Within the US alone there should be hundreds of thousands of candy however homeless cats. And lots of of them get pregnant a number of instances a 12 months. No one actually is aware of why, however pregnant strays typically undertake a household as a substitute of the opposite manner spherical. Possibly they seek for assist or a very good and heat residence for his or her kittens.
Now, maybe you do not have the area or time for a cat household. Or there’s another excuse that makes it troublesome to have these kittens. However you do not need to throw this stray out. She’s anticipating infants, is not she?!
Now what are you able to do?

Different shelters will spay her. They have a very good cause for that. The kitten inhabitants is astronomical and the final an animal shelter needs is put 5 extra homeless cats on this world.
However perhaps you may have objections towards spaying a pregnant cat – in any case, it is abortion on the identical time.
