Because it's kitten season, precious Piper is just one of hundreds of cats currently looking for homes through the RSPCA Victoria (and countless more worldwide).
“Cats typically breed during the warmer months. After a very hot, dry summer the kitten season is lasting a lot longer than usual," RSPCA Victoria said in a press release provided to The Dodo. "It’s created a real cat problem for us."
That's why the organization is making it easier than ever to give a home to a homeless cat by waiving fees for cats over 5 months old. "The ‘No fees for felines’ campaign has been successful so far," the RSPCA wrote. "We want to keep the momentum going ... giving more people the opportunity to bring a cat into their family and experience the joy that comes with it.”
