"Taming of the Shrew"
Excellent show, beautiful weather, and
a great friend's company for the evening!
sharing fun facts:
I scared the feral mom cat, not sure how, but these two gave me dirty looks and ran to protect her!
is hanging out with the foster kittens and Sparking... I was in here earlier and we played until they literally fell asleep in the middle of it!
is happy to see this little fellow is doing well in his new home!
says, or maybe it's from a room full of kittens!
is going to miss these little cuties when they're adopted! Three will be going soon, two need more growing time.
There are five kittens in this wriggly, cuddly, sleepy pile. We've been fostering a feral mom and her four kittens for 7-1/2 weeks now. We got the fifth kitten when he was abandoned, and the family accepted him immediately. He and two of ours are almost ready for adoption. What an adventure!
... and I dance in the rain.
We all have a purpose!
This is me, every time I drive to the gym... or anywhere!
is missing my girls, DD & DGD.
Our current fosters, a young, pregnant feral cat I caught just in time, who gave birth the next day in our shower. She's been raising her kittens safely in our master bathroom for almost six weeks... what great fun!!!
In a few weeks, after they're all neutered, vaccinated, etc, they'll be up for adoption. Hopefully that will include the mommy too, who is calmer and learning to trust us. Then, we will be ready to foster again.
Being honest can be difficult and scary; but no matter the upset and fallout, it's better in the end to face the truth and deal with it.
& DH are LOVING being foster parents to this feral kitty and her four kittens!
is starting fresh this week.
Happy Mother's Day

is relieved, happy, and proud of our little Mommy cat and her healthy and thriving six kittens, now six days old!
is so happy to be a small part of keeping this sweet mommy and babies safe and healthy!
has been hearing a lot about this giraffe on the internet...

has a budding gaming genius for a GD... she put on headphones, set up the PlayStation and began to play!
has been stuck in grieving emotions that hit unexpectedly hard this year. Getting back on task at last... and doing okay.
