It’s Foster Kitten Meow Monday
One of the perks of working at my local human society is getting to have kittens in our office. These two little kittens needed another week to gain a few more ounces so they can be spayed and neutered before they are available for adoption. By opening our office up for these two cuties we have more space in the shelter for other homeless kittens and cats.
This time of year is known as kitten season and in our area it usually runs from spring until late fall. One unspayed female cat can have 2 to 3 litters per year with 1 to 8 kittens per litter. If those kittens aren’t spayed and neutered and go on to have multiple litters of their own, you can see how it can quickly get out of hand.
On a happy note, these adorable little kittens will be spayed or neutered and get adopted. You can do your part to keep the cat population down by making sure your pets are spayed or neutered. There are lots of low cost programs for spaying and neutering your pets and a simple Google search will help you find helpful resources in your area.
Lollypop Farm has an affordable low cost spay and neuter program called SNIP, information on eligibility and how to apply can be found on their website.
Meet Myrna, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Little Miss Myrna is 7 pounds of fur and purr. She’s a 5-year-old female domestic longhair mix. This pretty girl would love a new home with places to curl up and nap. A window sill or two where she could watch the birds and squirrels wouldn’t be bad, either. Come meet this little one at Lollypop Farm!
