Jill says: We brought Flipper home to join Isabella's litter of four in foster care when we took Isabella back to the Fredericton SPCA. Flipper was found by herself just outside the city. She has the cutest feet ever... two extra toes on each front foot and one extra on each back foot! Right away she got along really well with the Isabella's kittens. Within half an hour they were cuddled up together. No hissing or anything! Flipper was very independent and could entertain herself with any toy. She was one of the weirdest kittens we've fostered... I mean that in a good way! She will definitely always stand out. Her favourite thing to do was march on the blanket on the back of our couch and try to suckle it. She actually taught the other kittens how to do it! I don't know if they they were comforted by it because it was soft and fleecy (possibly like their mom?) but they sure left it nice and slobbery for me when I sat down. We returned Flipper to the SPCA last week, when she had just a few more ounces to put on before she could go up for adoption. We hope by the time you're reading this Flipper will be in her new home.

UPDATE: Flipper got adopted June 20 after being at the shelter for a month! Thanks to Brittany, who saw Flipper on the Daily Kitten and went to get her and bring her home!

I love her already. ^_^ If I lived in the same area I would take her home this instance.
I'm sure it won't be hard to find her a home. :)

She is so adorable! What better to use to conceal a big yawn than a super-sized paw? How cute is she?!

Gorgeous! We have a cat who used to love sucking on those fluffy dishcloths - she would even steal them out of the washing basket! Flipper is lovely, what a pretty kitten.

Yes, yes, yes. Flipper's colors of coat and eyes are so appealing, and the description of her ways, her personality, seal the deal. What a charmer.

She's a real cutie so she should be in a happy home soon. My late beloved Andrew used to suck on clothing while kneading and purring. It was quite endearing and I miss hearing that wonderful sound of contentment.

You can see how large Flipper's paws are in this photo. What better way to keep claws sharp than to knead on the sofa blanket. My Tony(3 yrs) has a fake fur throw that I call his "Mommy" blanket as he loves to suck and knead it and then he is so content he takes a "cat" nap. I hope that Flipper has been adopted as she is a beautiful girl.

Big fan of poly-dactyls,too! Boo-Boo, my Mom's blue point Siamese, never munched on a blanket until I spent almost a year making a king-sized afghan for my parents. Little stinker ate almost three squares in the middle and it never made him sick!

Has this beauty been adopted yet?? I can't believe that she could still be waiting for her fur-ever home!!

hooray! Flipper got adopted today after being at the shelter for over a month. i hope she is very happy in her forever home!

Flipper's new mommy here, she is doing very well in her new home and literally only stops purring long enough to sleep and eat. I've never had a kitten that loved to give kisses so much as her :)
jill hudgins -
@Brittany: That's so great! I'm so glad that Flipper found a wonderful new home and that she is very happy. Please post some pictures for us as she grows up!

Oh Brittany, I don't know how you can stand all of this cuteness!! You must have to turn away once in a while to keep from passing out!! ;)

Have fun with her, and give her pets from Nancy in Florida! :)
