It’s kitten season—again. Did you know that female cats as young as 5 or 6 months can get pregnant? And a female cat can have as many as three litters in a year. Which means that kitten season rolls around more than once.
Right now the Arizona Humane Society is struggling with an over-abundance of kittens who have been separated from their mothers. Unfortunately many people think they are helping by “rescuing” outdoor litters that they believe have been abandoned by their mothers, when in reality the mother just may be out looking for food or water.
Volunteer bottle feeders are needed to help these tiny babies reach the age where they can be weaned. AHS will provide training, food, medication and other supplies for you to care for them in your home until they are old enough to be adopted.
