For the second year in a row, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) hosted kitten graduation. And it’s just as adorable as it was the year before. The commencement celebration occurred on Nov. 10, and the little kitties were honored with speeches, a graduate procession where the kittens received their diplomas (seriously, how cute is that?!) and photos of the graduates.
The ASPCA Kitten Nursery, located in New York City, began in the summer of 2014. It takes in mother cats who were nursing (along with their litters), as well as orphaned kittens – basically any kitten who can’t survive on his or her own is welcome at the Kitten Nursery. The “kittergarten” gives the kitties medical care and behavioral rehabilitation before microchipping, vaccinating and spaying/neutering the kittens. During this season, which lasted from May to October, the ASPCA Kitten Nursery took in 1,500 kittens; of those, 1,000 are in safe and caring homes.

So cute, right?
