Kitten Shower in the Forecast


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — FOX 17 has welcomed Rennala, Rykard & Blaidd to the set! These tiny, long-haired kittens are only a month old and are currently in a loving foster home through the Humane Society of West Michigan while they grow up and become strong enough for adoption.

The kitten’s mother was taken to HSWM with a broken front leg and injury. Veterinary staff worked to treat her broken leg and injury, and she continues to improve there.

While their mother receives medical attention, the kittens are in good hands with their foster family. They receive regular bottles, cleanings and weigh-ins to make sure they stay healthy.

If you’d like to cuddle these kittens yourself, join HSWM for their next kitten shower where the trio will be among the star guests!

Kitten season, also known as feline breeding season, occurs during the warmer months (usually March through October, but varies across the country), and many shelters experience the essential to their consumption of cats and kittens during this period, including HSWM.

The public is invited to celebrate all these upcoming bundles of joy at their next Kitten Shower, Saturday, April 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This fun party will help HSWM support these little babies all summer long. Admission is just a donation of canned kitten food. There is also a kitten registry, listed on the HSWM website at

There will be treats, games and, of course, adorable kittens for all of our guests to cuddle and enjoy.

Bottle welcome

During kitten season, many felines are brought into HSWM, including many litters of bottle-feeding kittens. Without their mothers, newborn toddlers require 24-hour bottle feeding and care. HSWM is unable to provide this type of care in our shelter environment, where the community comes into Game !
