  • Did ya know... Finding young kittens is a difficult thing, it's heartwrenching. What do you do? If you find young kittens, even though you have the best of intentions, it's better to leave them be. You shouldn't touch or move them. Moms will most often leave them for long periods of time while searching for food or a new location (always trying to keep her young ones safe), or she may even be frightened by your presence. Keeping the kittens with their mother gives them their best chance for survival. Stay back, stay at least 35 ft away and watch (as long as the kittens are not in immediate danger). Mom may not return if she senses your presence. Just remember that mama cat is the best mother for her young and only in an extreme emergency situation and you are sure that the mother has not been around for over 24 hours should you attempt to rescue. If the kittens have a full belly, they are being fed. You won't always see the mama cat, she doesn't want you to know where her babies are, they can be good at hiding them (or think they are). Best case scenario is when they are old enough to be safely taken from the mama cat, if they can be handled (young kittens, stray or feral, are most often easier to handle than the adults), get them into the shelter.

  • HAPPY TAILS! The following pets were adopted: Danny Trejo, Erik, Zeb and Jaffa!
