I think the last foster I updated with was Big Joe. He got adopted to a wonderful family!
Since then, we fostered a momma with 5 kittens (MAN wee ones are a ton of work!)
Unfortunately since the kittens wouldn't sit still for more than .00025 seconds, I couldn't get pics of them. There were 4 girls and 1 boy, and 3 of them went to one home and 2 went to another. Momma went back to the family that gave her up to the rescue. (She was spayed first, of course).
I don't have pics of Jinx (the mommy) on my computer right now, but will try and get some up. She had the striped pattern with splashes of both orange and gray.
Then we got Mystic. Very pretty little female who was declawed and put outside to fend for herself.
Needless to say, she wasn't in the best of shape. She was skin and bones, but despite what she's been through, she's a total sweetie. However, she does NOT do well in the car.... Pukes and poops....
It's hard to get a good picture of her, but here's the best shot I got.
Right now we have Buddha. She was surrendered to the shelter with her sister after their owner passed away. They were scheduled to be euthanized, so the rescue pulled them. Mystic is currently at Petco.
Buddha does not do well at Petco. The first time we brought her in for the Saturday adoption event, she did pretty good and got a lot of attention. Since she was getting so much attention, we left her there for a few days. I went in to check on her on Wednesday, and she wasn't doing well at all. She was in the back of her cage, hissing and growling at anyone who passed by, so I brought her back home.
So today was Petco day again. She sat in her litter box the whole time and didn't look very happy. Went to go pick her up and she was hissing, clawing, biting, etc. She was terrified. She peed and pooped herself, so we had to get her out of there asap.
She clawed me pretty good, and it took a total of 5 people (including me) to get her in a kennel so we could take her back home.
I think she associates the cages at Petco with the stressful environment of being at the shelter.
She's not good with other cats (except for her calico sister).
She's not like that at home, though. She doesn't really care to be handled, but she's a total sweetie and rubs up on us and gives all kinds of lovin's, purring like a motorboat. It was really hard and sad to see her so scared.
Here's a couple of pictures of her. She's six years old.
And just because, her 'sister' that was surrendered and pulled with her. I don't remember her name, but she's 10.
