Kitten season

Among many factors that contribute to the estrus cycle of female cats, light (that affect temperature) is one. Cats need at least 10 hours a day to stay fertile, which is why kitty season happens during spring or summer.

Cats also breeds faster in temperate climates, and Indonesia is tropical country. We have kitty season all day long, even during rainy season.

This year is particularly bad for us, because monsoon coincides with URI and scabies outbreak in town. Unfortunately, nothing is done due to the lack of animal welfare law.

In the past monsoon, we have taken more than sixty kittens who lost their mother due to illness or traffic accidents. These six kittens were born on top of a waste pool of a pulmonary clinic and subsequently lost their mother. They have no choice but to inhale all sort of diseases and were suffering from many breathing difficulties.

Only three of these six babies survived their critical first month.. We are heart broken to lose so many, but of all who come through our door, we do our best to give them a chance.

Help us help them survive; they only have us:
