The Kitty says thanks to all of you! (We haven't named her despite the fact that she lives here for years, so we refer to her as "Matsa" which would mean "The Kitty" in English
I hope you'll consider keeping her safe in the house or an enclosure. Here are some ideas. Some are very inexpense and easy to build!
Thank you for the link, but my father is afraid of cats and I can't build an enclosure because I live in an apartment
The price itself is not a problem at all.
I'm sure your heart was broken when the kittens were killed.
When the neighbours woke me up to tell me that the kittens are killed by a pack of dogs, I was first shocked, then desperate and finally angry
. I was mentally capable of killing that whole pack of dogs with my bare hands, which is terrifying.
I'd say she most resembles a russian blue in looks and personality (I'm definitely not an expert though). That being said, she is probably not a purebred, and would be referred to as a domestic short hair (DSH). Either way she's an absolutely stunning cat, with a wonderful personality from the sounds of it.
That's just enough for me!
You mentioned that people in your country don't care about the homeless pet population, but do you have homes for the kittens? The concern with homeless cats, in my opinion, is not so much that they might be euthanized but rather that their quality of life is quite poor. Although cats are skilled hunters, they are domestic animals and are by nature happiest when they are clean, cared for, and belong to a human family. You obviously care for this cat, so I'm sure you are sympathetic to the plight of other cats like her who must live brutal lives on the streets with no kind people (like you and your neighbors) to feed and love them.
Could you perhaps keep her inside your home until you are able to sterilize her?
Some people have already asked me for kittens. When the last litter was killed and she got pregnant again, I was thinking about sending her to a farm (not putting her down, but actually giving her to a man who runs a farm), but the owner declined when I warned him that his chickens would be in danger. However, the man asked for a kitten to raise and teach not to kill chickens - with a mother like her, good luck to him! There were three persons fighting over the blue/grey kitten from the last litter. I will always regret for not giving him/her away as soon as was possible, as that would've saved her/him from the dogs. When can I start giving the new kittens away?
As I mentioned earlier, I just want her to have descendants. Had the first litter lived, she would've surely been sterelized, but when her first kittens were killed I thought that she deserves a second chance.
I'd keep her at my apartment all the time, but my father is afraid of cats (childhood trauma)
He feeds The Kitty and he even made her a doghouse, but he would touch a wild wolf sooner than a cat
