New Foster Mom Saves Six Kittens

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have such an exciting story to share with you about six kittens our Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) group helped through targeted TNR (trap, neuter, return) in our city. If you live anywhere there is a “kitten season” in the USA you know that by June time most public shelters are about full up with kittens, in shelter and in foster care.

That happened with two litters one resident had, Miss Jessica, in our PDVC project area in Pittsburg, CA. We were able to get one set of kittens into the municipal shelter but by the time we could catch the mom cat and other kittens from two other litters, the shelter was full. Shelter staff advised we have the resident “foster in place and socialize” and try to get them into the shelter in the Fall/Winter.

That is exactly what Miss Jessica did!! She cared for two gray kittens, and five black and black and white kittens from two mom cats for SEVEN MONTHS!! Miss Jessica has never fostered before and she works full time. But, she did one heck of a great job with these kittens. One of the black and whites was adopted by her friend, but the other six stayed with her, inside and well loved and well fed!

The first two Mom L took to the shelter right after Christmas, one gray and one white with black, have been pulled by a wonderful rescue for their Kitty Corner, Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS).

The white with black started to chill’ax faster, but the gray kitty turned out to be a lap cat!

You can see that both became very comfy and that is why CCHS pulled them and they are on their way to forever homes!

The second pair Mom L toke to the shelter on Jan. 2nd.

Another gray kitty, with striking amber eyes and a tuxedo. They are still shy but coming around.

The last two were taken in Jan 8 and are still very scared as they were the least socialized of the six. But once the first four were gone, these two started to interact with foster Miss Jessica more easily.

 

Here are their intake photos at the shelter. Both are female, one tuxedo and one all black.

I will keep you posted on the kitties if I can. Targeted TNR works! And people do care and people really ARE THE SOLUTION!!

What do you think about that notion?

Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Not a ton of stuff going on in my castle this past week EXCEPT for the new news Mom L posted on her Facebook page. Now the photo was taken in the darkest hour of the early morning so you only get a backside view, but from this you can verify just who this kitty is.

Yes!! Katie finally moved over to Mom L’s side of the bed one night this week. She is becoming an “equal opportunity bed warmer” for both Mom L and Dad P.

As for what’s up with me this week, I am starting to take back my place on my our couch at night with Mom L. As you may recall, KK has been trying to steal borrow this prize location. You’d think Mom L could’a caught me in a more favorable pose though, na’ mean??

What? I was just making sure my tail is still attached!

If you missed my Friday Memes, they you are gonna appreciate me sharing this photo with you. Mom L volunteered her time one afternoon at a “Kitchen Clinic” with Community Concern For Cats, CC4C, and was sure she saw a bunch of white ferrets show up!! She shook her head and looked outside again and this is what she saw.

Yoo hoo?? Anybody out there????

These six kittens, four all white, one white with black accessories and one with a dab of light gray paint on top of his head, are one of THREE litters of white kittens all from the same dad!! Three different tabby moms and dad is also a tabby?? Go figure!!

Mom L met another adult cat at this clinic. He just showed up in his foster Mom’s backyard a couple of days before the clinic. Not neutered and begging to be held constantly. He had some real vocal cords this one did!! MOL!!  Miss Gemma who runs this clinic would have to pick him up and carry him around the room to collect worming meds and claw whackers for his care.

Isn’t he a handsome Bengal boy?

Let me hear in comments what’cha think is the most inner’esting Meowsie News this week!

Monday Meowsie Variety Photos

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I thought you might all enjoy seeing some photos of the kitties I featured in my last Monday Meowsie News post. And I am also tossing in some of me, TKS and KK.

This is an “almost” wordless Monday!!

First up is ME, or course! I so luvluvluv having my head brushed, don’t you?

Ahhh…just the purrfect spot

And Kit Katie aka KK, has so many new photos, I had to kind’a pick just a few.

Tks decided to join me and KK in a group photo opportunity.

All three of us taking our afternoon naps

Now here’s the latest and greatest news!! No photo, but verified by Mom L’s new eyesight after her cat-er-act surgeries. Mom L got up to visit the human’s litter box a few nights ago, and she discovered KK and TKS curled up like doughnuts, butt to butt, furrs touching, snoozing against Dad P’s leg!!! CONTACT!!!

Remember our rescue kitty, Bianca, from the park colony. Check her out after her spay and during her recovery with her foster Mom Miss Helen.

Isn’t she something??? She goes to adoption event next weekend. And she has the most lovely roomie, Miss Penelope.

Of course Katie wanted my readers to check out her latest moves and moments too.

That’s it for us this week with our Monday Meowsie news. Mom L fought with Word Press to do a better presentation of our photos but she lost her battle. We hope you still enjoy seeing us.
