The Athens Area Humane Society hosted its annual kitten shower at The Belmont Place on April 25, 2021. The kitten shower, a spinoff of a baby shower, celebrates the shelter’s newest kittens and brings awareness to kitten season, the time of year when cats start to enter their annual breeding cycle.

The venue had multiple interaction pens set up, each with a litter of kittens where guests could play and cuddle with them.

Brunch food, music and drinks were open for guests to enjoy, and masks were required. Guests were asked to bring donations.
