i am so glad you are going to get her spayed. I dont know official figures for animals to be pts in the UK and we have a lot less kill shelters than you do (ours is certainly no kill, Tom was with us for 14.5 months!!), but I still think it is 4 figures min (and that is just from one place that does pts) per year. Too many sadly. KatieMae - if you are interested in fostering, pm me the rough area you live in, and I will let you have some shelter details. I do hope you will get the male kitten neutered when he is old enough though.
