Leave MY Litter

We know your heart leaps (awe!) when you see a litter of kittens (ours does, too.)  Our first concern assumes they are abandoned. This thought can lead to to want to move them or take them to a rescue or shelter (where cats do not cope well). So wait! Join us in holding off on that initial Good Samaritan impulse. The normal mother cat spends most of her waking hours AWAY from the kittens (often in the process of moving the pediatric group from one location to another) and remaining in the area of her litter. Kittens that are not dehydrated, are being cared for by her appropriately (including occasionally moving them) with the critical disease-protecting, nutritious milk and warmth. Don’t hover in the kitten’s area, but do check back on them. Kittens NEED their littermates and mother for appropriate life-long protective, elimination, and kitty play behaviors.  Follow the guidelines on the flyer.

 

During the late Winter and Spring ABC Clinic, City of Waco Animal ServicesM.A.R.C.,Comm C.A.T. and HSCT are promoting “Leave MY Litter.” 

 

Here are the steps to help pediatric kittens thrive WITH the preferred care of their own caring mother lurking nearby.

Testimonials

I am VERY satisfied with everything. Leo was kind of scared at first, but he has calmed down after getting him home. We couldn't believe the prices and everything that is included with the procedure, and everything was so helpful. The staff is soooo nice and was very explanitory about the post-op procedures and what to do in an emergency. Thank you ABC Clinic!!
