Well, I feel like a hypocrite after my spay and neuter post; four of our cats have had kittens. The first litter was cute, (who can resist kittens) but by the nineteenth kitten it got a little bit old. We have six cats, five of the cats are females and one of the cats is a male. Little did we know, that only one of the female cats were fixed. The whole kitten dilemma started when four of the cats started spending a lot of time with their soon to be husband. About a month ago, we noticed four of the cats were looking suspiciously fat. We'd decided that they either gained a lot of weight or that they were pregnant. Then, three weeks ago when Laura Ashley (my sister) said that "She (the first mother cat) hadn't came to eat" that morning was when we knew that she ran away or had kittens. We started a kitten hunt and didn't find any kittens until that night. This continued to happen until yesterday, when the nineteenth kitten was born. To prevent this from happening again, we are going to take them to the vet so that they can be spayed and neutered.
