This photo is one I have been trying to catch for a while. It stars Button and Silky, both pets I fostered and then adopted, and they are best friends.
Button has grown up to be less than 5 pounds, bit silk thinks she is a tough little dog. Silky, who I called Boots as a foster kitten, is younger but had grown to be much larger than Button.
On child mornings, I have noticed that Button like to sit on her best friend to keep her toes warm. Silky is very tolerant and in this case they were like this for about 5 minutes. Too Funny!
I had to be a bit sneaky to get the photo since Button usually gets excited and greets me if I get too close. So the photo is zoomed and a little grainy, but still worth sharing.
Misty is ready to find her "forever home. " A bittersweet time for me, proud that they are ready & turned out so well, & knowing I will miss them.
She is a beautiful kitten and will be somebodies best friend. She thinks both humans & small dogs are her people. I would be tempted to keep her but I already "failed" as a foster & adopted her sister Boots. Have to leave room for more foster kittens & I can't keep them all. So if they go to a home that loves them, I am happy.
I am keeping her in my foster care as we look for her new home, which makes me happy. I took this photo so we can put her on the Sonoma Humane Society website on Monday. I don't think I will wait long.
Last week I was in Lake Tahoe for vacation at a Quilting Retreat. No, I don't quilt, but my husband does and I work on my coin jewelry while everyone else quilts. While I was gone, my 3 little foster kittens were being taken care of by Star, who had been a foster for 14 years.
Start sent me this very cute photo and told me her 8 year old grandson had a wonderful time playing with them. Thanks Star, you are much appreciated!
Back off the desk drawers... yep, kittens have to check that out. Could resist taking a photo of these two checking out all out.
The kitten's were busy today playing! It is amazing how the go from helpless babies to playful kittens overnight. Good news, it gave me an excuse to get some cute photos. Really enjoying this...
My foster kittens are 3-4 weeks old now and starting to show little personalities. Little Boots decided to leave her two littermates napping on the couch and come hang out with me. She was adorable giving me little licks on my chin and snuggling against my neck. Being a mommy to a bottle fed kitten is the best!
Before long, Button, noticed what was going on and got jealous. Button is my "failed foster" puppy that is now a full 4.7 pounds at 8 months old. So Button joined the loving session and curled up for a snuggle on my chest too. This definitely called for a "selfie" to share here... I think I better start looking for an adopter for this kitten before she totally steals my heart like Button did! Boots shows signs of being a very special kitty.
Oh my, these are the cutest and softest little kittens ever. At 3 weeks old, they are just about perfect. I have struggled to come up with names this time. I have fostered enough kittens now to have used up my favorite kitten names, so time to start naming them after some of my favorite people.
So, I decided to name the larger Siamese Fred or Freddie. Named after a developmentally delayed man who worked for our family business for 8 years until he died at age 40. Fred was a real character and we still miss him and his simple but somehow brilliant view of the world. I sometimes call this kitten a brute as a nickname because he is so much bigger than the other two, but that is kinda unfair since the kitten is so sweet.
The smaller Siamese has been named Misty after another of our employees that Fred had a big crush on. Fortunately, Misty was smart and kind, as well as being very pretty, so she thought Fred's crush and shyness around her was cute.
The "tuxedo" black and white kitten I named Boots after a cat we had 40 years ago. The original Boots looked very similar and also had long soft hair. I know this is probably an overused name, but it fits her so perfect.
So just hanging out with these kittens and enjoying this perfect age. I know the time will go fast and they will be ready for adoption before I know it.... Only 5 weeks or so to go.
