Kitten season is here!
While a seasonal forecast of tiny baby cats might sound like cuteness overload, kitten season can be a very hectic time for us.
We hear you – how can adopting two active, mischievous kittens be better than welcoming home one? Before making up your mind about adopting a single kitten or young cat, consider welcoming two (or more!) kittens home instead. In most cases, two kittens is even easier and even more fun than adopting just one. Click here to learn more!
Fostering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as an animal lover. It offers the best of both worlds to you – the love, affection and gratitude of an animal without the lifetime emotional and financial commitments.
JerseyCats relies on donations to pay for veterinary care for our cats, as well as for food and supplies for JerseyCats in foster care.
If you find young kittens without their mom, it does not automatically mean they have been abandoned by their mother!
The mother could be out looking for food, or finding a more suitable home for her kittens. If you find one or two kittens, their mother may be in the process of moving the family and is on her way back for the others. Wait and observe from a distance for an hour or two. Kittens have the best chance of survival with their mother. Ultimately, you have to use your own judgment, depending upon the kittens’ needs and your time and resources.
