Betsy says: My husband and I began fostering kitties last summer when a cat gave birth to two litters between April and July in our neighbor's yard. After our first two foster litters found new homes, we took in another litter in late September. This new group had been living in squalid conditions in a crawlspace beneath a crumbling home near downtown Richmond. The kittens looked to be about five weeks old when they came to us. They were chubby little things, with soft fur and personality plus. Four were grey-and-white tuxedos who looked very much alike, making it difficult to tell who was who. Audrey was the runt of the litter and the only all-black kitten in the bunch. She was quite shy, yet very loving and playful. She rapidly became an avid lap kitty, crawling up for an after-supper nap most evenings. Like her namesake, Miss Audrey Hepburn, our Audrey is sleek, petite, and ever so elite. She was adopted in early December, but sadly was unable to make friends with her new owners' resident feline. She's now in our care once again and is available for adoption, should anyone out there be interested. She's still petite for her age, but just as sweet and lovable as ever. :-)

I could never foster kitties because I'd never be able to give them up

They're all very cute, and I'm sure that Miss Audrey Fuzzburn (that's such a cute name) will find her permanent loving home soon!

AWWW What a precious baby!!! You live in Richmond, VA? I live in Virginia Beach, but am currently in Blacksburg. I would loveee to take her for my new apartment, but you said she doesn't do good with other cats? (we have 2 others at home). In any case, good luck with her!!!!

I just adopted a Bombay mix that loooks just like this baby except for the copper eyes. He is such a little devil! but I love him to pieces. He makes rescue #4 here. I have 2 tabbys 22 and 20 and a calico 7 years old and I so needed a kitten again! Jamie was found on the streets of Manhatten at about 3 weeks old. Now he rules the roost!
