It is one of the easiest things to do to help control the overpopulation of pets.
I completely agree with you: that was wrong of her. I admit, my cats each had a litter of kittens... Not on purpose, though. We just didn't get them spayed, because I wasn't really aware at the time of what it did to the population - otherwise, I would have taken in a cat from a shelter or something, if I could have. We did, however, have a foster litter that had been found on the side of the road. My cat who was still nursing her litter took them in and mothered them
And now the are spayed, both of them, and I try to spread the word. I guess my point is, that if you didn't explain why she should spay her cat, then she probably thought having cute kitties would be fun and what's the harm? That's what we thought, at first, because well yes we HAD heard the message spay/neuter but were kind of ignorant because we didn't know what it did to other cats. So I guess my point is, yes that was wrong of her, but she just may not be aware as you are.
