22 Kittens Abandoned Outside Vet's Office Shows the Sad Reality of Kitten Season

All cats should be spayed or neutered.

Typically, kitten season lasts between the months of April and September. Even though a cat can give birth to a litter of kittens at any time of the year, these months are usually when shelters see their resources strapped due to the huge number of unwanted kittens they receive.

The @Edgarandivy_catsanctuary recently took in a large number of absolutely adorable kittens that were far too young to be away from their mamas. Watch the following video to really understand the importance of fixing your cats.

"Poor babies.. they look so defeated. They need their mom!," said @MaddyMartin. Viewer @dd2607 added, "At least the babies are safe, but what about poor mama? My heart is broken for all of them." Ours, too.

"The worst part is the mom, or moms, won't be fixed and this problem will just keep repeating over and over, " another user commented. This is true, and the spring and early summer months are when shelters see the largest influx of unwanted kittens. "Thank you for all you do. Places like yours give me hope that there is still good in the world," added @MegPerry. We agree. Animal rescues like this step up when no one else does to help these abandoned babies.
