Free roaming cats have a very harsh life to live - while feeding them is a very kind thing to do, spay & neuter is a crucial way to help save lives. If you are feeding cats in your neighborhood or see homeless cats, please reach out to your local rescues & shelters for help or for information on low cost spay/neuter clinics or trap neuter release (TNR) programs.
A female cat can become pregnant at just 16 weeks old. In general, they can have up to 4 litters of kittens per year with an average of 4 kittens per litter, although litter size can range from 1 to 12. Just using the average number - means that unchecked, a stray or feral cat can have 15- 20 per year, all at a risk of becoming sick or with a disease, all having to endure extreme weather conditions, dodging cars, being prey, people with cruel intentions as well as overcrowded shelters & rescues if help is found that may not have the room to take in.
