggers and didn't just give birth? Immediately after giving birth, mama cats are VERY affectionate... and wouldn't be hungry, probably just thirsty. Early this summer I went outside and had a feral cat do the same to me -- but she was still all messy, so I knew she had just given birth. We found the kittens and brought them inside and the mama followed. The kittens are ready to give away, and the mama has returned to her feral life outdoors once again. She may just want/need somewhere safe for her babies. You might want to look around for them, or follow the mama and see if you can find some kittens.

We had another feral kitty give birth in our front garden about a month later in the middle of our 115+ heat wave! But I couldn't get that mama inside, so I was stealing her kittens every day at noon to bring them inside, and returning them to the garden when the sun went down. Once they could eat on their own, I just kept them inside... they'll be ready to re-home in a couple weeks.

I would look for babies first. If you don't find any, maybe just make a box into a temporary home and put it out of the way -- under a porch, or behind some bushes, or somewhere she'll feel hidden and protected. If she is a feral, she'll probably go on her way once she's done nursing her babies. Or maybe not. She may have adopted you for good


Is it hard to find people who want kittens?
I hope she's not pregnant...but she does have a tight round belly.
Her nips seem more exposed than they should be...but not full.

As I said, been there and done that. I have never found it hard to find homes for kittens, as long as you have super cute pictures, which are not hard to get with healthy kittens, and you use a few good pet friendly outlets.

No-easy-good pics like someone said-do home visits to make sure they are loving with clean safe environments and they connect. Start early-5 weeks-and take reservations-salesmanship!

The dogs are in the house, but have free run of the yard.
They don't seen to know about the cat yet.


How do you think your dogs would react?

Still: keep her, love her, give her a great life and she'll do the same for you.

Cats are a whole different type of pet.


The dogs are both inbred rescue, small breeds (Brothers).
They probably would not hurt the cat once they got to know it.

Keeeeep her!

Cool. I had a cat that stood up to a collie once; my dad's cat, while maintain its distance, put his large dog in check, as well. Sounds like they will do just fine.

That cat will stand her ground, and you'll have a great pet family.

Well, everyone above has told you and I agree if you think you could become a 'cat person'.
My black cat adopted us and she is the most lovable kitty I've ever had. It's almost as if she thanks us everyday for letting her in.
Ironically, today is Black Cat Appreciation Day!
Good luck!

It's never been hard for me to find new homes for kittens. For adult cats, it's usually more difficult, but not for kittens. These days, it's recommended that you ask for a "re-homing fee" to make sure they aren't taken by dog fighters as bait, usually $25 to $50 is suggested. I ask for $35 and give them a cardboard carrier, some food, and some toys with the kitten. I also cut up the towel that they've been using for bedding and throw in as well to give the kittens something familiar and comforting to take with them. It helps the kitten settle into their new home.


I hope she's not pregnant...but she does have a tight round belly.

If her belly is round and tight, then she's probably still pregnant. Does she seem malnourished and/or dehydrated? You can do the "pinch" test for dehydration: "If you take a pinch of skin over the cat's shoulders and pull up gently, the skin should snap back into place when released. As the cat gets more dehydrated, the skin goes back in place more and more slowly. If the pinch of skin stays up (the "tent"), it is a sign of severe dehydration." If not, then she may have a home nearby and she's just especially friendly, which would explain why she didn't eat the tuna you put out.

Aaww she has chosen you maybe for a reason..you know my belief is that our beloved animal companions be they dog,cat,wolf,parrot,crow.ferret,whatever..as long as you had a very close bond,they follow us from incarnation to incarnation. Not necessarily in the form of the same species you knew them as then,when the bond first started. Well that's what i believe anyway

If she looks that good, she may have gotten lost from her family....or, and I know it's cruel to think, her family may have dumped her, especially if she got pregnant.

Here are the things you can do:

1) Go to your local vet or SPCA and have them see if she's been chipped. If she has, it will have the info of her owners.

2) No chip? Put up flyers saying that you've found a cat.

3) Look up pet rescue groups in your area. They can take the cat off your hands for you and make sure she ends up with either a good foster pet family or a new family, and not the pound where she might be put down.

4) Accept the fact that she chose you. Yes, cats choose their owners for the most part. I have 5. 2 of them I rescued while kits, 1 my ex-wife didn't want anymore, and 2 more that she gave birth to. If she is preggers, prepare to be delighted with kittens, but also realize you're going to have your hands full with them until you can find homes for them.

And on that note: PLEASE do NOT dump the kittens somewhere. The good news is cats tend to have litters that average only 4 kittens or so (unlike dogs that can have 8 to 9 pups). Kittens are cute and people tend to fall in love with them easily. When they are finally ready to go to homes, offer them for free. Set up a place with them in a box so people can see them. Buy a few small bags of kitten chow and put up a sign that says: "Free Kittens! Free Bag of Food With Kitten!"

Or again, enlist the help of a rescue group to find homes for the kits.

If you decide to keep moma GET HER FIXED! Do NOT think that you'll be able to keep her safe inside away from Toms while she is in heat. You'd be amazed at how determined she will be to get out and get preggers again. Having female cats spayed is normally pretty cheap. It will be a load off your mind too if you decide to keep her.

I wanted to show you my adopted kitty!

She's looking deep into your eyes and asking you to 'please help her cousin" LOL

Keep the cat. Mine's a Mets fan. ;p Funny, mine also has a pink color with the blue rabies tag. HAHA Mines also a rescue, someone dumped him in parking lot at 3 weeks old, and these little boys found him but didn't know how or what to treat his eyes. He had green puss coming out of his eyes when he was baby. He's all better now. I also got him fixed. His nipples are also showing. So, that could be normal.
