I trap and s/n ferals. In my small town my dh and I were able to do well over 50 at one house. I was having a down moment thinking I have not done enough and started figuring how many kittens we prevented. Bear with my math, I'm pretty sure I got it right: Out of every litter I am figuring half are males and half are females. I am also figuring 2 litters a year (some cats have 3) and 4 kittens per litter (some have more).
So out of the 50 cats, 25 males, 25 females
(1st year)25f x 2(litters) x 4 (kittens in the litter) = 200, 100m, 100f
(2nd year)100f x 2 x 4 = 800, 400m 400f
(3rd year)400f x 2 x 4 = 3200
3200 kittens plus the others that are boggling my mind right now as to who to add and who not to. After only 3 years!!!! whew!!!!
Anyway, my point being, please make sure your friends, neighbours, co-workers, everyone gets their kitties spayed and neutered and try to do a few strays while you are at it.
