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.
