Just wondering- people should get their cats 'fixed' so they can't have kittens, but soon won't the cat population die down until there are barely any cats except for strays?

I hope this makes sense...I was just wondering

thanks

The point is to control the population so that only cat breeders can have kittens. There are too many abandoned pets in shelters; a cat owner who is unprepared to take care of kittens will only add to that.

It makes sense -- but I'm sure there are enough people who don't get their cats fixed -- or get them fixed after they've borne a litter or two -- to keep the cat population flourishing.

You're welcome. And if you want another cat, you might adopt a stray. :-)

Ah, yes. Please adopt a rescue animal. I only adopt older rescue animals because otherwise they won't have a home. I absolutely trust the rescue group from which I get them. With so many foreclosures of homes and people out of work, consider fostering as well, if you can.
