Spaying My Cat
My cat had a liter of kittens 7 weeks ago, she has weened them for the most part, they still try to nurse but she will move from them. I have kept her inside for the past 9 weeks. 2 weeks ago my son came in from school and she ran out, was gone for 2 days, now i think she may be pregnate again. Can i have her spayed and stop the pregnacy? i dont think she can handle another litter of kittens. She has had 3 litters in the past year and half. Everytime i go to get her spayed she gets pregnate before we get there. Our Vet told us she cannot be spayed while she still has milk. Please Help!!

yes a tricky situation. It is generally not advisable for a cat to be spayed whist still nursing and at 7 weeks the kittens are still not quite weaned. My own vet would not spay until after 12 weeks.
However it is still possible to wait until that time and then have her current pregnancy terminated. this is possible to do but you would have to speak to your vet about this, some will some won't.
You are so right about your poor little girl having so many pregnancies. It really is not good for her health or for the health of the kittens.
So yes you can wait until the kittens are weaned and then have this pregnancy terminated then. Speak to your vet about this now.
