Kitten Sitting..


Well at this point there are no kittens at the shelter for me. A friend of mine is fostering for a different rescue and she has kittens but she is going away for the holiday and asked if I wouldn't mind taking over her kittens.

I was very hesitant to do so.  See her kittens are very scared and two are still in that feralish stage.  They are past the age when I feel I can properly give them the attention they need to come to accept humans, so I very much wanted to say no afraid I'd become too attached, but I really wanted kittens.  So I came to the decision that it would do them a world of good to go from one safe environment (where they were) to another (where they are now) and back again. So I agreed to take them on the condition they go back to her as soon as she gets home.

So meet the visitors..  (images all blatantly stolen from Wendy's facebook account since they haven't really come out for me to see yet)

Keith - boy
Sonsa - girl
These two are more outgoing.  I've seen both of them come out from under the couch while I was in the room. I can eventually touch both of them.  The other two have plastered themselves behind the couch. I have yet to see them on the web cam, but I'm sure they came out and ate last night.. if I don't see them today I'll force the issue tonight, just to make sure they are OK.

Brina - girl
Area - girl (and a tortie with splashes of white)

  1. Look at Keith's "froot bat" ears. LOL. Adorable.

    I'm in love with Sonsa, such beautiful colouring and markings. Oh heck, they're ALL just too precious for words. Good luck kitten-sitting.

  2. I was startled to see kittens today when I checked the Drop Cam! They were quite active at 4am (your time) I can tell you! :)
    Hopefully being with you will do the shy ones some good...fingers crossed! I didn't realise there were 4 though. 3 at most I think I've seen... :(

  4. I didn't know you have a kitty cam! That's so cool! I've always wanted one so I can spy on the ktities here when we're not home. I read in a book about a lady who had a cat cam that she look at on her phone.

    These kittens are beautiful. I hope all goes well and they start to feel more comfortable.

    1. the drop cam (linked above) has an app so I can watch them on my cell phone. I can also watch them online, and share the link so others can watch directly..

  11. They're adorable. Changing their environment, even for a short time, might help, so that's a good idea. And you're the best kitten-sitter we know!

  13. Aww, they are cute and I'm glad you accepted the challenge, Connie. You can work your magic on them as you did with Faraday, Max and Allie.

  15. they are very cute. don't suppose you have any tips for dealing with a 5 week old feral kitten found in the middle of the road? It has been taken to the vets and is fine but my friend now needs to look after it.
