I love it when rescue organizations get creative to save cats and kittens, and the Humane Society Silicon Valley’s Kitten Rental Program is a wonderful rebranding of the organization’s existing foster program. On their blog, the organization lists all the reasons for this program, beginning with “because something in the bay area should be affordable to rent,” followed by “three words: tiny little poops!” The program’s goal is to provide home to more foster kittens. There is no “rental fee,” and participants receive all the supplies necessary to care for the kittens. For more on the Kitten Rental Program, visit the HSSV blog.

Didga and Boomer are two of the most adventurous kitties I’ve ever seen. In today’s video, Boomer is going surfing (well, skimboarding to be accurate.) Ruby says she would like to try this sometime…

Have a great weekend!

3 Comments on Mews and Nips: Kitten Rental Program Saves Lives

  1. Love the kitten rental program! The video of the cat in the water I am uncomfortable with. Showing cats in sand and water and being buried in sand, albeit briefly, puts bad ideas out there. Burying animals in sand or dirt is very dangerous. And some cats would be very, very uncomfortable at/near/in water. Conscious Cat readers are responsible cat companions, but videos circulate to others. Ask them to at least edit the burying clip; a request from you, Ingrid, will be taken seriously. As always, love your site.
