Mama kitty and kittens

See the end of the blog for news on a spay/neuter clinic.

Mama and her two babies are in their new foster home - we're waiting for names and will post better pictures as time goes on.

Mom was tested for feline leukemia and fiv and was negative. She is long haired brown tabby torti. She's a very responsible mom, keeping her babies well fed and clean. She gives a mild 'hiss' when you first approach her but gets up to rub all around your ankles and purr and she is fine with her babies being handled.

Mom also is cross -eyed - it is a very cute look!

Mom isn't in the best of shape - her long hair is greasy and dirty. It is tough to take care of yourself when you are booted out the door to survive on your own. Hard to feed yourself much less have time for grooming between rain and mud.

The two babies are just opening their eyes. One is a female, she is an orange tabby. The other is a male, a brown tabby. We think the girl will have longer hair like mom but can't decide about the little boy yet.

Spay and Neuter Clinic

Pet Haven is helping to sponsor a spay/neuter clinic through KindestCutMN. It will be held in N Minneapolis on Friday, July 29.

Do you know of anyone in Minneapolis who is in need of having their cat or dog spayed or neutered to end the cycle of litter after litter?

Please, pass this information along!

Help us find families who would love to keep their pets but who cannot afford this surgery!

If you are interested in volunteering for clinics like this, let us know that too.

Help with check in.

Help with transportation if the family has few resources.

Help by making a donation towards spay and neuter through any number of rescues, humane societies and www.MnSNAP.org and www.KindestCutMN.com.

Click here to fill out an application to volunteer through Pet Haven. Fill out the volunteer application and submit it online.

Only by working together, can we solve the overpopulation problem in cats and dogs.
