Well, I was always a 'no pets' person (even though I love animals) just because I know what havoc they can wreak on a home (I had a cat that lived for 19 years), but Mrs. Joyrex got my mother a cat shortly before she passed away when she was living with us. Around the same time, My mother-in-law had a small cat that I liked, so I brought her over to the house as well, and both of them ended up getting pregnant before we could get them fixed (going on holiday didn't help), and they both gave birth to a litters of 6 and 5 each.
So, we got them fixed, got all the males and females fixed, and over time (this was six years ago), a few ran away, some passed, and now only 1 from the litter of six is left, and 3 from the litter of 5 is left.
I know, you're doing the math and it doesn't add up - well, my mother-in-law brought over one of her cats who was pregnant (was a stray she adopted) and she had kittens (Mitsy in the picture above), a litter of 5. This was about four years ago. Out of that five, only two are left (one was hit by a car, one said 'fuck this noise' and decided to live with another family a few streets away (I see him from time to time), and the other died of an illness.
Fast forward to about two years ago, and the neighbor shows up with two stray kittens she finds, and then three strays also show up on my back doorstep (word got around there is a human who feeds cats pretty well I suppose). The strays were skittish to the point I couldn't exactly tell what sex they were (very floofy cats, hides the naughty bits), and one turned out to be female, and guess what happened - a new litter of four kittens, whom I am going to get fixed as soon as they are weaned off their mum (and get mum fixed too).
So there you have the saga of my cats. Did I mention I have seven doggos as well? (six chihuahuas and one derpy Corgi which belongs to my daughter). Oh, and a ferret that also belongs to my daughter.
We're all a big happy family, but I'm done with the pets myself - I'd try and find homes for them if I had the time, but I'm too much of a softie and would worry about them being cared for properly.
