So, today we start with Butterfly and her kittens (from January 2008). Butterfly was the first momma cat that came to foster with us. She came in with 5 tiny babies. One didn't make it but the other 4 seemed OK - but they were tiny. Mom was very worried about them and after some emails managed to get her put in the medical department. Once they were sure Butterfly was eating, they allowed mom to bring her home with the kids. Over the next few weeks we lost Willow and Sage. And mom was very sad since these were the first kittens that died while they were with us.
However, Marigold and Violet grew into lively and wild kittens. Mom took to calling them the "skeeter sisters" since they were tiny, buzzing around and they liked to bite!! Violet loved to wait until mom was distracted and then would gnaw on her ankles. One morning mom could hear them howling from the bathroom. She opened the door to find this:
this became Butterfly's new favorite spot!!
The vet at the time was concerned about the kittens coming back to the shelter since they had been sick. They allowed mom to post the girls online and she got an email from a nice lady and they decided the family would take the girls together. YEAH!!!

Mom tried to email them for an update, but the email bounced, so we weren't able to find out how they are doing now, but we hope they are well!!
