Kitten care to be focus of webinars

A national cat advocacy group announced Feb. 26 that it will hold a series of free webinars to educate feline lovers about how to care for orphaned tiny kittens.

Alley Cat Allies, based in Bethesda, Md., said the first webinar will be held March 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time. Registration information is available here.

While the group recommends that neonatal kittens, or those up to four weeks old, be left with their mother if she is present and safe, the first webinar will cover steps people should take if they find orphaned neonatal kittens. Topics will include “the basics of feeding and housing and how to identify when immediate critical care is needed.”

The session will be hosted by Rosemarie Crawford, a veterinary technician who has worked in high-volume shelters and large veterinary practices and regularly fosters ill kittens, and Susan Spaulding, who has fostered thousands of neonatal kittens and advises shelters on neonatal kitten care. A written primer on neonatal kitten care is available here.

The announcement comes as animal shelters and rescue groups gear up for the annual “kitten season,” in which outdoor, unspayed cats give birth to large numbers of litters starting in the spring.
