Well, finally back, and I’ve been sitting on this one for a week just because I loved the title I had in mind. Just another piece of fodder from the Chicago Sun-Times. Apparently we’re going to be overrun with…kittens. Yes, kittens.
Global warming and kittens. While it may seem hard to see the connection between the two — a climate phenomenon that melts glaciers and acidifies oceans, and cuddly, 4-ounce balls of fur — experts say there could be one.
Each spring, the onset of warm weather and longer days drives female cats into heat, resulting in a few months of booming kitten populations known as “kitten season.”
Honestly, there are people out there (other than cat breeders) who refer to this time of year as “kitten season”? I guess it’s right up there with those equally important seasonal periods of El Nino, and Hurricane Season. There’s really not much more to say, it’s just becoming a parody of itself.
