So kitties, it's time to talk about da birds and da bees. What? I can hear y'all cringing. This is an education blog folks. Don't worry though, we're strictly talking about cats.
We'll leave the human stuff to the school system, late night premium television, wink, "Game of Thrones", and the bowels of the internets.
Folks have been asking for days, weeks, perhaps even months.
"When are you getting kittens?"
"Where are the kittens?"
And then the straight up demand.
"I want kittens!"
Don't worry, nature has heard your cry, and I'll tell you when and why you're going to start seeing these little fur balls shortly.
The 'when' is spring/summer. Basically heat = kitten babies.
The why is pretty simple when you think about it. Unaltered mommas and poppas are running the streets looking for mister or misses right. All those single lady cats go into heat about three times a year usually starting in January/February. Two months later out pops a litter of kitty babies. Yep. And there you have it.
So hug yourself in knowing the kittens are coming. In fact we've already had a couple litters come and get adopted. Again, I can hear you.
"But, what about me? I want a kitten!"
Reel it in Veruca Salts*.
Don't worry there shall be a kitten for all! Perhaps even two for each of you!

Wanna get involved? Foster a litter of kittens? Listen to the meows and chirpy chirps of kittens? Clean up the absurd amount of poop they produce? PERFECT! Check out this link below:
We could always use more capable foster parental units to lend a hand or two.
*Veruca Salts is a character from the magical and wonderful musical that should be seen by all, called Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. If you haven't seen it, well, you have two options. If you live in San Jose, drive down to Powell's Sweet Shop on Lincoln Avenue. They play the musical on a continuous loop. Or buy the darn film!
