One of our kittens at the local Humane Society needing adoption. This time of year the shelters are all inundated with kittens and puppies. Sadly….if they don’t find homes fast enuf they grow up…to become adults in shelters…where less then half will be adopted thru their adult lives.
People? PLEASE PLEASE spay and nueture….even if they’re an indoor pet! Cats and dogs each have litters of 1-7 average….who’s babe’s then become ready to have litters of their own in 6 months (doing math? that’s approximately 49 newbies per year per animal)…..who’s litters then themselves are ready to have kids. in one years time? 1 un-nuetured/spayed cat or dog can have a production of up to or even more then 343 kids/grand kits/great-grandkids a YEAR!
We haven’t mentioned the diseases, the ones who become feral, the injuries…..the damage to wildlife….the amount of FOOD……….the amount of MEDICINE……..

    What a wee darling. It is so sad for some animals…(like children)…where they are born and quality of life.

  • agreed…luck works for some? like her…but not for many…like the solid black kitties or ones with unflattering handicaps

    This shot is so outstanding I thought it was a painting! Wonderful!!! Tho the story you told is a sad one, it’s even sadder here where the young animals never grow up to be unadopted older animals. They never get a chance. :-(

  • we at least have a shelter with many volunteers (me and others) to pet/love/sneeze and hug these babies….and at least it’s a no-kill one. they’re always kept up to date on med’s and medical needs and all that? but then the ‘human parents’ leave at 5 at night. and sundays there’s no humans at all excpt the ones who feed them and clean the litter/refuse.
    thanx Lenny!

    It’s unfortunate that people feel no responsibility for the offspring of the pets they bring home. The mother of our kittens was dumped in the street by our apartment, along with two other cats. We’re not supposed to have more than three cats, according to our lease agreement, but we couldn’t leave her out there to give birth in the snow. Fortunately, we have a Humane Society shelter here that is willing to find homes for all of them, as soon as the kittens are weaned.

  • people are more willing to adopt kittens then full-grown and ESPECIALLY pregnant kitties. bless you that you took your’s in and sheltered her so they didn’t become feral or worse. irresponsible people realllly irritate me. :o(
