Kitten Season is here – so it’s im-paw-tant to help

Warmer weather and longer days mean Kitten Season is officially here and your local RSPCA NSW shelter needs your help. 

What’s Kitten Season? When the weather starts to warm up, cats go on heat, give birth, and flood animal shelters across the state with homeless litters.

Feline intake by shelters increases by 400 per cent – and it is often a result of owners not desexing their cats or letting them roam freely outside.

Every year, RSPCA NSW cares for thousands of unwanted cats and kittens.

In fact, the Sydney (Yagoona) RSPCA NSW Shelter admitted over 9,500 cats and kittens during Kitten Season over the last three financial years.

What can you do to help?

RSPCA NSW has put together a list of what you can do to help our feline friends during Kitten Season.

Practise responsible pet ownership

You can practise responsible pet ownership by desexing, microchipping and keeping cats indoors to ensure your feline friend is safe, happy and healthy.

Through this, your feline friend is less likely to become lost or injured, catch diseases like FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Donate to RSPCA NSW

Donations play a huge role in helping rescue, treat and rehabilitate animals across NSW. Donations ensure that RSPCA NSW staff are able to adequately care for the influx of cats and kittens that come into the shelters during Kitten Season. To donate to RSPCA NSW, visit RSPCA NSW’s website here.

Become a foster carer with RSPCA NSW

RSPCA NSW will provide all food, medication and kitty litter. Kittens are returned to RSPCA NSW shelters for desexing and vaccinations and are ready to be adopted into a loving family. If pet foster caring sounds of interest to you, you can express your interest today at
