From People for Cats...
This week our cat of the week is kittens. Kitten season is well underway and we are starting to get some sweet and lively kittens available for adoption. We presently have a variety of adorable kittens ranging from all black, to black and white, tabby/tiger striped, tortoiseshell and tuxedo. Some of the kittens are short hair and some are medium hair. Basically, we will have all varieties of colors, dispositions and temperaments.
Our kittens are cared for in foster homes with volunteers who spend time socializing them and getting them used to interacting with people. Each week they are brought to the shelter for adoption hours. Kittens are usually ready to be adopted into “fur-ever” homes after they reach 12-14 weeks of age, have been neutered or spayed, micro-chipped and had their first visit to the veterinarian.
While kittens are cute and adorable, please remember that they do require a fair amount of work, time and responsibility. Also, when adopting kittens, you are entering into a long-term commitment of approximately 15-20 years. Kittens are usually adopted in pairs to provide them with a companion and aid in their socialization. For you, this means double the fun, with two playful bundles of fur engaging in all sorts of shenanigans.
If you would like to visit with our kittens or some of our equally lovely adult cats, come in to the shelter at 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket. We are open to the public on Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hotline: 508-540-5654, press #0 if you have cat related issues, questions or for further information about People for Cats, press #2 if you need financial assistance for veterinary care for your cats, or press #3 if you have a cat or kitten to surrender.
