I grew up with lots of stray cats coming and going, so it's nothing new for me. However, we live in town and we've had a cat that has lingered longer than other random cats tend to. I really don't think it's going to leave and I don't really mind. \n \nProblem is, it's a young female who is guaranteed to end up pregnant, if she isn't already. To have her spayed would cost 0+ to have the surgery plus required shots. If I'm going to do that, then I might as well make her mine and bring her inside, I suppose, but that's not really an option. On the other hand, I don't want her reproducing in my backyard in the meantime either.... \n \nWould you put money into a cat that you didn't know if it'd even stick around? Would it be worth it to you to avoid unnecessary kitten population?
