I didnt do enough
Ugh who am i kidding?

Sprouie shouldnt be in this situation at all. I didnt do enough to ensure that she didnt get pregnant. But i did try i didnt want her or bobby to die getting fixed, but surely there was something more i could have done to prevent this?

All i can think about is what if the kittens are born like bobby? will anyone actually want to take one home and love it forever?

But i love the kittens so much already and they are not even born yet, how am i ment to let them go? what if they get bad homes and i dont know and they get hit and screamed at??

Im a BAD parent.

The best way of ensuring animals do not produce young is to have them neutered. Anaesthetic deaths are rare these days and I guess we should remind ourselves that most of us know of someone who has unfortunately died during a simple procedure. We try our best using improved drugs and sometimes doing tests before an aneasthetic is administered but sometimes animals and humans do not survive. This reminds us of our limitations.

Getting back to the kittens and parenthood. I am sure you can make an appointment to see the nurse at your local vet and have her talk through the birth process and how to look after the kittens and their mom.
