Year in Review - Part 1

  Those French City Kittens were still in residence.

  A local group of artists donated cat art to raise money for targeted TNR in our area:

  Miss Calais (now Isadora or Izzy) went home to Connecticut. And we got an update.

  Tostada finally got adopted!!

  Nashville came back and hanging out with us to get over a cold.

   After several weeks at one of our partner stores, Margarita found her forever home!!!

   Mom started working on the "new" foster space in the house. It is still a work in progress, but she is glad she figured it out and it gives her the bathroom back. MOL

  Daiquiri developed a weird fascination with the TV in the bedroom.

  Nashville was ADOPTED!!!!

  On March 25, the air was sucked out of the house when Tim crossed Rainbow Bridge. Mom still misses him very much....especially when she sits with the foster kittens since he was so much help in raising great kittens.

  Fortunately to lighten mom's heart, we got a laugh out loud update on Izzy.

  Then these guys arrived:

  We celebrated Mom's birthday and she got a cute present from the kid. And of course, LOTS of pictures of the new kittens - who were named after a flower theme: Amarylis, Muscari, Trillium, Orchid and Dandelion.

  We got some eyeballs:
  And the baby antics continued:

  Then suddenly the flower kittens were 4 weeks old:
Orchid (her leg warmer gives her away)


  The flower kittens turned 6 weeks old and mom began to notice some medical issues with Trillium.

  Mom posted about Dog Bite Prevention Week along with 4 other bloggers.

  The kittens continued to grow though there were continued concerns about Trillium.

  The kittens turned 2 months old!!

  Mom took a trip to Best Friends Animal Society with the kid and her parents. part 2 and CalMar
    Mom also wrote about the measure of character after meeting a special cat there.


  The first of the tree kittens showed up to gain some social skills and were introduced to the flower kittens.

  The tree kittens got names and both groups of kittens melded into one family (though momma cat Amaryllis surely would have been fine without more kittens in the house).

  We posted about Amaryllis trying to find her a home since she was ready to go.

  The 6th tree kitten showed up.  The kittens continued to grow and goof off.

  Trillium continued to stay with another foster mom and the remaining flower kittens went up to the adoption center.

  Mom continued to work with the tree kittens hoping to get the skittish kittens more social.


  1. weird how several of those things feel like they happened just yesterday and several others feel like they happened years ago..

    1. seriously.... :) it is part of the reason we love doing an end of the year review

  2. It's always good to look back and see what happened. You have done so much good for so many kittens. Thank you.

  3. Wow, a lot gets done in a year - and yet never enough, it seems.

  4. I am so proud to be a part of the year in review. Isadora Calais (who is mostly known as Izzy unless she's in big trouble) has become a beautiful, sweet and amusing kitty. Her brothers adore her, and I can't imagine life without her. Izzy has kept life hilarious in a regular basis. I can't thank Random Felines enough for making Izzy's adoption happen. My little family of Nicky, Dusty and Izzy makes my life complete. ❤🐾❤🐾❤🐾

    1. awwww - we do love that first picture up there of her and her siblings :)

  5. Wow, a lot went on during the first part of 2016! You had a lot of kittens you fostered.

  6. Part 1 was exhausting just to read about, and that was only the first half of the year! :-)

  7. That was a lot just for the first half of the year ! Purrs

  8. guyz....we canna bee leeve itz been all most a yeer for sum oh thiz nooze....

    itz grate ta see flash bax fotoz with everee one; sum laffz heer N ...sum tearz two ~~~~~~ ♥♥♥♥♥

  9. Hard to believe all of that happened in 6 months! Angel Tim is watching from heaven, and he knows that you love him.

  10. There was definitely a lot of action around the house. We're so sorry that Tim ran for the Bridge, he is certainly missed.

    We look forward to Part II.
    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  11. There sure were a lot of kittens that came through the door the first 6 months.

  12. What a great first six months of the year you had - I love those flower kittens especially.

  13. Did that really all happen in half a year? We had forgotten that Izzy/Calais went home less than a year ago and would be in the year in review. That made us smile.


We love to hear from you.....
