Well, she's the expert in all things fostering. I trust her judgement! :-)A very, very sweet sequence of pics. I love the last one - the surprised kitten tail - "Wait, I'm getting a BAFF????"
such a sweet moment to see... Charlene is just something special to be sure!!!
YEAH - Charlene is such a good foster sister. We love the first picture - kinda looks like "ummm...what is that??" MOL
The perfect Mother's Day card!!!!
The Bean was born to do this! She also has to be thrilled with a more manageable litter.
You have the ultimate fostering cat.
awww...Astrid looks sooo tiny itty baby..she was like.."mmmhh..should I?should I not??.. oh well, let's do it!!" Charlene must be thrilled to have such a lovely cutie baby around her...
Looks like "Queen" Astrid has learned that she's one of the minions now... a very lucky minion of Queen Bean!
What a great series of pics!! The Bean really is the best eh??
What more could Charlene ask for than an endless supply of adorable kittens?
AAAAAhhhhhh! Thud! Falling over from the sweet! And JUST what I needed before a 300 mile drive :)
Bean must be a unique character! The way she deals with every new kitten pack - unbelievable!
So cute! Charlene seems so inviting to all the kittens you foster!
Aw lookit da kitteh! Such a sweet itty bitty kitty! <3 <3 <3 Makes me smile. Yay Charlene Butterbean, Foster Mamakitty! <3 <3 <3
I'm sure that no one who reads this blog NEEDS to watch this, but still....http://tv.nytimes.com/2011/05/07/arts/television/my-cat-from-hell-on-animal-planet.html?src=dayp
Aw, I spy some kitten-smooching! It really does seem like Charlene knows, on some level, that she was in these kittens' position as a bitty baby bean and wants to be sure they get plenty of TBC (Tender Bean Care). Or, maybe she just loves kittens, and who could blame her for that?
my heart melted!!! (as it does with many of the posts here) But this is the sweetest!!
i love that she is so confident in her kitten-wrangling abilities that she doesnt even pull a paw out from under her when she makes contact. :)
Bean has the patience of a probervial saint. I think almost everyone else here would snatch up the kitten for a cuddle, but she waits until THEY are ready and make the first move. I think that humans, as a species, can learn from this.
not surprised by the cuteness, but caught off guard that it has been TWO WEEKS... love the shots, thanks.
Awww, so sweet! Kitty kisses! Charlene is so wonderful with the babies.
Quarantine time flew, this time...And this is a beautiful sequence and perfectly timed for this weekend.Miss Charlene will be able to devote much more attention to teaching proper kitty hygiene and manners to the Easterbrooks.
What exquisite patience The Bean has. No wonder every single itty bitty falls in love with her. And I love your description of how each litter, and itty bitties within the litters, have their own reactions to Charlene. I'm sure it never gets old for any of you. Bless your hearts! xo
Ms Bean is such an amazing cat. I don't think I've ever seen one so patient with so many new litters. Funny how she waits until they get close enough to feel comfy and then she cleans them!!!!
Charlene is such a sweet cat. We love how she is with the kits.
Miss Bean is such a wonderful foster Meowma! Love the photos of her and Miss Astrid touching noses.
