Hello from PA!

Hello from south western PA! I have two cats- Faith and Kimba. We found Faith (tiger) outside 10 or so years ago in a burning pit- took her in and had her ever since. I found Kimba (siamese?) wandering around outside about four months ago. I'm really on here because I was feeding a feral cat outside- not intentionally at first- I was trying to start a compost pile. Anyways the cat started noticing when I would come outside and she would come closer and closer to me. It took about a year for me to be able to touch her. She got pregnant and had her kittens at the end of June. My boyfriend and I tried to find them but to no avail. Then we had a terrible thunderstorm and the feral brought her two kittens up to the porch! So I took them inside. The kittens are about 4 weeks old now. Here's my question. Kimba is being really rough with them. She will tackle them and then groom them- including getting them to go pee. I caught her trying to cuddle up next to them. Is that normal behavior? The feral cat doesn't seem to care but Kimba is awfully rough with them. Kimba is about a year old if that makes any difference.

Is Kimba a male or female?

Maybe she just wants to help the feral mommy take care of her babies. Is Kimba spayed? Maybe she had a litter of her own before you got her?

She isn't fixed yet. She's about a year old and we've had her for about 6 months so far. She's not pregnant either. I'm just not sure if I should allow her to continue doing that.
