Jill says: Isabella (aka Miss Noodle on the Fredericton SPCA Web site) came to us with her four kittens in early April. They came from the Saint John Animal Rescue League, which is a kill shelter and was very overcrowded. The Fredericton SPCA drove down and picked up several cats and litters of kittens to bring them to our shelter. I then picked up Isabella and her kittens and brought them home for some tender loving foster care.

Rambo may look cute but he lived up to his name! He loved to jump on top of and wrestle his brothers and sisters. He would even try to take on our adult cats.... that didn't go over to well with them! He had tons of energy and after you tired him out he'd cuddle right up with you. When we returned him to the shelter he was adopted right away and is now in his forever home.

Isabella was very skinny and probably only a year old. She was a great mom to her kittens considering it was probably her first litter. She was also very playful herself and loved to chase toy mice when she wasn't busy with her little ones. Unfortunately, when her kittens got sick with pneumonia she rejected them and she also started getting a bit aggressive with our own adult cats, so we took her back to the SPCA where she is currently waiting for someone to give her a forever home.

UPDATE from the Daily Kitten Krew: Jill wrote this blurb several days ago when Isabella was waiting to be adopted. Isabella's photo disappeared from the SPCA Web site today so we HOPE that means she found a forever home. We're waiting for Jill to check in with us and let us know if there's good news...

UPDATE II: Isabella did indeed get adopted!

Handful of cute, or pure handful? I would forgive any mishaps to that little face. So glad they all got a second chance and the love all little critters deserve!

HOW could this innocent little face possibly get into any mischief?? Such a cutie. And Isabella is a beauty, too.

Oh yes, a scamp! Running out of adjectives, but Rambo is perfection in the cat category.

Isabella--those eyes, that coat--a diva Mom. (A kill shelter is one that kills the overflow--yes, it is an oxymoron and all too common phenomenon.)
Cassie -
AnneFlat1, I believe a "kill shelter" just refers to any shelter that performs euthanasia in cases that AREN'T purely medically necessary, i.e. they have two many animals, this one's been here three months and hasn't been adopted yet, etc. Most shelters operate this way - usually other shelters are distinguished as "no-kill shelters."

Rambo is a beautiful boy and Isabella is gorgeous, too. I'm sure they're both in wonderful furrrever homes now, and I can't wait to see the other kittens!

It is too bad that humans do not spay and neuter because you end up in a situation like Isabella's with babies taking care of babies. I feel sorry for the mama cats as no one wants to adopt them. I hope that Isabella got adopted.
Rambo is a real little cuttie.

Is it just me, or does Rambo have a little bit of a raccoon's sharp expression? He's a feisty devil for sure and so endearing. Gosh, I miss my kitties.

What a cutie, and aren't the cute ones always the most trouble, lol! He is lovely and I am glad he found a good home. I hope Isabella did too, and she gets the chance to play and have fun herself without the responsibility of her own babies.
