We’re having fun on our Instagram account with a brand new hashtag: #fridayfelinefinery. Wear something cat-related on Fridays, post a photo of it to your social media, and use the hashtag! It’s just for fun and a great way for us to show our feline pride.

New to Fostering Kittens?

posted in: Education, Fostering | 0

Maybe you found some kittens. Maybe you answered the call from a local shelter or rescue group. Maybe you don’t have any kittens yet but you’d like to try. Whatever it was, welcome to fostering! One great resource to answer just about any question you might have is Kitten Lady Hannah Shaw’s website.

Her site is full of articles, infographics, videos, and more to help you with every aspect of fostering “bottle babies” – neonatal kittens without mothers that need human help around the clock to help them survive. Topics include Getting Started, Assessing Kittens, Feeding Kittens, Bathroom Business, Physical Health, Behavioral Health, and Preparing for Adoption. She has recorded webinars, too!

Thank you for stepping up to help tiny kittens who need us to help them survive and thrive. =^..^=

Flatten the Kitten Curve

Jennifer will be participating in a webinar tomorrow dealing with reduced spay/neuter opportunities due to the coronavirus pandemic and ways to help stem the tide of kittens coming into shelters. If you would like to register for the webinar you can do so here.

“Join a panel discussion with Dr Julie Levy, Hannah Shaw (the Kitten Lady), and Best Friends Animal Society’s Aimee St. Arnaud and Marla Browne to hear ideas on what you can do now, including:

• Getting the public involved in spreading the spay/neuter message while everyone is home to hear it and where to find customized materials

• Sharing easy, virtual fundraising ideas to raise money for spay/neuter subsidies

• Taking your community cat program and caretaker support to the next level

• Messaging to the public for leaving stray kittens with their moms until fixing later

• Reframing how we react to requests for help from the public to allow us to save more kittens than ever by empowering finders of strays and fosters and linking up spay/neuter and shelter intake diversion programs”
