Did you know that a female cat can go into heat when she is only six months old and have three litters of kittens in a year’s time? Did you know she can go into heat again before her milk has dried up from the last litter? Did you know that a female dog can have two litters of pups in one year? Only we can keep our pets from reproducing; they can’t manage it on their own. Please spay of neuter your indoor and outdoor pets!
