It’s a boy! It’s a girl! No, it’s a litter of kittens! Pets Alive, an animal sanctuary in Middletown is hosting its third annual “Kitten Shower” on Saturday, April 5, from 12 to 4 p.m.

“We are looking forward to having the community join us on this special day,” said Becky Tegze, cat manager at Pets Alive. “With kitten season coming up, we are in need of many items, such as kitten food and receiving blankets that will help us ‘parent,’ Pets Alive style.”

In addition to refreshments and fun auction items, those interested in adopting can meet some of the fabulous felines at Pets Alive. Those attending are asked to help celebrate the kitten shower by bringing an item(s) from the following wish list:

Iams wet/dry kitten food
Fleece no-sew blankets (new or used)

KMR kitten milk replacer
Receiving blankets (new or used)

Non-clumping kitty litter
Small litter boxes

Litter scoops

Cat toys

Cardboard scratching boards/posts

Cat playpens

Gerber Stage 2 baby food (turkey, beef or chicken)

Can’t make it to the shower? You can still help. The wish list is posted on Amazon. Just search “Wish Lists—Pets Alive Kitten Shower.”
