Help wanted: Kitten Season

Kitten season. If you love cats that probably sounds like a magical time of year. Kitten season is real and while it does indeed produce wonderful, loveable kittens, too often they are unplanned and unwanted. 

So, what is kitten season?

Female cats mate and give birth from early spring to late autumn. With a gestation period that averages just over two months, cats can have two-to-three litters per year producing between three and five kittens per litter. When you consider a cat’s typical 10-year breeding span, one female cat can produce up to 150 kittens!

Kittens, kittens and more kittens
When kitten season arrives, shelters across the country are overrun by an influx of kittens. At Feline Rescue, we are busy preparing for the incoming kitten take-over, but we can’t do it without your support.

How can you help with kitten season? There are several ways you can make a difference:

Make a donation

The easiest way is to make a donation online.

You can also ship or drop off supplies at:
