|Hi BK and Beatrice!
The rescues I have worked with have told me they have waiting lists for adoptable kittens - meaning adoptable age, healthy babies.
They sure do have plenty of adult cats! But I guess during the winter months, the strays aren't feeling as frisky so there isn't as many kittens. I think it is also worse in some areas than others.
Some places are excellent at TNR, and those places are the ones that see the most "shortage" of kittens during these times. Spay/neuter is the way to go!
But if a shelter does have a waiting list for kittens (and there are ones that do!), then best to save some from somewhere, anywhere. I just happen to live in South Florida, so those are the animal controls I work with.
I wrote this hoping to inspire others to do the same and think about moving kittens around to where there are less numbers. It is true -- NY is awful, and so are many other places. Perhaps a system like this could help there as well!
No need to think of just certain cities of places. Just where there is need or room for a few furry paws to be safe and get the time they need to find the forever homes they deserve. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope this helps it makes more sense!
