Global warming could mean more kittens
Of all the weird results of climate change, this one is probably the cutest: Warmer temperatures and shorter winters could lead to longer breeding seasons for cats. That's not great news for cats, however, because many of those kittens end up as strays.In 2007, pet adoption organization Pets Across America warned that more and more kittens were popping up in shelters across the country, a trend they attributed to longer summers. Because cats are warm-weather breeders, shorter winters mean less of a lull between litters. The solution is simple, according to Pets Across America: Spay or neuter your cat, and they won't contribute to kitty overpopulation, regardless of season.
