How many Litters of Kittens can a female cat have in a lifetime if not spayed?
Have you ever wondered how many litters of kittens a cat can have?
Well here are some basic numbers to show how fast cat populations can get out of hand.
The average number of litters a fertile cat can produce in one year is 3.
The average number of kittens in a feline litter is 4–6.
In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can theoretically produce 420,000 cats.
Only 1 in 12 of those 420,000 cats born find a home. :o(
Even if you found homes for all your cats, you are still taking away homes that other homeless cats could have had by adding to the population.
There are no excuses for your allowing a pet cat to have kittens.
Please Spay your cat!!!!
