  • 1.  Kitten season late this year?

    Posted 04-23-2019 08:46 AM

    We seem to be off to a late start here in central Virginia.. I can't decide if it's because we spayed/neutered them all last year (wishful thinking, hahaha! ) or if maybe the polar vortex or something wild with the weather, threw everything off. 

    How is kitten season going for everyone else?

    Ours has also started off slow in NW Indiana, but we know it'll hit us like a bomb when it hits!  We're thinking it's due to the Polar Vortex and cold winter as well, but we won't know for sure until we have survived another kitten season!

    We have on!y a few kittens so far.  It is later this year or, as you said, maybe they are all spay or neutured!

    I foster cats and kittens in NYC and there have been very few kitten pleas so far. On the one hand, it's great! On the other, I miss having some crazy kittens around. Winter seemed a little long this year and it's just recently started to really feel like spring.
