 It seems to be the summer of single kittens. Mom is willing to take the risk of mixing litters so she is taking the singles that need a space. 

If you remember Carsen that we lost, meet his brother Cameron.

The trapper working in that trailer park found him about a week after Carsen passed away. She kept him for a while but he joined us on Monday so he can socialize and learn some cat skills.

He has met all the other cats. He isn't very sure about himself yet so he has been sitting back and watching the action for the past couple of days.

Brigid clearly took offense to another black cat in the foster room when he first showed up.

Brigid will be going back to the rescue this week since her spay incision looks much better. Gordon will be neutered in the next couple of weeks. Miss Spicy is doing better. She is still hand shy if mom reaches to grab her but she warms up quickly once she's caught. In fact on Monday she wiggled out of the towel and curled up on her own and took a nap on mom while purring. AWWW

Cameron is very sweet and wants to play though he hasn't had other cat exposure of his own size so he's trying to figure the whole thing out. We doubt it will take very long before he is running around with everyone else. 

The little girls continue to do well but are behind the panels for now until they grow some.

 Well, most of the Celtic Kittens went to the adoption center on Saturday. Danu's spay site was swollen so she stayed here and has a vet appointment this morning.

The foster room got cleaned and reset. Gordon is now in there and the bigger Tespo panels were made into a cube for a pair of little girls. 

Plus there is this:

Meet Spicy. Yes, based on her current personality. An adopter from the reacue foubd her. She's probably about 6 weeks old and very not sure about anything. However, mom has seen her on the cameras playing and trying to interact with Gordon. 

We've delayed a little bit introducing the little girls. They were crated while mom kept a close eyeon them to make sure they are eating and doing ok. They were a hot mess since they ate just old enough to figure things out without a mom. Which means Sunday they got a bath;

Both brown tabby, both girls,one short hair one medium. Still deciding on names.

Too good to last

 Well, some kitten made it OVER the panels. The good news, we get the living room back:

The bad news is there is a small gray kitten loose in the house. Not sure where he slept last night except it wasn't with mom. He could be heard running the halls occasionally but nothing bad. 

Clearly being free is hard work. 


The boys from the Celtic Kittens go to be neutered tomorrow then up to the adoption center. Mom told the vet to just microchip the tabby boys and assign each ibe a nake since we still can't tell them apart. Hahaha

Hopefully the girls will go soon then mom can get the room back.

too many balls in the air

 a post from the mom

There have been some changes at the rescue and I've been helping but geez I'm tired. Between work and kittens and paperwork and people texting me, I am developing a twitch.

Celtic kittens are still here until there are surgery openings. Between covid backups and kitten season, it is hard to get spots. 

Gordon is doing well and feisty as ever. It helps that he purrs while he chews on me - at least he is cute. He is set up in the living room in a pen with the clear Tespo panels and Chanel is baffled on a regular basis on why she can SEE the baby but she can't TOUCH the baby. 

The permanent residents are doing well. Ivy seems more comfortable so hopefully the dental bought us some time with her until she can get back in again. 

So other than I need a vacation or I'm going to throw my phone out the window, it's pretty good here. Well it's hot....but it's June. haha

Weekend report

 First some sad news: as happens in foster care when you take in strays and the very vulnerable, there are losses. Carsen died on Sunday. We didn't have him very long but he was loved. The rescue has a trapper working hard at the trailer park where he was found doing spay and neuter to break the cycle. If you would like to help, you can donate at using the yellow donate button on the left. 


Gordon was getting a little wild in the crate, so with the help of Miss Z the large Tespo panels were put up and he now has a bigger spot. In the middle of the living room. He and Chanel are very confused by the invisible walls. Haha

It didn't take very long for Daiquiri to figure out how to get in to raid his food dish either. 

Mom did a bunch of laundry on Sunday and Gordon's lamb and in with it. He got the sniff test and then they curled up for a nap.

Stop biting the new guy

 One of the TNR trappers for the rescue reached out to mom about a single kitten she had found. Since Gordon needs a kitty friend, mom offered to take him.

Well, turns out the new guy is about half the size of Gordon. But he is fiesty so that helps. Gordon spent the first part of the introduction treating him like a cat toy. By Thursday morning, they were getting along better. The new guy is named Carsen after the daughter of the volunteer. He needs some work but hopefully as he puts on some weight he will start kicking Gordon's butt.

Hes so bitey

 There is something fosters and cat people call "single kitten" syndrome. Young kittens without a mom or siblings tend to be mouthy and pushy because they don't get bitten or slapped back.

Gordon has an evil version of it. He is SO bitey and will slap too. Mom us trying to break the habit but he gets excited and it gets worse. He may need a friend to teach him better lessons. 

He can be sweet but right now no family would adopt him. He is not gentle at all. 

But he is cute.
