Two of the kittens are going to a wonderful family that already has one older kitty and 2 sweet puppy dogs AND two

older kids!  Mom is a realtor and the entire family just loves animals!  JORDAN & DONNIE were adopted by this family and these kittens will be able to leave around the 1st of June.  As soon as they have their 2nd vet visit and 2nd booster shot, they will be ready to go!  Mama Hissy Fit needs to gain some weight and stop nursing all these babies soon!  Right now Hissy is spending days in room 7 and nights in with the kittens.  I am working on slowing weaning them from her.  All is going well, and believe it or not, Hissy just LOVES being in the teenage room (since she is one herself) and she seems so much happier and relaxed in there!!!  Please spend time with her if you can!  This is a picture of the two older kids adopting JORDAN & DONNIE!!!  WISH them all a good life and lots of fun!!!

The other 3 kittens, JOHNATHAN, JOEY & DANNY are being adopted by a former FURR client that already has 2 of our cats…..FERN & MYRTLE!!!  Kathryn decided that she really wanted at least ONE kitten, but when she met the gang, she just couldn’t decide between the 3 unadopted kittens, so she decided to take all three!!!  Kathryn is a wonderful cat MOM and she is taking wonderful care of FERN & MYRTLE!  She tells me that FERN is still very shy, but absolutely gorgeous and totally in love with her senior kitty!  MYRTLE is sweet, loving and absolutely stunning!  She will now have 6 kitties, but that’s ok for Kathryn!  She lives alone and her kitties are her family!  She will soon be surrounded with lots of purrs & biscuits!!!  Look at this cute picture of Kathryn with her 3 new babies!!!  All the kittens should be leaving by the first of June!!!

ORIGINAL ADOPTION STORY

Three weeks ago this coming Saturday (around 4/1), a rescuer friend of mine (Huanita) asked me to foster a feral mama kitty about to POP with kittens.  The mama cat had been trapped in Rock Hill and was going to be turned into A/C to be euthanized. She was feral, so no one wanted to deal with her, but I agreed to take her in until she had her babies.  Two days after receiving her, she had 5 little boy kittens! The kittens will be 3 weeks old on 4/22/17. They are fat, happy and wanting to play!  It has been a joy watching them grow.  Thanks to Angela for being here right after they were born to make sure all went well – she was the first one to see them!!!

We have named the 5 boys after the “New Kids on the Block” band, so we have the following:
  • BUFF KITTEN is “Jonathan”
  • GRAY TABBY KITTEN is “Donnie”
  • BLACK KITTEN W/WHITE PAWS is “Danny”
  • ORANGE TABBY KITTEN is “Joey”
  • LILAC POINT KITTEN is “Jordan”

These kittens are now available for adoption now, as of mid-April, however they will not be old enough to be ready for delivery to their new families for a few more weeks.  If someone is willing to take the Mama Kitty along with one of her babies, we will reduce the adoption fee which is $150 per kitten (which includes all vet work & more!)

The kittens have already graduated to another big container and tomorrow they will graduate again to an even larger container!   Before long, they will have run of the entire room & we all know how much fun (and how challenging!) that is! Mama is getting a lot better about being petted. She needs a LOT of loving, petting & reassurance.  She is getting sweeter every day and a lot more trusting of us coming into her room!

Like all FURR kitties, these kitties are fully vetted with vaccinations and spaying/neutering by the time they are delivered to their adoptive families. The Adoption fee also includes Microchipping to an approved home only!

For adoption information or to schedule a visit to the FURR lodge to meet this kitty, please email FURR President and Founder, Terry Schultz, at adoptafurrcat@gmail.coom.

If you are not ready to adopt a kitty, please consider fostering or sponsoring. All donations are tax deductible.
