Tree House Showers Kittens with Love


I am the special guest at the 3rd Annual Tree House Humane Society Kitten Shower, Sunday May 20, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Bucktown Branch (1629 N. Ashland Avenue).

I will answer your kitten or cat behavior questions, and also offer information so you can purchase my ebook, “Good Cat!” (available wherever ebooks are sold), $2.99. Certified cat behavior consultant and author Pam Johnson-Bennett contributed, as did legendary actress Betty White.

There aren’t many behavior issues not covered in “Good Cat!” from all sorts of litter box issues to cats scratching in all the wrong places, to cats biting at people or other cats, to one cat smitten by Justin Beiber.

Also, enjoy games, a naming contest, tasty snacks, and spending time with the adorable kittens! Like a new mother, Tree House is in need of supplies to care for kittens coming into the shelter during kitten season. Please help with much-needed supplies. Here’s a sampling of items that the shelter can use:

*Kitten formula
*Canned and dry kitten and cat food
*Baby food (meat only – no onions)
*Kitten toys
*Kitten nursing bottles and nipples
*10cc syringes
*Pet-friendly wipes
*Washcloths, towels, and blankets
*Paper towels
*Non-clumping cat litter
*Small litter pans, uncovered
*Stainless Steel Litter scoops
*Scratching posts
*Nail clippers and brushes
*Small stuffed animals (especially “beanie baby” type)
*Gift certificates to pet stores
*Monetary donations for larger item purchases (cages, carriers, scales, etc.)
*Sponsor a spay/neuter surgery! $35 will pay for surgery and first round of vaccines

Also, although there is no pressure to adopt, many won’t be able to resist – and that’s not a bad thing.
