Adopt a Kitten in Jacksonville Florida

Allow us to introduce you to six cute kittens that will be put up for adoption beginning at 8 weeks of age. Today, they are a bit over 4 weeks of age. They are currently located in the suburb of Mandarin, Florida. Please note that this original blog post was published in June 2014. The kittens and their mommy were picked up by the Jacksonville Florida Animal Care and Protective Services. All of the kittens were adopted with the mommy cat entering the Wild Whiskers program in Duval County. If you are interested in adopting a kitten or adult cat, please check with your local animal care or rescue facility.

The pictures of these sweet little kittens show them at 3-4 weeks of age. These six kittens came into our care on June 20, 2014 when we found them. We first spotted the pregnant white mommy cat on May 20, 2014. By June 1st, it was apparent that she had given birth to kittens. We couldn't believe such a beautiful cat could be a stray. After observing the mommy cat for 4 weeks, we were determined to find the kittens and rescue them and the mother cat.

MEET MOMMY CAT

We photographed the pregnant white mommy cat on May 20th. You can probably see that she is a petite cat and relatively young. She is possibly still a kitten herself and most definitely is under two years of age.

It is important that kittens stay with their mommy cat for as long as possible. These kittens have the benefit of mommy 24/7 in a clean and safe inside environment.

The mommy cat is quite attentive to her kittens and nurses them several times a day. I surely couldn't imagine trying to provide the same kind of care to six kittens throughout a day.

When you compare the photo of mommy cat taken on June 24th with that photo of May 20th, you can see she is pretty much a kitten herself. She is a beautiful cat with a sweet disposition. She has a fabulous white fur coat with orange and black calico markings on her head, face and tail.

SUPPORT MOMMY CAT AND HER KITTENS

The mommy cat and kittens will be in our care until they are adopted. It will be another four weeks before the kittens can be put up for adoption. July 25th would mark approximately 8 weeks of age for the kittens. We are hoping to raise enough funds so that we can provide the spaying and neutering of the kittens and mother. Won't you help us? Please help to support the mommy cat and six little kittens during their care. Give through their GoFundMe page.


ADOPT A KITTEN
