Arrival Story:
My Mom fosters kitties for Kindred Kitties of Kenosha,WI and I was part of her second litter. My Brother and Sister (that's me with them at the left) got adopted together at Petco, but I was a little sick, so she took me home. By the time I got better and Mom had more kittens to take to Petco, she couldn't bear to part with me. She kept making excuses why she couldn't take me to Petco, and then she finally got off the fence and filled out those adoption papers. It was the best decision she ever made. She has no idea how she ever lived without me.

Bio:
Quincy is the welcoming committee for all the foster kittens that come in and out of the house. (He is letting the kittens at the left "nurse" on him) He's never known the house yet without one or more foster kitties in it. He also has an older "sister" Oreo, who doesn't like him because he smacks her and takes her spot on the couch, and another "sister" Spooky, who he wrestles with and is sure he is going to "take" her one of these days. UPDATE: Quincy now has 2 more sisters to torture. He likes to smack Mona off the couch or bite her on the neck until she moves. He likes to pin Bun Bun down occasionally and make her cry. This makes his Mama very mad because she is so small. Quincy was long and gangly with big ears and a sharp face as a kitten, and I used to call him my "weinee kitty". My husband thought he was deformed. But he has filled out quite nicely. We think he looks that way because he has part siamese in him. He also can be quite vocal like a siamese.

THE SECRET LIFE OF A FOSTER KITTIE AMBASSADOR


HAVEN'T MEOWED IN A WHILE

April 5th 2010 9:04 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

I haven't written anything for a long while. Not that there's not alot to tell, Mama just gets so busy with stuff and forgets to type for me.

Well, we are still fostering and volunteering for Kindred Kitties. Going on our 5th year this June. Don't know what the official foster count to date is, but I'm assuming that it's getting close to 500. Right now we are kinda slow with the fosters as we only have 7, but kitten season is fast approaching. We already have some fosters who have Mama kitties who just gave birth. So kittens will be ready for adoption soon.

Hopefully Mama will let me on the computer more so I can tells you about all the wonderful foster babies in the house. Still have ringworm in the house - three of our fosters still have it and two just got over it. We also have 3 beautiful orange kittens who are 4 mos. old. Should be ready for Petco soon after they get over their colds and eye infections. We got the Mama cat back who is on my page after we sent her to the adoption center a couple months ago. She got ringworm and then stopped eating for some reason. She spent a week at the vet who said she had fatty liver, so we are trying to nurse her back to health. Then we got handsome Jaden (Jade) who also has ringworm and has a head tilt from unknown reasons. We have had him since mid Dec. and are waiting for his ringworm to go away since he already has a forever home with a nice man who adopted from us before.

Well, gotta go beat up my sisters. Oreo has a bad thyroid now and has to take medicine, Spooky has a heart murmur, and Mona is licking off all her pretty fur. Bun Bun has some ringworm on her as does Spooky too. I just had some on my head but it went away pretty quick.

 

WE ARE FOSTERING OUR 400TH FOSTER!!!

Mama updated our foster log last night and realized that one of the 6 kittens we took in on Monday is also our 400th foster!!!
Hip Hip Hooray!!!
We have been fostering for 4 years next month, so we are averaging 100/yr. Sounds like alot, but multiple litters of multiple kittens add up fast. People always freak out when we tell them how many kitties are in the house at any given time (26 right now), but when we explain that most of them are kittens, then it's OK. Or as OK as is gets for most people (crazy cat lady, anyone??).

Well, other than that, we have a Mama and what was a litter of 5 (born in the house) until 2 got adopted on Tues. We have a litter of 4 where 3 of them have 'deformed' back feet. They are turned out a bit instead of being straight. Except for some slipping on the smooth floors, these babies walk (and run) fine. We have a litter of 2 cute little boys who we got 2 wks. ago as 4 wk. olds. We have a litter of 3, and one of them is pre-adopted. The other 2 will go to Petco tomorrow. We have 2 adults - one found outside and one who was being neglected in her home. Then we have the litter of 6, who were trapped under a shed. All are white, although some of them have gray streaks on their heads. They are not real feral, but still hiss and are not thrilled about being held/petted. Another foster has their Mama, but she is not feral at all. She is also white. We couldn't keep their Mama because we already have an adult in the room where the kittens are.

So that's what's happening in Fosterland right now. I could care less. My angle is just trying to get some of the yummy food the babies are getting before Mama catches me.

 

KITTEN SEASON IS COMMING AGAIN!!

It's been a long, long time since I've purred. Alot of things have happened in fosterland that I will meow about now.

Well, we are hoping all the ringworm is out of the house now. The last kitten who had it is going to her new home on Wed., and Mama has already cleaned the back bedroom where they all had it. It is probably in the greater house though since more of us residents than just me got it.

We had a couple of firsts recently. We had our first kitten who lost an eye. His name is Binx and he ended up being adopted by a fellow Catster who already had a one eye cat. He is a happy kitty in his new house and has many new "brothers" and "sisters" - both feline and canine. We also had our first leukemia positive kitty. He was found outside and turned into us. We named him Sampson and he was a very handsome tabby/wht with big green eyes. Mama ended up taking him to a sanctuary in Northern WI. where they have other Felv kitties.

Now that last years kittens have been all adopted, we're pretty empty in the house. We have an adult female who was found outside and is not doing so well. She is hardly eating at all, and she is hissing and growling at Mama, and her skin rolls up and down her back when Mama is in there with her. Mama may take her to the vet this week to see what is wrong with her. We also have a kitty who just gave birth on Wed. to 5 beautiful babies. She was trapped outside but is very sweet. She growls a little at Mama, but Mama can pet her and she will usually start purring. We can't wait until the babies are old enough to start walking around and interacting. Mama just LOVES little babies.

We are fast comming up on a milestone. We have fostered almost 400 cats and kittens!! I will meow when we hit that mark. Mama has also been fostering for almost 4 years. Where does the time go!! Seems like yesterday I was being fostered by Mama and now almost 400 other kitties have come and gone.

Well, that just made me feel old and tired, so I am going to take a nap now.
