A Pregnant Stray Cat Adopted You Ė And Now What?Written by Marc de Jong
It happens all too often. A family or cat friend gets adopted by a stray cat. And after a few weeks it turns out sheís pregnant.
In US alone there must be millions of sweet but homeless cats. And many of them get pregnant several times a year. Nobody really knows why, but pregnant strays often adopt a family instead of other way round. Maybe they search for support or a good and warm home for their kittens.
Now, perhaps you donít have space or time for a cat family. Or thereís another reason that makes it difficult to have these kittens. But you donít want to throw this stray out. Sheís expecting babies, isnít she?!
Now what can you do?
You could take her to an animal shelter. Thatís not always a good idea.
Donít get me wrong: I value work of animal shelters. In fact, I got my current cat from one of them, and Iím pretty sure next will come from a shelter too. But some animal shelters reportedly put a pregnant stray to sleep. Youíll blame yourself forever if you hear cat you brought in, was killed.
