    As they were when they came to me. Delight, Gaiety, Mirth, Glee, and Happiness. I will try to upload the photo of Happiness taken before she went to her forever home. I could not get it to upload here.

    Sorry Ive been away for a while. Its a long story. Id like to come back and tell Happiness happy story.

    Happiness came to us as a scrawny, desperately sick new mother with four equally sick nursing kittens of about 3-4 weeks. They all had respiratory infections, and the kittens kept having to...

    One of the most rewarding fostering experiences I've had happened two or three years ago. I'd agreed to take a mother and her litter of week-old kittens, but at the last minute Abbey Cats asked if I could take a 4-5 month old kitten with a broken leg to the vet (I live near the vet we use). Of course I agreed. When the volunteer driver arrived with my rescues, it was obvious that the kitten was much younger than we'd been told; in fact, the vet put her at 5-6 weeks! She had been tossed out...

    Martina has suddenly gone into heat. Did not pass Go, did not collect $200, just put the kids on notice that the bar was closed and went into heat. She seems to have forgotten that this is how she got into this mess in the first place. Then she bolted out the front door between the legs of a delivery man and wouldnt come back. I looked for her for two days and finally found her passed out on my neighbours front door mat, with a big orange tom sitting beside her. She was exhausted. Her suitor...

    The little brats and their brothers have formed S.O.F.T., or the Society Of Furry Terrorists. They have pulled down the living room curtains and are working on the window screens. They scoop all the water out of the water bowls and spill it on the floor, and then get into the bowls and groom themselves. Then they complain because they have to drink out of the toilet. They eat the wet food right out of the dogs' mouths because they know the dogs aren't allowed to fight back. They pull the...

    Martina's kittens have learned the fine art of blackmail. Snowflake, our golden/border collie cross, knows she isn't allowed to growl or bark at kittens, no matter how annoying they might become. She grumbles a bit and mutters under her breath, but she's really pretty tolerant of them. Martina's crew have figured this out; they wait until her food gets put down and then swarm the dish. They all try to finish the wet dollops before she can get any of it. If she whimpers or tries to push her...

    As with most litters, each kitten has showed signs of a distinct personality from the beginning. Anna was the first to open her eyes and her mouth. Any time any human or animal entered the room, she had something to say about it. Elena was shy and timid, as was Igor. Yuri was brash and confident, and Andrei was sweet and compliant. Being picked up and passed around didnt bother him, and neither did being left alone. Anna, Yuri and Andrei were the first to climb out of the nest and explore...
