New Art and New Kittens

I still have the five foster kittens from Woodford Humane, and they are doing great. The little "Ds" were a bit sneezy last week so they have been on antibiotics, but their energy has been full throttle the whole time :)! They are WILD and crazy!

Last Friday afternoon, two more kittens came to me via a fellow cat lady friend. She had been called out to help a man who cares for quite a few feral cats. He had found a sick stray mama cat and five 4-week old kittens at his church (yet another sad story of waht happens when people don't spay/neuter!!!!). He did his best to nurse them all to health but sadly, three kittens didn't make it and my friend could see that the last two needed immediate vet care in order to survive. She took them to our wonderful vet and then brought them to me. Poor tiny babies were terribly anemic from fleas and barely moving. I bathed them, started them on antibiotics and a vitamin solution and syringe fed them off and on all night. By Saturday morning, they were already much improved! And now, they are eating on their own, using their litter box and trotting around happily. In fact, I can't get a good "after" photo of them because they won't sit still. Here is the "before" photo of Bugs and Bunny....

And what is on the table this week? A new hot air balloon! The White Rabbit is about to get POPPED by the Cheshire Cat. Bad kitty!

The "D" family moves into our guestroom....

Yesterday I moved my foster kitty crew from the bathroom into our guest bedroom. I always put foster cats in my bathroom first so that they will feel safe and get to know me in an area where they can't run and hide. When they have acclimated, I move them to our guest bedroom. The kittens were SO excited to be in a new place to adventure around in! They haven't yet figured out how to climb up on the bed, so I put their fuzzy kitty beds on the floor for them. They wore themselves out quickly and all piled in for a long nap. How cute is this scene???

Newest Foster Kitties...Darcy and the Little D's!

I was starting to feel a bit strange about having my foster kitty room empty after Jimmy Choo left us for his forever home. And then I got an email from the Woodford Humane Society requesting foster parents for some mama cats and kittens that needed a quiet place to go until they are ready for adoption. I couldn't resist, so last week I picked up Mama Darcy and her 5 kittens: Daria, Delta, Diamond, Daisy and Dudley. Darcy is SO sweet and such a good mother. She is patient and loving and just wants to be rubbed and loved when I am in the room. The kittens are WILD! They are five weeks old now and full of spunk. When I open the door, they bolt awake and charge toward me in a little herd meowing like crazy. They immediately attach themselves to my socks! It is quite interesting trying to clean litter boxes and get food and water dispersed. I have taken a few photos but it is hard to get them to sit still right now. I am hoping to get better ones soon.

So, without further adieu, here is the furry gang!
