I'm new here, mainly posting on cat health and general cat and dog discussion forums.


Thought I would post some photos of all of our pets.

We are currently fostering 6 now 9 week old kittens and their mom. We are keeping two kittens and the mom. There's a long post at cat health where I've posted a huge amount of kitten pictures. There is our dog, Daisy, sleeping with three kittens. Daisy is about 3 and half years old.

Awww, KITTENS! :D :D

I love puppies, but there's something about the clumsy, yet fluke-full agility kittens have. Such a joy to watch!

What a beautiful blended family you have! :D

Hi, Dracko. We are keeping Spot and Hercules. They are all so precious! Spot and Herc are the most gentle and friendly of the bunch. Sneezy is a terror who likes to scratch and bite and won't be held and is very playful, always jumping and running. Snake is so timid but very sweet, loves to be petted but not held. Dumpy is adorable, loves to be petted and held a bit. He and sneezy are like the terrible two, always knocking something over, plants, you name it. Mittens is extremely friendly when sleepy and wanting pets but her nick name is Razors because she can draw blood in a instant.

They were all terrified (hissy and hiding) at four weeks when we brought them home. I put them and Mama in my office and my son and I spent a lot of time gaining their trust. They are all now very friendly considering, seeking out pets and human attention.

It was reeeeeally hard to decide but after 5 weeks we are finally sure who we will keep. I will miss Snake the most, she's a doll.

I hope this is allowed here. PM if you are interested in a kitten. I would love for someone here, who cares and will give him/her a good home, to adopt one if anyone is interested in adding to their family. You would have to adopt from the SPCA here, which I'm sure would be simple enough. I would even deliver the little one within a reasonable distance from here if I could do the trip there and back in a day.

Editing: Or, they will be going to the lower mainland of BC, Vancouver or Victoria, I could find out exactly where they are going.

If I didn't have this place, I'd burst! I really don't have anybody else to brag about my gang to. I post stuff on my blog, but it's here where I know my furbabies are appreciated. I'm not made to feel like I'm nuts for loving them and spoiling them as much as I do.:D

I didn't notice that! I didn't pose them, they are nursing in such an odd way with mom sitting up. I get the feeling she just tolerates them, nursing six big babies has to be taxing.

She's trying to give them a hint that it's time they stopped :laughing:, next she'll get up & walk away while they try to nurse. :D

She does this already! She doesn't let them nurse too much these days.

I have some kitten videos at YouTube as well:

I totally lucked out with the sweetest Mama and cutest babies. I went in to get a kitten on a Saturday. I figured a kitten would get along better with our adult cats and really bond with my son. So, they had a bunch of kittens but then they showed me a mama with six one week old babies (not my Mama). She needed to be fostered because she was really mean to the other cats in her room and they didn't have an individual cage for her and her babies, they were that full. I went home and talked to my husband that day and he agreed to have the mama and her babies here. But, they are closed Sun and Mon so we had to wait until Tues. I went in and the mama and babies had been shipped out to a bigger centre! But, there was another mom and six babies, these one were four weeks old. They had been exposed to another mom and set of babies with coccidia. The SPCA put all of those babies and mom down because they were so sick and no-one could take them to nurse them back to health.

So, we took this Mama and babies. She had a mild case of coccidia and the babies are healthy. I'm convinced though the SPCA would have put them all down they are so afraid of the whole shelter getting the bug. She is a sweetheart! She gets along with the other cats and dog extremely well. One of our cats will hiss and she just sort of glances at them like, 'What is your problem??'. It's been an amazing experience to watch the babies grow and to be able to nurse her back to good health.
