Meet my NEW kitten foster, Frankie!!! He is a 3-5 month old ginger kitten. He has a snipped ear tip, so he must have been a feral that they decided is friendly. He came into the shelter on December 6th, so he’s had some socialization.
He is a sweet boy! He’s purrs as soon as I pick him up, but runs and hides if I put him down. So my job is to make him love humans and look more approachable to potential adopters!
That being said, I’m going to be needing some more food, litter, treats, and toys! Please don’t feel obligated, but everything on my amazon wishlist is greatly needed and I appreciate everything that is donated!!♥️ @windycityfosters said.
Here’s a better view of Frankie! You can see that ear tip better. I’ve also discovered he has tiny thumbs on his front paws! #polydactyl
One of his eyes are leaking so I’m going to try some Terramycin. The shelter told me he had early signs of a URI, but aren’t completely sure. I’m keeping an eye on him. @windycityfosters said.
Relaxing by the Christmas tree.😊🎄
Update on former fosters:
+Buttons has a potential adopter coming tomorrow!!🎉 +My sweet little panthers, Reuben and Johnny, are still waiting at @animalhouseshelterhuntley for their forever homes!! @windycityfosters said.
Happy #caturday! Frankie has sneezed a few times since Thursday so I’m going to pick up some meds from the shelter for him. Other than that, he’s doing great with coming out of his shell! @windycityfosters said.
I want to give a huge THANK YOU to @od_on_dihydrogen_monoxide for donating this bed and hammock!!! Frankie absolutely loves the bed and you’ll often see the hammock being using to make a “cave” so he feels safe. It really means the world to me and the foster kittens. You make their stay with me so much nicer. While I’m spending my foster funds on food and litter, it’s things that I can’t often buy like this bed and hammock that make the kittens comfortable and happy. Thank you again for your kindness!!♥️♥️♥️ @windycityfosters said.
This kitten has two activities: Purring and sleeping. I have yet to find a toy that he enjoys playing with! Catnip doesn’t faze him and strings don’t catch his attention. All he wants is to lay in my lap while I pet him. But hey, I’m not complaining! Having a calm kitten is nice for a change. @windycityfosters said.
Happy Tuesday!😸 @windycityfosters said.
Frankie is much more social and comfortable than he was last Thursday. He will purr and run up to me when I walk into the room, meow at me when he wants to eat, and no longer runs and hides when he hears loud noises. He still isn’t ready for free roam of the house, but he is very comfortable in the foster room!
His cold was very short-lived! He’s still on meds for the next two weeks, but I haven’t heard a sneeze from him for a few days.♥️ @windycityfosters said.
Yes!! I finally got him to play!😸 ___________________________________________

Frankie’s getting more adventurous… I’m going to hope he doesn’t decide to climb my 12 ft Christmas tree! I have the ladder handy just in case!😅 @windycityfosters said.
