Ky. Humane Society holding curbside kitten shower at Purrfect Day Café

The Kentucky Humane Society is throwing a 6-day “kitten shower” at the Purrfect Day Café to encourage people to drop off donations for cats and kittens up for adoption.

The café, which is located on Bardstown Road, is accepting donations as the Humane Society currently cares for more than 300 kittens.

Accepted items include:

  • Cans of soft paté kitten food
  • Heating pads or microwavable heating discs and covers
  • Unscented baby wipes
  • Small food scales (for weighing baby kittens up to 3 pounds)
  • Small litter boxes
  • Cat toys and scratching pads
  • Feeders Supply or Amazon gift cards
  • Cash donations

Donations can be dropped off June 16-21 between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. Anyone who donates will get a $1 coupon for beverages, snacks, t-shirts, or other items bought at the café.

An indoor kitten shower was planned for March, however, it was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

If anyone is interested in adopting a cat or kitten, the café is conduction adoption interviews. Call Chuck Patton with Purrfect Day Café, which is an affiliate of the Humane Society, at 502-299-9019 or fill out an application at

Cats and kittens can also be viewed through the business’ windows as visitors enjoy a beverage or snack.

“KHS has hundreds of amazing kittens and cats looking for their forever homes,” said KHS spokesperson Andrea Blair. “Every feline adopted from KHS is already spayed or neutered, so they won’t add to the cat overpopulation problem. They are also micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Each adoption also comes with coupons worth up to $250 from Feeders Supply and one month of pet health insurance.”
