Catherine says: I began fostering kittens and cats for the Lort Smith Animal Hospital and Shelter in Melbourne, Australia, in late 2007 after the death of my beloved cat Smoggy, and in his honor.

My fourth session for foster kittens for 2009 consisted of just two kittens, Victor (on the right) and Cleopatra. What little sweeties these two were! unrelated but acted like any other siblings, loving and hating each other… at the same time! ;) Victor was a very sick little guy when he arrived but grew into a gorgeous and healthy young man. Cleo wasn't too sick initially but got really bad and hated taking her medication. And I do mean the worst case of "I ain't taking that stuff" I have ever seen! But she got better with loads of love and some hardcore drugs and was eventually back to her glamourous self. Both were adopted into separate but loving homes.

Smoggy's Friends: Rupert, Parker, Belamy, Penny, Olive & Thomas
Smoggy's Friends: Willow, Cookie & Digby
Smoggy's Friends: Robert, Colin, Flicker & Pearl
Smoggy's Friends: Edmund, Delilah & Mouse
Smoggy's Friends: Milly, Polly, Cocoa, Boots & Randi
Smoggy's Friends: Mitey & Tufty
Smoggy's Friends: Latte, Leccy, Tabby & Carla

They are gorgeous. The poor babies were so sick. It is so good that they recovered and found loving homes.

Thunderous purrs from this corner too. A great job of fostering these babies--and when I look over your list, Smoggy would be so proud of you! You provide a beautiful setting for these sweeties to get better in.

Amazing nursing for two sick little ones. I love this photo because it shows the wondrous results - a beautiful, healthy and loving little girl. I'm so glad they found good homes.

I looked back at ALL of them in Catherine's list--her photography is wonderful and many of her kitties imprinted themselves on my heart! It was a super memory tour. I look forward to anything Catherine posts.
