this kitten was found outside and brought in by a good samaritan.
🌟New Fosters🌟 I picked up these six kitten babies yesterday! They were found outside and brought in by a good samaritan. They are a little thin and dirty (no fleas thankfully), so I assume something happened to their mother and she was no longer caring for them… normally babies with a mom will be plump and clean. They are around 4 weeks old and only eat a little wet food, so I’m supplementing them all with KMR. Very hissy, but that will change! Three girls and three boys… I need name theme suggestions!! EDIT: names have been chosen! Thank you! @windycityfosters said.
There were SO many great name theme suggestions that are definitely being used later on! But I decided to stick with a nature theme since they will likely be introduced to the lava rocks at some point and I feel their names should somewhat match. The theme I chose: American rivers! Meet kitten Fawn, named after the Fawn River in Indiana. As the friendliest kitten in the litter, Fawn loves to explore and isn’t afraid to walk right up to me. She gives confidence to her more fearful siblings and is already playing a key role in their socialization! @windycityfosters said.
Questions about the river kittens? Ask me about it in the comments and I will do my best to answer them! @windycityfosters said.
Meet kitten Pearl, named after the Pearl River in Mississippi. She is by far the most fearful of all the kittens. She will hiss and spit if I make even a single movement, but as soon as I offer some KMR, she’s puddy in my hands! I have a good feeling food is the key to her heart.🍼🍗 @windycityfosters said.
Meet kitten Columbia, named after the Columbia River in Washington state. She’s pretty friendly, but prefers me to keep my distance. And don’t you *dare* try to pick her up with gloves on or she’ll take a chunk out of them! @windycityfosters said.
Meet kitten Flint, named after the Flint River in Georgia. He’s one of the smallest kittens but he’s got a big voice! He is certain his growls will scare off even the fiercest predators. @windycityfosters said.
Meet Hudson, named after the Hudson River in New York! I don’t have much to say about him except that’s he’s a real sweetheart! Sometimes he hisses, sometimes he doesn’t. I’m still figuring him out… @windycityfosters said.
Last but not least, Meet Rio! Named after the Rio Grande in Texas/New Mexico. He’s almost identical to Flint in both color, size, and attitude! He loves to hide in this cat scratcher most of the time, but I can catch him playing with the toys if I’m quiet. It don’t think it will take long for this baby to warm up to me!
So that’s it! I have 11 fosters in my house… i’ve never had so many kittens at one time. This is going to be interesting! @windycityfosters said.
