The foster kittens we used to have -- Waverly, Willis, Wyatt, and Waldo -- all got adopted. Willis and Waldo got adopted together by a lady who has two dogs. And then a week later, Waverly and Wyatt got adopted together, but Mom wasn't there when the adoption happened at PetSmart, so she doesn't know who adopted them. She just knows that when she went to pick them up, they had just got adopted, and so she felt kind of sad to come home with no kittens.
But now we have FIVE new kittens, and we are not sad anymore! The new kittens all have names that start with "M." Four of them are littermates, and the fifth one is younger, and he isn't related to the other ones, but he doesn't know that.
Then a lady brought in a feral mama cat and her four kittens. The lady had been feeding these cats, and she caught them in a trap. So Aunt Tania took them home with her, but one of the kittens was puny, and it died. Meanwhile, Aunt Tania and the other people at the shelter figured out that Moxie was really part of this same litter, because the lady who brought the litter in lived nextdoor to the man who brought Moxie in.
I don't know exactly when all this happened, but I do know that on August 21st, a lady brought in a tiny gray kitten who was about 2 weeks old. This kitten got abandoned by his mama. The lady knew for sure that that is what happened because she had been feeding some feral cats, and one had kittens, but then she abandoned one. Which probably meant that it was sick or something.
Okay, well, all of that happened, and then last Monday, Mom was ready to foster some more kittens. She didn't have to take all five of the kittens, but she decided to do it because she is sort of crazy like that. The four littermates were about five weeks old then. Mickey and Moxie already had names, and there was also another Siamese-mix girl named Macie. She was the most puny kitten after the one who died, so Aunt Tania was taking special care of her and put her in a cage with Mickey, so he wouldn't be lonely.
