I have a question about my female cat. She's 11 months old and is in heat. She had an appointment to get spayed in November, but my husband lost his job and was out of work for a long time. So, we had to put off her appointment. Hopefully, we'll be able to spay her next month. My question is, she's currently in heat and got outside last night. She was only out for 2 hours and then she finally came to me when I called her. We live in the suburbs and there are cats outside, but I have no idea if they are neutered. My cat NEVER leaves the house so she was probably scared out of her mind. How likely is it, do you think, that she could have gotten pregnant in that short time? Is there anything that would indicate that she mated, or do I just have to wait and see? I'm very worried about this and will feel terrible if she is pregnant. I certainly never expected her to run outside like that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
