Kitten Season Has Arrived!

To the average cat admirer there is nothing more delightful than a cute, soft, furry batch of mewing kittens. The reproductive cycle of the cat starts in early spring, peaks in late spring into summer, and occurs again in the fall. A female cat can become pregnant as young as four months old, and if her line bears five kittens per litter, three times a year, the family will grow to 420,000 cats in seven years! Cats have become so prolific that there are now over 50 million homeless cats in our nation. Cats and humans have collaborated for nearly 10,000 years. People care for cats and, in return, we get companionship. The new term “community cat” suggests that humans have a responsibility to help control the current excess.
