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.
