Happy endings

A few weeks ago we caught the three kittens from under the porch near Brenda's house and they went to a wonderful foster home, two have already been adopted. After that, mama Daisy moved the remaining two kittens. We searched under every porch to no avail. Finally, last week, they emerged and we sprang into action. It's easier said than done to catch kittens and it took three tries before we caught them.

Here are they are, the holdouts, aren't they cute. They are probably about 9 weeks old now. Aaffien took them for a few days to do intensive socializing and then they went to the same foster home as the others. Since they were out on their own longer, they will take a bit more work but in a few weeks they will be ready to go to their forever homes, and with faces like that, it shouldn't take long for them to be snapped up. Thank you Dawna for taking them in, and thank you Toronto Cat Rescue for all your help with these cats and kittens.

We also trapped Daisy, the mother, and Beau, the presumed father, and got them spayed and neutered so that Daisy won't have to raise any more kittens under a porch. The wonderful person on the street who was feeding them has agreed to continue to do so and will provide them a shelter as well so they can be snug and warm.

So that mission is complete with happy endings all around.

I couldn't resist throwing in this picture of Reggie (formerly Pumpkin), one of our feral kittens from last year, in his new home. He has grown to be a very handsome and loved cat.

Whenever I feel tired I remind myself of all the happy endings.

  1. And so you should. You do amazing work.The little grey kitten has the most beautiful eyes. She looks very different in the 2 pic. One she looks smokey-grey and the other almost charcoal. She would be my pic although the black one is adorable too.
