Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

How sweet betteb.  Kayla is a gem in her own right.  Thanks for filling in the blanks.  I'll have to remember to check the stream out tomorrow if I can.

That's wonderful!  There doesn't appear to be a live feed right now, so I'll keep checking back to see the new little babies.

Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

Just did a quick scan of the relative FB pages trying to catch up bit.  It is hard to believe that three of the Palindromes are being speutered today.

Marp....So good to see you!...Yes, it looks like the males were neutered, but I'm not sure if the females were spayed yet?...I haven't seen much of Eve when I have checked in lately, although I'm aware, from reading the "chatters," that the whole apartment area is now open to all of them.

 

I'm anxious to hear about the adoption applications that they have received so far, especially for Eve, as I would like to see her adopted with one from her litter...I'm hoping that all of them are paired off for adoption.

 

betteb...I'm happy to see that you have found your way to the new forums...I've now added Taylor to my "watch list" and just noted that she gave birth last night!...I'm missing our Sloaney and still check for updates on her...She really captured my heart!

 

Waving to Topaz Gem...Happy to see you made it to the new forums also!

 

SeaGal...I would definitely get in touch with the rescue group that has helped you in the past...I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing that those precious cats are not being cared for and there is also serious health concerns to be considered regarding your cats also, since they are in contact with them...So, please contact the rescue group...Isn't your neighbor in agreement with this?

Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

I also posted this on betteb's Taylor Swift Kitten thread in pets but wanted to make certain no one missed it.

 

I interrupt this thread for a burst your heart (grab the tissues) message from the Godfather of kitten cams, Foster Dad John (FDJ):

 

 
 

The first thing that people typically think about when they hear that someone is fostering kittens, puppies, etc. is “cute fuzzy babies!” It’s hard not to feel like rainbows & flowers when you’re looking at a tiny creature that only recently came into this world, still unable to care for itself.

 

For the Foster Care Provider, we feel the same way, but we also face a world in which the skies occasionally darken. It’s not easy fostering animals - you dedicate many hours of your own time, pouring a little of your very soul into each tiny creature, only to say goodbye to them a couple months or so later as they are adopted into what we hope to be a good home. Then there are times that the foster is too sick or too weak and despite our best efforts pass from this world.

 

Sometimes, we’re told to distance ourselves to prevent from being hurt - but that’s not possible, and we couldn’t even if we tried. People foster because they want to make a difference for an animal, to give them a better chance at finding a home to live out their lives with love & contentment. To best prepare the fosters for such a future, we have to spend time with them, interacting with them, showing them that it’s okay to trust people, to love people - which wouldn’t be possible if we kept our distance.

 

Fostering is chock full of rewards though! Watching the animal open their eyes for the first time, taking their first steps, learning to run before learning how to stop - the milestones of their development met. Watching a semi-feral transition from being extremely fearful to curling up in your lap to sleep, watching the eyes of their adopters light up when they first hold their new family member.

 

They fill our lives with glee as we take care of them until the day comes when we say goodbye - a day that is always bittersweet. For the first time fosterer, they look into their heart & soul, to see if it is strong enough to endure it again. If they find it so, they start the process anew. For some, their heart couldn't bear to part and they adopt their fosters - we dub them "Failed Fosterers" but there's never any malice in it for we secretly wished we could adopt all of our fosters.

It is my pleasure Jessa.  I'm happy to see so many interested in these kitten foster families.

Wonderful News!...I just read from the chatters tonight that Rhodes was trapped today and Shelly has a room all set up for him until the Vet can check him tomorrow...Rhodes is the feral cat who has a terrible condition going on with one of his eyes...picture and story is on "people for happier cats" and LAPS has been trying to trap him for a while now!

 

Also, they got Quark too...Sloaney's sister, I believe, and Dr. F. will spay her tomorrow!

 

I just had to log on and share this with all of you...I'm getting ready for Shelly's return to hear the great news and updates!

Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

Thank you so much for that wonderful news Wildflowers.  I can't wait to check out more information but darn, I just got my computer back today and I'm still working on getting everything back in order.  Hopefully tomorrow I can spend the day with kitties and now cats too.

 

Did Shelly make another forest?  Will there be a cam?  I'm sorry, I'm kind of out of it right now.  I can check for myself.

 

Thank you again.
