PART 2 of 2 - The four-week-old City Kitties are learning to eat off a plate. Every foster mom has their own technique for getting little ones to start eating solid food…I prefer to wipe a little bit of wet food on the roof of their mouth and let them chew and swallow it down on their own. In a few days they will all be eating off the plate. They're still nursing and that is their primary source of food right now but over the days and weeks to come they will be nursing less and eating solid food more. #fosterkittens #kitten #spayandneuter #ilovecats #stopdeclawing #excellent_kittens #catstocker #animalsco #newbornkitten #kittycat #petstagram #kittensofinstagram #catsrequest #instacat #meowbox #cats #kittens #thedodo #bestcats_oftheworld #catsofinstagram #animalsco #cuteanimalshot #cutekittens #babies #cutepetsclub @cats_of_instagram

It's these quiet moments in the middle of the night that I spend alone with my fosters and tell them how much they're loved and how I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure they never have to suffer a day in their life again that I cherish the most. #BunnyTheKitty #fosterkitten #fosteringsaveslives #fostermom

As a foster mom, I am constantly asked if I'll be adopting my fosters. My short answer is that I have two cats and two dogs and I'm at my limit for permanent residents. The more I adopt, the less I can foster since I have limited space in my home. I love and care for all my fosters as if they were my own and when they are healthy and neutered/spayed I will make sure they go to loving forever homes. Each one takes a piece of my heart with them when they leave. Is it hard to say goodbye? Yes. Do I cry when they leave? Yes. But, I need to say goodbye so I can welcome another kitty into my home when they need me. If I kept every cat I loved and felt a connection with, I'd have hundreds of cats. So when the time comes, I will say goodbye to my fosters (including Bunny) and the next one will be waiting for me. Until then, I'm loving every precious moment I have with them. #fosteringsaveslives

Best way to spend a Friday night πŸ’™ (PS - foster and you'll always have kittens around) #TheCityKitties #fosterkittens β€’ β€’ β€’ It's an amazing experience to watch these babies grow, but the heartbreaking reality is that 1.4 MILLION cats and kittens (just like these babies) were euthanized in shelters last year. If you want to experience kittens being born, foster a pregnant cat. If you want tiny ones, there are motherless babies who need fosters. Otherwise, please spay/neuter your cat. There are so many cats in shelters now that sadly won't make it out. #fosterkitten #kitten #spayandneuter #ilovecats #stopdeclawing #excellent_kittens #catstocker #animalsco #newbornkitten #kittycat #petstagram #kittensofinstagram #catsrequest #instacat #meowbox #cats #kittens #thedodo #bestcats_oftheworld #catsofinstagram #animalsco #cuteanimalshot #cutekittens #babies #cutepetsclub @cats_of_instagram

Mama Aspen and her 4-week-old babies. We started wet kitten food for the first time yesterday. Raleigh really liked it, he even started to bite the plate to try to eat more. The other four mainly just stepped in it. All prefer nursing over kitty food. #TheCityKitties β€’ β€’ β€’ It's an amazing experience to watch these babies grow, but the heartbreaking reality is that 1.4 MILLION cats and kittens (just like these babies) were euthanized in shelters last year.

UPDATE on the blind tabby cat in Roseville, CA that I posted the other day. Several have stepped up to help, but @jynnx7 has taken the lead. The blind cat has not been spotted yet but there are 15–20 other stray/feral cats in this particular mobile home park. One was found (the beautiful calico on the right) and @jynnx7 quickly trapped her and is getting her medical attention. She said this girl is friendly and not feral. @jynnx7 is going to #TNR all these cats and is funding this on her own. If you would like to assist her financially to offset these costs, please send her a direct message. #trapneuterreturn #spayandneuter

UPDATE: Exciting news to share about the Georgia ferals that are being cared for by 19-year-old Britini. Just got off the phone with the spay/neuter clinic. They preform neuter surgeries on ferals Wed-Friday every week. One of our Instagram friends (Julia) is spending her day off tomorrow transporting traps round-trip from Alpharetta to Covington so that Britini can start trapping. So many people have been involved in making this happen. Thank you to everyone who has sent food and supplies to Britini, loaned traps, transported the traps, made phone calls... this couldn't have been done without you. I have created a You Caring account and the link is in my bio. The clinic is charging us $40 per cat and that includes an ear tip and rabies vaccines. We don't know exactly how many cats we have but we know there are at least 20. If you would like to donate to help cover the cost of surgeries, your contribution is greatly appreciated. The money will go to my account and I will call the clinic each day and render payment. I will also collect a receipt and post the receipt in the fundraiser account so everyone can see where their donations are going to. (PS - in the photo are new food and water dispensers that have been placed at the location site so these kitties will have fresh food and water thanks to you and Britini.) #TNR #TrapNeuterReturn #feralcats

