“The kittens are nine-week old feral kittens that we caught and tamed when they were about five weeks old and they are looking for their fur-ever home,” said Glady Bell, president and founder of the Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society (SCRAPS). “They’re all males except the black ones are females.”
The kittens need to be adopted out soon because there are another 13 kittens that will soon be ready to find their homes too, said Bell. There were eight kittens, but two were adopted out over the weekend.
“So that is why it’s so important for people to spade and neuter their cats,” said Bell. “It’s so we don’t end up with what we have in Moose Jaw and everywhere else — too many cats. This city is overrun.
“A lot of people don’t know, but there’s more and more calls coming in with feral cats and kittens and there is a lot more out there that we just haven’t got to.”
The six kittens are from feral parents. SCRAPS humanely caught the kittens and worked with the kittens for a few days to tame them.
“You’d never know that they’re feral little kittens. They’re just like ordinary little kittens,” said Bell. “They have had their vet check-up and they’ve had their first booster shot.”
The kittens will need two more booster shots, one when they reach 12 weeks old and the other when they turn 16 weeks old. When the kittens are between five and six months old, they will need to be spade and neutered.
