Kittens, kittens everywhere — even in your hair! It sounds like the most amazing scenario ever, we know.
However, the sad reality is that there just aren’t enough homes for all the kittens arriving this Kitten Season — the time of year when cats give birth and flood animal shelters.
Rescuers everywhere, in shelters and beyond, like Jacob Meyer an employee at the Great Plains SPCA (above), have their hands and hats plenty full of pussycats, trying to care for each and every one, many of them infants in need of round-the-clock bottle feedings.
We hate to harsh your mellow, feline-lovers, but some of them won’t make it.
So we’re helping the only way we know how, by gathering an amazing group of can’t-look-away cuties (note chatterboxes Oprah, Kelly and Ellen, now available at New Jersey’s Camden County Animal Shelter) for two very important reasons: to ask you to consider adopting a pet from your local shelter AND to extol the importance of spaying and neutering your animals.
