Well I’ll spare you the long story, but we’ve acquired another litter of kittens. They belonged to a guy and his 11-year-old daughter who were nearly homeless and finally got the money together to fly back to New Hampshire where their family is. The girl’s mother died when she was a year old, and the only thing she’s had in her life is this cat, and the kittens that are now about 5 weeks old. They knew they couldn’t take the cat and kittens with them, and they didn’t have any idea what to do with them. The girl was heartbroken.
So JW and I agreed to take the litter. We weren’t sure how we’d manage it with the two kittens we already have, but we really couldn’t say no while there was something we could do to help. And we knew it would mean the world to the girl.
I picked them up yesterday afternoon. Momma’s name is Loco, and there are five kittens – two black/white, two black, and one fluffy gray. They all have bob tails 🙂 We put them in a large dog crate in our foster room, and it looks like it’s going to be a pretty good setup. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we can start adopting them out!
So yes, I’m absolutely insane… but it was the right thing to do, and I don’t regret it.
