Kittens in May: The misery of the free-roaming cats
In May one hears again and again about the so-called "Maikittens". However, many animal shelters have reported in recent years that May is no longer necessarily THE month in which all kittens are born. The litter times seem to be shifting overall and there no longer seem to be any fixed, plannable times, not least because cats can litter up to three times a year. The term “May-kitten” no longer fully applies to the reality in animal shelters. It is misery for free cats.
It is crucial that the animal shelters used to know for sure when the first young animals would arrive in order to be able to prepare accordingly. Today the litter time seems to be less and less predictable and therefore presents the animal shelters with an enormous challenge. It also does not seem to be the case that the litters and animals are better distributed over a certain period of time, so that they still come in spurts, so to speak. This means that the capacities in the animal shelters continue to quickly reach their limits during these phases.
Cats are often weak, sick, and malnourished
If kittens grow up as the offspring of cats living in the wild - the "street cats" - they are often very weak, sick and malnourished. Unfortunately, this is true of the majority of cats living in the wild. They are the offspring of non-neutered domestic cats or abandoned animals. Hardly anyone cares about their fate, although they depend on human help: as domesticated pets, free-living cats are no longer able to look after themselves and their offspring completely on their own. They live on waste or the feed that people give them. In the absence of care and medical care, the street cats are often sick, malnourished and injured. They eke out an existence in backyards and empty buildings and multiply in an uncontrolled manner.
Neutering & registering cats
So that this misery does not continue indefinitely, we ask all cat owners: Have your cats neutered, identified with a chip and registered. This is the only way to reduce the number of cats without a loving home in the long term. By castration, the reproductive instinct is suppressed and the associated disputes, disease transmissions and injuries are significantly reduced. And if the cat is also chipped and registered, it can always be clearly assigned to its owner and does not have to share the sad fate of the street cats.

Animal welfare: vaccination and castration campaigns
Many cats living in the wild are very shy and can no longer easily get used to a life in the house and with people. In order to make life easier for these cats, the animal welfare associations affiliated with the German Animal Welfare Association look after the animals at controlled feeding stations. The volunteers have the opportunity to count the cats and check how healthy they are.
During vaccination and castration campaigns, the animal welfare associations catch the animals, provide them with veterinary care, including the necessary vaccinations, and castrate them under anesthesia. The animal rights activists then release the cats in their traditional territory. In this way, the cats living in the wild do not keep reproducing - the vicious cycle is broken.
