    I took in a unwanted cat in early December.
    The earliest a vet could schedule her to be neautered was beginning of February.
    She was in heat I tried to keep her in but one day I had to call an ambulance for my son and the door was left open for the paramedics so she did get out while in heat that was on the 17th December and she didn't come back until the 18th. There was / is 2 male cats in the area that was lurking and calling for her while she was in heat too so I'm pretty certain she more than likely mated with one if not both male cats.

    I was reading up on possible cat pregnancy signs (today would be day 21 / 22 after the possible mating) and noticed one about cat nipples being more pink / red but honestly I'm not sure what a non pregnant cat nipples are supposed to look like so I've taken a picture in hope someone could help if they look different to 'normal'
    If she is pregnant what do I do?
    thank you for any help.

    Any entire let outside will likely get pregnant

    As she’s only just pregnant you can book her in to be spayed ASAP

    Please speak to your vet so that you can bring the spaying forward. If that is not possible use another vet.

    No vet I have used has more than a weeks wait to spay a cat. Change your vet, or is there more to the wait than meets the eye?

    She can still be safely spayed, find a vet who will do that this week

    Update : she's booked in at a vet out of town on Friday morning :) again thank you all!
    I'm really not a irresponsible owner it was a genuine accident, I wasnt thinking of the cat when the paramedics where coming in and out the house leaving door open to get to my 1 year old son wasn't until we was in hospital did I realise she had ran out and we didn't shut her in a bedroom and I'm really glad I was told she can still be spayed to stop the pregnancy so i really do appreciate it so much!

    Fantastic you have asked the question and taken action before it’s too late.

    Hope she recovers quickly.

    Vet wanted to check her over today before the operation as they said they wouldn't do it if she's half way through.
    They said she's 3-4 weeks and has 2-3 kittens, she's within the time limit thankfully so now all ready for Friday :)

    She really is a lovely cat!
    Makes me even more cross that she was abandoned in the middle of winter, she's only about 8 months old so still very young :(

    Some people are so thoughtless. She's got a good home now, she's safely spayed, hope you bring each other pleasure for many years.
