Hi, it's nice to meet you. I would say it is a definite possibility, as it seems she is starting to nest and it looks like she is pinking up a bit, though it may be a little on the early side to tell. It may take a bit longer for a vet confirmation. I would be on the safe side and go ahead with a pregnancy diet. The extra nutrition couldn't hurt.

Is she a Persian? As you probably already know, they don't always look waddling huge like many DSH cats. Poor Marble (DSH) looked like she was about to pop with what we believed to be her first litter. My Persian, who we believed to be unable to have kittens due to a tragic injury, had a surprise litter. We didn't even know she was pregnant.

You may need to wait a little longer for clearer signs. It's usually closer to 3 weeks when the nipples start to pink up. Have you seen any more changes in the last week?

Nipples dont confirm much as yet, but her secondary behavior hints she may be preg yes. As said above, you must wait more to be reasonably sure.

White is very dominant and may cover other colors. If parents arent homozygot for white; you can easily get some other pattern or color in Some kittens.
