This morning I woke up thinking that we should be seeing kittens any day now. January and February are always the quietest months, but in March it seems that things start picking up. I went into the blog archives to see if we were holding kittens on March 17th of the previous years, and discovered that more years than not, we did.
March 17th 2015:
No kittens, just the big cats! But we were still sidelined after the ringworm incident that fall, so even if there were kittens at the shelter, we couldn't have them.
But we had this silly thing to keep us entertained that DAY.
No kittens on March 17th of 2014, but we had an update on Opal the Kitten (not Opal the Human). We were still taking a break because of Filbert's virus at this time, so no kittens for us.
On March 17th of 2013, we had Wylla and Audrey, and they were tiny. We were in the thick of it with Wylla, and trying to get to the bottom of her health issues. She had just returned from spending a few days in Vet Treatment where she got poked, prodded, and tested for everything. It was a hard time for her. And it was hard for us too -- so much worry.
On March 17 of 2012, the Knapps had JUST arrived the day before and we got to meet little Wylie.
Gosh, that nose. Just look at that nose.
On March 17th of 2011, we had the seriously cute Medley family in our care.
No kittens on March 17th in 2010, and Bean was BORED. The Spooners had just left the week before, and the Lytteltons would move in one week later.
On March 17th of 2009, we had the Ashbys. Milton, who was the biggest, was getting close to making weight!
On March 17th of 2008, we were midway through the Mayfield litter. Here's pensive little Porter.
This give me hope, folks. Historically, we usually have kittens in March, so hopefully we'll be seeing them SOON!
FINGERS ARE CROSSED!
