Meadow has been purring all day! For a foster mom, this is the best...knowing that you've helped bring a little being from terrified to content. #rewarding #moment handmade blanket by @kittenknittin cat bed by @catastrophicreations

ADOPTED! I just got the news that Miss Mew has been adopted and is sleeping in her forever home tonight. #happytears

#MamaMarsh is out of her hiding place! I'm keeping a close eye on her because the vet said "one or two weeks" until B-day.

Guess who purred for the first time last night? #Meadow #FosterKittenDiaryMorning

Yesterday I was so certain that Miss Mew would be adopted as soon as she got to the adoption event that I proclaimed "Adoption Day!" I should have said "Adoption Event Day". I was really surprised that she wasn't adopted right away. What is WRONG with people? Hahaha just joking. Fingers crossed for adoption today.

You would never know that she's blind. #capable #blindNikko

Miss Mew was scared, and I was upset about that. So I consoled myself by buying this totally unnecessary but totally adorable #MinnieMouse cat bed. #retailtherapy #adoptionevent #PetSmartCharities

From terrified to merely nervous in 8 days. #goodprogress #bravegirl #Meadow

Marsh is doing great. When I sit on the floor she comes and sits about 30 cm (12 inches) from me. #rescuecat #mamacat

ADOPTION DAY! I'm excited for her, but I will certainly miss this little lovebug. Here's the writeup I did for her: .
.

Miss Mew is a one-year-old spayed female. Her foster mom says that she is possibly the most affectionate cat that she has ever fostered (and she has fostered nearly 200 cats!)
.
.

Miss Mew loves to cuddle in your lap, purring and nuzzling. She's VERY purry. She has a very calm, friendly and undemanding personality. .
.

Miss Mew will sometimes play a bit rough with your hand when she gets over-excited. When she does this, remove your hand and say"nooooo...hands are for petting, not for playing". She will quickly learn. But until she does, small children should be supervised when interacting with her. .
.

Miss Mew has perfect litter box manners. She has a cute little meow but you won't hear it very often (she's not a "talkative"cat). She's a very happy, playful and affectionate young cat.

Marsh is such a beauty. I wonder what her babies will look like? #fostercat #spayyourpets

Meadow is getting more comfortable with me everyday. She really likes sitting in the canvas "hammocks" on #thecatmod wall by @catastrophicreations

Throwback to Sable, one of Isabella's seven kittens in May 2016. #tb❀

As you can see, #Meadow still has a scared posture. However, I do feel that she trusts me a little more each day. It will be interesting to see if she comes along faster after her sister leaves on Saturday – it often works that way. #rescuecats #browntabby

Miss Mew is one of the most affectionate cats I've ever met. I'm sure she'll get scooped up quickly on Saturday at the adoption event. #purrfection

Remember how Isabella's seven and Cleo's three kittens posed so nicely?

My Valentine Day's tribute to the wonderful adoptive families who have opened their hearts and homes to my precious foster kittens over the past year. #thankyouforadopting #truelove #weheartanimals

How many #fosterkittendiarymorning kittens can you count through my embarrassingly dirty window? πŸ˜… #formerfosters #cleobabies #Isabellababies

She shakes when I pick her up, poor little thing. But after about 10 minutes she stops. I'm confident that she's going to come along well. Any guesses how long it will be until she's confident enough to be adopted?

Kind followers often ask if they could send the kittens a gift. To date I haven't had an Amazon Wishlist because I didn't want you to feel obligated in ANY way. .
.

The nonprofit that I volunteer for provides food and litter, and as for toys and "extras" I am happy to buy those myself. .
.

However, I've been thinking about how good it makes me feel when I'm able to give a gift. And any gifts of essentials would save our nonprofit from having to purchase the items out of their limited funds.
.
.
So I've made a wishlist and you can see the link above in my bio. If the kittens receive a surprise in the mail I'll help them open the box (and you know how they like boxes!) and post a thank you video of them enjoying your gift! 😘 #Willow #formerfosters

TLC for scared little Meadow. She just needs time to believe that she can trust humans again.

Kittens number 20 - 26 of my fostering career arrived on Christmas Eve 2012. Talk about a great Christmas gift! They were an extraordinarily varied and beautiful group, and they were each adopted by friends of mine. Enjoy!

Hey @catastrophicreations, this scared kitty just came out of hiding and guess where she went? To your hammock bed πŸ’• #catastrophicreations #thecatmod #Meadow #blanket by @kittenknitten

Meadow allowed me to pick her up and put her on my lap. At first she was shaking but after about 10 minutes she started to relax. πŸ’•#Meadow #MissMew #RescueCat

After Nikko's group I got a beautiful litter of seven kittens, which brought my 2012 total foster kittens to 26! I'll introduce these beauties individually tomorrow. .

Tikko has been adopted! His #foreverhome will suit him perfectly: he'll be the buddy to a lovely man named Brian who lives alone. No kids to bug him, and no noise or other scary things. And he's going to be an indoor-only cat πŸ‘ His new human said optimistically "If I take him outside it will be on a leash" and I thought to myself "well, good luck with that!" #mindofhisown #gotclawsπŸ˜‚ #fosteringsaveslives #adoptionrocks

I know it's not throwback Thursday, but it's been a while since we've seen Avignon and his dad so I thought I'd post them again. They always seem to get an enthusiastic response. Hmmmm...I wonder why πŸ˜‰#menwholovecats
