It is not OK to have an unspayed female cat unless you are a licensed breeder.

Think of the relief of no more kittens. There are too many and not enough homes. Rescues, SPCAs, and Humane Societies are full; those that they do not have room for are sick, not socialized enough for adoption, and then they are put down. The numbers of cats destroyed is astronomical.
It is also not OK to ‘drop off’ these cats and kittens. Maybe 1% of these   creatures survive being taken in by the compassionate people who find them. The others are shot, eaten by wild         animals, run over, starved or frozen to death or killed by dogs and other cats, if they are dumped by a farm with an   established cat colony.
So folks, what are you thinking? It is not OK! No excuse you can possibly come up with makes it OK to dump      cats or kittens. It is each owner’s     responsibility to get their cats spayed, to stop dumping cats and kittens, or filling up shelters. Do the right thing and get your female cats spayed!
