Who are you talking to?? ChildFree23 wrote in message ...

Why wasn't she spayed, and the father neutered, when you brought them home?

She's talking to YOU. I know because I can read minds. Emotion: wink
Who are you talking to??

Presumably the OP.

My female cat birthed a litter about 4 weeks ago and to my surprise, my male cat (not the father ... around wondering what the hell happened too! Should I stop this?!? He's taking over the show here... This aint' right.

Is the mother still able to nurse the kittens? If so it's not a problem. But if not then it's needs to stop. But I still feel that the male cat should be kept out most of the time.

Yes, momma is fulfilling her natural and God given responsibility to NURISH LIFE on this planet. We are so proud and HONORED to be witnesses to this fact.

Actually, we are beginning to be impressed with Uncle - Perhaps it is my own mother tendencies to be over-protective of the kittens - and maybe we are not being fair by giving him the benefit of the doubt. I would like to see the relationship among Uncle and his nephews/nieces develop as nature dictates. It's fascinating.
Thanks

I wish your mother had eaten her young.
Oh! LoL, I thought you were talking about a RacCoon.

It does happen inter-species, too, though. Just probably not as often. There's a woman on the binaries.animals group who rehabs ... a.. a... oh, rats! I've forgotten what kind of animal it was. A kitten? A chipmunk? Not a dog. Priscilla

Yes, we had a dog that loved to mother the kittens. Momma cat was right happy to have a babysitter cuddle and clean them so she could rest. When we took the dog to be spayed, the nurse said "Oh, she'll never be a mommy" and my mother said, "She raised kittens so she's been enough of a mommy."
would somebody throw this guy a troll biscuit so we can have some sensible conversations

You know, when the kittens reach the age of 12 weeks, their mother is tired of them, and wants them out of the house. The uncle will not get tired of them in the same way, he has got himself a bunch of "buddies", but it's best for the kittens if you can manage to get new homes for them by that time. But NOT before they are 12 weeks old.
