    Hi all
    Today I was in my garden when my neighbour began talking to me and said her cat had had kittens. I said 'oh how nice for you' you know being friedly, even though I am not really a cat person LOL
    Then she asked if I knew how long till she could advertise them :eek: I was like ??? so she said they were under her stairs and all she could hear was them crying for mu etc and she wanted them gone as soon as they were off mum.
    I said I wasn't sure, but they dont open eye till about 2wks (agian I am unsure as going by dogs LOL) and I dont think they wean fully till 4-5wks and can leave at 8wks.
    She was not happy, but I told her I was just giving an estimated guess as I know nothing of kittens really. So she is going PDSA to get rid of them, although I am unsure how when they are only a week + 3days old!!!!
    Now I am definatly not a cat person, but even I know if you dont want the cat to have kittens get her spayed!
    I really feel for the cat and kittens, such a shame!
    Sorry for posting, but I just had to tell someone!!
    Thanks
    Louise

    Probably thought she could make quick buck but proving too much hassle now, hope they all get loving homes.
