Interested in becoming a foster for @petalliancego? Send me a DM for more information. As you can see from this portion of an email I received from the foster care coordinator this morning, fosters are ALWAYS needed!

Chocolate Thunder will be ready for meet and greets in ~2 weeks and adoption in ~3 weeks. I will confirm his adoption fee but believe it will be $300.

We brought Eloise home from @petalliancego today and reunited her with her baby Pierre. Aren’t they cute?! I am hoping to find a home for these two together.❀️

Aurora went to @petalliancego for a vet check today. We found out she does not have a microchip and she is not spayed. She is estimated to be 8 months old. She tested negative for FIV/FELV.
.
Aurora is now available for meet and greets! If you are looking for a cat that loves to snuggle and is sweet as can be, Aurora would be perfect for you. Send me a DM if you are interested in meeting Aurora.
.
Aurora will be getting spayed either this week or next. She will be available to go home soon after.

Happy adoption day to Irma and Billie! These two are the last of the #hurricanekittens and #jazzysbabies to get adopted. We will miss them but they are both going to great homes with at least one kitty sibling to play with. πŸ’œπŸ±

Remember former fosters Itsy and Bitsy who stared in this cute informative video we made on FIV? Their mom let me know she recently had them retested and they are negative! Congratulations Itsy and Bitsy!
.
FIV sounds scary but the truth is that most kittens who test positive will test negative when retested at 6+ months of age. Young kittens will often test positive due to the antibodies they receive from their mother at birth.
.
Cats who are FIV+ can still live long and healthy lives. Being FIV+ does not mean they will require frequent or expensive visits to the vet.
.
I’ve personally watched FIV+ cats and kittens get passed over in the shelter by potential adopters. Let’s help spread the facts on FIV so more people will consider opening their heart and home to an FIV+ cat or kitten. ❀️

This morning we released community cat Mandy back to the apartment complex to join her friend Fett. Mandy and Fett reside in a safe environment with several caretakers who watch over them and feed them daily. Now that they are both spayed and neutered, they can enjoy the rest of their lives without contributing to the cat overpopulation crisis. πŸ’œπŸ’™

New foster. Meet Chocolate Thunder. He’s ~5-6 weeks old.

Yesterday we went to run an evening Foam Glow 5k at the Florida fair grounds. We saw a very friendly cat that several people were petting. We decided if we were able to locate the cat after the race we would take her home with us.
.
I have no idea how this cat got to the middle of the fair grounds. There aren’t any houses close by. My fear is she may have been dumped. She is extremely friendly and looks to have been well taken care of. We will have her checked for a microchip and proceed from there. πŸ’œπŸ±

One of my favorite long time residents at @petalliancego, Momma, was adopted this week! 😺

When you go to run a 5k and come home with a cat.

Good thing I had this trap in the car from our TNR adventures on Tuesday.

New fosters!
.
Today we picked up baby Pierre and will be picking up his momma Eloise on Sunday. Pierre is ~4 weeks old and not quite eating on his own yet. He and Eloise both have upper respiratory infections and she stopped feeding him. Lucky for Pierre we are fully stocked up on KMR. 🍼

If you are interested in setting up a meet and greet with any of the baby fruits, send me a DM. See my last couple of posts regarding available meet and greet times, adoption cost and adoption process. 🐱

The baby fruits are ready for meet and greets!
.
If you are serious about adopting and would like to meet the kittens to see if one (or two) would be a perfect fit for your family, send me a DM. Please include the kitten(s) you are interested in meeting, available time slot and if you currently have any pets.
.
If you do not currently have a young or playful cat at home, I highly encourage the adoption of a pair.

Update: Billie has an adopter lined up for this Sunday! Just to clarify, Billie was not adopted and returned. She has remained in foster care the whole time.
.
I'm sad to announce that Billie is back on the market. If you are interested in meeting/adopting this sweet and spunky black princess, please send me a DM. 😿

Persimmon is definitely the talker of the group. He has a lot to say and wants you to know it!

Tonight's adventure in TNR...
.
We went back to the apartment complex to try to trap the female cat we were unable to get last time. This time we used the drop trap which we borrowed from @carefelinetnr. We were able to trap her in under 30 minutes. She will be getting spayed tomorrow at @petalliancego. πŸ’œπŸ±

Plum and Currant. πŸ’™ I've had several people inquire about Fig. I wanted to remind everyone not to forget about the two little tuxies Plum and Currant. They are both playful and sweet and Plum is definitely a momma's boy. I often catch him just staring up at me.

It's bedtime for these kittens. πŸ±πŸ’€

My shelter picks for this week are Lou and Momma.πŸ’™πŸ’œ
.
Lou is a large but sweet medium hair cat. He has been at @petalliancego since 10/18. Lou needs to go to a home with no other cats but his previous owner has stated that he is friendly with dogs.
.
Momma is a stunning small 1.5 year old short hair cat. She has been at @petalliancego since 10/12. Momma is friendly with kids and cats. Her previous owner said she tolerates dogs so a home with dogs would not be ideal for her. Momma has tested heartworm+ but is currently showing no signs of having worms. The shelter vet has recommended she be retested in 6 months. Her original test may have been a false positive. Consult shelter staff for more information.

Weighing 1 lb. 9.5 oz., Pomelo is the largest of the baby fruits. He, along with Plum and Clementine, will be getting his first booster vaccine this week. The first booster is given at 6 weeks old and ~1.5 lb. Follow up boosters are given at approximately 8 and 10 weeks old. These kittens will be ready for meet and greets soon! 🐱

Papaya was pre-adopted today! She'll stay with us another couple of weeks while she continues to gain weight, finish up her antibiotics for her uri and get spayed. πŸ±πŸ’œ
