|I just thought I would show off my little foster family. Mama Celeste was left in a cardboard box at the pet store I manage with a very odd story and two little boys just a few days old!
I had a minor freak-out when I got them home. I've raised dozens of bottle bubs but never had a nursing mama before. Well, I have to say....having Mama around is SO MUCH BETTER! No late-night feedings, no stimulating them to potty, etc.
I've got them set up in a big dog crate for now (we live in a loft, so there's no spare room) and the boys just started opening their eyes yesterday! Hubby has started to talk about Celeste maybe staying on permanently...and I do love her, but if she stayed we would be at capacity and I'd have to give up fostering, st least for awhile, so I dunno. She is young, beautiful, and VERY loving, so I think she will be easy to adopt out.
(Pardon the scattered litter, I did clean up immediately after this shot, but I couldn't resist her expression!)

Jasper tries to be a good foster dad to Comet!
Comet has the same grey "beauty mark" beneath his nose that Celeste has!

Finally, the whole family!
