Here is a picture of my foster kittens sleeping together on their bed. It is rare that they all sleep together.

The second is a picture of their momma, Sweet Pea. She is a beautiful silver taby with splashes of orange.

Here are her kittens on their bed:

The one on the top left and bottom right are the two orphans that are recovering from the calici virus. From top left going clockwise: Dumbo, Speedy, Bear, Brownie, Runt, Misty, and Twin. Brownie and Twin are the only two kittens that have not had any illnesses at all. Dumbo and Runt are the recovering Calici virus and Bear, Speedy and Misty had a gastrointestinal infections 4 weeks ago. Misty looks just like the stray I was feeding and got hit by a car July 1 weekend.

Dumbo is going to be a 15 lb cat, he is huge. Runt is going to be a tiny framed male. All of Sweet Pea kittens are tiny framed. Speedy is the first kitty to run the length of the bedroom and is an escape artist. She loves to wait by the bedroom door and run out as soon as I open the door. Of course my Jasper is just waiting and plays with her and gives her kisses. Bear was the sickest of the three with the intestinal infection is going to be a sucky lap cat. He was held for hours each day while he was recovering. Originally he was the largest and strongest of the brood and now is very timid and the smallest.

I could sure use the help to cat sit. Wish I could be at home at lunch to feed the newest sick one, Misty.

Sweet Pea is most likely staying with us. I just have to make sure she doesn't go after my female, Puddles. I don't want to introduce them until the kittens are gone, just incase momma's protective instinct kicks in and goes after my cat. Want the first introductions to be as stressless as possible to ensure success.

That would be wonderful,after all she's been through,to end up in a cage at the shelter,would be so sad:sad:
Hopefully she'll learn to get along with your kitties:pray:

Oh they are already "rarin to go". When they hear my footsteps come down the hall, they gather at the door and make a dash out of the room as soon as the door is opened. My Jasper, who is 14 lbs of muscle, waits anxiously outside the room for them to play. He gets them between his two front legs (of course the kittens can stand up under him) and gives them big head kisses. The kittens LOVE him. After their kisses, he gently puts his paw up to play with them.
