With 3 intact cats the odds are even greater. One emergency vet visit could cost more than spaying all three cats.

Check local shelters or Vet teaching hospitals for spay/neuter programs.
I think your very rude there for judging a person like that. You don't know that persons circumstances. She could be doing all she can to provide a home for her cats. Nothing is clean cut in life. I have 1 cat who comes in heat every 2 or 3 weeks. I also have other cats who were spayed many years ago when I could afford it. My circumstances changed. I went from a house that had the funds to take care of my cats and dogs and even the neighbours animals, to not even having enough food for myself now. I look after my cats and dog very well, they never go hungry. I go hungry most days but never ever let my animals go without their meals. I can't afford to get my cat done. She is indoors all her life and minded very well. So unless you know the person as a friend or friend of friend don't make insulting remarks on how the person cares for her cat. You cannot make judgement calls on anyone that you don't know.
