“Dear PoPville,

I just moved to a new house and we have a stray cat who hangs around the back yard and the backyard next door. She is very friendly and used to people and has tried multiple times to follow us inside. We can’t take her in because we have a dog who would love to have a cat snack. We had a friend come by the other day to see if he might want to adopt her, and that’s when we realized she’s pregnant. We have no way of knowing how far along she is and I am torn between letting nature take its course since cats are generally good at taking care of themselves and taking her somewhere because I do think that after she has kittens she would be highly adoptable as she is very cute and friendly. She may have even been someone’s pet before.

Any advice PoPville has about which shelters (if any) might be best or any experience others have would be appreciated. Yes, I started feeding her, so I am a bit invested at this point…”
