Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Foster Kittens Update!


You may all remember my blog post about Snipping A Budding Cat Colony. That was my first introduction of the two, and eventually the three kittens, who became our fosters.

The beginning of our foster experience started with Mom L and Dad P offering to help the caretakers of the Snipped Budding Cat Colony. Next thing TKS and I knew Mom L was bringing the two five-month-old boy cats into MY CASTLE!!

I had to let my readers know about this outrage in my blog post about becoming fosters! The very idea of some cats living with Mom L in my her our office!

The two boys, Rocky, the tuxie boy, and Jessie, the white and black boy, were restricted to an enclosure for a day or so. They were not happy as they had been living in the great outdoors.


These two crazy pants boy cats were soon ripping around My Mom L’s OUR office, knocking stuff off our desk and right down into their water bowl!! (please hover over photos for kitten captions)

They liked to keep an eye on the neighborhood and check out what the neighbor dogs and cats were up to.

Did you see that Rocky? Yeah Jessie, unreal, huh?

Rocky and Jessie were none too impressed with their first experience at a Petco adoption event.

Hey Jessie? Don’t ya wanna just break outta here?

They had to stay caged for three hours two days in a row. You can see how exhausted they were after such a traumatic experience.


Mom L convinced Dad P that they really ought to bring the sister, gray and white Chloe, to my castle as well so’s they could socialize her even more. Next thing I knew, she showed up!

Chloe wasn’t too sure about her brothers.

Get away from my butt buddy!

It was three weeks since they last saw each other. But soon Rocky Rockstar had her playing with him. I am sure she never thought he would be so bold as to try to share her new fave napping spot on the cat tower.

Gee whiz brother, stop being a bed hog!

Can you tell what a harummpf Chloe was in with brazen Rocky! And then look at them just a few minutes later.

Can’t beat ’em, join ’em

Before long they were all kitten piled in the same cat tower. You can see it was a bit over crowded!!

The weekend adoption events were not gonna be possible any longer because Mom L and Dad P were headed off for a week away. They couldn’t keep the kittens. What to do, what to do??

Kazamm!! Contra Costa Humane Society had enough space in their Kitty Corner for the three siblings to ALL go there. They were to share a special suite with another kitten named Smokey.

They were nervous at first.

But last we heard, they were hanging out, playing and they had pulled shy Smokey out of her hiding hole and she was right there in the midst of them all!

Paw crossed these three former foster kittens are adopted in a nod and a wink! We have put together a small Adoption To Go kit for each which has brand new versions of their favorite toys from my castle. Here are the photos Kitty Corner used on their website.

Here’s Rocky Rockstar!

Next up is Chloe Cutie Pie.

And the ever suave Jessie da’ Man!

I’ll let ya know when they are adopted.

    They are all adorable. I hope they soon get their forever homes.

  10. So sweet. Looks like the kitties got a good start to learn how to live in a home. Paws crossed that they are all soon in forever homes of their own.

    Love and licks,

  11. We sure hope those sweeties get to go home super soon!!!

  12. OMC, those three are SO adorable! In a perfect world they would all go together to a new home… but I’ll take awesome, but separate homes for them! I am looking forward to hearing when they’ve been adopted!

    Hawooo! Three on the tree BOL BOL BOL!!


  14. Good that you have the space to yourself, again, Savvy, we all know you are prone to nervous tummy reactions when turmoil like this comes for a visit. And the kitten are more likely to find a home when they are in a shelter where they are on display for adoption all the time.

  15. That was nice of you to share your house with those foster kittens, Savvy. We know how disruptive it can be though. We purr that these three find their own homes soon. They’re so cute…it shouldn’t take long.

  16. I hope that they all get lovely homes soon.

    It must have been quite a trial for you to have so many cats in your house, Savvy!

  17. katie isabella on said:

    Oh what a wonderful thing and what a happy thing that you and Dad P helped these innocents. Look at them, just perfect, happy and healthy. Their lives would have been so different without you andMr P.

  18. We have our paws crossed your 3 fosters and their new roommate all find wonderful homes soon.

  19. What a great result for all three kittens. It bodes so well that they have settled so quickly, and helped Smokey, too. Which I think is a lot to do with the fine home they came into and Mom L and Dad P and you Savannah and TKS too.
    I sure do hope they’ll get that forever home very soon. Like Marjorie I have tears of joy.
    Toodle pip and purrs

  20. Hope they get adopted soon!

  21. Sat here close to tears (happy tears) at the good fortune of these youngsters. How lucky they are to have you on their side – this is the best news.

    How do I know? I was blessed to be able to visit Kitty Corner and it was an unforgettable experience.

    They are the luckiest young kittens alive, iffen you asks us. Thank you Savvy and family.

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
