WASHINGTON’S FIRST KITTEN KINDERGARTEN

 

Seattle Humane Society Launches the First Kitten Socialization Program in the State


The Seattle Humane Society is making history!Registration is underway for the first ever Kitten Kindergarten training class in the state.Open to kittens between the ages of 8-20 weeks, the course will provide plenty of structured socialization and basic training, such as teaching “sit” and “come.”

 

Kittens in training will be safely introduced to friendly dogs, children, and other new experiences.Socializing kittens will help them thrive and become well-rounded and outgoing adults.Practical topics, such as prevention of furniture scratching and appropriate litterbox training, will also be covered.

 

“Cats may be underrated by people who have never lived with a cat. We want to promote the fact that cats may truly be the smartest animals.  In fact, they are so intelligent that they have convinced many people that they are totally untrainable,” said Brenda Barnette, chief executive officer.“Kitten Kindergarten will help the family and the cat have the most fun together!”

 

Kitten Kindergarten is just one of the many training courses and workshops that the Seattle Humane Society offers to animal lovers.This three-week course begins on June 4 from 7-8PM.Register today by calling (425) 641-0080 or fax the registration form (available at www.seattlehumane.org) to (425) 747-2985.The course costs $50 to attend and will be held at the Seattle Humane Society, located at the junction of I-405 and I-90.
