Kitten season refers to the time when there is a surge in the birth of kittens. Typically, this occurs in warmer months, and it puts a strain on animal shelters.
Kitten season is triggered by various factors, including the increase in daylight hours and warmer temperatures. These conditions are optimal for mating.
Animal shelters face challenges during kitten season as they become overwhelmed with orphaned kittens. The influx puts a strain on resources and staff.
Spaying and neutering are vital to control kitten season. Responsible pet owners contribute to preventing the overpopulation of cats, reducing the burden on shelters.
Foster programs play a crucial role during kitten season. They provide temporary homes for orphaned kittens, easing the burden on shelters and giving the kittens a chance to thrive.
Kitten season also brings an abundance of adorable kittens available for adoption. It's a perfect time to expand your family with a furry friend in need of a loving home.
Get involved in your community by supporting local shelters, participating in spaying/neutering initiatives, or considering fostering.
