The Sesame Street Kittens were discovered at the bottom of a garbage can where it is believed they were left two days earlier. They had no food or water. The five kittens, three males and two females are recovering and can be viewed on the web at tinykittens. Once they are old enough and healthy, the Sesame Street Kittens will be put up for adoption. Tiny Kittens are making a huge splash Found at the bottom of a trash can, the Sesame Street Kittens illustrate growing problem of homeless, unwanted cats in Langley Mar.
The enclosure is small, but it contains all the creature comforts the growing cats need. At about five weeks old, the three males and two females had been discarded, motherless, without food or water. Dubbed the Sesame Street Kittens, Oscar a ginger tabby and his siblings four flame-point Siamese were covered in urine and crawling with fleas when they were found and brought to the Langley Animal Protection Society foster mom. And the eyes of thousands of others around the world.
Live streaming 24 hours a day, the site has fans across Canada and the U. Applications are already coming in to adopt the Sesame Street Kittens once they are healthy enough to go to new homes. In addition to being infested with fleas, the abandoned cats and kittens brought to LAPS are often hosts to ringworm a fungus or intestinal parasites as the Sesame Street Kittens were and have respiratory infections.
They require veterinary care and high-quality food to help them return to good health. The costs can add up quickly. There are, of course, far better options for people who find that they cannot or choose not to care for a litter of kittens. Prevention, through spaying or neutering, is the obvious choice, said Roche.
Asked why someone would opt to dump kittens to fend for themselves, rather than bring them to a shelter, Roche replied that fear of judgment is a huge factor. Residents were encouraged to bring the unwanted animals to the Patti Dale Animal shelter or text an address where they could be picked up.
Among the 10 cats surrendered on Saturday were two kittens and a pair of pregnant females. The cat is about half way through her pregnancy, said Roche, which will give the foster mom a few weeks to help rid the animal of parasites and improve her overall health with a proper diet.
Through the surrender on Saturday of one un-neutered male and nine un-spayed females, volunteers calculated that the births of more than unwanted kittens will be prevented this year. Roche anticipated the number of surrenders to be higher. She acknowledged it is still early in the season, and said another roundup is planned for July, when she expects people will be overrun with kittens.
That was the case during a roundup held last summer, at least. LAPS can help; we want people to come to us. Web viewers who live outside Langley but would like to make a donation, are encouraged to contact Waldo and Tubbs in Fort Langley.

When it comes to applying for grants, the more information LAPS has about where the homeless cats are living and in what numbers, the better.

Our only options at that point were euthanasia, or to see if it would be possible to treat him and give him a good life in captivity. Since we only choose euthanasia when we are unable to alleviate suffering, and there was a chance we could alleviate his suffering, I brought him home with me to make sure he got the medical care he needed and to make sure he could have a good quality of life in general.
I was thrilled when he eventually settled in and we got a solid routine figured out for his food and meds twice a day. He actually seemed pretty content to snooze the days away on his tiny sofa in front of the fire, and I thought that was as good as it could get for him… Boy was I wrong!
A few months later, he accidentally met a litter of tiny foster kittens… and he just melted! I was astonished as he began to style their hair, smoosh into their tiny bed with them, teach them manners and play like he himself was a kitten. He is teaching me so much, but more importantly, he is a striking example of what these remarkable and misunderstood cats are capable of when we give them the chance to show us.

It also improves the physical health of cats through vaccination so they are less susceptible to infectious disease.
