I ended up in conversation with nice lady with dog (and house cat & rabbit at home).
She was asking me if I wanted kittens from her sisters cat (Good job she asked ME and not Steve )
Apparantly the sister is running out of suitable homes for her cat's kittens. In fact this litter is her mating with her son, who they couldn't rehome from the last litter
The lady was nice and listened whilst I said that we would help if we could but that mum cat had to be spayed and the kittens should have an adoption fee.
Steve has suggested that we offer to take them all and rehome but I guess this lady wants her cat
The lady is going to talk to her sister about what she is going to do with the cats and will either call by again or drop a note though our door if they need/want help.
I just feel sad for that mum cat and endless kittens. I am also worried about her being sick and the kittens must have messed up genes from a Mum & son mating.
