Photo Friday: Shelter Kittens


When I started my shift last Friday at the SPCA, I noticed there were over 25 kittens there. That was the most that I have seen at one time. I took several photos but the kittens were very busy so it was hard to get a good shot. Fortunatly, these two were resting at the right time.

Everybody loves kittens so I am sure they have been adopted by now. It is the older cats that I worry about. Some have been there for too long and need a home.

      I feel so bad when I come in and see the same cat, or cats. Sometimes they are alone in individual cages which makes me feel worse. I want to take them home but often when they are caged by themselves it is because they don’t get along with other cats.

      Kittens are cute but people don’t realize that if they want to find a cat that matches the personality that they are looking for than they need to look for an adult cat because kittens grow up and change.

      You have a great son. I recently saw a 16 year old female that I was ready to take home but found out she didn’t like other cats. I think people who adopt an older cat or dog just so they can live out their remaining life in a loving home are worthy of great respect.

        Yes, he’s very thoughtful. The 8-year-old calico he adopted last year isn’t elderly, but well beyond the kitten stage. As a collect student, it gives exactly what he needed in a cat – love and snuggles. His roommate was jealous and got a cat of his own this year. Although it isn’t as old as my son’s cat, his cat is still a couple of years or more past the cute kitten stage. He wanted a more playful cat, and I think he got just that. Both came from the local shelter, so I was pleased. You’ll be disappointed in me…I was the one that fell for the shy little kitten that hid from everyone. Oh well, all kitties need homes.
