Why Spay and Neuter?
Millions of unwanted and homeless cats are born in this country each year. During the peak of the kitten season - from late April through September - pounds and humane shelters kill unwanted and abandoned cats at the rate of over one per minute. Others less fortunate are left to wander - easy prey for larger animals, easy targets for automobiles and easy marks for cruel pranksters. If they do survive, they attain maturity and bring forth five or six kittens, mostly females, to continue this vicious cycle. Every cat owner, whose pet is un-spayed or unneutered and allowed to roam, must bear the responsibility for this terrible over-population. Remember, one female cat's cumulative off - spring in ten years could total over 80 million!
TWO UNCONTROLLED BREEDING CATS...
plus all their kittens and all their kittens' kittens, if none are ever neutered or spayed, add up to:
• 2 litters per year
• 2.8 surviving kittens per litter
• 10 year breeding life
• In 10 years could reach 80,399,780
