So my cat (or shall I say my mom's cat) got pregnant again. We were planning on getting her fixed at the last litter, but since we still have kittens that like to nurse on her I was a little scared to do it. When I first had the suspision that she was pregnant again, we decided that she has to be fixed. Unfortunatly the poor kitty is sick, she has diahrrea EXTREMELY bad. She's had it for about a week if not longer now, and I told my Mom today that with the cat sick they will not fix her, and I think she's to far a long to have an abortion also. She said that she doesn't have enough money to take the cat to the vet and she can not go through another litter of kittens. I'm a little confused on that one since they stayed in my room, I weened them onto the food, I litter box trained them, I'm the one that had to move them out of the closet so they could learn how to walk since Momma kitty was never going to do it. I'm the one that put notices on Craig's List and walked around putting signs up around my neighborhood to find them new homes, and she was there for 2/5 of the kittens births and since I was at school when everybody called she met with the people that wanted them. So now she wants to send Momma Kitty to the pound OR MAYBE the SPCA. If she goes to the pound I'm scared she's going to be put to sleep, because she's sick and the fact that everybody wants little kittens. I hope my Mom will shell out the $15 to give her to the SPCA. Quite honestly I think she might be better off in a new home. I don't think I should have to tell her owner when she is sick and needs to be seen by a vet, I'm the one that has to figure out everything so that she can get fixed, I have 3 cats of my own right now that I need to take care of. And I don't plan on living here forever. Any ideas that I can use to help persuade my Mom into at least giving her to the SPCA??
