Is it just me or do they look as if they're tired of their sabbatical? I think they're ready to get back to work.
I try to tell them it's a good thing when there are no cats in need of fostering, but, you know, they're cats and they only hear what they want to hear.
Ha! Truth. Wylla's look in the first pic is pure gold.
Love the comments about cats hearing only what they want to hear. So very true.
the pictures of Bean and Wylla "holding hands" is so perfect!!!!! thank you!
I love the pictures of the sisters holding hands!Laurie, how old do new kittens have to be before you can foster them?
Technically, any age. Everyone who fosters has their area of expertise and preferences. Some like the neonate bottle feeders, some like mamas with babies, some like under-socialized kittens. We prefer ours around 3 weeks or so when their transitioning from bottle to solids. Anything younger than that requires getting up TOO many times in the middle of the night for feedings, and I'm getting too old for that!
So does the shelter separate the kittens from the mom at 3 weeks so they can be socialized? Or do you just get the kittens from a mom that has either abandoned or is struggling?.
They always try to keep moms and babies together as often as possible. nSometimes they'll take babies from moms if she is acting aggressively towards them, or if she's not able to feed them on her own. Usually, they come into the shelter as orphans because they were found that way, or because mama's human wants mama but not the babies.
Don't know which is cuter? Wylla with the tiny grey cat or those lovely white gloves so dainty and pretty?
so much floof! :)
I love the last picture of Wylla with her "kitten"
My personal favorite also!
Do you have a source for the maker of those adorable felt cats pillows? Thank you!
They're made by a local company called Three Bad Seeds. They sell on Etsy.
It is the same -- your girls are great!
Not bad company to keep at all :)
Heavens to Murgatroyd! Them cats is hep. Can they swing?
I only know one other person on this earth that still says heavens to murgatroyd!
I especially love the sixth photo down - I never saw Wylla looking so golden! What a pretty girl she is! And I too prefer the three- to four-week-olds for fostering, mine right now are JUST about ready to graduate from the bathtub to the bathroom. They graduate when they are big enough to jump out of the bathtub!
oooooooooooooh the grumpy looks in the first photos !!! too funny!!
