Omg, those kittens are so adorable, I think I just died of their cute little eyes searing into mine through the computer! SQUEEE they look so cute, Skye. I'll admit, I'm a sucker for animals...

Why doesn't your Dad spay and neuter his cats?

I don't know, they're not my cats. I've offered to take them to planned pethood for a snip, and he's told me that since they live in the barn, in the country, and on a main highway that it would be a waste of money to do so, and that the road is the "great equalizer" that controls the population. My best guess is that he has seen one too many of our cats come back from getting fixed and then killed in the road a month later.

That's why I'm trying to hurry to get Boe out of there, fixed, and indoors where he'll be safe.

That's horrid. I'm glad you don't follow in his footsteps.

He doesn't do it out of malice, or lack of caring. It's more of a thing where he's been hurt by it so much that he just kind of gave up, you know?

He really likes having his barn cats, but barn cats have a high mortality rate, especially when your house is surrounded by roads, and you know all too well what local predators are around, because you've seen them pick up your cats. (Which was traumatizing, to say the least)

Rest assured though, that as soon as we get a house, and provided that Boe's old enough, he'll be getting fixed. No Kitten Support for him!
