Bulletin Board: Echo Park kittens need a home


Submitted by Amanda

A mother and her 3 kittens moved into our yard in Echo Park a month ago and while they are VERY cute, we need to find them homes. One of the kittens disappeared a couple days ago, so there are 2 left. I think the black and white one is a male since he is bigger than the other one; he is very curious and really adorable. The other one is a multicolored kitty who seems like she would be happiest living her life on someones lap.

It’s only a matter of time before they start breeding, so the clock is ticking! I have already checked with everyone I know, and the only no-kill in the area (Glendale Shelter) only takes cats 1 year or older. They are cute to an insane degree and I wish I could keep them, but I have an elderly cat who despises all non-human creatures.

  1. I have kittens in Echo Park too. Hand raised from two weeks. My neighbor gave me a bucket of kittens she found in the backyard, they were about to die. I have one of four left, the runt of the litter. please email me for pictures if interested. [email protected]

    have your feral cats spayed/neuter at fixnation.com, great people!

  2. I second the Fixnation referral! Their website is fixnation.org – they do homeless/feral cats for free, which is nice when there are multiple cats that can make it pricey to pay for them all. You can of course give a small donation, but still not have to pay as much as you would to have to get them all fixed at a for-profit vet. They will help you trap momma and get her fixed, too, to avoid future litters.

    We have a stray who moved into our yard/porch when she was about 6 months old and went into heat shortly thereafter. I took her there and they did a great job – she is happy & healthy & still lives right by us.

    If they seem fine (other than needing to be fixed) and are not causing problems, I’d also encourage you to let them be, rather than taking them to a shelter. I encourage people to keep no-kill shelter spaces available for cats that really do have no alternative (e.g., a true pet that would have trouble surviving outside and/or does not have an established outside home). Just because they are outdoors doesn’t mean they don’t have a home. Deciding not to take our porch cat to a shelter was the best thing we could have done. 🙂
