someone found a 4 week old kitten outside without a mom and she needed a foster home.
Introducing my new kitten foster! She doesn’t have a name quite yet, but I’m brainstorming. Here’s her complicated story: On Sunday, I got an email from the foster coordinator that someone had found a 4 week old kitten outside without a mom and she needed a foster home. I agreed, of course. She called them back, but they said they LOST HER. A few hours go by and I’m trying not to think about what happens to tiny kittens who are alone outside at night. Thankfully they call back and say they found her again, but “changed their minds” and want to look into another rescue(??). Well, all the other rescues are full (surprise surprise), so the guy decides to dump her at the shelter and leave without giving any background info. I picked her up a few hours after that. She’s chubby, she’s clean, and she’s friendly which makes me think that the “we found her outside alone” story was a lie. Nevertheless, she’s safe with me now and I’m thrilled to have her! She’s a fluffy little spitfire and I already love her to death. Welcome, little orange fluffball!
Thank you all so much for the wonderful name suggestions! I decided to go with Marigold. I think it suits her well!♥️
I love how Marigold thinks she completely bamboozled her “prey” despite the fact the she was stalking it in plain sight. Good job, tiny predator! 😂

Marigold is drying off after her second butt bath of the day😣. Here we go again with the poop problems! I don’t think I’ve ever fostered a kitten that didn’t have diarrhea at some point. Since Marigold was found outside, I’m pretty certain that it’s parasites. I started her on the three Ps—panacur, probiotics, and pedialyte. Hoping her loose stool clears up quickly.🤞🏻
Marigold and I are super excited to be a part of @petcofoundation’s #catweek! We’ve got a ton of fun things planned…stay tuned for a giveaway launching on Monday! This week is all about how you can #BeALifesaver to shelter cats and kittens by adopting, volunteering, donating, and fostering!
