The population of cats is the United States alone is
unbelievable. Nearly all experts will tell you that you should spay your cat instead of breed it. No
matter what experts have to say, a lot of people want to have a litter of kittens from their cat. Before you
decide to breed your cat, there are a few things that you should think about.
The first thing you should know is that breeding cats takes
time. For the next two months after the litter is born, you’ll need to clean the area on a daily basis.
You’ll also need to watch over the kittens as well, and keep a close eye on how they are developing. If you
plan to breed a litter of cats, you won’t have time for much of anything else.
Breeding cats will also require a good degree of space as
well. If you have a small apartment, you shouldn’t attempt to breed a cat. You should also make sure
that your family agrees with the idea, as it isn’t good for the kittens if you keep them locked up. Keep in
mind that kittens like to see things; they’ll end up going all over your home as well.
Breeding cats also requires a degree of responsibility as
well. You should always have a plan of approach, including homes for the kittens to go that you aren’t
planning to keep. Keep in mind that things can change, someone who wanted a cat may change his mind once the
litter is born. In this event, you must decide whether or not you can keep a kitten that doesn’t have a
Breeding also requires some education as well. You
should be prepared for any problems along the way, as well as what takes place during birth. From cutting
umbilical cords to delivering early, you’ll need to be well prepared. You should also have the proper
supplies, and know how to handle things in the event of a c-section. You’ll also need to know what to feed
pregnant cats, as their diets are very important if you are breeding.
Breeding will also cost money as well, with kittens costing a
lot more money than you may think. The food isn’t the only thing that’s expensive, as the vet bills can also
get expensive. Even though you may go through the entire pregnancy without going to the vet, you’ll still
need de-worming and vaccination medicines as well.
In short, there is a lot to think about where breeding is
concerned. If you have your mind set on it and you want to breed, you should be sure that you have the proper
knowledge and everything you need beforehand. You should always be ready to handle anything associated with
breeding – and prepare yourself for the worst possible scenario.
