It’s about that time. My black cat who is also my favorite, and I’ve raised since a baby, (the only cat allowed in the house if she wants to come in) is expecting kittens pretty soon. Normally she will have them in the house and then take them out, across the road and I rarely see them again, unless once they are able to follow her, one or two will show up. I worry about them crossing the road, but I can’t keep watch on them all the time.
I have three stay that I feed and water because I feel sorry for them, but I think that one of them is also pregnant. THEY can stay outside. I’m really not a cat person. I love all animals and like these strays, will feed and water them. I’ll pet them sometimes, and I always talk to them when I am outside. BUT, they keep getting into my garden, which ticks me off to no end. I have a squirt bottle on the porch all the time now, that I fill with cold water. If I see one of the cats or even my dog in the garden, they get blasted. It seems to be working, as long as I am outside. I just wish people would stop dropping these animals off at my house. I also wish I had the funds to have these animal spayed and nurtured, but I don’t.
The humane society will not help me in any way, and will not take these cats in. They just keep breeding. I’ve contacted so many people and agencies who I thought might help, but I get the same answer. Money issues, no funding, over crowding in the only shelter with is a non kill shelter, so they claim. I personally wonder about this though.
