Answer

Thanks for your question. The short answer is no. Why not? There are thousands and thousands of unwanted cats put to sleep every year in the United States. In my opinion, there are other ways to help kids learn about life. Take them to a zoo, find a farmer friend that will allow you to watch a cow give birth to a calf, watch a discovery film, or read a book.

Best of luck.
