My friend Lynn won with the most original way of saying it: “You are taking in a teenaged mom!”
Here is Glitter.
I fell in love with this very young mama cat at a local animal shelter but couldn’t take her home because she had just had kittens who needed to grow up before they could find homes of their own.
It occurred to me that I once fostered kittens back in the day when I worked for an animal shelter. Why not foster this mom and baby crew and have the added joy of watching her little ones get big?
That’s how we came have them with us for now, and I foresee more cat-related posts in my future. I suppose if you don’t care for felines you can consider yourself warned. Cat pictures like these will be here often.
If you do like tiny ones, though, then by all means stay tuned.
They have all gained about an ounce in the past 3 days which is more than 10 percent of their body weight. The big guy tips the scale at 10.5 ounces today.
May you know the joy of squeaking kittens and dimpled kids like my Q giggling over miniature claws as they tickle his legs.
