Hi! So I own a small animal rescue and someone brought in a cat about a couple days ago they said she was a stray and they heard something so they went outside and found this cat mating, they kept her for about 2 and a half weeks ( not sure why) then brought her to me. I checked her nipples and they were a little pink so I waited till the next day to check them again, and they were ALOT bigger, but I’m still not sure if she is pregnant or not, this picture is a comparison picture of the day I got her vs about 4 days ago. they have grown a little more but not a ton.

She is mated and prob in early pregnancy. The teats pinks up typically on day 21. So you have an exact timetable here.
A spaying at this point is no medical problem at all.

I took her to the vet today to get her vaccinated and schedule a spay, and they said did you know that she is pregnant? I was super surprised because she was acting like she was in heat. She is 4 weeks pregnant😭

Oh no! Now youll have kittens, but really that's not a horrible thing, keep us posted!
I was really hoping she wasn’t, but I also love kittens😂 she is acting like she is looking for a quiet place, do they start nesting this early?

Not usually, it may be the hormones working on her though.
The cutest thing happened today, she had a stuffed elephant that she was cleaning and nursing (not literally) but it’s so cute!

Hi, so she is about 5 weeks and her belly is really starting to pop! But I checked her nipples today and they seem white not really pink anymore is that normal?

I got a photo of her belly today, I didn’t hold her for long just a second. Also her nipples have pinked up a lot today.

Pink or not, the pregnancy will continue. She’s so fluffy it’s hard to tell. .
this is a photo from a week ago, I think I see a difference but I might be insane😂

No, I see a difference. She is pregnant! Prepare for kittens in a few more weeks.....
When should I start keeping her in a room? Right now she has the whole house.
