weekend update

Well last week certainly sucked. Mom got a text on Thursday evening that the couple that had adopted Enigma came in that night and wanted to let the rescue (and mom) know that he had been euthanized on Monday for FIP. We hate that stupid disease.....  RIP Enigma. We know your mom loved you very much and misses you terribly.

Wait? Where we going??

Mom took Lane and Fate to the local partner store where she helps clean. Normally they would go up to the adoption center but there was an opening and mom wants to see if they could get adopted from the store. The cage isn't very big so if they are there more than a couple of weeks, mom will move them to the adoption center. They would probably go in the juvenile kitten room and there are quite a few kittens there are the moment and mom is afraid they will get overlooked.

Lane and Fate are both 4 months old, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, fully vaccinated and microchipped. They don't have to go together but would do very well together or would need to be in a home committed to keeping them busy or with another younger cat as they are both very active. That said, they are also so very very sweet. They are in central Ohio.

We had these two for quite a while and this was a hard one for mom leaving them up there.

The bug kittens continue to do well. They are wild and crazy but also so very sweet and love to come up and climb on mom for some love when she is in there with them.

Random Fridays

Thanks for all the comments about Mopar. It is part of fostering, but it never gets easier (and if it does then we should probably find something else to do with our time).

mom walked into the bedroom last weekend and saw this
pretty sure she doesn't even WANT to know what those two were plotting

Lane adores that fish shaped kicker
which is good since her newest habit is to chew on mom

the face of the very smug (Fate)

Fate and Lane are recovering really well from surgery. Like most kittens, they came home, rushed out of the carrier, demanded a meal and ran around like they were on fire. Weirdos.

Luckily there is a spot at the partner store where mom helps clean so they are going to head up there tomorrow morning. There hasn't been a ton of luck with kittens out of this store, but mom would love to see it happen.

The bug kittens continue to do well. Mom put the happy duck from Miss Dee back in the foster room and they can be found curled up on him napping (btw - Fate tried this and mom saw him on the web cam....he didn't fit so well - hahaha).

break out

As it was left on Monday, Mopar had broken IN to baby jail twice Saturday night and Sunday morning. Mom decided to surrender since the last time (Mopar wasn't going OVER - he was pushing the gate) resulted in Cricket getting out and wandering around the room.

Mom took the pen done Sunday morning and let everyone mingle. There was some name calling, the little kittens bounced around and occasionally put on their "stranger danger" outfits. All in all however, it went fairly well. Meal time is taking longer as mom has to stay in the room to make sure that everyone gets to eat....some of them aren't very good about staying in their own spots.

same little kitten yells at Lane that she wasn't done with her just yet

Beetle checks out the track ball.

Considering that the bug kittens are less than half the size of the single kittens, it has been going pretty well. Luckily Fate and Lane have decided that the little ones can be fun, but bouncing on each other is MORE fun.

In other news: the single kittens went yesterday for their spay/neuter surgeries. Fate and Lane are doing well and are now ready for their new homes.

Mopar however was having some issues. We had been treating him and hoping for the best, but he looked bad at the clinic yesterday. They tapped his belly and pulled out yellow fluid which is a sign of FIP and the director of the rescue authorized them to euthanize him. Mom is heartbroken. He took a while to come around but once he did he became a wonderful and lovely boy. Mom spent some time in the kitten room on Monday night and gave him lots of love.
