Spring & Summer are known as “kitten season” because the warm weather acts as a catalyst for bringing intact female cats into heat, usually every 3 weeks. One female cat can squeeze out at least 2 litters during these months, many of whom will be euthanized because of lack of space in the shelters.
How You Can Help
Spay and Neuter your cats, even if they never go outdoors. As soon as a kitten is 2 months old and weighs 2 pounds, he or she can safely be altered.
⦁ Donate funds, supplies and time to your local rescue or animal shelter.
⦁ Volunteer to bottle-feed homeless kittens. Although it’s a lot of work, helping kittens through that critical period is very rewarding.
⦁ Volunteer to foster kittens until adopted. If possible, take an entire litter. Better yet, foster hard-to-place adult cats, who seldom get adopted during kitten season.
⦁ Practice TNR (trap, neuter, return) with feral cat colonies, which means trapping them, having them spayed or neutered and vaccinated, and then returning them to their habitats. The life of a feral cat is pretty dismal, but at least she won’t create more feral cats.
⦁ Adopt a cat, especially an adult one. If you opt for kittens, keep in mind that 2 are better than 1. Not only will they keep each other company, but they will really entertain you.
One of the best ways to help is to spread the word about the importance of spaying or neutering cats. You might think having “just 1 litter” isn’t that much of a problem, but if even 1 female cat is left intact, she and her offspring can produce thousands of cats and all of those cats won't be lucky enough to find loving homes. Many will find themselves in kill shelters or worse.
