All  these cats were trapped and fixed. Four of the cats I trapped were friendly enough to be fostered for adoption.

All these cats were once breeding in the streets, bringing more kittens in the world where they would be hungry, outside in the elements, and could be injured or killed. Now these cats are fixed and can live free without reproducing and the neighborhoods they live in will have less litters of kittens this coming spring. Unfortunately Sweet Mary was hit by a car and had to be put to sleep to save her from suffering.

Theoretically, [a female cat] can give birth to ... four kittens per litter.... with an average of three litters per year, [therefore]... an average of about 12 kittens each year if not spayed.  [With an] average lifetime of 15 years ... this could result in up to 180 kittens in her lifetime.

 

Even though all of these kittens won't likely survive... [there is the possibility of ] hundreds of thousands of kittens [being born on the streets due to one unfixed male and female cat].

Not to mention there's no telling how many female cats your neighborhood Tomcat can impregnate in one year!

This is why I do this.
