Every year, Humane Haven takes in pregnant momma cats. These cats are happy to get off the streets and have a warm space to finish out their pregnancy. Our volunteers keep a watchful eye on them to see how they are doing and be there for them after the kittens are born.
We have a couple volunteers who will take in mommas and kittens into their homes and the kittens nurse and get bigger and stronger. As you can imagine, it is a handful to have 6 or 7 baby kittens around, all wanting attention and all wanting to get to know their surroundings! Whatever they need, we’re here for them.
At the appropriate time, all of the kittens are taken to the vet to make sure they are healthy. Not only do they get their shots, but we make sure all of these kittens are spayed or neutered; we don’t want to add to the kitten population! It is not cheap to take care of a litter of kittens, but we do it because it is the right thing to do.
By getting a pregnant momma cat off the street, we are not only getting her spayed after she delivers and nurses her kittens, but we’re making sure the kittens are fixed and find loving homes so they don’t wind up on the street creating more kittens. We try to break that cycle as much as we can.
We do more than provide cats with food, litter, toys and socialization. We’re there for them when they need medical care, rehabilitation, or a warm place to deliver kittens. And we’re there to socialize and care for them daily as they wait their turn to find their forever families.
This is what we do. This is why we do it. But we need your help to continue.
