The Plum Tree blog is supposed to be something where I can show you what new pieces we have as well as what is going on in our little town, not to get on my soapbox. However, this month has been a little more then fun for me.

Remember a few weeks ago I showed you a photo of four adorable little kittens that were born at the Plum Tree. They were the result of someone that does not take proper care of her pets. Well another kitten was born as the result of another cat of hers that is not spayed. He was probably born a few weeks earlier then the other four who's mother was killed.

The other four I surrendered to a kitten rescue where hopefully they will get good homes. This irresponsible pet owner has one more that will be having kittens any day if she hasn't yet. Of course she has a few males of her own as well as every male cat in the county hanging around.

The statistics are staggering on strays and cats that are not spayed or neutered. An adult female cat can reproduce up to 4 times per year, with an average of 1-3 kittens. 97% of those kittens will be female. They can start family's as young as 7 months. Spaying can be done at 4 months and discounts can be gotten through your local veterinarian.

I did not want another cat, nor do I need another one, however when you look into their sweet little faces and know what their life would be if you were to let them alone to spread disease's and die an untimely death the answer is very clear.
