  • I love this video but as a cat lover, it bothered me to hear her called a "queen" because she isn't a pregnant momma cat lol.

  • "Spayed at 8 weeks" makes my head go "uh oh" pre pubescent neutering has much costs to wellbeing of said pet, maybe just "vet" your adoptee's a bit better so they can do a post pubescent neuter (but with still absent pregnancies) resulting is a much more well formed and healthier animal!

  • Help!!! I have 2 feral mothers with 10 kittens. I think I'm doing ok so far. Moms are settling down and letting me handle kittens that are 2 weeks. 2nd mother's kittens are only 2 days old. So not doing much except feeding mom. Need any advice out there. Thanks!

  • I adopted a stay cat (by adopted I mean she decided my house was her house and I went with it) and it turns out shes pregnant (~45d). I've been watching your videos and they've been super helpful (thank you!!) but I was wondering if you have any tips on how to prepare kittens for adoption? outside of making sure they're healthy that is, I can't seem to find much on anything other than meeting their needs.

  • Do you have any tips for finding homes for older kittens like 10 months or older. Is because a momma cat has their litter and since then I’ve been helping them. The thing is I couldn’t bring them inside since I still live with parents and they don’t like animals inside the house (I’ve made them a shelter outside). They are so tame and I can pet them as well as my family. The thing is that when strangers come sometimes they hide and sometimes they let themselves be petted. Should I still try to find them homes? Is because I can’t keep them all and I feel my family is getting annoyed with them. Can they still be adoptable? I’ve been trying to find them homes since they were small but no luck. 😞. And some people have shown interest but they don’t call after I tell them about the adoption fee and their history.

  • Do they really spay/neuter kittens at 8 weeks??? I thought that is not beneficial to their bodies. In the UK, the recommended age is around 6-7 months.

  • I’m really looking forward to that future video you mentioned about vetting adopters! I’ve always wanted to open a cat sanctuary (or a cat cafe) that caters to senior cats, but your work with neonatal kittens has inspired me-perhaps I would cater to the very old and the very young 😉 (basically I want to take on the populations that would have the most trouble getting out of shelters alive-if neonates are most likely to be killed, and seniors are least likely to be adopted, it makes sense!)

  • Hello kitten lady, how do I find a foster home for kittens in my area I can really trust to have taken good care of my babie/babies. I trust you as I've watched your videos and can see how loving and dedicated to them you are, I'm not sure my local animal shelter does what you do so do you have any suggestions for me as I really need someone to love and hangout, cuddle and be best friends for each other. Thanks Good job 😊💖⚘🤗👀

  • What's the difference between Spade and Nuturing? Thanks

    Kay KayKay KayYear ago
    • Spay = female (remove uterus). Neuter = male (remove testicles). Although sometimes you'll hear people use neuter to mean sterilization of male and female cats.

  • What’s Microchipped ?

    K BK BYear ago
    • A microchip is a small device implanted under the animal's skin. Each chip has a unique number that is registered with the owner's contact information. If the cat is lost and ends up in a shelter, the chip will be scanned and the owner notified.

  • Thank you, I needed this video. We're been fostering a lot of cats, we currently have 14 but soon 3 or 4 will be taken by some family members thats moving and we're only wanting to keep 5. One kitten though Im worried about her chances of being adopted due to her weirdness. She is smaller than her siblings and she doesnt play much and seems shy and had a delay, when all her siblings, including the late runt, were exposed to kitten food they all ate but her and it took her a while to understand that its food and she seems sorta slow.

March 22nd you posted a video of that adorable fierce baby on IG and said, "Badger's signature move: the BADGER SNAP" - ever since, if I see a kitten do this I call it the Badger Snap (with credit to you & Badger, of course!)!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE BADGER SNAP ❣️

  • Seriously though, even if you're not trying to take care of kittens or get kitten advice, Kitten Lady is always so nice to watch. Her background music, the constant presence of adorable little babies, all of it, it's just so peaceful and calming. Even when she's talking about serious topics, you don't feel uncomfortable or want to click away. I love your videos, Kitten Lady! They always brighten my day. :)
