Hi everyone! I have to admit I wondered about the number of kittens, too, but
I used to do a lot of rescue and I always seemed to end up helping pregnant animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, etc), so I didn't question it. I applaud the people who open their homes to these cats in need.
In saying that, I don't have a problem with good responsible breeders. I think the key to helping with the overpopulation, is what has been mentioned before, education and that is why I am glad to see so many great people here that are willing to help with that.
Athena is the only kitten I have and she was an orphaned kitten out of a litter of 5. I've been bottle-feeding her. My girls, Hera and Reyah, were both dumped in the shelter when they were pregnant. I don't know if the owner was just irresponsible or what happened, so I won't judge them. The good thing is that now, both girls are spayed, so that won't happen again. I had them spayed on Tuesday, and they're doing fine. Speaking of which, just to update those of you that answered me the other day. Reyah was not pregnant. When the vet looked at her, he thought the same thing, but he isn't sure why she got as big as she did, because he said that there were no masses, it wasn't a false pregnancy, and she wasn't pregnant. Anyway, to those of you willing to help others, keep up the good and caring work that you do.
