Protecting, Saving, Safety

You’ve found a litter of kittens outside. Now what?

Tips by Alley Cat Allies:

This week-by-week guide will assist you if you find yourself caring for kittens who are newborn to 10 weeks old. It will help you determine how old the kittens are, based on their physical characteristics and behavior, and how to care for them so they’ll be healthy and adoptable!

Before you do anything, remember—never separate kittens from their mother. If you don’t see her, monitor the kittens from a distance for a few hours. If their mother returns, leave the kittens with her. If she doesn’t, take the kittens inside. Read more at:

Do you realize what it takes to create fur, leather, and other animal-based products? Animals are skinned alive, parts cut off or plucked while the animal is still alive. No anesthesia! Total heartless horror. Unspeakable. See tips here and where you can buy vegan clothing.

  • Cut up plastic six-pack rings, ribbons and packing straps before disposing of them appropriately.
  • Carry a re-useable water bottle and canvas bag for shopping.
  • Choose products that have less packaging and buy in bulk where possible.
  • Reduce the plastics I buy (it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose!)
  • Reduce the toxins I use in my yard and put down my sink, as they can end up in waterways.
  • Select re-usable items whenever possible, re-purpose and recycle as much as possible.
