    There is absolutely no way we can decide when your cat is due from photos, and it's not unknown for pregnant females to apparently come into call.

    All you can do is wait - and there's nothing the vet could do at present.

    If she is pregnant from the first mating she is due on or about the 5th May.

    Keep her in until she is spayed. You don't want her going out and having kittens who knows here, or going out and not coming back and leaving you having to hand-rear kittens, or coming back pregnant again.

    In the meantime iCatCare has some good information about kittening. Read it all including the pages it links to.

    Girls can appear in heat several weeks in as hormones change, they can also continue to mate the entire pregnancy regardless of the amount of kittens.

    She must be just a young kitten herself to have not been spayed yet?

    She should be spayed as a matter of urgency once your vet will do it. In leaving her so long - she should have been spayed by 6 months at the latest - you have increased her risk of breast cancer, she has been at risk of pyometra, and now she is facing the risks of pregnancy, kittening & lactation which while small are nothing like zero. Also 4 is what in humans would be called a 'elderly primigravida' - a woman over 35 having her first baby, which is more potentially more fraught in many ways.

    You are also lucky she hasn't started spraying or urinating around the house when in call.
