ONLINE Kittens 101 @ Online Zoom class
Jun 4 @ 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.

CANCELLED Hoppy Hour @ Kitty Corner
Jun 8 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Join us at Kitty Corner in the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo for “Hoppy Hour” and meet some of our wonderful rabbits (and maybe guinea pigs) available for adoption.

Hoppy Hour is a great opportunity to find out if a rabbit would be a good fit for your family. Learn what rabbits need to live a long and healthy life, what type of housing is best for them, what kind toys they like, and much more.

Our animal-lovin’ crew will be on hand to answer all of your bunny questions, so hop on over… you might just find the perfect “bun” to adopt.

People only, please – no pets allowed. No kitty adoptions during this event.
