I took my kittens to the shelter yesterday. Soon they’ll get their surgeries and shots and go to the kitten room to find a forever home. This foster situation was new to me. I’d never had a cat give birth in my house before and I was happy to have hard-working mama to take care of the babies. My only real job was to take care of Midnight.
I trapped her March 5th and ten days later she gave birth to five cute kittens. We named them Sheba, Blackjack, Misty, Shadow and Ashley. After the babies were mostly weaned, Midnight and Shadow went to their forever home at the Butterfield farm and sanctuary. I kept the remaining four babies until they weighed enough to bring in. Miss Tayunia was there to welcome them and prepare them for the next step.
I will share some final photos of my cute babies. I will miss them, but I know they will have a happy future with their new families. The workers and volunteers at the Montgomery Humane Shelter are my heroes. Think of them when you’re in the mood to make a charitable donation to a VERY worthy organization.
I highly recommend the experience of kitten fostering. I’ve been doing it for 8 years now and I can’t imagine stopping. For now we just have four fat couch potato cats at home and one more batch of pets that I’ve been keeping on the down-low for a while. Want to make a guess what they are?
