I had a cat long time ago, probably got her around '93; she would only have one litter per year which made us think all cats did. The cat sadly passed away a few years ago and I got my mom another one (since I don't live at home anymore) and we thought she was going be an indoor cat. My family moved to another house and the cat was put outside, shortly she started having litters.
But she has had so many litters over the last 3 years.
Example: Cat gets pregnant, has litter, kittens reach 3 months of age and the cat is already pregnant again. It's not annoying to take care of the kittens, but its hard to get them all new homes. Not that we haven't, but it's still somewhat of a hassle.
So, could someone explain the differences? I'm really confused.
By the way, we are planning to spay the cat as soon as current kittens reach 10 weeks of age.
