Four Down

Four of our precious babies are now ready for their forever homes.

Dan, the orange tabby boy, answers to his name. He likes to be called Danny, and #2 Son has fed him noodles, so he really likes them.

Sasha, a brown tabby girl with a couple of calico like spots, is very fun. She plays with almost anything, and gently. When she plays with the tinier kittens, she is almost motherly with them.

Stormfur is a gray tabby boy with one habit that is either endearing or off putting, depending on whether you like this behavior in your cats. He likes to nurse, literally suckle, on earlobes. Also, don't go barefoot around him, if he can't get to your ear to suck on it, he will be glad to use a toe.

Crowfeather is from one of the younger litters, and is black with one white back toe. He is very fluffy and fuzzy, almost like a bunny fur cat (those are few and far between). A snuggler.

I have 8 more coming up for adoption, we have them scheduled for surgeries before Christmas. Anyone want a new member of the family for the holidays?

  1. Awww don't tempt me. Frank's sister (the one who rehabilitates orphaned raccoons and squirrels) was given a pair of hours-old kittens a year and a half ago. They had been tossed in the trash and her son's girlfriend heard and rescued them, and brought them to Theresa. She ended up keeping the both of them (Luca and Sambuca) which each have the habit of sucking. Lucca sucks his blanket and Sambuca needs help in getting the tip of his (now deformed-looking) tail into his mouth for comfort. That's the only behaviour to give a clue that they were not raised by a feline. They're so normal and lovable in every way... a testament to her good care. So I thank you for the love and devotion your give these creatures. It's a lot of work, but they're so worth it. Thank you for that.

  2. Thank you, Hilary. They are worth it. That's why I have never turned one away.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
