Suey Sunshine's Halfway House

Back in action! Yesterday, a couple brought two little girl kittens that their woofie had found in their garden into the clinic mum and our friend Greta work in. It is comparatively rare for a ginger kitten to be a girl, so these two are a bit special. Mum brought the girls home after her shift to get them cleaned up, wormed, and flea free, before they went to Greta's house where they will stay in foster care.
About an hour after mum got home, Greta phoned her to say a lady had dropped off another pair! These two were boys, and were the twins of the girls. They were found in the same laneway, so are clearly related. The little ginger boy had slightly runny eyes, so the boys and the girls are being kept seperate for the moment, while they are pumped full of immune boosters. In the 24 hour period there has been no sneezing or nasal discharge, and no crusties formed on his eyes so we're hoping something just irritated his eyes. This is a picture of the boys having a snuggle with Greta after they were cleaned up. We think half the fleas in Sydney were living on this family! Greta reports that all four are eating well, and seem very happy to be itch-free and warm. There was lots of rain last night and most of today, so we are glad they are safe and warm inside. We're hoping they will be able to go to the Cat Protection Society when they are old enough to be desexed, but if the little boy has a kitty flu we will do it privately to make sure it's not passed to the other kitties there.

Oh my what cute little ginger girls. Hope they all find a wonderful forever home. How could anyone not want those characters. You people sure do a great job with your fostering.
Have a great day.

These babies are just the cutest! Mom saw a kitten in the pet store this past weekend (they foster and adopt out local strays). Holding a purry little kitten made her heart melt. She didn't bring it home to us.

I think it's funny...our word verification today is gingera!

Oh they are so gorgeous! It is so funny because you mention how it is rare for there to be ginger girls - we had one growing up, and the girl I work with had a ginger girl who gave birth to a litter of 6 ginger girls! But I do know that like 25% of gingers are girls. They are all super cute and we are so glad that they have a nice warm foster home to stay at until they find forever homes!!

Kari said...

Heavenly little babies! We are so happy they are in a safe and warm place. God bless them....and your mum and Greta too!

They are just adorable. Thank goodness they were rescued! It's sad to think they were flea ridden ~ it must have been so uncomfortable for them. We just know they will find a wonderful new forever home.

Oh! They are SO cute. We're glad they were rescued and they're safe. They will find Forever Homes in no time, we're sure. Felix wants to say that Ornj cats are the best! He's a bit prejudiced, being Ornj.

What cute little ginger kittens! We are so thrilled that they were all found.

MoMo said...
