Catherine says: I began fostering kittens and cats in late 2007 after the death of my beloved Smoggy, and in his honor. After a full first year of fostering, I wasn't sure how soon my services would be needed, but I need not have worried as I got a call on January 1, 2009. Actually, it seems it will be a long time before there is any kind of control over the numbers of kittens that are being born.

Anyhow, I went and picked up three little street kitties. We named them Cookie, Willow, and Digby (the only boy). We think they had it a bit rough out there as they were pretty dirty… but the funniest thing is that we gave each of them a bath and they didn't seem to mind it all -- almost like they were familiar with being bathed -- and they each enjoyed the blowdryer session. They were all very happy little souls and very, very purry. The ideal kittens. :D All three were adopted into loving homes by the second week of February 2009.

What a perfect kitten picture- with Cookie and Willow together. All three look like nice babies. Smoggy would be very happy and proud about how many little kittens you fostered in his memory

All so sweet, but I don't think they are all related siblings. Maybe Digby was the outlier. Thanks, Catherine.

Gosh they are so cute! Of course I want them all but disability took the joy of fostering away from me. I still love kittens and loved to watch them flourish!
