Need some daily cute? Well you can get it 24/7. Purrfect Pals, an Arlington animal shelter, now has a live feed of kittens, thanks to "foster dad," John Bartlet, who set up the playground for the "Spice Kittens."

The camera is helping to raise money for the shelter, by reminding people to donate to the shelter to help out the fluffy kittens and other cats in the care of Purrfect Pals.

Purrfect Pals takes in hundreds of cats and finds them their forever homes. John is one of many foster parents who watch over growing kittens and cats who need a little extra love. The kittens currently on the kitten cam are the 34th litter that John has cared for.

 

According to the Kitten Cam site, Rosemary, a stray, gave birth to her kittens Oct. 5. She is estimated to be two years old. The two orange boys are Basil & Mace. The buff boy is Sage. The black and white girl is Pepper.

Purrfect Pals says John took his love and passion to an extreme when he created the livestream webcast of his litters where you can watch the kitten antics from day one, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until they go up for adoption. You can also chat live with the other people who are watching the stream.

Purrfect Pals says the webcam has been running for the last few litters and has gained a whirlwind of popularity after being featured on Jezebel.com and on the band OK Go's on their Facebook page. Average viewers jumped from 500 to well over 3,000 in just a weekend.

Purrfect Pals says they have recieved donations of food, money, and toys from all over the world.
