ONLINE Kittens 101 @ Online Zoom class
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Are you a first-time kitten guardian or has it been awhile since you’ve had a kitten? Best practices of kitten care have evolved. Confused by the dizzying array of toys, food, and litter?  Is your kitten hiding or biting you? Learn how to alleviate problem behaviors like jumping on the counter and scratching furniture. Socializing kittens is an important part of their education. This is an hour online class using Zoom, so a good internet connection is necessary. Not sure about Zoom? We’ll help you get set up before the workshop starts.

Prizes

There are 13 full pages to win (the cover and each month). There are three categories: dogs, cats, and other domestic pets like birds, reptiles, guinea pigs, etc. The top fundraiser will be awarded the cover, with the next four spots from each category being awarded a Pet of the Month page.

All proceeds from entry fees and votes will help us provide shelter and care for the animals at Marin Humane.
