I have failed. I am going to be super weird about adopting out the kittens and mamacat I've been fostering. I'm thinking a 10-page questionnaire. Sample questions include:
3. Will you name the kitten something cool and amazing?
19. What kind of voice will you use to talk to the kitten?
37. Will there be small children around, possibly torturing the kitten?
I don't really want to keep any of them, but I was there for their birth, their eyes opening, their first wobbly steps, their first purrs. Plus mamacat is SO friendly and so good with her kittens. It gives me all the feels!
It has been really really fun to watch their personalities arise. They obviously all have names: mamacat is Minnow, then the kittens are Monkey, Millie, Moonpie, and Meeshka.
|Meeshka, 2 hours old|
|Good mama Minnow with 2-day old kittens|
|Millie, 1 week old|
|Beautiful mama Minnow with 2 week old kittens|
|Millie, 3 weeks old|
|Moonpie, 3.5 weeks old|
|Clockwise starting in front: Millie, Moonpie, Monkey, and Meeshka. 1 month old!|
So if anyone wants to add an absolutely amazing kitten or very loving adult cat to their lives, hit me up and I'll send you the screening questionnaire! Or just come to the shelter and adopt them when they're 8 weeks old.
