So sneak her into my room?
Not sneak her in but bring her in, set up a place for her, then tell your mom she needs to stay in and that you have a place for her so she can have her babies safely (and you don't have to worry about them multiplying outside) and you see no reason for her to go back out.

Oh, ok, cause I did grow up with many barn cats, and there kittens were fine, but sort of wild, as you guys said. But with my cats, they are going to get the best care. thanks Maxy. And everyone else!

So your other cats are fixed but Mika isn't right? What is the reason your mom won't fix her? Because it is to expensive? Who brought Mika home if you couldn't afford proper vet care (spaying)? Maybe you should try and find her a home where the new owner can spay and take better care of her Maybe you can print out this thread and show your mom

No Mika, came to us, and I started to feed her. So basically, this is my fault.

Not your fault because you did a kind thing for her. However, your mom obviously didn't want her so she doesn't feel obligated to care for her..........

Ok. I'm going to be honest about what I'm concerned about. I admire your determination about all of this. I think you can work very hard in order to get her spayed and can succeed. My real worry is that something will happen- Mika needs an expensive surgery, an accident happens, or anything, something more expensive than something you can earn yourself, and your parents will have no interest to pay for it. It's just something I was thinking about, that's all.
I mean going through a tough time financial wise is one thing (like we are, but my mom -in addition to me of course- would do anything for our pets), and not particularly caring is another.
I just want you to honestly think about it. Not telling you to get rid of all your animals or anything.

but cats usually have a much easier time kittening ( kitty version of whelping)
i believe the feline word for whelping is queening, just a random fact for you not that is really important....

Yes, Momof2pups, I understand your point, can your concern. I am also concerned, cause what if she has a miscarriage too? Or the stuff gets stuck in her and can't get the placenta out, and all of that. After this, I am going to do my best, to get this cat spayed, I am going to start getting some money for her. And trying my hardest.

I don't want to have sounded like I was putting you or your efforts down at all. I am very proud of your determination. Just naming concerns is all. I so wish you lived near here. There's a $10 s/n for dogs and $5 s/n for cats at a clinic around here.
