If you're gonna feed it, you gotta spay it....

If you end up with a female, and you want to feed it, it will stick around. You need to spay her or you'll end up with so many grandkits you won't believe it: cats can have up to 5 litters a year, with an average of 3 or more kittens per litter. You CAN spay a pregnant female. And don't say to yourself oh, well, we'll just give the kittens away when she has them, it will be easy to give away kittens. NO, the mother cat will hide those suckers and you won't be able to find them til they're old enough to fear you, and you'll end up with unsocialized kittens that no one wants but folks who have a LOT of patience. If you end up with a male, you need to neuter him or you can expect fighting, yowling, and cat spray all over your back door, side of your house, bottom of your shoes, lawn furniture, your car and everything in your yard. It stinks, and it is almost impossible to entirely remove.
