One of the things I have wanted to do for many years was to foster very young kittens but, due to working full time, it was impossible as they need to be fed frequently throughout the day and night. Well today my wish came true. I am now fostering 2 little 3 week old kittens. They will stay with me until they are 8-10 weeks old and will then go to a foster carer who will find them a forever home. They are gorgeous - one is quite cheeky. I feel very blessed to have this wish come true. In case you didn't notice, I am completely smitten by both of them

Hi Biteybird, they are through a rescue organisation. They were left outside a vet's office in very hot weather conditions and were put on hot concrete. When they were found, the vet had to rehydrate them. They were meowing at 9pm tonight - feed is scheduled for 10pm so they have been attached to me for an hour. Have just put them to bed. I had them set up in the study - have now moved them to my bedroom. Big mistake I know but they are having to adjust to new surroundings so it is best that I am close by as they both seem to have taken a liking to me. Poor old Emma doesn't know what to make of it all. She is very concerned about them but I don't trust her near them - not yet anyway.

My adorable little foster kittens are now ready for the next step. They are going to another foster carer on Sunday who will arrange for their adoption. Hopefully they will be adopted together. I cant tell you how much joy they give me. They are very affectionate and when they have finished raging through the house destroying everything they can find, they seek me out and curl up on me to go to sleep. I will miss them greatly. However, there is a little 4 week old female kitty who has just been rescued from the pound, so I will be taking her until she is big enough to move on. The dog will be glad to get rid of the kitties as she doesn't like them at all. Wait till she sees they are being replaced by another one
Hi Jan, somehow I missed seeing your last two posts! These kittens sound great and they're very lucky to have an attentive foster carer until they find a new home. Poor Shah, having to compete with all these inferior species...
