If she was dropped off in Death Valley, she certainly would learn what it would feel like being a dehydrated cat in addition to the heat/wild predators there, I suppose. 8-O But I'm not sure I can subjugate anyone in such conditions, though...She left 35 kittens to die in the woods! 35!!! She should be left out in Death Valley and let her fend for her self!
I think she is a backyard breeder that got in over her head.
Except that she has kids.Forget about Death Valley - drop her off at my place (and I live where no-one would hear her scream) - I'll sort her.
