    Sadly to some people, pets are like fluffy toys that you can put aside and forget if it suits you.

    One of my relatives has cats. And by 'cats', I mean she has no idea how many she actually has. She bought an undesexed pair from that hellhole Pet's Paradise, and let them go at it. Every 2nd month she sells a bulk lot of kittens to the local petshop or advertises online.

    The last time I visited she had four unweaned litters and three baby-kitten litters {between the ages of 6-8 weeks}, as well as 11 adults cats and "dunno" many teenage kittens.

    None desexed, microchipped or even vaccinated. None wormed, flea treated or even litter trained. They interbreed at will.

    She's friends with the local ranger, so everything checks out as okay, of course.

    This makes me so sad. I've had hardly any sleep since Friday night as my puppy had her desexing op, I've been so worried about her and having her sleep in my room, I'm 7 months preg and work full time but I don't care, I'm just worried about my little girl being ok lol. She was such a sad little sight on Friday (day of op) I laid on the floor next to her bed so that she would sleep I was so uncomfortable but she was out of it and in pain, whimpering and yet people don't even know where their pets are at 3am. So sad. I wonder how they raise their kids

    Try finding a rescue shelter near by. Some help disadvantaged owners with desexing and vet care. You could surrender the one that is in the vet as a stray and it will be cared for until rehoused. If you are in vic I can give you some numbers.

    I rescued my 9 month old cat Kipper from an ex neighbour 2 months ago after she was evicted from our set of of units. It was meant to be temporary until she found herself a new place but 5 weeks later she came over and said we could keep him and me and my son were ecstatic. We got him desexed the very next week we had him desexed.

    Kipper was part of a feral litter which her other cat ginger fathered and she kept him. She never had either of her 2 cats desexed and let them run around with the feral cats and kept them outside all day and only let them in at night. The feral cat and her kittens have been around since I moved in here in October last year, she said she had contacted the RSPCA/ council about getting the other cat and kittens removed and that never happened.

    Since kippers been here he has become more of an inside cat rarely going outside at all preferring to spend his time indoors in his favourite spot on a cushion under my bed. He loves the affection that we give him and is a valued member of our family.

    I think some people have pets as a sort of accessory and then don't look after them properly. If I had had kipper since he was a little kitten I would have gotten him desexed n vaxed n microchipped when he's a kitten which she didn't, since I have had him he's had all 3 done.

    So the vet had Said they would call back this evening. at 11:20pm we still haven't received a calls I am hoping that the lady Next Door Admitted to owning it. I think I will be calling the council and asking if there Is anything they can do to Trap them. The 2-3 houses (including the units) that possibly Own them aren't well off people. but there is no reason we should be afraid for our outside Kitty because they are at least 3 un-desexed Tom cats out there.

    My old neighbour was exactly like that he had at one stage 14 cats and I don't know how many kittens I saved one thT came into my yard from my dogs took it to animal welfare they desexed it microchipped it n needled for me for $150 which was my adopting fee as it was a stray and there were also so many there I don't want to leave her there. I have 3 my ginger boy refuses to live inside n my 2 girls come in n out as they please during day n in of a night cats all desexed micro chipped n vax flea treated wormed and 2 dogs both reg microchip vax wormed flea n tick treated 1 desexed one not I live In a pretty crappy area n there's a heap of strays the people on the corner just moved out and left about 8 Cats at last count I hate people who don't look after their animals with a passion n wish nothing but the horrid treatment of their animals upon them hence why I'm more an animal person than a people person I plan to be a animal rescue volunteer when my children are older

    Awww I love gingers. They are always such little characters. Hopefully he'll slowly come to trust that inside is a good place. HP is starting too. It get so upset when I think what must have happened to him. And then I drive around my suburb and I see heaps of strays wondering around (including the one that lives under a car on the corner of my street) and I wish I could invite them all home but if I did that I would end up as mad cat lady with a very stinky house!
