|I'm glad that you are excited about the kittens, but please tell your humans to have your brother fixed ASAP, his gf after the kittens are born, and the kittens before they go to new homes.
There are so many homeless kittens that shelters have to kill them every day. Everytime another kitten is born, wanted and planned or not, it steals a home from a shelter kitten.
If you need help finding low cost spay/neuter for the whole bunch and pediatric spay/neuters for the kittens, call Humane Societies and Shelters in your area.
This is an issue really close to my heart because I was one of those kittens who almost didn't make it out alive. Me- a beautiful purebred kitten! But the shelter was full of beautiful purebreds and loving kittens. I just got lucky- the right people were there at the right time. Over half of cats, dogs, puppies and kittens that were admitted to the shelter that same year were killed (they use a gas chamber). They were good animals! They would have been great pets! But there were too many..
