Phew! I barely dodge this time.
I'll try to make a long story short. About a year and half ago, we came home from vacation and a stray cat with her two kittens had taken up living at our house. Some neighbors I don't know had started feeding her at my house when they realized she was half starved. Since she was nursing, I continued to feed her. After the kittens were gone (gave one away and the other disappeared), she would come and go. Toward the end of spring this year, she showed back up pregnant again. She had a female kitten which I named Missy. I had read that you are not suppose to spay them while they are nursing. You can, but it can cause complication. So, I thought once the kitten is about two months old, I would spay Mama cat. Well, Mama had other ideas or lets say nature did. When Missy was about 4 weeks old, Mama got pregnant again. Luckily, she only had one kitten this time too. Cute tuxedo male cat. I took Missy in to the neuter spay clinic yesterday to take care of that future problem. When I picked her up, they informed me she had been in heat. Talk about dodging a litter! This morning I took Mama in. In a week or two, Iggy, tuxedo cat, will be neutered.
I saw Iggy's father hanging around this morning. I don't know who (if anyone) he belongs to, but if I could catch him, I would neuter him also. He is a beautiful solid black cat.
