Answer
Hi Tumaree,

It does sound like she is pregnant. A cat can go into heat right after she stops nursing her kits. And with a bunch of males around I would say there is a good chance that she is pregnant. You can contact your local cat rescue. They will spay her if she is not too far along if you can't have any kittens. If you can have the kits here are a couple of links that give some great info on what to expect. And what you need to do for her during her pregnancy. Good luck and take care.

Ciao, Karen
