Five Brown Tabbies Growing Up

I received an update from the foster mom:

Here are more recent pictures of the kitties. As you can see, they’re getting easier to photograph but much harder to keep confined to one room! They scamper out every time I open the door!

"I took the pen out of their room over the weekend and put up the jungle gym that was donated to Feline Rescue. Unfortunately, I had to take it apart to get it in the car and I had no idea how it went back together. I ended up with nine left over pieces. The kittens don’t seem to mind!"

Yesterday, before I left for work, I said goodbye to the kittens, counted them and shut the door. I let the dogs in, made sure all four of my cats were accounted for and started to leave when I heard the sound of little kitty feet running. They don’t go anywhere slow! Sure enough, one of them had managed to get out between the time I counted them and closed the door which I thought was pretty much simultaneous. Geez!

Two of my cats are friendly little guys, they’re ready to make friends. The other two have made their feelings clear. They are not impressed. The kittens do well with the dogs. Dangly beagle ears are just too tempting to ignore. A lot of the time they look like they have a growth on their butt shaped just like a beagle!

I’ve started to take them out to play in the living room at least once a day. My instinct says to start weaning them a little from each other by letting them play with me and the dogs.

All in all, they’re a lot of fun.


  1. You are doing such a great job with those kittens, they look so bright and perky!

    PS: I think all kittens should have the middle name of "Houdini"

  2. Foster and the Shelter are both programs of Feline Rescue: unfortunately, the foster parent does not recognize that nor does he/she appreciate the donation. The entry is in need of editing.

  3. Jane - I think you're onto something there with Houdini. It's amazing what they can get into, and so fast.

    Anon - thanks for your comment. I can assure you that the (new) foster caregiver does know that FR has both foster and shelter components, but I could see how the original wording mught have been misconstrued, and so have edited it slightly.

    I think it's so funny that the jungle gym worked fine with nine (nine!) leftover pieces, and I know those kitties greatly appreciated the donation.

  4. Awwww....they are so cute and we just know they will get adopted quickly!! You are a wonderful Foster Mom.

  5. Cute, cute, cute, cute, cute. Looks like they may be getting a bit easier to tell apart.
