Who Can Resist A Kitten?

To all my animal lovers out there – listen up! It’s that time of the year again, where countless kitten are dropped off at shelters all over the country due to the mother’s death, breeding within stray colonies, or even irresponsible people. If you can find it in your heart to help you truly will be saving a lil’ life; as every day many of these innocent babies are euthanized. I want to share with you all an email I received from The Feral Cat Initiative here in NYC. I’ve already been able to find one person willing to help in the bottle feeding/foster. Anyone else out there?!

Subject: Emergency Request - Kitten Bottle-feeder needed ASAP

Dear Volunteers,

The Feral Cat Initiative, a program of The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, is being inundated with requests for assistance with still-nursing, orphaned kittens.

There is an immediate need for an experienced bottle-feeder for three 3-week old kittens and for foster homes for very young kittens who are eating on their own.

If you can assist, please contact Valerie at or 212-330-0033 ext. 5

Thank you!

Evon Handras

If you're not in a position to foster or adopt you can do your part by making sure your animals are neutered and spayed!

And through the rain clouds the sun peaked through waving goodbye to the week and hello to the weekend. Enjoy.
