Animal Shelter Invents 'Kitty Bjorns' To Acclimate Feral Kittens To Human Interaction

May 23, 2017


These are a couple shots of the 'kitty bjorns' developed by the Animal Rescue League (ARL) of Boston to help acclimate feral kittens to human interaction and socialization so they can become loving, adoptable pets as quickly as possible. Great, now I want another kitty. I want all the kitties. GIMME THE KITTIES, I LOVE THEM.

"The idea was to have something that allow the kittens to socialize, and be hands-free, thus allowing staff and volunteers to multi-task (answering phones, talking with clients etc.)," Michael DeFina, communications and media relations officer at ARL Boston, told The Dodo. "The design allows the kitten to be flooded with stimuli in a safe way while being constantly monitored by whoever is wearing the vest.

Since ARL started using the vests, the process of socializing feral kittens has gotten so much faster -- so fast, in fact, that now feral kittens are ready for adoption in just 48 hours, and sometimes even sooner.

Honestly, I just one for taking my cat on walks around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, he's so fat there's no way the weight of him wouldn't rip the whole vest and expose my tits for everyone to see. "Which you're totally okay with." They're nice tits, they deserve the attention.

Keep going for one more shot.




Thanks to blue16, who agrees everyone should own a kitty vest.
