New foster! 💔
This morning, bright and early, I received a text from a good Samaritan I helped out a few months ago with a orphaned kitten asking for help again. This tiny little calico and her siblings have been hanging out by her house for a few weeks but she has not been able to grab any of them, until this morning. Since this kitten is clearly not feeling well she didn’t run, so she was scooped up and placed in a carrier, then delivered to me. She’s emaciated, weighing 1Ib at 8 weeks old, that’s half of what she should weigh, has a kitty cold, eye infection, anemic from fleas and was cold when she arrived. Once she warmed up, I cleaned her face and she ate some food. She’s been napping for 4 hours and purring while occasionally making biscuits too. I think she’s feeling safe and probably a teeny tiny bit better already. ❤️ @tiny.paws.fosters said.
Little one had her face cleaned, has had a few small meals already and is enjoying being warm and cozy on a clean bed with a heating pad. ❤️
A few have asked about her siblings and mom on the previous post and I can assure you they will all be spayed/neutered at the very least, but my plan is to trap the remaining three kittens and either foster them myself, or hopefully, find another foster to take in a few as I already have several fosters here. Since the location is over an hour away from me, that will be this weekends adventure! In the meantime, the good Samaritan has assured me those kittens look healthy, aside from wormy bellies and are eating the food she’s leaving out for them. @tiny.paws.fosters said.
Someone woke up VERY happy this morning! ❤️ She has baked so many biscuits, hasn’t stopped purring and is feeling better than yesterday. @tiny.paws.fosters said.

This sweet little kitten is doing so much better. She’s slowly putting on some weight, eating well, has started to use the litter box, is grooming herself, constantly purring and loves to snuggle. She’s even meowed at me a few times for attention which is the most adorable little meow. 😻 Once she has finished her antibiotics and is no longer showing symptoms of a kitty cold she will be able to meet the others. ❤️ @tiny.paws.fosters said.
Reunited and it feels so good! ❤️ Everyone is doing so well and has settled in nicely. They are eating, drinking, using their cozy beds and almost flea free (capstar and revolution is doing it’s thing). @tiny.paws.fosters said.
This sweet little kitten is currently at the vet because despite eating well, good potty habits and feeling much better than she did last week, she is still not 100%. Today she will have an exam and potentially some bloodwork to see if there is something else going on that we need to address. ❤️ @tiny.paws.fosters said.
In the show the characters nickname is Sugar and it fits this sweet little lady so well. She’s sweet like sugar, loves to snuggle and will jump into your lap any chance she gets. @tiny.paws.fosters said.
Natalie (and her siblings) have been doing so well and are scheduled for their surgeries this week after which they will be available for adoption. ❤️
There’s a few things happening “behind the scenes” that I will be posting about today and tomorrow since yesterday was a busy and fun day (it was my birthday!) and I didn’t get a chance to post anything! In the meantime, we are completely out of dry food – so please consider donating if you can. I’ve also added some new toys for the kittens because we are running low on those as well. Thank you for your support! @tiny.paws.fosters said.
