Girls and Boys and looking for homes


So, we have come to the point in this set of fosters that I was not looking forward to. The girls were doing so well and hit size a while back so it really was time to get them to the shelter to find their forever homes. I brought them in yesterday. The staff ooohed and aaahed over them, how good they looked, how pretty they were.. and there was a bit of discussion about just how BIG they were. Both were around three and a half pounds (they should be brought back at two pounds). Oddly enough Mishka who I have always considered the smallest of the bunched weighed more than Verona who I always considered larger. Ah well.. I guess her bones were heavier. So now they are now at the shelter waiting for their forever home/s.

I bought some cat toys from Frieda at the cat show this past weekend.  The cat show was a bit of a disappointment in that there were only a few retailers of merchandise. One being outdoor cat enclosures, another being hand made cat trees and the third being Frieda.  I got a few photos, I might turn it into a blog post if anyone is interested.

As you can see, the toys were a huge hit!!



So now we are on a quest to get the boys on conventional food.  I have a few things to try.  They had one meal of canned food last night and this morning their stool was large and soft, so it is not looking good.  I fear very much these two will have to be raw fed.  I know I should not fear this, as I believe anyone who is willing to take on kitty with a special needs diet to be a class of super adopters that I hope every kitten gets adopted into, but it is about me.. I do not want to be the "crazy raw feeding" foster home that seemingly has a never ending supply of kittens that can't eat anything but raw food..

But in the end, I will do what is right for these two (and no, it is NOT adopting them myself even though I REALLY REALLY want to in a 'lets not take reality into play here' sort of way.  Smed is needy.. he demands a lot of attention and that would not go over very well with my own needy kitties.  They already think I don't give them nearly enough time.

So if you are willing to feed raw food, and you might like a kitty that will buff your face with his cheek and ask that you kiss him until your lips fall off, I so have the kitten for you.. If you want one stocky boy with a round ping pong ball shaped head who likes attention and loves licking toes, I so have the kitten for you.. and if you want them both I will love you forever..
