Hello there!

Right, that's it. It's high time we got some blog time around here! So I am taking it upon myself to tell you a little bit about us.We were brought in to the shelter with our mumcat when we were still in her tummy. Our mumcat is very sweet, so the shelter made the decision that she should be allowed to have the kittens, and then go through to adoption when we were ready to be seperated from her. As it was the busiest time of the year for the shelter, we were very lucky that our mum was such a lovebug, or it would have been a different story.

We stayed in a special area with our mumcat for several weeks after we were born. Then, on the day our foster-mum-to-be brought Odin and Thor in to be desexed, the shelter decided it was time to seperate us from our mumcat. We were driving her loopy, and had learned how to clean ourselves and use the litter box.

So we came home to meet our foster brother Fui and sister Suey (through the door, foster-mum is obsessively cautious after the Blossoms), and our new sisters Athena and Freja, and brothers Loki and Apollo. After a hiccup with super ear mites, we are settling in nicely.

This is my sister Sally. She is the biggest of our litter, but is also the biggest scaredy cat. When we first came to our foster home, she spent a lot of time hissing at shadows and growling at gusts of wind, but is getting better. She is getting better though, and even comes over to say hi to our foster mum when she comes into our room to visit. She likes playing rough and tumble with Apollo.
This is my sister Penny. She is the friendliest of the three of us, and loves to climb into laps. She has a monster purr, too! Her ears are pretty froot batty, don't you think?

We are getting along well with our two new sisters. This is me and Penny with Athena, who also loves to play games. We have learned that Freja is good for cuddles. Loki was the best big brother ever, he took such great care of us. He would even clean our faces after dinner!

It is great having brothers around, as we are a litter of just girls. We have fun with them. And since we're not related, I can say they are both pretty spunkalicious!

Loki and Thor will probably have his hoohaectomy at the same time as our mumcat, tomorrow. We are purring for them all to have speedy recoveries and find fabulous families.
I hope you are having a lovely week:)
From Polly Smitten-Kitten.

Ah jeeze. You guys are so sweet. If the PM had more room here, I bet she'd want to be fostering too.

Have a fun filled day kits!!

Kittens shouldn't worry about the size of their ears. My ears were big too, when I was a baby, but eventually I grew into them and now they're just the right size.

Happy Australia Day!

I was born in a shelter too, to a momma cat who can in pregnant. I think that's very special. And I'm pretty sure that Penny will grow into her ears. You are all very sweet and squeee inducing. I just wonder if, after means, Loki wasn't looking for seconds by cleaning your faces.

Good reporting, Polly! I'm glad the shelter let you all be borned!

Harley was born from a feral cat who just came in to be spayed, ear-notched and released, but was found to be full-term. So, they delivered the kitties that day and the mother was spayed and released (she was very, very feral and could not be kept at the shelter). The whole litter went directly into foster care.
