It is looming on the horizon--KITTEN SEASON!!

April 6th 2013 8:56 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Kitten season is coming and soon all of the rescue groups and shelters in our communities will be inundated with kittens. Some of them will be too small to be adopted or to survive without help. Many groups use foster homes to help the debilitated cats and dogs or under aged kittens and puppies to get healthy and ready to go to a home of their own. My family fosters under aged kittens for the Yolo County SPCA. All of us were former fosters who stayed. Some for health reasons and some because our person just couldn't give us up. (I stayed for Love) Please consider fostering if you can. You don't have to be able to bottle feed hourly. Many times for some shelters it just just a matter of a short time until the foster can come back to facility to be altered and adopted. Our group is a foster home based group so the fosters stay in their foster home until they are adopted. Depending on the group they will provide knowledge, support, supplies and veterinary care. We encourage you to consider it, if you can. Also, please support your local shelters and rescue groups. Support local low cost spay/neuter efforts. Spay/Neuter keeps unwanted animals out of shelters. Help us help the animals in your home community. And as always join with us on the Power of purr to purr for rescues and forever homes for all!

Wow, I am so proud to be selected as one of the diaries of the day. I hope that it means that more Catsters will spread my wishes. My person worked last Monday at another Spay Day event at our local shelter. All together in our area there were over 700 dogs & cats altered and microchipped and vaccinated! This means that these cats and dogs won't be adding to the overpopulation of unwanted animals in our community. Please support your local rescue groups and shelters. Please help with spay and neuter events in your area if you can. Purr with us on the Power of purr for rescues and forever homes.
My person volunteers, fosters kittens, and donates what she can. Some people that she knows also give her donations to help our rescue group. It makes her feel very special when they do that.

Tell your persons to help, too!

In our area we have the largest one day spay and neuter event in the nation. That means that over 700 dogs and cats will be altered!! This event is to help income qualified people get their animals altered. What this means to the community is that over 700 cats and dogs will not be having kittens and puppies that will either be given away unaltered, let go to roam the streets and have more kittens and puppies, or taken to local shelters. My person will be working at 2 clinics. One tomorrow that will neuter 99 cats!! Please support spay/neuter efforts in your community. You may think that one person can't make a difference but you can.

Support your local shelters and rescue groups to help animals in your
community. Always always always adopt don't shop!! Purr for rescues and forever homes with my family in the Power of purr chain on the rescue forum.

Spay Day USA is an opportunity for income qualified people to have their pets altered for a really good price. In our area it will be on Sunday March 3rd. My person will be coordinating a clinic that has volunteered to alter 100 male cats. And you know the odd thing. . .people aren't contacting the organizing group to schedule appointments. Hopefully all the appointments will be filled soon so that we can make sure that those boys don't go out and make more kittens. Because kitten season is looming right around the corner.

Wow, I picked as Diary of the day. I was so happy that many catsters read my diary and commented. My most favorite thing was that some of you were inspired to search out a local rescue group or shelter to support. You make me proud when I hear that. Our precious Dodger started the diary because when he posted and asked for purrs for support our rescue group had adoptions. The support of our Catster friends with purrs helps us.

Dodger would be so happy that our diary encouraged others to adopt, rescue,spay/neuter, or support a local rescue group or shelter.

Thank you to Catster for allowing us this forum. Please now purr with me and my family for rescues and homes for all. Adopt don't shop. And if you want to shop check out the wonderful animals waiting on Petfinder for homes of their own. There is power in our purrs and we must use this power well.

I have been busy this week taking care of my person. She has a bad cold and has been coming home and doing my favorite thing. . .nothing . . .and cuddling on the sofa with me, our cat family, and the foster kittens. But it is Saturday and we need to get our selves in gear for placement with our rescue group. It is Ground hog day and cloudy and cool so if the groundhogs are to be believed, we will have an early spring. And you know what that means. . .KITTEN SEASON IS COMING SOON!!! So, please support your local rescue groups and shelters. Help with community cat programs. Volunteer for Spay Day USA in your area. Make kitten season a happy time and not a stressful time of too many kittens and too few homes and rescue groups.

One of our dear friends worked last Sunday at a community cat clinic. Almost every female cat that came into the clinic was in heat and you know what that means. . .KITTEN season is on the horizon. This year it seemed that it never really ended with kittens needing help continuously. Please support spay and neuter efforts in your community. Please support community cat clinics to help these kitties in your area. Support your local shelters and rescue groups because they help animals in your area. Adopt don't shop--shelter and rescue animals are wonderful pets. I should know since I am a former rescue and foster. Please purr with my family on the Power of Purr in the rescue forum. You may think it silly but when we purr our rescue group has adoptions. And the more adoptions we have the more space we have and the more space we have the more animals we can rescue. Power to the PURRpeople!!

My diary was picked today. Thank you Catster for helping spread my words of adoption and rescue. My diary was started by my brother Dodger. When Dodger went to the Rainbow bridge one of his last wishes was that I would continue to spread the word of rescue. I promised him that I would. When my person is sad and wonders if there is anyone who is supporting us, we always hear from one of you and that makes things seem less overwhelming. Thank you for the diary pick and for the purrs and good thoughts for rescues and forever homes over the years. Until there are none adopt one Please!

I know that Dodger before me and I often sing the same tune. . adopt and rescue and support your local rescue and shelters and spay and neuter, but we can't stop talking and posting about these until there is no need. I just get so cross with 'activists' who complain and demand but DON'T DO MUCH ELSE. Hey you activists out there are you unhappy with things as they are? Stop running your mouth and get out and do something. Raise money for your local shelter or rescue group. Do you want low cost or free spay neuter in your community? Then talk to local vets and see if they will volunteer at a clinic or offer low cost spay/neuter at their facility. My person gets so fed up with demands for action from people who don't do anything.

Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Please purr with me and my family in the spirit of Dodger for rescue and homes for all.
