A Piece of Joy

I was an official "Cat Taxi" today and was on the road by 9 a.m. to pick up Travis and another VERY cute boy named A.J. I took them both to the vets for their surgeries. A.J. is 11 years old and was rescued with his brother Arthur after his guardian passed away and they were left without a home.

A.J. was the cutest thing - I could hear him purring from the back seat! I could also smell him! He had such bad teeth and his mouth smelled like it was rotten. I bet he feels like a new guy after his dental surgery today. Everytime I looked in the backseat he was looking at me adoringly and purring. I'm in love. :)

Yesterday, I posted a Mom and her babies that I rescued and placed in a loving foster home:

Mom and Kids

CUTENESS ALERT: (the after pictures!)
The following picture had me laughing out loud. I know this foster Mom and she had a lovely bright room for the little family set up when I arrived. ALL the comforts you can imagine! But look where Mom cat ended up nursing her babies...

I can't imagine why anyone would NOT want to foster after seeing these pictures. What great joy these little faces bring to your lives!

Awesome! My cat likes to lay in the sink too, and also likes to drink from it.

Of all the highs and lows, I wouldn't trade having fostered mom cats for anything. The highs SO make up for it! The sink picture breaks my heart; I want a nursing mom again! :P
