Arrival Story:
I first went to a foster orientation at the Newington Branch of the Connecticut Humane Society and said that I could 'probably' handle pregnant mom cats and kittens. Less than a week later, I was called for my first foster, Miss Kitty Russell. She came here on March 15, 2007. Her four kittens were born on March 26, 2007. 8 weeks later, all were returned to be vet checked and go up for adoption. On the day the last three kittens were adopted, June 1, 2007, I took home a new Mom cat who had two three-week old male kittens. I named this group the Baileys after the movie "It's a Wonderful Life." Where Miss Kitty's Gunsmoke gang was quite a handful and VERY active while Miss Kitty was very calm, Ma Bailey was filled with energy while George and Harry were playful but calm and loved snuggling and being held. George and Harry were adopted over the weekend of 7/6/07. Bailey returned to be spayed and vaccinated on 7/9/07. She was adopted before the weekend. YAY! My Christmas Cats were two motherless brothers--one black and one grey who were found outside and abandoned. They came for a visit on 12/08/07 and I kept them until they were 9 weeks old. I named these beautiful boys Coal Kringle (the black one) and Bing Crosby Kringle (the grey one.) They were lovely with sweet purrsonalities and loved being together. We never found out what happened to their I became Mom. They LOVED their room and did well playing and resting together--and listening to Christmas music-- when they were in there alone. But, I quickly discovered that Phoebe (my forever cat) was not bothered by the kittens, and--in fact--enjoyed watching them. So, when I was home, the two boys came out to play and explore the house. They became used to EVERYTHING about houses--including Christmas decorations and various activities and noises and were very ready for adoption. They returned to the shelter to be neutered on Friday, December 28, 2007 and went out onto the floor for adoption on Saturday morning, December 29. The shelter opened at 9:30 and--before 10:00--they had been adopted together and were taken to their forever homes for the New Year! Mack and Mabel were a brother and sister pair from a surrendered litter of five. They needed a bit of TLC and socializing along with treatments for fleas, earmites, and a slight URI. Bella and Sebastian (Sebby) were a lovely brother and sister who came for a couple of weeks of socialization and extra growth time. My current duo came at 3 weeks and will be with me until the week after Thanksgiving.

They say you shouldn't have favorites, but I have not loved a couple of kittens this much since Bing and Cole Kringle. There is something about being the foster mother to kittens so young that is beyond compare. Tabitha and Aubry are sisters who were part of a litter whose mom began to neglect them and push them away--she would not even let them eat food when they became semi-self sufficient. I was lucky enough to get them at 3 weeks. They are the sweetest girls ever. They were both under a pound and looking slightly underdeveloped when they arrived (Aubry's eyes were not even completely open,) but by 6 weeks they both were up to 2 pounds--and they are both beautiful kittens. They love to run and play together and also do well on their own. They are happy to just stay with me if I am working at the computer and are great about going nite-nite. Their happy, eager faces greet me each morning and brighten up my days.

About My Foster Home:
We foster cats have a room all to ourselves. It is pretty nice here! Our foster mom plays the radio for us every day to get us used to voices, music, and different noises. We get to spend time running around the upstairs of the house a lot. If no one is home, then we stay in our nice safe room and either nap or play together. We get lots of socialization, cuddling, and kisses. We get a lot of visitors and we like them all. At bedtime, foster mom comes in, turns off the radio and big light, turns on the night light, and says, "It's nite-nite time." Then we know it' s time to sleep until the next morning when breakfast comes and the fun of another day of being growing kitten begins.
