Michelle says: Casper and his sister Wendy were rescued by a couple who found them in their backyard. The mom had abandoned her kittens so they took them in and cared for them until a cat-rescue volunteer brought them to us for fostering. Though Casper loved to snuggle and cuddle, he took his time to come over to me when I entered a room -- he needed to stretch and yawn first. But then he loved to be kissed and cuddled and he loved to roll on his back for tummy rubs. Like Wendy, he loved his foster sibling, Annie. Luckily, Casper and Wendy were adopted into a wonderful home together!

Just a thought & comment about the mom abandoning the kittens. I have read that so many times on this site. Please keep in mind that may not be the case. A kitty we had been caring for in our back yard since she was a kitten then became pregnant her self. We tried our best to capture her to get her fixed - but she was to afraid of us, even tho we fed & housed her for so long. HER siblings also lived in our yard. When she gave birth, they were all care givers so mommy could go out now & then. One day she didn't come back. Lucky for the kittens, I was able to get them to eat food that I had made small enough & wet enought for them to handle. By that time, I had already gotten one of them into the house - & he is here to this day. But momma never came home. Had she abandoned them? No - a neighbor two blocks down told us she had been killed by a neighbor's dog. At that time, they didn't know about her little family, or that they lived in our yard. The aunt took over their care, until we were able to catch them & take them to a shelter. Did they get homes? Did they survive? I don't know. But there one uncle still lives in the yard now - two years later. I will be capturing him this fall too. He just can't survive another winter here on his own. Last year 3 cats died out there & I had to deal with their remains. It broke my heart. It will break my heart to take away his freedom also - but I'm moving away - so there will be no one here to take care of him. More sadness. But the main point here is that mom didn't always abandon her babies. She may have been picked up by the authorities, or killed. Mommies don't often just leave little babies.
