NKC Kitten Nursery Conference

Missed the first NKCKittenNurseryConference? Don’t worry! You don’t have to wait until 2022 to find out what you can do now to learn about kitten nurseries.

Are you wondering what the latest trends are in kitten nurseries? How to set one up when you don’t have a facility in which to house it? Or when your facility or staffing situation is less than ideal? What happens to all those kittens when a human or kitten pandemic (like panleukopenia) hits? This hit Conference from the National Kitten Coalition will give you all the tools you need.
