One of our kittens at the local Humane Society needing adoption. This time of year the shelters are all inundated with kittens and puppies. Sadly….if they don’t find homes fast enuf they grow up…to become adults in shelters…where less then half will be adopted thru their adult lives.
People? PLEASE PLEASE spay and nueture….even if they’re an indoor pet! Cats and dogs each have litters of 1-7 average….who’s babe’s then become ready to have litters of their own in 6 months (doing math? that’s approximately 49 newbies per year per animal)…..who’s litters then themselves are ready to have kids. in one years time? 1 un-nuetured/spayed cat or dog can have a production of up to or even more then 343 kids/grand kits/great-grandkids a YEAR!
We haven’t mentioned the diseases, the ones who become feral, the injuries…..the damage to wildlife….the amount of FOOD……….the amount of MEDICINE……..
