darned teenage mom-cats

a few week ago someone came into the rescue where I volunteer and foster with cats....2 adult females, 2 kittens about 6 weeks old and a box (!!) and smaller kittens. one of the adults was pregnant and we determined the other was the mom of the little kittens. I took her and the 6 kittens. We figure mom is about 10 months old. And while she took good care of the kittens, she has TOTALLY lost interest in being a mom...... She is a nice short hair dilute calico. She will be spayed this week and available for adoption. Kittens? Yeah, they have a few more weeks. But since mom was getting into some cursing contests with the crew here and wasn't nursing anymore, it is easier to have her find her own home.....  The joys of fostering (and a reminder to SPAY AND NEUTER)....

That's so sad that people still haven't learned to spay or neuter their pets.  It's good that someone did take the mom and kittens to the shelter so they can find forever homes and be spayed and neutered. No wonder the mom cat didn't have much interest in her kittens being such a young mom herself.

Some people never learn, but at least they did the right thing in bringing them to you where they will get good care.   I tell everybody, please spay and nueter!  Some people think every female cat needs to have a litter... grrrrrrr!!  Thanks for being such a caring person!
