A stray of what species? If it's a dog, a hacking cough is known as kennel cough...the good news is that it could be something minor that will resolve itself, the bad news is that it could be something very serious such as distemper. There are many different types of bacteria and viruses that produce the "kennel cough" symptom. If you have any other animals, keep the stray isolated from them and thoroughly wash your hands with an alcohol-based disinfectant after handling her until you can get her to a vet and find out what's wrong.
