It's kitten season and your help is needed 😺😺😺
Kitten season is here and it is raining kittens. In the past 24 hours, we rescued 11 kittens, and many more are coming!
Every kitten season, rescues all over the world receive many calls for help as thousands and thousands of kittens are born in all kinds of weird places. A family of kittens Katie McKittrick rescued two days ago were born inside of an abandoned car. The temperature was 90 degrees outside which means that in the car it was at least 20 degrees hotter, the 3-day-old kittens were panting, so she had to get them out of there, and the attempt to capture the mom is still ongoing, but this mama is too smart for her own good 😰
Amazingly, as she was looking for the mom, she found another litter of 2-day-old kittens born inside of a different car!!! These stories almost sound unbelievable, but we have it on camera 😎👍
In the video below, JoAnn Wiltz got a call about a young cat who had given birth for the first time, and she wasn't sure how to handle that situation. The newborn kittens were scattered on the property, and without help, this story wouldn't have ended well.
The one thing that EVERY rescue out there needs is more foster families who are willing to take care of these babies until they are ready for adoption. Fostering kittens is so amazing, rewarding, and it's a lot of fun. I have been doing it myself from a very young age and I think it is so important from an educational standpoint - connecting young children to nature in the best way possible.
This coming weekend, there are going to be many adoption events all over and I would LOVE IT if you would visit them and offer to volunteer. Some kittens will come with their mom which is easier to handle, and some will require bottle feeding.
