Summer is Kitten Season
Summer is the season of many things, but did you know that animal rescue groups refer to these few months as kitten season?
The felines start feeling frisky during the spring months and by the summer time the kitten population explodes. East Baton Rouge Animal Control picks up about three to four thousand cats every year. Project Purr is one of several organizations working to find these animals homes and they say if you've been thinking about adopting a kitten, now is the time to do it.
"Every kind of kitten. I mean over half of what we have is kittens. We have Russian Blues, we have Tabbies, we have Calico's, ?Torties. If someone is looking for a kitten right now- a certain kind. We have it," says Abby Santini, Executive Director of Project Purr.
