I think my cat is pregnant

I think my cat is pregnant, she is normally very hyper, but has calmed down & has become very loving. She also loves spending time outside no matter wot the weather, but now she has been spending a lot of time indoors. She is eating a lot more & also calling out for attention a lot more than usal.
Her belly is a little bit bigger but her nipples havent changed (ie got bigger)
Is she pregnant?

I can't comment on the pregnancy issue, but if she goes outside, you should really get her spayed.

I've never had a pregnant cat either, but think you should take her in to see a vet. This way if she is pregnant she'll get proper care and you'll get advice on what to do for her and if she's not you can have her spayed. Good luck!

Just so you are aware, it's called "spayed" not "sprayed"
I hope you will take the time to raise these kittens INSIDE with the love and attention they deserve and make sure they stay with their mother until 10-12 weeks old and not let them go at 6, 7 and 8 weeks old like many people in your situation do. Raising kittens is a lot of hard work. There are others here that can tell you everything it entails and the hardships you endure along the way.

If your cat is already pregnant, what's done is done and you can't do much about that now, but be responsible and take your cat to the vet for a check up and advice on how to care for her and her kittens when they arrive. You must also have your cat spayed very soon after having the kittens as cats can get pregnant again very soon after having a litter.

If your cat is not pregnant, please have her spayed, there are already shelters flooded with kittens and many who get euthanized each year because they don't find homes. There is no reason to contribute to that problem and it's likely that you won't get support here on this forum, if you intend to have a litter of kittens fathered by some Tom cat purposefully before spaying your cat. Not to mention the fact that these potential kittens could be born diseased and sick since your cat would be potentially mating with random unknown outdoor cats.

I don't think you got a hostile response, just an honest one.
We promote responsible pet ownership here and *most* of us feel that leaving a cat outside that is not spayed or neutered is irresponsible and dangerous for your cat.

we dont leave her outside she goes outside when she wants to. We love our cat very much and keeping her inside all day will make her depressed. We are not irresponsible cat owners, we have her de-fleed/de-wormed etc. Give her a healthy diet & a lot of love, so some how i dont think we are being irresponsible. I think u may have jumped the gun & assumed we are irresponsble. Please check out your facts before making an attack.
Thank you.
