Ok thabk you, i was actually concerned about that too , but i dont think it would fix it. Here in the place i live in india theres actually feral and stray cats who roam around every where , like theres atleast 60 in my area ; and even TNR is difficult

Since you said you live in India, you will need to call a local vet practice to inquire about cost. Also, check to see if there are any rescues that may perform low-cost spays and neuters.

Let us know what you find out. If you do not spay and neuter your personal cats, they will have litter after litter after litter. It is not healthy for the females, and you will be overrun with cats and kittens.

India, i dont think many but yes there are cats like these , i have teo more cats here with a kitten too, i found the little guy outside alone and rescued him with no signs of his mom .
One of the larger ones is also the one who made her prego i think 😂
Ah, India... If you have difficult to find goats ,milk, so raw buffalo milk is OK. Or even raw milk from some of the india cows should be OK. But try out in small portions at first, to be entirely safe...

Do NOT give her pasteurized cow milk bougth in shop for humans. (but as said, goats milk is OK)

How much ekes neutering/spaying cost??
Sorry, we dont know what this cost in India... It may also surely vary between different vets. Spaying of females is prob more costly as its a bigger operation. Neuter of males is normally a peanut... You can perhaps try for a group discount? Because you have several?

So dogs attacked and killed Toffee? And now you think your cat’s kittens may be gone — the ones that were on the roof?

This was my fear with your cats coming and going inside and outside. There is no safety for the cats or kittens when they are not indoors only.

I am sorry for the unfortunate losses. Please get your cat spayed so this situation does not repeat itself.

Yes, toffee was killed by the dogs, but the kittens... No cat except for her has ever went there, but i think they died because of hunger/health because the mom was a first time and didnt really stay with them the enitre day, she was grieving for them too and started nursing toffee and my other kitten creme
