Meadow is like a kitten in a senior's body, say workers at Bobbi & the Strays' Freeport shelter. When she's not trying to sleep or sit on someone's lap, she's playful beyond her 14 years. (Aug. 21, 2012)(Credit: Newsday/Ellen Yan)

Bobbi & the Strays' animal shelter

Kitten season was supersized this year, and shelter officials across Long Island blame an unusually warm winter for an early start to breeding. The Northeast this year had its warmest seven months on record, climatologists said. At Bobbi & the Strays' no-kill animal shelter in Freeport, rooms, corners and aisles have been converted into emergency housing for kittens.
