Is she pregnant? Or just in heat? She needs to be spayed a.s.a.p.

Agreed. If I'm reading correctly, the female is in heat, can't go outside, and is crying incessantly, but in the past was allowed outdoors to mate whenever she was in heat?

If this is in fact the case, the cat needs to be spayed immediately to prevent further litters...if she's been allowed to breed indiscriminately and often, it will shorten her life, and could make her more susceptible to many contagious diseases. Once you spay her, she will no longer go into heat, cry all night, get pregnant, or have kittens. It's the responsible thing to do, to prevent more unwanted kittens from being born to possibly unhealthy parents.

Amended: if, in fact, the cat is 2 months into gestation, she should be close to droping the kittens. Has she had a vet check to make sure that she is healthy (does not have FIV or FeLV) and that the pregnancy is free from complications? If not, that's your next step. ASAP (as soon as possible).

See a vet to make sure that she does not have any diseases and that the delivery is not going to endanger her health. How many litters has she had in the past, and how old is she?

Get her to a vet for a checkup as soon as possible (like tomorrow). She may be having difficulties that are beyond the scope of internet advice. She is pretty far along, and has had 3 litters in less than three years, which is hard on her body. She needs serious vet attention and an appointment to be spayed as soon as possible after the kittens come. Also, it is very important that she does NOT go outside after the kittens are born, as she can go into heat almost immediately and mate again, even before the kittens are done nursing.

Also, ask the vet to ckeck her for FIV and FeLV, as they are diseases that could be passed to the kittens, and that will mean immediate euthanasia if the kittens go to a shelter...also, if the mother has either disease, she will need to be kept strictly indoors for the rest of her life to prevent spreading the disease to other cats that she might come in contact with, and she will need special care and regular vet attention.

But the vet call is the first priority. Get her checked out immediately, keep her strictly indoors, with no access to male cats, and have her spayed as soon as possible.
