The old saying is that it's raining cats and dogs. This Saturday it will be showering kittens. Sort of. This Saturday, May 6, is the 6th Annual Pets Alive Kitten Shower. What is the kitten shower? Glad you asked.

The Annual Kitten Shower is a day of raffles, lots of yummy goodies, the chance to learn about the different programs Pets Alive supports, and you will get to see friends old and new as Pets Alive  welcomes Spring. The success of this event for the past 5 years, has been able to help over 200 kittens every year go on to live happy and healthy lives in their forever homes.

Pets Alive would love for everyone to bring an item from their wishlist. This includes ProPlan or Fancy Feast canned kitten food, Kitten Chow dry food, KMR milk replacement, kitten nursing bottles, paper towels, bleach, and more.
