Foster Kitten Update

I know something you don't know. I know something you don't know...

Okay, you know darn well that I can't keep a secret. Our future foster babies have been sighted!! Their mama left her den while my friend was out in her yard. So she peeked in and saw...

Three teeny tiny babies. Two torbies (torties maybe?) and one orange. My best guess is that we're getting two girls and a boy, but don't quote me on it. They are two weeks old now. Their itty bitty eyes have opened and their ears are still curled over their teeny tiny heads. I'm swooning and I haven't even seen them yet!

Gee, I hope the orange one looks like its big brother.

If Mama Marmie follows her usual pattern, she will bring the babies to the yard for lessons on eating solid food in another couple weeks. Then it will be a quick few days of learning how to trust the human in the yard before Mama leaves her babies behind for foster. I imagine they will be here in mid-May.

Hang on. It's just a little while longer :)

I also know something else that you don't know yet...

But I'm holding onto this secret for another few days. Business decisions have been made. Name chosen, registration paperwork underway, website domain name in the works, business cards designed, locating providers for insurance and first aid classes. This is becoming addictive.

I'll let the kitten namers (plural) know in plenty of time to make their decisions. Just waiting to make sure everything is truly and legally mine first.

  1. Ooh, ooh I am so excited! (cause heck if I can't have a real life I can at least vicariously enjoy the adventure of yours)

  2. Good luck with the kitts (and that darned elusive momma cat). :) Can't wait to hear all the business news!

  3. Congrats on the biz news. I hope the babies show themselves soon! Keep us posted on Mom, too. I’m looking forward to hearing a happy ending to her baby-biz story.
