CatsPride, I foster for my local humane society, so fortunately I don't have to do any of the work for finding them a home. When they reach 8 weeks and 2 pounds, I will bring them in to be neutered and adopted out--fortunately, kittens go pretty fast. I wish I could keep one, but we're at our personal limit of 3 cats.
Also, if I took her somewhere to be spayed right now I would be banned from fostering for them! I have to do what they want for the cats. If they need medical care at all, it always has to go through the shelter.
I cannot take her from them anyway--space logistics in my house for one thing, and time for another. I've bottle-fed kittens just for a weekend last summer, and that was so exhausting--I work 10-hour days and there's no way I would have the time! When I told the shelter I could foster again, I said that I could only take kittens that were either self-sufficient (on solid food and could be left alone for half the day) or nursing from their mom still. Between my 3 cats, long work days, and other obligations (I have a choir rehearsal tomorrow after work and will be gone from 6:30AM - 10:30PM, for instance), I simply cannot do anything more.
She has all the dry food she wants (I snuck in some Wellness Core into the mix with the Science Diet crud that the shelter requires I feed her), plus canned food as fast as she can eat it, tons of treats, and if she still isn't eating after work today I'm going to pick up some nutri-cal gel and KMR to mix with her food. Any other ideas? Someone at the pet supply store suggested making a "slushie" with crushed dry food, KMR, and canned tuna in water, and then heating it up to be extra stinky.
Also, since the kittens haven't even figured out that cat food can be eaten, and I'm not able to be there to supervise, they may also starve if I separate the mom, and she may go nuts trying to get to them.
Gabby, the shelter here pretty much insists on naming litters with a theme or in pairs/threes. They went to a seminar and one of the tips they got for how to adopt out more cats was to name cats in sets, so that people will say "oh, look at those kitties, Dolce and Gabbana. I want both, because it would be sad to separate them!" Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but anything helps, right? Also, since Glee is so popular and I pretty much picked the 4 most popular characters (I went to the Glee Live concert last Thursday, and these 4 guys got the biggest screams), I'm hoping that some fourteen-year-old girl is going to see them and beg her mom to get 2, or all four.
