Catherine says: I began fostering kittens in 2007, about a year after my beloved Smoggy passed away at almost 18 years of age. No kitty could ever replace him, so I thought fostering little ones in honor of Smoggy would be a better way to make a difference... saving lives one kitten at a time. I began volunteering for the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, and this litter was my first group of fosters, and my first time being around kittens in 20 years. I had forgotten how cute they are!

Latte was a great guy, a great all-rounder. He was very smoochy and a real go-getter. I loved his angelic face. And best of all, you could hear his purr from across the room. Leccy was a gorgeous gal, very, very smoochy, and loved spending time with me. She and Tabby were especially loving with each other. Tabby was an adorable gal. She was very loving towards all her siblings and I think she had a cleaning fetish. I have always loved tabby cats and Tabby just reinforced this. Carla made the biggest changes while she was with me. At first she was a shy outsider, not wanting to get involved, but eventually she became the life of the party. I loved her pink nose and black chin. Carla and Latte always had a lot of fun together playing chasey.

I'm happy to report they were all adopted! For some crazy reason Carla was not adopted as soon as we had expected {she was such a sweetie, I didn't understand it} and after about a week at the shelter she developed an eye infection, so I was more than happy to have her return "home" to be nursed back to good health with lashings of love. Two weeks later she was adopted into a wonderful forever home, just like her siblings. I was so proud of all of them. It was a wonderful first fostering experience and I was hooked. Many more litters have followed since. ;-)
