There are few indications that cat is in labor or labor is going to start within short period of time. These signs can be
  1. Licking of genitalia
  2. Restlessness and pacing
  3. Nesting behavior
  4. Breast enlargement
  5. Milk production
  6. Changes in behavior
  7. Reduction in temperature below 99 oF
By observing these signs you can expect delivery of kittens very soon.

My cat is an outside cat but I want to bring her inside before she has her kittens  how do I know when to bring her in?  She has had one litter before and we never found them and she never brought them out I think something might have gotten them.  I don't want this to happen to these.

My cat is pregnant right now too and she is an outdoor cat. I don't know about your cat, but mine stays pretty close to home. Cats are usually pregnant for about nine weeks, so I would keep track of her gestation and the closer it gets to her delivery, the more you should just keep her inside. If she tries to run out the door whenever you open it, I recommend using a spray bottle full of water to spray her. Make sure you have a dark, soft place for her to nest set up, it'll help her feel comfy.
