I wish people would get a clue about breeding cats, GET THEM SPAYED!!!! I mean seriously, people think this is so sad that these cats are tossed in shelters, and all the while it's because people breed cats in their homes, people buy the kittens because their so cute, and then once they're cats, no one cares about them!!!! UGH. >:(
