How many cats can one pair produce? — 1 Comment

  1. Great article and you made some great points. The 420000 is so high that I think most people ignore it.

    I’ll give you a more practical number and one that cat owners can understand.

    Suppose you have a new pair of cats. Let’s say they can produce 1 viable pair every six months.

    At time zero, you have 1 pair. At six months you have two pair. The new pair also produces. At one year you now have 4 pair.

    1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64. In three years you have 64 pairs of cats in your yard. That is still a lot of cats for one person to feed.

    If it’s 3 litters pet year then you’ll have 64 pair in 2 years.

    I think the average person can wrap their brains around those numbers.
