ST. LOUS, Mo. (KTVI)- Spring is the 'cat heat' season, when female cats and most fertile and receptive to mating. That season leads to an influx of unwanted kitten litters at adoption centers across the country.

Dr. Kelly Ryan, director at the Animal Medical Center of Mid-America (AMCMA), spoke with Kim Hudson at the Fox 2 studio to discuss methods of preventing unwanted kittens at animal shelters. The most effective method to prevent unexpected cat pregnancies is to get pets spayed and neutered.

Thanks to Petsmart Charities, the AMCMA is able to offer a reduced cost for the spay procedure of $20 for 100 cats.
