Sterilising - too expensive
A social worker wrote in and said that she had a client with a problem. I managed to speak with the woman today. She has to sell her house and move out and she cannot bring her cats with her as she does not know where she is going yet. In addition, she has a 20 year old cat (which she tells me she does not expect to live much longer) and a number of kittens. Her children brought them home and she didn't sterilise them because she told me it costs $150 to sterilise a cat, so they've been producing, and breeding and now there are 6 or 7 cats, with a pregnant cat among them.
She's open to putting them up for adoption and she says she will get them sterilised when I gave her a cheaper vet option. I hope she'll follow through.
