The Fosters: Preview of the Berry Kittens

I got phone camera photos – not very good ones – but photos anyway of the kittens I’ll be picking up Wednesday. They are around 6 weeks old, a very fun age. They’ve been cared for by a woman who takes in lots of kittens, many neonatal, and cares for them herself. Because she has lots of litters, they have been living in large cages, so having a whole room to roam in Wednesday might be a bit of a shock to them, but I suspect they will adjust quickly. Three of them are kittens that this woman bottle-fed starting around 2 weeks old, so I’m told they are all very friendly. Our adoption coordinator, who met and sent me the photos says they are basically healthy but need a little help, and left antibiotics and eye ointment to start them on.

And this time I get to use the Berry names I’d planned to use with the last litter. Can’t wait to meet the little ones, two boys and two girls, in a few days. In the meantime, here are the photos I have and their names. Much more to come when they join us mid-week!

Gooseberry, “Goose” for short, a boy
Huckleberry, “Huck” for short, boy
Rasberry, “Raz” for short, a torti girl
Sugarberry, “Sugar” for short, calico girl

Amelia’s kittens got freed from their cones today and had quite the party this morning! Luckily, no one did anything bad to their incisions or anything, so the cones are off for good. They go to their forever homes on Sunday, and then I’ll give the foster room a good cleaning, and we’ll welcome the new group Wednesday. In the meantime, Bucky comes Saturday, (today by the time you read this) and we should have a few days to get to know him before the kittens arrive. Never a dull moment!

  1. The Berry Gang are so tiny…..the eye ointment should clear up those poor little eyes of theirs. How lucky they are to be cared for by you…….and Amelia’s kittens are off to their new “forever homes”. YAY!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. The Berry Gang is so lucky to be coming to your home! They will receive so much love and attention until they find their furever homes. Excited for you to bring Bucky into your home today! You have such a special gift with animals, Debra.

    1. Thanks, Cindy. I can’t wait to watch the kittens grow up with you and Amelia too. She’ll be so glad to finally have a whole house so she can be where her kittens are not sometimes!!!

    1. I can’t wait for them to be out of cages and have all the attention on just them. That alone should do wonders.

    1. I will miss Amelia and her gang, but three of them are going to one of my pet sitting clients so I will be seeing them here and there – woo hoo!

    1. I can’t wait to pick them up and get to know the little ones. Getting new fosters is a lot like Christmas morning!

  3. The new fosters are all adorable!! I don’t know where you get the energy to take care of foster kittens, foster dogs, and your own dogs all at the same time! I have a hard enough time taking care of Bogie and Ducky, and then juggling them with my two men in one!
