This is a fun one-day seminar focused on saving the two most at-risk feline populations: neonatal kittens, and community cats. Hosted by Monmouth County SPCA, this all day event will feature two sessions with Hannah Shaw, also known as Kitten Lady.
We'll start with a two hour "Saving Kittens' Lives" workshop from 10:00-12:00, which will cover:
An overview of issues impacting cats and kittens
How to set up your home, manage your time, and make fostering fun
How to properly feed, clean, and provide basic medical care to a kitten
How to photograph, advertise, and find adopters for kittens
Self-care and coping with compassion fatigue
How to get involved in your local community
We'll take a 1 hour lunch from 12:00-1:00, during which you can leave to grab a snack, or stick around and watch kitten videos on the screen, mingle with local advocates, and sign up to volunteer with Monmouth County SPCA!
In the afternoon, we'll reconvene for part two, a "Saving Community Cats" workshop which will cover:
Background information about community cats, their behavior, and their needs
Detailed information about why and how TNR saves cats and kittens' lives
Step-by-step instructions on how to safely and humanely trap cats and kittens
How to handle various scenarios including moms with babies, friendly cats, feral kittens, and more
How to provide effective and positive ongoing care to a colony of cats
...and much more, including demonstrations, Q&A, and fun + inspiring videos and content to get you ready to save lives!
We'll also hold a one hour Q&A/meet-and-greet from 3-4, where you can hang out and chat with Kitten Lady!
