LifestylePets Kittens graduate 'Kittergarten' at NYC ASPCA Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Catgratulations! The latest group of graduates from the ASPCA's Kitten Nursery graduated Kittergarten on Nov. 10, 2015. The program began in the summer of 2014, serving both nursing cats with litters and orphaned kittens that are taken in on a daily basis by Animal Care & Control throughout the five boroughs. Once the kittens are healthy, micro-chipped, vaccinated and spayed/neutered, they graduate and are made available for adoption. Here are adorable photos of the classes of 2015 and 2014.
