Foster Friday....

Our very first foster litter was August 2006. Mom had signed up and got a call that a current foster was having to leave town and would we be willing to finish the time for 3 kittens. Sure!!

Mom arranged to meet the lady. She handed mom that green/white feeding tray someone asked about (no idea where she got it - and we haven't ever seen it anywhere else), a container of food and a carrier with three kittens in it. Mom asked there names and the lady shrugged and said she hadn't named them. (WHAT??)

This is what was in the carrier:

Mom named them Topaz (brown tabby), Onyx (black) & Silver (gray). They were very sweet and kept mom on her toes - it had been a while since we had kittens in the house!

A couple of years later, someone stopped mom at the shelter and asked if she had fostered a kitten named Silver. Mom nodded and the guy pulled up a picture on his phone to show her the full grown version - and they had come back to adopt another cat!!!


  1. That is very cool that your mom got to see a pic of Silver, all grown up! And how nice the humans were adopting another! :-)

  2. That is so wonderful that Silver is doing well and that their family is growing!!!

  3. That is so neat that you got to see a picture of Silver all grown up. It is so rewarding that they find good homes. Bet that made you feel good.

  4. Awwww what a lovely story!! Yay for Silver, Onyx and Topaz!! Take care

  5. Oh we know that made your Mom so happy to see a grown up Silver! That is a wonderful story.


  6. Lovely story!
    Have a great saturday!!!!


We love to hear from you.....
