Hi...CHAD Thanks for sharing. Do you think you could have handled things a little better? I added the picture of about 36 cats in a cat sanctuary to give an idea to our visitors what 36 cats in one place looks like.

I am not sure it was a good idea to let your female cat wander off unspayed to return pregnant and then let the newborns procreate some more.

Are you able to cope with all your cats to a good standard? And now half a dozen more. Is this wise?

There are too many cats without homes in the USA.

"..The harsh reality...is that the purposeful euthanasia of healthy but unwanted cats is currently the leading cause of death for cats in the United States"...The Cat, Its Behavior, Nutrition & Health by Linda P Case published by Blackwell Publishing ISBN 978-0-8138=0331-9

Might it have been better if you'd had your female neutered, plus supervised her a bit better, and then if you want to keep 36 cats (and more) and can do so properly, to adopt them from shelters. That probably would have saved the lives of 30 or more cats.

Just a thought. Thanks once again for telling us about your cats. I think, though, that your story will upset some people.

Yes, Finn, I hadn't thought of that. Sounds possible. Very possible.

I think Chad is trolling for our shocked comments. The cost of just feeding 36 cats would exceed the budget of any standard household.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