Roseville, California - BLIND STRAY CAT NEEDS HELP! This really breaks my heart. Someone is feeding the cat but it needs to be trapped and taken to a vet/shelter/rescue. The local SPCA won't assist and the neighbors are at a loss as to what to do. I know the three blind kitties I trapped and fostered a few months ago all had very painful infection in the opening of their eye sockets. This poor kitty likely has the same thing. Please help! #BlindCat #Sacramento #straycat #pleaseshare

Look at this amazing art work of my sweet Bunny girl done by the very talented @feralesteva! I started crying when I looked at it (I know, I'm an emotional mess today). Seeing it literally took my breath away. Beautiful Bunny brings me so much joy every day and is such an inspiration to so many. @feralesteva has also kindly offered to sell this art and 50% of every sale will go to spay/neuter the feral kitties in Georgia! (The other 50% covers materials and shipping.) Send her a direct message if you'd like to purchase a print! #BunnyInspiresUsAll #BunnyTheKitty #fosteringsaveslives #fosterkitten

UPDATE: I have happy tears in my eyes as I write this post. Thank you for all the generous support for the Georgia feral kitties that 19-year-old Britni (@queenbritnasty) is caring for! A ton of packages arrived containing food and supplies so that Britney can continue to care for the 20+ feral cats living at the abandon property next-door to her. This is how sweet this girl is…not only is she caring for all these cats alone, but she was worried about her mail carrier because she knew the carrier would have to carry all these packages to her porch. Now we have to get the cats trapped, spayed and neutered. Several have stepped up to transport (thank you)... I sent an email to a TNR there in Covington, Georgia and have not yet heard back. I will be calling a local neuter clinic tomorrow since they are not open Monday/Tuesdays. We DESPERATELY NEED traps! If you are anywhere in the area and can loan us some traps, please send me a direct message. We need to get these cats trapped and neutered ASAP because kitten season is coming and this colony does not need more kittens. Once we have traps and surgeries scheduled, then I will start collecting funds for surgery from anyone who would like to donate. Thank you again to everyone for your generous willing spirit! #TNR #HELPNEEDED #trapneuterreturn #covingtonga #spayandneuter #feralcats

Calling on our cat-loving Instagram friends for help! It's not too often that I put out a plea, but this will take a group effort. One of our Instagram followers (@queenbritnasty) reached out to me. She's 19 years old and caring for a colony of 20+ feral cats at an abandoned property on her own. She provides them with fresh food and water and has even bottle fed babies. Sadly, she recently found a little one in the road deceased after being struck by a car. These cats keep reproducing so @leslieherchler and I are trying to get in touch with a #TNR group in the Newton County Georgia (Covington) area to get them trapped and neutered. Anyone in the area willing to help, please direct message me! In the meantime, we have asked Britini to set up an Amazon wish list so that anyone wanting to help feed these cats can by clicking on the link in her bio. I may be starting a Go Fund Me soon to help raise money for spay and neuter surgeries. If so, I will collect the funds myself and pay the clinic and post receipts on the GFM account. Thank you for helping sweet Britini help these cats! #spayandneuter #feralcats #coicommunity #helpneeded #Georgia #trapneuterreturn

Thinking of starting a boy band. They clearly have great voices and are a hit with the ladies. Problem is, Dallas already wants to leave the band.

Thank you to my hubby, the world's best foster dad for doing the "R" part of #TNR for me today while I'm home sick. These two were the last from a colony of seven to be neutered and vaccinated by C5, the organization I'm a volunteer trapper with. This group of ferals is being fed and given fresh water by a caretaker and will now get to live without fighting to mate and reproducing. Spring is fast approaching and that means more kittens will be born to suffer on the street and many die from disease, weather elements, car traffic, animal and human predators. TNR is so important! Want to help cats in need but are unable to foster? Consider being a volunteer trapper. Contact your local TNR group for more information. #trapneuterreturn #spayandneuter #volunteer #feralcats #neighborhoodcats

That tail tho! 😝 Not only is little Bunny looking better every day, but she's feeling better every day! I think that ear mite medicine really helped her. I want to take just a minute to address a question I get often about her. Many people ask if she can be with the other fosters. Bunny is still contagious. Although most of her skin ailment has cleared, she is still healing. I don't normally mix litters of kittens for several reasons. Bunny has been blood tested negative for disease and mama and her babies have not yet. Bunny has received her first vaccine and mama has not yet. It's for mama's protection as well as Bunny's. Also, her babies are much smaller and still nursing, I don't want Bunny to get in the way of that. There are a lot of factors to consider before just putting kittens together to play. I assure you however that Bunny is not lonely. My husband and I spend a lot of time with her and when the time comes, she will be socialized with my resident cats and dogs. #BunnyTheKitty #fosterkitten #fosteringsaveslives
