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!

If you’re in Kansas and want to meet the Spartan girls, you better hurry up and make your way to Petco in Manhattan. The way they were rolling around playing and wreaking havoc the second I put them in the cage last night, they won’t last long. Families won’t be able to resist their spunk! Here are a few of the last photos I have of them. Such joyful, active kittens! Although I took the most photos of them while they were napping-they were too hard to otherwise capture on camera! They move so quickly!

The Spartans were successfully spayed on Saturday, and they are now just waiting for space at Petco to open up! They are really going to miss their surrogate mama cat, Caroline.
I think Caroline’s going to miss her babies too!
The vet just called our cat coordinator. It turns out that Leo, Alphie and Maron are GIRLS! Whoops. And since spays take much longer than neuters, it looks like they’ll be going back on Saturday. They are going to be very displeased that they have to go another night without food!
I’m debating on whether or not to keep their names as is. Because the fact is most adoptive families change kitty’s name anyway. For consistency in records, I think they’ll be keeping their boy names.
I am still laughing about the phone call. And it’s going to be hard to stop thinking of them as boys!
I can’t wait to get home tonight and cuddle with them and laugh at them. Who wouldn’t want to snuggle with this little one?
The Spartans are off to the vet today for neutering. How did they grow up so fast??
Good morning foster mama. Are you serving me breakfast in bed?
What??? No Breakfast?? It’s bad enough I didn’t have food in my bowl allllll night long. Now you’re going to deprive me of breakfast? What is the meaning of this?
Look here, lady. If you think I’m going to let those people anywhere close enough to accomplish THAT, well then you’re just mistaken.
Lots of yummy treats afterwards, you say? I think I can be convinced. But don’t forget the tuna!
DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR??
Yes, Leo, we get the message. You want dinner on a silver platter after surgery tonight. Not a problem. Although the way this usually goes, you and your brothers will be running around like nothing has even changed. Crazy kittens.
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!
