    Since she is an outside cat she probably pregnant

    If she is allowed even just a little bit of outdoor access and is not fixed, then she is most likely pregnant. Cats are stimulated ovulators, so basically any time they mate with a male, they are at risk of getting pregnant.

    You can have her spayed now even if she is pregnant to avoid kittens. However, I would deifnitely consider checking with shelters about low cost spay/neuter clinics. Many shelters offer these programs for private pet owners and I think they are great! Otherwise, you will constantly be dealing with kittens.
