Those are probably homeless cats. They make baby cry sound at night.

RE: Cat Behavior Guide
Yeah,they are pathetic.I just know that they are afraid of coldness and like to stay with person.There is also a homeless cat at my home.Last year,it came to my home.My family didn't know its keeper, and it stayed at our yard till the night.It looked hungry and tired,but it didn't want to go back to its home.My grandma who is kind gave some food to it.The next day,we still could see it in our yard. I don't know whether it has a owner or not.After that,it wasn't willing to leave,just stayed at my home.And my grandma has to take care of it, otherwise it will hungry to death.Now the cat has already had two little lovely cats,which i like.

RE: Cat Behavior Guide
Feeding a stray is a very kind thing to do, but you also need to get it fixed! A cat can get pregnant as young as 6 months old, and she can have two litters per year. By the time she is having the second litter, the females from the first litter are getting pregnant. Six months after that, the females from the second litter, the females from the first litter AND their kittens, and the mother cat are all having more kittens. Get the picture? Plus, those kittens she has must be brought inside and gotten used to people (socialised) BEFORE they are eight months old, or they will be too wild to be pets and you will never be able to find homes for them. Get them all fixed NOW, while there's only three of them! Check a website called Spay USA to find low-cost spay/neutr programs in your area. Or ask your local animal shelter.

RE: Cat Behavior Guide
Now,all of them are not willing to go other places,just stay at my home.So what my family can do is to set up a small house for them and keep them.Well, if the litter get pregnant,we have to give some of them to other cat keepers who are willing to keep.To spay them is not very good,i think.But thank you all the same.Actually,when i was young,i didn't like cats.They always scared me,expecially at night.During the night,their eyes twinkled which just liked a devil.That's horrible.But now,i find them lovely even if they are a little hard to take care of lol.

RE: Cat Behavior Guide
Actually, Monica, spaying them is VERY good for them. The males will not get in as many fights and won't get infections from bite injuries. They would also not be spraying or yowling as much, which could annoy your neighbors and cause problems for you. Spaying the females means they will not be as likely to get uterine, ovarian, or mamary cancer, especially if you get them fixed when they're young. And they won't be yowling as much, calling for boyfriends. Giving away kittens doesn't work very well. You're producing multiple liters of kittens per year, and each of those if cared for properly can live for 15 to 20 years, so you will quickly run out of adopters. And every kitten that you adopt out means a cat in a shelter that doesn't find a home. There's too many cats all ready; please don't add to the problem! Get them fixed!

When it comes to feline spay/neuter, I always find the number 420,000 sadly fascinating.

RE: Cat Behavior Guide
With the horrible cat overpopulation problem it is a shame not to spay/neuter your cats! As bad as the over population for dogs is, it is about 3 times as bad for cats!! To let ones pets keep multiplying is a crying shame. Go to your local shelters, the humane societies, LOOK at what letting pets breed does!
