Kittens in Review

MJ and Opie
These two little cuties arrived in early April.  MJ and Opie were not littermates but came from the same feral colony.  Both moved on to loving forever homes when they were old enough.

Bear and Pixie
Five days after Opie and MJ moved out little Bear and Pixie moved in.  Two wee kittens about 4 weeks old.
Bear and Pixie 9 weeks old
These two went to a new home July2nd and by July 5th they were back with Mike and I.  (see Good News, Bad News, Great News posted July 6th).   Within 24 hours a new and wonderful forever home had been found were they continue to grow and thrive.

Juice and Rosie

Juice, Rosie and JJ arrived from the same colony as MJ and Opie but were only with us for a couple of days.  They went to another foster home and then on to forever homes.  JJ was about 6 weeks old and the cutest bounciest little kitten and I'm so happy he was only with us for a few days because I instantly fell in love with this adorable creature.  Juice and Rosie were about 10 weeks old and a rather shy. 

Baby, Bailey Barney and Belle
This litter arrived and stayed with us for a few weeks, then moved to another foster home.  Belle socialized very quickly while the other three were much slower to accept TLC.

July we took in a young cat named Cinder to foster.  A beautiful silky black girl who ended up shedding her foster title to become a permanent resident in our home.  We love her to pieces and she is a wonderful addition.

August saw two more litters of kittens arrive, one litter of four young kittens about 4 weeks old and a second litter of three slightly older kittens.  Unfortunately I have lost two months worth of photos on my computer however, if you go to my post of August 26 Kittens, Kittens and a Cat you will see pictures there.  Both of these litters stayed only a short time before moving to another foster home.

In September had a bit of a kitten break for a few weeks.  Then in mid October Trouble and Gingerbum arrived.  Two very young kittens about 2 weeks old.  As I look back on my photos of these two sweet babies, I get very teary remembering how Gingerbum became ill and had to be helped over the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 22 days.  However, on a more positive note, Trouble found a home when he was about 4 weeks old but he stayed with us until he was 9 weeks old.  He has been renamed Skittles.

Trouble & Gingerbum

All these kittens kept us busy and provided more laughs than tears.  It has been very rewarding to help these dear little creatures.  I love each and every one of them and I always will.

  2. I can easily see how rewarding this is for you. I'm so tempted many times to get a pair of kittens, but have to keep talking myself out of it. Pet Smart here is not a good place to visit. They take in rescues there and today the had a pair of littermates - about 6 months old, in a cuddle pile in their bed after wrestling a few minutes first. I had to get out of there quick!!! I know they will find a home.

  3. Bless you Connie for taking in all those kittens, you saved their lives and now they have loving homes!
