I had some really generous food donations that kept everyone fed for the last few weeks but it’s time for a new wishlist for my foster kitties for October! I’ve had a few adoptions recently, which is always great to see, but I’ve still got a lot of work to do getting these kiddos (and young adults) into homes. Thanks to everyone in the Fediverse who’s been able to help out!
This evening, I would like to stick a second coat of paint on what I did earlier and sweep up in there again. Every time I move a piece of furniture, I find dirt, trash, and kitten food can lids. The legacy of the last #FosterKittens never ends!
After the closet wall gets a second coat of paint, I have one more wall in lime green, but I suspect I may need to buy another quart of paint for it. I'm down to about 3/8ths of a gallon and this is the largest wall in the room. #HomeImprovement
I wonder how many of my former #fosterkittens associate singing with love.
Hopefully all those other pet parents find the quirk adorable…I didn’t mean to warp them!
Foster Kitty Lucille, whose hormones decided she needed to be extremely horny for a solid week the minute her kittens reached 2 months old, then okay for a week, then extremely horny again before we finally got her to the spay clinic, is commiserating with me by gnawing on my fingers. #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon
Hey #caturday buddies! I'm a foster for a local rescue and I'm about to drop a bunch of money on flea treatment so this month I'm mostly just asking for help with canned food! It's been a really rough month — two former fosters are back with me for a bit because landlords are evil — and every little bit helps! #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon #MutualAid

My poor foster girl Misty must have had kittens at some point, because she's been grooming the kittens she shares a room with and occasionally letting a few of them comfort-nurse on her. She especially likes the little tortie Maddie, who came to us all on her own too. It breaks my heart to think about all that must have happened to her. She'll be ready for a new home of her own soon. #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon #AnimalRescue

Time for my updated donation wish list for July! We have so, so many cats and kittens this year 😭, though adoptions have been strong. 🤞 I'm all stocked up on kitten blankets and nutritional supplements, right now I just need FOOD! (And litter.) We go through so much food and litter y'all... #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon #MutualAid #CatRescue
So wow, Happy #Caturday to me!
The rescue I foster for did a big adoption event today at the local PetSmart, and we had a few people who had gotten their applications approved early and just needed to meet the kittens and decide which one to take home... and all three of my remaining L-litter babies were adopted! I'm ALL OUT OF BABIES!* 😭 #CatsOfMastodon #FosterKittens
*already have another litter lined up later this week
Time to break out the cable armour 🙄 The #FosterKittens can now reach the desk!
It's #Caturday! And I could one again use some help keeping my foster kiddos fed. :blobcat_cookie: I'm all set for litter donations for this month (and thanks so much!) but I could use some more canned food, since we're going through about 8 cans a day right now! Fortunately Misty turned out not to be pregnant, and baby Luke has been adopted, but Kitten Season has just begun! #MutualAid #CatsOfMastodon #FosterKittens
it's KITTEN SEASON! 😭😭😭 It's been a tsunami the past couple weeks. I still have a few older kittens looking for homes, and now I have this sweet mamacat and her four 4-week-old kittens we pulled from a full shelter, so I've added a few more age-appropriate things to the list this month. Donations from the community here have helped so much, THANK YOU! #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon #MutualAid #RescueCats

So yeah I have new babies! I'm fostering a mamacat and her 4 kittens, approx. 4 weeks old, that we pulled from a high-kill shelter that was too full. Got to drive nearly 6 hours round-trip through the VA mountains on Friday to pick up them and a couple other litters that went to other fosters. Everybody seems healthy except for a couple mild goopy eyes, which are being treated. Mama was a little growly with me at first but I think she's settled in now. #FosterKittens #CatRescue
I am exhausted from my kitten rescue adventure today -- drove about 6 hours round trip to pick up some babies (and one mama) from a shelter that didn't have space, and about half of that was in harrowing weather -- but look at this little face. LOOK AT IT. #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastododon #CatRescue
One of the other fosters at the rescue picked these fresh cat beans up this morning, she's working with our trapper to catch the mama now. There's a lot of pain and frustration in cat rescue but we do get to experience the joy of irresponsibly tiny babies. #KittenSeason #CatsOfMastodon #FosterKittens #CatRescue
The cat rescue I foster for has hit a really rough patch with fundraising (in no small part because Facebook has no functional user support) but we're still having to foot some pretty dire vet bills. We've started a GoFundMe to ask for help - with a modest $2,000 goal.
As a warning, there are some pretty rough stories of animal neglect in the description: https://www.gofundme.com/f/putting-marshmallows-best-foot-forward-more
Gonna be One Of Those People and jump in the #Caturday tag to plug my Amazon wish list for food for my foster kitties, because I had two adoption applications for four kittens fall through this week so I'm still going through a ridiculous number of cans of food every day and also feeling discouraged. (One decided the adoption fee was too high, and the other decided not to mention large dogs in the home.) #FosterKittens
This makes me so happy. I fostered the Tortie (Serena) when she came to my home with her 5 kittens. They were all adopted 💜One kitten, Mir, was returned after Christmas.
I knew the woman who adopted Serena was interested in a second cat, so I recommended to my foster agency that she be allowed to adopt Mir. That all happened yesterday. And here the two are, happy with each other in their forever home. Talk about a win-win-win.
Merry, Pippin, and Samwise thank you all for your help and your patience. #FosterKittens
As you may have noticed, I have foster kittens and cats! And they eat a lot of food! I foster for an official rescue, and they take care of stuff like vet bills, but I'm responsible for food and litter. So around this time every month I post my Amazon wishlist asking for help. Donations have kept me helping these babies until we find them homes! One case of food makes a huge difference! #FosterKittens #MutualAid #Kittens #CatsOfMastodon
Wishlist updated for March!
