Explicit Video - Preview Before Showing to Children

This is a new video, replacing the previous one, which has been inexplicably removed from YouTube.

One of the common excuses for allowing a pet cat to give birth is 'I want my children to experience the miracle of birth.' If you are tempted to subscribe to this notion, spay your female cat and have your children watch this video first.

It might be best to preview it first, though and protect impressionable children from the final scene. The ending is heartbreaking, however, as the sympathetic producer of this video explains, it is about life and death

This cat was having a hard time delivering her last kitten. I would have stopped filming and assisted her. Somehow this video made me sad. It made me think about all the strays that should have a loving home but do not.

I just wished that all the advocates who harp at having your pet spay/neutered would find a way to make it more affordable so owners could have it done without endangering their children’s college fund. I know a lot of homes that had to give up their pet, or not take in a stray just because of that cost factor.

This is in response to Maggie. People should check out their local humane society. They always have assistance for the spaying or neutering. They don’t usually pay the total cost however they lend a helping hand.

Maggie, I agree there is a real need for low cost spay/neuter, and because of the reasons you mention there are more and more opportunities for low cost spay/neuter every day. Visit http://www.spayusa.org/ and use their nationwide referral service next time you are need. Or do it now so you will be ready and can share the info with others in your area.

The video was BEAUTIFUL. But, I am
always sad when any cat dies at any
age. Pet owners should take care of ALL of their pets needs, including spay/neuter. Animals DO NOT know
about birth control. Animals know about
mating as their way of procreation in order to keep their species on Earth.

The cost of spay/neuter is nothing compared to the total cost of caring for a pet. If you truly cannot afford to spay or neuter then you probably shouldn’t adopt. As an owner of a geriatric cat I can tell you that it just keeps on getting more expensive the older they get so if you can’t take the heat then stay out of the kitchen.

diane, That response seems reasonable, but doesn’t take into account all the ways that animals come into our lives. It’s easy to say if you can’t afford s/n or long term care – don’t get an animal, but many people when faced with (for example) the starving friendly stray are not going to refuse it what help they CAN give just because funds are tight NOW and they MIGHT cost a lot when they get old and sickly. Many people are simply not built for such logical indifference. That’s why access to low cost s/n for everyone is so important. It allows more people to help more animals, without adding to the pet population, when those animals otherwise might face a grim fate.
