Spring is in the air! Along with the warmer weather comes what many animal welfare organizations refer to as “kitten season.” Kitten season begins in early spring and ends in fall, and it is when the greatest number of kittens are born. During this time period, the Kentucky Humane Society becomes flooded with litters of young kittens needing lifesaving care. While kittens are adorable and fun, the sheer number of kittens turned in can overwhelm the shelter and leave KHS very short on supplies and foster caregivers.
To help get kitten season started out on the right paw and prepare for the little arrivals, our wonderful partners at Purrfect Day Cat Café Louisville are throwing KHS a Kitten Shower! The Kitten Shower will be held on Sunday, April 24 from 2-5 p.m. at Purrfect Day Cafe, located at 1741 Bardstown Rd Louisville, KY 40205. During the shower, the public is encouraged to bring much-needed kitten supplies to the café to help us care for our little ones.
-Heating pads (microwavable discs or plug-in)
-Small food scales (for weighing tiny kittens) – weigh up to 3 lbs.
-Baby wipes (unscented)
-Canned kitten food – Iams, Wellness, and Purina are best.
-Kitten Milk Replacer (KMR)–both powder and liquid
-Baby bottles and Miracle Nipples for kittens
-Small litter boxes
-Clay litter (non-clumping)
-Baby blankets and soft bedding (may be new or gently-used)
-Cat toys (especially crinkle balls and string toys)
-Cat enrichment items (scratching pads, tunnels, tubes, etc.)
-Feeder Supply Gift Cards (so KHS may purchase needed items)
-Amazon gift cards (so KHS may purchase needed items)
Along with supplies, the Kentucky Humane Society is always in need of foster caregivers! Foster caregivers provide loving, temporary homes for animals who need a little extra TLC before going up for adoption. Some may foster one litter of kittens a year, while others foster dozens throughout the year. These amazing individuals help KHS expand our shelter walls, allowing us to save even more lives, and we are so grateful to all of them. If you are interested in being a foster caregiver, click here.
