Ash is getting fixed on the 28th and Isobel is getting fixed after that.  I've 
had to save up the money for both surgeries, that's why they weren't fixed 
sooner.  Honestly, with Ash's physical problems (not being able to stand and 
walk properly), I didn't think he'd be able to mount her and successfully 
impregnate her.  He can't even jump on the couch or bed because of his balance.

This is heartbreaking. I am sorry for poor Isobel. If you can't afford to
spay, I cannot understand why you wouldn't get Ash neutered or separate
unaltered males and females. When I have rescued litters I separate the
males and females to avoid unwanted pregnancies. 

Isobel and her kittens, if pregnant, have been so unnecessarily exposed and
she, so unnecessarily pregnant. I would see if the vet will abort her
pregnancy. This will likely cause greater risk to her if she is now also
positive but, imho, better that than have the kittens born to an unknown
future since you won't be keeping them.

and the only possible father is my FeLV+ kitty, Ash.  Isobel is showing
signs of pregnancy (hard and protruding tummy as well as pointy nipples). 
She's going this Thursday to get tested for FeLV.  My question is, if she
tests negative (which my guess is she won't being that her and Ash mated),
will the kittens be FeLV+ because their father is FeLV+?  Also, if Isobel is
pregnant and she is FeLV+, does that automatically mean the kittens will be
too?  I feel so horrible about not getting her fixed sooner, but my money is
tight and I have to save up just to take them to the vet.  If she is
pregnant, I can't keep the kittens as we already have three and my
boyfriend
is allergic and says no way to any more cats in the house, which I
understand.  If I take them to a shelter and they're positive, won't
they
put them to sleep right away?  I don't want that to happen.  I live in
Southern New Jersey...anyone want more kittens??  When I take her to the
 vet this week, I'll have them confirm her pregnancy.
