The shelter puts down kittens too? Oh that is always sad to hear. But a kitten will come through.
Ya most people don't realize how many kittens and puppies are put to sleep, they think they won't be put down if they are young and cute, but it's not always the case There just aren't enough homes for all the kittens being brought in.
Asmileforonlyu that's great your cat now has babies to nurse, I'm happy for her (and you)
