Kitten season is here and in full swing! What is kitten season, you may ask?

Kitty season is the time of year in which the feline breeding season begins and as a result, many litters of kittens are born. Kitten season typically takes place in the spring and summer months, anywhere between April to October, during the time of year when cats go into heat.

During this time, shelters are flooded with mamas and babies. Kitten season is said to be one of the most challenging times of the year for shelters, receiving up to hundreds of cats and kittens each year.


  • Female cats can get pregnant as early as 5 months old

    Which is why spaying and neutering your pets as early as possible is SO important

  • A cat pregnancy lasts about 2 months

  • Litters can range from 4-8 kittens

  • Female cats can have more than one litter through one pregnancy

    This means if a female cat meets multiple male cats on an encounter, she can get impregnated by all of these male cats, resulting in the birth of multiple litters of kittens with different fathers all at once

  • Cats can have multiple litters in one year
