The Kittens Are Coming, Are You Prepared?

Did you know that there's a time of year known as "kitten season?" It's a time of year known to the animal welfare folks because people start finding stray kittens just about everywhere -- on the street, in their back yard, maybe even under their house! The reason is simple; stray and feral cats tend to breed when the weather starts getting warmer and, before you know it, people start finding litters of kittens all over the place. (Get a kitten season 101 overview here.) 

We’ve teamed up with our friends at to:

  1. Bring more attention to this yearly explosion of the feline population
  2. Show you how you can help
  3. Show you how, if you bring home a new kitten, to keep your resident kitties happy. (HINT! It all starts with bringing these cute new kitties to the veterinarian before bringing them home.)

Help us spread the word
Check out the video below, and share this page with your friends. Then give yourself a bonus with some of our favorite funny (real life!) examples of kitties popping up in weird places. (Available under this video.) Enjoy!
