Help! There's a feral cat right
outside my door. I think she(?) might be either sick or about to have kittens. What (if anything) should I do?

It's 2am here, so my options (and other sources of help) are limited. It's Phoenix, so not crazy winter, although it is kind of chilly out. Should I get her(?) a blanket or something? We have a lot of feral cats around, and I usually never feed them, but something's clearly wrong with this one. She(?) doesn't run away at all; she hissed at me and then stood her ground. As long as I don't get too close, she's pointedly ignoring me (and my flashlight). She's(?) hunkered down in kind of a nesty place between a tree and a wall. Should I get her some water? Try to get closer? (I really don't think that's a great idea...)
