Do Not Disturb
When you come across kittens, do not disturb them. The goal is to leave them where you found them so that mom does not move them to where you cannot find them when it is possible to trap the mom, and have made arrangements. Fostering a mom and babies makes sure the kittens do not go on to make more and the female does not have the opportunity to have another litter herself. So, first, do nothing. If you need help in aging the kittens, ASPCA has this guide.
167 And Counting (as always!)
- On 4/20 we sent 22 ferals to DCAS, 11 female, 11 male.
- On 4/21, 4 ferals and 4 friendlies went to ADOPT, with 5 females and 3 males. Included in this trip were the two first kittens trapped this year, and they will be available for adoption soon!
The moms and babies and litters of kittens are starting to come in, please consider fostering!
This brings us to 72 for April, 167 for 2023 and 14,119 to date. 833 to go to reach 1,000 in 2023!
We are working very hard to make a lasting change! Thank you for your help!

Single Kitten Syndrome
This is why you want to not adopt just one kitten, if possible.
