Preventing Kitten-Zilla!

Spring is here and that means plenty of new kittens!

Every year we care for hundreds of kittens and provide them with medical care, food, and socialization. Once these kittens are big enough to be spayed or neutered, they get to join our adoption floor! It is so fun to see all these kittens become friends and learn good manners from each other. 

Kittens are easily adopted, but we occasionally see kittens go home all by themselves. While this is not a bad thing, it can lead to some naughty behaviors from the kitten since they do not have enough cat interaction. Kittens adopted as singletons may start biting, clawing, vocalizing, or playing too roughly with their humans. Having another kitten or cat in the home helps them teach boundaries when it comes to playtime and helps create a good routine for the kitten. 

It may seem like you are taking on more work when you choose to adopt two kittens instead of just one, but having a pair at home means they are never without a friend, always have someone to speak the same language as each other, and allows them to have a proper outlet for activity. 

When it is time for you to adopt a kitten, consider adopting two!
