Animal Update: Kitten Season

(KCBS) – Each year, we talk about kitten season – when shelters become full of orphaned or otherwise surrendered cats.

“With longer days come a change in hormones in almost every species, and especially cats, so what we see are people finding litters or kittens and orphaned kittens in their backyards or their parks and they’re bringing them into the shelters,” explained Jennifer Scarlett, DVM, co-president of the San Francisco SPCA. “Which is the right thing to do.”

“If you find orphaned kittens, please bring them into the SPCA, we’ll find them a good home,” she continued.

“If you have a cat, please get them spayed or neutered or if you hear the telltale signs of cats about to make kittens, let us know and we can help you with that too.”
