6/23/16 – Please share!! While we continue to help our canine friends, the mama cats and kittens continue to be busting out of the seams. No matter how much we all spay and neuter our feline friends, the reproduction just continues. If you want to know why, here it is. A female cat can start reproducing as early as 4 months old. She can then proceed to have 3 litters a year. If that female, living in the wild, lives to 3 years old (about 11-14 years younger than an indoor cat), she can average having 45 kittens in that short life span. And, if nothing is done with those 45, each one of them will continue the cycle to either have kittens or create kittens.
Every day we get calls from individuals we have worked with and new friends who can’t turn their back on the alone and abandoned. Here are 3 beauties who are about 6-8 weeks old whose mom is no longer caring for them. Many people might consider these babies feral, but keep in mind that we brought in a sweetheart who was outside for 10 months and had already had one litter, and a 12 week old. Today, they can’t get enough of Tony’s love.
If anyone is interested in helping these babies, please contact Jamie,email@example.com. 4 Paws 1 Heart will pay for all medical and let you use our resources to find permanent placement. Thank you for sharing and educating. ~ diana
