Yes! I feel like we won the kitten lottery! After contacting many shelters via Petfinder.com, visiting the MSPCA and Animal Rescue League, and so on, to no avail because during the winter in New England there just are not many kittens to be had, and some of them are too sick to adopt, tonight we hit the jackpot. Three brothers, 12 weeks old, rescued by Patti of Feline Friends in Salem, New Hampshire.
They were found with their mother under a shed on a night when it was only 11 degrees out. Their mother was quite friendly, and was adopted already, leaving the three boys in a foster home until last week. They are all tabbies! We love boy tabbies, have always had great luck with them, and we wanted three, one for me, one for corwin, and one for Kate (who can’t keep a cat in her own apartment because her roomie is seriously allergic). So once we found out this trio of 12-week-old tabby boys was available, I put on the full court press, dragging out all our “we’re an A-1 cat rearing household!” facts I could think of in the application. (These days they won’t just let a cat go to anyone who wants one. Too many animals end up back on the streets or in the shelters when people aren’t prepared to keep them well. We promised to keep them indoors, never to declaw them, et cetera.)
Anyway, as promised, pic spam! (Click thru to my Picasa album)
