Global Warming Linked to Severe Weather, Heat Related Deaths, and now ... Kittens?

Global Warming Could Lead to More Kittens

"Each year it seems to get worse and worse," said Christina Gin, an animal shelter volunteer in Hayward, Calif., to the Hayward Daily Review earlier this month.
She was talking about the shelter's surplus of kittens, a problem that animal shelters across the country face every summer. But lately, it seems that there have been more and more of the furry carnivores.
Ms. Gin blames global warming for the feline glut, and she's not alone. The Humane Society has observed that kitten season, which usually starts in March and April, has been starting earlier and lasting longer.
