Cute Overload

If you didn't have enough "cute" for the day, I received the following video of our latest little additions to our rescue.  They were born on March 21st and rescued on March 24th :

The foster Mom did a GREAT job with this video! Won't that be a treat for the adopters? Many of us never got to actually see our cats when they were newborn. :)  I figured when one of them is an adult, and pee's in the laundry basket, his new family can be reminded how cute he was and forgive him. 
We had another foster home who does mini-scrapbooks of each foster cat from the time they arrive in every cute possible pose.  It's such a thoughtful idea.  I wish I had time to do that.  I'm just happy when I get can get some decent pictures on the site.

Today was an admin day for me and I accomplished quite a bit.  It's tough to sit down for any length of time, but I was surprised how much I could do in 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there. 

We had one cat returned to us post-adoption yesterday.  Cute little "Corduroy" was returned because the resident cat couldn't get used to his presence.  It's sad, but we're happy to have him back and will find him the right home. 

I've already watched the kitten video - 3 times.  Sometimes I need to be reminded why I do what I do.

That video was wonderful. Yes, the foster mom did a great job with it! None of my cats was very young when adopted, all 6+ months old, so this definitely *will* be appreciated by the adopting families. :-)

I hope both you and your son are feeling at least a bit better now, Beth.

They are so cute.
The foster is very talented with the computer!
Thank you for shareing

I know I would have loved baby pics of my guys. That's why I do so many Facebook photo albums. I give the links to adopters so they can see the litter and their new kitty. I sent CDs of their pics when I had a litter go to PetSmart ;). And YouTube is great for videos. I still watch some of my old foster kittens playing. I love 'em all.

Glad to know I'm not the only one with occasional cat+laundry mishaps :P

Such an awesomely cute idea to have videos of them when they are so small :D

Wow that video is terrific and I must say the kittens look great. All so healthy and clean!

OMG that is sooo cute! I think the foster lady could conduct classes showing the rest of us how to use that program and the money from the classes could go to rescue! Just an idea!

Oh my gosh, at 1:35 the kitten is nursing it his/her sleep!

So cute!

I second that idea for lessons on video scrapbooking. Photos don't always do the kitties justice. It should be entered on Squee. Hope you're feeling better, Beth, little steps at a time. My friend's tailbone broke during labour when her son's big melon was on its way out. Youch for both of them too.
