Hi all, a stray kitten (3-5 months old) wandered into our compound and has been an outdoor cat ever since. Most of the cats in our neighborhood are either fixed or antisocial and she was still quite young so I wasn't worried about any accidental pregnancies. However today a male cat showed interest in her and followed her back to our compound and has been restless and constantly meowing. My kitten is not in heat or interested in him (avoiding, dodging butt sniffs) but I still wonder if it's possible that he could force her to mate eg. by pinning her down etc. I would bring her inside for peace of mind but everyone in my family except for me is allergic, and there are no spare rooms for her. I'm planning to make an spay appt soon but I just wanted to know if it's still safe to leave her outside.
