New Foster Furbabies


This week has been a busy one. I got a call from the animal shelter 1 day after adopting out the last cutie pies to see if I would be willing to take in 3 furbabies that were coming out of their spay/neuter operations. Of course I said yes. They are from 3 different litters but seem to be adjusting to each other.


This is Jordan!  He is a long haired Grey and White Tuxedo.  He is a spitfire!  Wild, Wild, Wild.  He was found under a car in the parking lot of the shelter.  His whiskers had been singed by someone.  He is slowly opening up to us but is very possessive of food and toys.  I also think he was taken away from his mom to early and wasn't weaned properly because he keeps rooting in my hair for a nipple.  Poor little guy!

This is Oliver.  I wonderful Orange male Tiger.  He is very loving and purrs constantly.  He is the last of a litter and may have been overlooked because he is reserved.  He is going to make a wonderful lap kitty for someone.

This is Daisy.  I was told that she is a munchkin.  She is 5 months old and smaller than the other 2 kitties.  She has short legs, a smushy face and little ears.  At first I thought she was quite strange looking, but her personality makes up for that by a mile.  She loves to be held but doesn't like Jordan's barrage of hyperactivity.  She acts like a Queen and I imagine if she could talk she would have a British Accent.  Look at those beautiful Gold colored eyes.  She was left on the shelter doorstep in a box.  Really people!  It's cold out!
I hope they find homes quickly so they can get lots of loving!  I imagine that they may have been Holiday gifts and not wanted by the recipients.  So very sad.  My job is to nurture them until they can be placed in a loving home and that is exactly what I plan to do.  Happy Weekend and Happy Stitching!

It is true that people just don't think when they give a puppy or kitten for Christmas. These three furbabies are so precious!
I know it won't take long for them to find loving homes.
Have a great weekend Nataly!

They are adorable! I would have a house full of cats if I could. I think it's great that you are a foster mom for them : ) Blessings, Shirlee

What a fabulous job you are doing.
My Sister, BIL and I are involved with a cat sanctuary/charity and I cannot believe how cruel human beings can be :(
My DSIS and BIL had several cats of their own, fostered some teeny kittens from the shelter and now have 8 cats - half of which have a disability of some sort!

I would love to foster, but Yes Dear won't let me have another cat in the house. She's very territorial. Yours are adorable. I don't know if I could let them go after fostering them. I'd fall in love instantly, lol. Hope you enjoy having them, the little stinkers. (They're all little stinkers, lol.)

They are beautiful. You are such a wonderful person to take them in and find homes for them.

Bekca said...

How could anyone abandon such beauties? I think you are such a wonderful person for offering your home to these gorgeous kittens. Best wishes.

Oh I do love this little bunch!
I meant to ask you before this. How does Daisy take to all the kittens coming and going?
