It's Kitten season again. That means many people will be getting new kittens as valued and loved family members.
Some people however find that their family cat has fallen pregnant and had an unwanted litter. Most people do the right thing and find homes for these mistakes - some don't. We've already personally found an abandoned litter of kittens. These kittens often perish or survive to become feral cats. They can spread disease, kill native wildlife and have more feral litters.
If you have a kitten or adult cat, PLEASE do the responsible thing and have them de-sexed! The cost is not huge - and if you're a pensioner, organisations like the Lort Smith Animal Hospital will do it for a very small fee.
