Mom here: I know I am preaching to the choir with this next paragraph or two but today when I went to get Katie some fuds, there were two large multilevel wire cages in the pet store with many babies inside. There was one cage just for two kittens who are sisters, needing socialization. The other cages had perhaps 8 more kittens, maybe 10. Precious little 8 weeks old innocent little ones well taken care of by the Feral Cat Society nearby. I stayed and talked and patted some. The sisters needed more socialization and were afraid of me but quietly so. The lady I spoke to of three who were there took one girl out and laid her in her arm. The little girls ears were back but other than that, she "said" nothing. The woman who was showing her to me said how desperate they are for foster homes. I told her I would speak to my friends and try to find someone and God bless her tender heart, tears ran down her face.
I have deep appreciation for all who foster these babies in their homes and work so hard for their welfare. They tale responsibility and care for kittens and cats who are here on this earth through no fault of their own--- but through "owners" who will NOT spay and neuter their cats. And I wish Vets would charge half of what they do for that particular procedure! All of you furriends who foster, as does Random Felines for example are deep in my heart with appreciation. I apologize for not being able to think of the others, as I know there are plenty in our CB community. I'm in a hurry to get to Knoxville and I have to leave in a few..so forgive my not mentioning all of the wonderful fostering families we have. You are worth your weight in gemstones! The most precious gems too, because all of YOU are precious gems too. Seeing that woman's tears pierced my heart. Blessings on her and the others and all of the people who work so hard every day to help the helpless. Thank you. I have tears right now.

|These babies are very playful and dear.|
|Same kitties. I could not get a picture of the three house panfers in the next cage over.|
