Dicken & Dolly

Can you believe these two sweeties were left in an aquarium, with their mom, outside of our shelter a few weeks ago? Who would do that? Unfortunately, we often get "dumps" in front of our shelter, and then we're left scrambling to find places for them to go. Adults go to the shelter, and kittens, mom cats, and pregnant cats go to foster.

One of the kittens, Dicken, was born with deformed back legs. They are basically turned backwards. It's hard to explain what it looks like. He gets around pretty well and is getting lots of TLC and even physical therapy from his foster mom, S. He will see a specialist next week so we will know more about his condition and if it is correctable.

For now, enjoy these photos of these two exquisitely gorgeous fluff balls. From the size of their paws it looks like they have some Maine Coon in them. We'll keep you posted on Dicken's progress as we learn more. Their mama, Madison, was camera shy the day the kittens got their portraits taken, but we'll try to add photos of her soon!


  1. Hmmmm, I'm thinking F&F and D&D here look a lot alike. Wonder if there daddy was one and the same.

    I want all four of them! My hubby would divorce me if even ONE more cat showed up at this place. He's so irritated with my Lily right now. She has a sensitive tummy and constantly is throwing up her food. Just when I think I have it solved, here it comes again.

  2. Lisa--even though the kittens look like they could be related, they didn't come from the same area, and D&D are a tad bit older than F&F.

    I'm in the same boat, my DF would "unengage" me if I brought any more permanent furries home, he may let me foster a few, though.
