Since I last wrote 2 weeks ago, we have had SO many adoptions!
Every single Spartan was adopted (each went to a separate home).
Caroline went home with her new mama.
Maverick went home with his new mama and a kitty from another one of our foster homes.
Miami went home last night with his new family.
Palmetto should be picked up by her new family tonight.
My math skills tell me that is 7 adoptions in 2 weeks!
Adoptions mean there are new fosters in the house! But before you meet the new ones, let me remind you of the 2 fosters you already know and love who are still here:
Sweeney and Ebony. These boys have really blossomed with the change of foster room residents! Can’t wait to introduce you to the new additions!

Sweeney and Maverick have been in the foster room together for about 7 months now. I think you can definitely say they’ve become pals!
I hope we can find these guys a home. They deserve it! Maverick is the gentlest soul. And Sweeney cracks me up everyday with his playful antics. Someone come and adopt them soon!
Uncle Maverick is exhausted from attending the adoption event yesterday! He was alert and engaging with people the entire 4 hours. I was so proud of him for showing off his sweet, gentle personality! Now we’ll just have to see if we get any applications for him!
When kittens nap, they nap HARD. Little Leo wore himself out on Sunday running around and decided that snuggling up with my husband was the perfect way to nap.
Maverick was also napping on the bed. And I noticed he and Leo have very similar patterns on their paw pads! So sweet. And Maverick is SO good with the kittens. He lets them jump on him and will give them kisses on their heads. Such a good boy. We’ve dubbed him “Uncle Maverick.”
The sweet fosters who are currently at our home (in alphabetical order):
She is so playful now that she’s recovered from surgery!
She looks sad in this photo, but really she is keeping an eye on “her” kittens in this photo.
Such a poser.
His fur on his belly is finally growing back! We have decided that his overgrooming was due to the stress of the shelter and then new foster home.
Don’t you just want to kiss that face?? He’s perfectly happy to let you.
I love the asymmetry of his markings!
I’ve had the same foster cats, with no changes, since early April. You’ve already met these guys:
But you haven’t met Ebony. Here he is (the picture is wretched, but it’s the best I have for now. He’s hard to photograph!):
I’ll post his story soon.
And Romeo, Maverick’s brother (remember him?) was adopted, and recently returned. He arrived at our house on Friday. We’re hoping to find him a better foster situation-he is not a fan of other cats, which makes our foster room an unhappy place for him to be. But for now, the kitties are working out boundaries with each other.
The situation was improved slightly last night. I took Henri and Sweeney to Petco! The boys became best friends in the past few months. Photographic evidence below. I hope they get adopted quickly. They’ve both already been in the cages at Petco before, and I don’t want them to have to be there for another few months.
Aren’t they precious?? Good luck, boys!
Just to keep you all up to speed, here’s the current crew:
Maverick, Sweeney and Caroline.
For those of you following closely, yes, Henri was already here and was adopted. He was returned to us last week. Honestly, the family who adopted him was not a good match. Henri is easily frightened by unexpected noises. The family who adopted him had 2 young, active boys. They said when everything was very quiet and no one moved, he was cuddly and wonderful. But like any house with young kids, very rarely are there quiet moments. So he’s back at our house looking for the right family!
These 4 kitties we have right now are so sweet. They all greet me at the door and hang out on the bed with me like you see in the photos. Based on how they behave with each other, they would all do well in a house with other cats. Henry and Annie are also frequent visitors to the foster room with no objections from the fosters. I love this group.
