These three guys have all grown up and gone to new homes now but we thought you might like this photo of them after completing their litter box training. You can see photos of the grown up versions of them on our website.

Meet Dodger and Oreo, our little bundles of joy.They are nine weeks old in these photos and their litter (of six) was rescued by someone whose front garden they had been abandoned in. It is unclear if they were abandoned by a person or their mother. They came to us via our lovely friend who volunteers for Cats Protection and has to date hand reared 38 kittens. All the litters have commonly themed names. There have been superheroes, Marvel comic characters and this time, biscuits. Perfect for us as we are partial to a cookie or two! They are both mischievous and adorable at equal turns and it took alot of shots to capture them still. They have completely taken over our house and we couldn’t be happier. We are thinking of renaming Dodger "Podger" because he likes to spend a lot of time at his food bowl and is developing a little belly. He loves having said belly rubbed and also likes watching TV. Oreo is quite a little diva and she is becoming very talkative. They have great fun play fighting all over the house. I hope that they bring as much happiness to your afternoon as they do to us.

I got the call late at night. A friend located a kitten from a feral mother that was killed by a car. I set off with trap in hand. I soon learned that the mother was killed weeks earlier. Needless to say, I was, and still am, very ticked off at him for not calling earlier. Anyway, it only took 2 minutes to trap the baby, which was only seven weeks old. The shock came when I put my hands on the little ball of fluff. Under all that hair, he was nothing but skin & bones. The next morning we went to the vet. The vet said that the kitten wouldn’t have lived much longer. Aside from being skinny, and rather… ummmmm… ugly, Gizmo was doing pretty good.
A few days later, I signed him over to the no-kill shelter that I foster for. He got a check up, his first shots & he went home with me to be fost ered. Several weeks later Gizmo was turned over to the shelter to be neutered & find his forever home, but something was very wrong. Four days had passed & I haden’t stopped crying for the ugly, little furball. I called the shelter & told them what was going on. They said what I already knew. Gizmo did have his forever home! The next day I drove 90 minutes to the shelter to pick up my furball who adopted me! When I got home, Mom asked why Gizzy was back. I just said that he never should have left in the first place! Months later, the ugly duckling has turned into a swan! Gizmo has grown into a very handsome boy with long, glossy, silky black fur.

Sarajevo was brought into the local PetCo while I was in the check-out purchasing cat food for my other two girls. After checking out, I went to the local rescue group (PALS) and asked what the story was. This kitten was attacked by a pit bull puppy. The rescue group did not think she would make it so I volunteered to take her home to see what I could do with her. When I took her to my vet, they wanted her name, which I hadn’t given to her yet. I had been calling her “Dog Food” all weekend but the vet techs refused to call her that so she became “Sarajevo”. I figured she had gone through quite a battle. She had multiple bites all over her body, fleas, earmites and worms. She is pictured here after she was out of isolation (guest bathroom) and is a ball of impish love.

Dino was one kitten in a litter of four. His brothers and sisters did not make it, but Dino was found by a construction worker before it was too late for him. He spent one day at the animal shelter before he came to my house as my new foster kitten. I had to learn how to mix kitten replacement milk and learn to bottle feed him. It has been a wonderful experience taking care of this little guy. I have a feeling he has found his forever home!

Franny is a sweet, loving and talkative little gal. She was so shy when we first adopted her but now she has warmed up to us all so much. She wakes me up in the morning meowing and rubbing her face up against mine. It’s adorable. Franny also loves to look out the kitchen window with me while I drink my coffee. She’s a delight and we are so happy to have her!

Our kitten is fun energetic and loves a good full day of playing and eating, so when you’re ever in a bad mood look at his photo, it will make your day!
