Web Video / The Critter Room


"Helping an animal may not change the world, but it will change the world for that animal."
John Bartlett

The Critter Room is an online livestream broadcast out of the Seattle area by John Bartlett, known to viewers as Foster Dad John. Through a local shelter known as Purrfect Pals, he takes in cats that are about to have their litter and raises them on webcam until the kittens are old enough to be fixed, after which they are then adopted out to "forever homes" (usually people who have watched them on the webcam).

The stream shows a 24-hour, candid look at the mother cat raising her litter, and the adorable antics of the kittens thereof. If you want a quick and easy way to amuse yourself or blow off steam, look no further than this. You can tune in here, but keep in mind that there is not always a new family on cam at any given time.

A similar webcast from across the border in Canada is at TinyKittens.com, run by members of the Langley Animal Protection Society.

Tropes associated with The Critter Room include
