Yes - the queening heat is what leads to the lovely back-to-back litters that create the population explosion. If you can catch her now, many of the spay-neuter clinics will actually perform an abortive spay (preventing this litter as well as future ones). Or, at the very least, confining her to prevent breeding on her queening heat as you are unlikely to ever find her in a non-pregnant state if not. She is not really feral, just stray, so you won't be likely to qualify for the free catch/release programs many of them offer for ferals, but they are much cheaper than regular clinics - you may also be able to get a voucher for reduced fees on spay/neuter through your local humane society. I'd be happy to help you find information for your area if you would like.

try to keep her inside, because they can get pregnant right after giving birth.
and i dont know where you live but in MA, theres this thing called "FOA" or "Friends of Animals" which is a certificate you can buy for like 51 dollars for a male cat and like 65 dollars for a female cat and you take it to your vet (not all vets take it) and its basically a VERY discounted spay bill. it saves you alot of money.

i would ask your vet if FOA is in your area
