Are You Their Mother?

I have 2 kittens at home who I have not yet introduced because I haven’t been able to get a decent picture of them!  They were trapped outside with their mama and are still incredibly nervous and shy.  But mama cat was obviously someone’s indoor kitty and then got dumped!  She is incredibly sweet and friendly.  VERY affectionate.  She was in another foster home with her babies until they were ready to be separated.  Two of her kittens were brought to me and now she’s at Petco charming everyone who comes by to visit her!  Hopefully Annie gets adopted soon!  I would be very surprised if she goes the whole weekend without getting one adoption application.  Any guesses as to what her babies look like?

New Kittens!

I think there’s some rule about my foster room always having to be full!  48 hours after the Spartans went to Petco, I got 3 more little kittens.  They’re actually about the same age as the Spartans.  They came to us from the Leavenworth, Kansas shelter that was filled to capacity.  Very social and playful!  This should be an easy group-they’re ready for spays and neuter so we’ll be getting it taken care of quickly.  Since they’re socially ready to be adopted, we just have to medically get them ready to be adopted.  No sign of any illness, so we should have them on their way shortly 🙂   I’m still working on names for these 2 girls and a boy!

These kitties hold paws too!

These kitties are from a different rescue group, but I loved their story and had to share!  Reminded me a lot of my favorite orange and calico duo 🙂

Let the fun begin!

We have begun our adventure of fostering kittens for the Riley County Humane Society!I want to spend my first post discussing why this particular cause is important to me.  Growing up we always had pets.  They were always some sort of stray or shelter animal.  My parents stressed the importance of taking in animals at shelters who needed homes before considering buying a pet from a breeder.  I’ve always been very aware of animals who are homeless and in need of love and shelter!  My own pets have been a huge source of joy in my life.  I hope by supporting the Humane Society, I give other families the opportunity to adopt animals and experience the same joy I have experienced with my own shelter/stray pets!

Becoming part of the Riley County Humane Society Foster program is an experience I am so excited about.  Fostered animals have a much greater chance of being adopted and staying with their first adopting family.  Fostered animals are socialized, potty trained, and well evaluated.  I am looking forward to getting to know the kittens who will come through our home.  I hope my love and patience will help them to trust humans and become ready for their future family!

Tomorrow, I’ll start introducing our resident cats, Cookie Monster and Mirabelle Fluffybutt.
