as the day goes on



First we clear the cage a little, to allow for games that won't result in water, litter and food being spilled. We make a hammock from dowel and a scrap of fleece. That goes down very well.


Hammocks are great for lazing in, dangling a tail and a leg.


And then we have a big, purring cuddle. Not so wild after all.

Now if and when the girls come round a little, we might be able to play outside the cage....

Two things, quickies - does he/is he going to have a name? He's going to stay isn't he? O, and a third, are there any more?

No name, Liz, because that's the way to get too attached, and I think I'd like to be a foster carer for a while - feels like it might be fun! He has 2 sisters, one being prepared for fostering, and the other (the one I thought looked like a gremlin) already with a foster carer who won't part with her. Why, want one? I've got one!

the hammock ... sigh
the sweet black face ...
with the odd bit of white
the little foot hanging out

sigh, sigh, sigh

He's good looking but "we" think Oliver is much better suited to Miss Millie.

I think you would choose a wonderful name and perhaps might reconsider.

Thanks for sharing this; you are a great foster mom and the rescue agency is lucky to have you. Let's hope this blog promotes a greater interest in their work. Like you, I already have two rescue cats and dare not come any closer to the cuties than your blog, they do melt your heart. OllieV

Popped in via Woozles blog and have had a great read through right to the bottom! I have done stained glass and went off it at the cement stage! Waaay too mucky though I love my finished piece. Am v impressed you are fostering cats, we have five permant residents and I don't think I could go through the introduction bit on a regular basis but well done you he looks v handsome and your usual house guests are beautiful girls.
We live about an hour away from Oban and have been to Mull a couple of times, love it love it one of my favorite ever places. And the Cheese mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm!!
Lovely blog

A foster carer for kittens. I didn't know there was such a job. How tempting...

(My verification word is "coodi". Seems appropriate. Kitten is very cood.)

rachel said...

He's cood, all right. It's my bedtime and he's just waking up to play noisy games in his cage. Fostering is a great job so far; I hope he gets rehomed soon though, because he needs to be with someone who'll love him and play with him, give him a name and the run of their home.

Millie still hates him....

Q: Why do so few of you nice commenters have an email contact? Come out of hiding!

Q: Why do I have so many secret readers who only pop up now and again, and so few Followers? Don't understand....

I think it's wonderful that you are a foster carer for cats. I would get too attached to them and wouldn't want to give them up. Millie and Lottie are adorable - as is the little black tom kittie.
