Plenty is Plenty

Plenty is plenty when it comes to pet overpopulation. One female cat can begin breeding as young as 4 months old and, if left un-spayed, she and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in only seven years! One un-neutered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in just six years! The Humane Society of the United States estimates that at least four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation.

February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and many organizations offer assistance, some even no-cost assistance, during the month and throughout the year. If you, a friend or family member need assistance to care for their pet, call your local humane society or animal shelter and tell them you are looking for low-cost spay/neuter services.

If we consider that a woman can be mother of a perfect healthy child at 16 years old, at 50 years old she can be mother of her 30th child. Aware that at the birth of her 19th child, her first born can also be parent of a child (aka first nephew), and at the birth of her 26th child this first nephew can also be the parent of a child (aka the first grand-nephew), can anyone tell me how many of this catlike but very possible clan will they be in a hundred years span? And how many in 200 years? And when do the war with the neighbor's clan begin? Please?
N.B. I am taking in the ideal situation of one birth-one child (twins can balance the occurrence of an unintentional abortion). Oh, and btw, I love my cat, but I think that having just one afford me taking a better care of it (Her!).
