Actually it sounds like the cat DID have a pretty good idea and found a soft, warm place to do it. Linens can be cleaned. At least it wasn't your couch or carpet. Congrats on the new kittens!

How is it irresponsible to not spay your pet? The OP didn't say that the cat having kittens was a problem, just the location where they had them. It is entirely possible that the OP wanted the cat to breed and have kittens. They may have set up "play dates" specifically to allow it to happen. You don't know. The only way it is irresponsible to not spay your cat is if you 1) actively don't want and can't support them having offspring or 2) you let your cat wander around outside

#75 I would argue that UNLESS you are an ethical breeder working to further whatever specific breed you choose (and I mean with show-quality cats or dogs that have already proven themselves in the ring, that they are top specimens of the breed, have had genetic health testing done, etc), then you are irresponsible for breeding your cat. Breeding your cat or dog just because you want puppies or kittens? Instead of breeding your cat for that, spay and neuter...then go adopt kittens from the shelt

That is assuming that the person in question didn't want the kittens that were born. I know a two separate people one with six cats, the other with eight and it's because they bred their cats and kept the kittens. They both have huge, huge homes. Quite a bit of money and all of the cats have their various shots and such. Also just to look at this from the animals perspective, how would you like it if a giant cat or dog decided you should be neutered since, well, there are plenty of unwanted c

You say you weren't judging or making assumptions, but that is ALL you did. And maybe the cat wanted babies? If you think they shouldn't be around to breed when they want then you shouldn't be able to either. Let's take you to be spayed or neutered, today.

#75 That's kind of how I feel too. If people are willing and able to take care kittens or puppies and find good homes for them, then there's no reason why they shouldn't breed their pets. If the kittens or puppies find good homes then they shouldn't add to the animals in shelters. People also have the responsibility to only get a pet if they can take care of them and not take them to shelters if they can't; they should do everything they can to find another home for their pet if they can't take

I was about to say the same thing! If I were that cat, I would've done the same and not regret it. I hope you are stoked about your new kittens, OP. Because kittens are fucking adorable.

That reminds me of the episode of Full House where the dog gives birth on Jesse's bed and he was freaking out and yelling, "why did it have to be my bed?!"
