The Care and Feeding of The Fang Sisters: Life Fostering Five Kittens

Occhi and Pokey

Feed, pet, scoop and clean...Feed, pet, scoop and clean...Feed, pet, scoop and clean...And so we have done, since June 1, 2009 when we brought these kittens into our home and hearts. Izzy and I have diligently attended to their needs, several times each day and my how they have changed.

They were frightened then. Some hissed and scratched. Others trembled when we held them. Now they have become our little bundles of purr. When I open their crate for playtime, they leap out and come to me. They climb over me and await neck and belly rubs. Izzy grooms their paws and chases them relentlessly. He also showers them with plenty of cuddles.

First thing each morning, Izzy comes to get me and asks, "Is it kitten time?" Our day begins around 7 a.m., with kitten play and feeding time. We try to give them as much playtime as possible, letting them out 3-4 times a day. All of our constant attention has turned these kittens into, tame, playful pets.

They will be ready for adoption in about 10 days and we will be so sad to see them go. We would like to keep one of them, two would be ideal since they play so well together but I am not so sure I really need four cats in the house.

If you think you might be interested in adopting one our kittens, Pokey, Occhi, Checker, Tiger or Rabutnitcha please contact me and come on over to pet and play with them! More pictures shortly..

Sorry about that shrieking. That was me. :)

If I was closer... I have three cats, but really, after 2, it doesn't really matter how many there are...
