Cat Math

Cat math illustration with garbage lid

One cat times another cat is how many cats?

A single cat left unspayed can produce two litters per year, and these kittens will soon be producing litters of their own. Do the Cat Math, and the exponential potential for overpopulation is astonishing. So why aren't we knee deep in stray cats? Disease, starvation, and predation take the lives of most feral cats within two years. Their lives are short, harsh and fraught with peril and suffering.

TNR or "Trap-Neuter-Release" programs are by far the most humane way to help alleviate the suffering caused by cat overpopulation. ALLEY CAT ALLIES is a national organization based in Washington, D.C. whose mission is to educate the public about the plight of feral cats. Check out their website for resources on starting TNR in your neighborhood, or helping in your own small but significant way such as building winter-proof outdoor cat shelters.

Don't Litter!
