The general public usually agrees on one point : there's nothing cuter than a litter of kittens.
To criticize their coming into this world generally makes you look like a birthday clown having an erection : incomprehension and irritation towards such « know-it-all life-haters » seems appropriate. I will however try to explain the pro-sterilization point of view :
no, we are not life-hating castrators working against the true nature of animals ; our battle has a meaning, a purpose.

The domestic cat has descended from African wildcats (hence his sensitiveness to the cold, unlike French wildcats) and has been selected and domesticated by man for company and mouse hunting. Because it depends on man, the cat suffers a lot when left on its own. It then seeks warmth, food and the company of man. Female cats breed uncontrollably (with many kittens falling ill) and then generally die of exhaustion. You can add to that the damage to the wild fauna (dead birds, cross-breeding with real wild cats endangering the species) condemned by ornithologists and natural scientists. To « let nature run its course » when dealing with domestic cats is an ecological aberration and an act of cruelty against them. Of course breeding doesn't only concern stray cats ; many people decide to let their cat have a few babies with the impression of allowing it to accomplish a mother's duty and with the certainty that they will give the kittens to a welcoming home. We are now in May, the number of kittens coming from private owners is exploding. Go check classified sites : pages and pages of kittens to give away. Some find a taker (in most cases given away for free to any Tom, Dick or Harry without any form of identification) whereas the rest end up swelling the ranks of the shelters. This situation of overpopulation leads to hundreds and hundreds of euthanasias every year, whether they are done in a « clean » way by saturated shelters or more sordidly by abandonment, by drowning... Thousands of cats, babies or adults, languish in shelters. They are waiting for a home, for a second chance. If you really care to help them, do know that by neutering a cat (your cat or a stray cat) you allow them to find a place in a new family ; whereas bringing a new kitten into this world condemns another, for lack of space. And rather than adopting hastily through private owners that will continue to let their cat breed as long as they will find people to care for the kittens, prefer shelters or associations, where you will be able to adopt a vaccinated, identified and neutered kitty and don't forget adult cats, which nobody cares about when they have so much love to give...
