What Happened to Friday?

It was strange for me to not write a Friday blog post yesterday.  The day sort of got away from me!

If you didn't get a chance to read Thursday's blog post about the passing of little "Kallie", please take a peek at it here, before reading on.

While baby Kallie was dying on Thursday, I was busy giving some phone advice for another rescuer when she found a tiny kitten under a pile of wood. The kitten belonged to a feral Mom who had moved the rest of the kittens, but this one remained.

Through her grief, the foster Mom read about the plight of little "Chance" and offered to take him and put him with the rest of Kallie's littermates. It's always a little scary, because you don't know if Mom cat is going to accept a newcomer.

Our worries were unfounded.

  Little Chance has a family once again. 

Our adoptions are going well, and the phone is ringing.  We had a darling litter of kittens born yesterday:

The circle of life continues, I guess!

I'm "off the clock" this weekend and gratefully have a volunteer minding the email and phones.  I'm going to have a little outing with my sweetie today.  Have a wonderful weekend!!

Cats are such amazing creatures, I love how the queens parent, and often accept other kits as their own! Have a nice day off, you deserve it.

Foster mom can be proud that she did all she could for Kallie, sometimes you just lose the battle. Chance really does have a chance now. I've never had a mom reject a kitten, weird huh. I've even had two mom's, not related, that were fostered with their kittens and would nurse each others brood any time the kittens wanted it. It was nice watching them take care of the kittens and each other. I heard that after all the kittens were adopted someone adopted both mom cats together.

Little Chance seems rather petrified at having siblings and quite frankly he looks like a black lab! lol
