Catherine says: I began fostering kittens and cats for the Lort Smith Animal Hospital and Shelter in Melbourne, Australia, in late 2007 after the death of my beloved cat Smoggy, and in his honor.

My fourth session for foster kittens for 2009 consisted of just two kittens, Victor (on the right) and Cleopatra. What little sweeties these two were! unrelated but acted like any other siblings, loving and hating each other… at the same time! ;) Victor was a very sick little guy when he arrived but grew into a gorgeous and healthy young man. Cleo wasn't too sick initially but got really bad and hated taking her medication. And I do mean the worst case of "I ain't taking that stuff" I have ever seen! But she got better with loads of love and some hardcore drugs and was eventually back to her glamourous self. Both were adopted into separate but loving homes.

Smoggy's Friends: Rupert, Parker, Belamy, Penny, Olive & Thomas
Smoggy's Friends: Willow, Cookie & Digby
Smoggy's Friends: Robert, Colin, Flicker & Pearl
Smoggy's Friends: Edmund, Delilah & Mouse
Smoggy's Friends: Milly, Polly, Cocoa, Boots & Randi
Smoggy's Friends: Mitey & Tufty
Smoggy's Friends: Latte, Leccy, Tabby & Carla

I voted for a photo of Victor & Cleopatra together, but I just couldn't let this one go by without giving it special mention. :-) What an adorable shot!

Had to pick both!! Such cuties, aqnd clearly very happy with you - heard all that purring in vids!

Please be careful with that mirrored planter. Where it's broken those mirror pieces, or even the clay, might be sharp for little curious kitties. :)

Cleopatra - such a lovely name for this little beauty! "Sandy" coloring with spots that remind me of an Egyptian Mau - perfect!

Watching the video of them in the basket just singing away, made my belly do flip-flops. I swear there are few sounds more precious than contentedly purring kitties. Aaaahhhhh... Happy sigh
