New to fostering

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello! My name is Jen and I currently am fostering 4 kittens (3 are polydactl). We (my family) have 2 cats of our own and a kitten named Callie. Sarah, 4 years old, is my baby and Prissy, 5 years old, is my brother's cat. We also have 2 mini-dachschunds, Tilly and Willy, and 2 cockatiels, Cameo and Ave.

The kittens are each grey (Skit), white and grey (Ramby), black (Blackey), and tabby (Lovey) colored. Lovey is the only one with the normal 5 toes. I love cats and am happy to find this board! I have an obsession with tabby cats and also adore the flat faced cats. I've never had a long haired cat and am noticing allergies to these 4 kittens, which is dissapointing.

I'm used to training, feeding, grooming, and doing medicine for the animals. MY mom and brother just play with them, lol.

Welcome to TheCatSite, Y'all

and glad you could make it! THANK YOU for fostering and for loving and adopting multiple cats...we are 9! rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered of course! "normal"-toed cats ranging in age from 2 years to pushing 17, and one devoted servant. Your family sounds wonderful!

We love tabbies, too; we should, as two of us, Samuda and Sahra, ARE tabbies! and Nicolas is a yellow tabby, so he counts in there, too! We run the gamut from tabby to tuxedo, from snowshoe to ebony, calico to tortoiseshell! and the thing we have in common is that we were all rescued off the streets (or desert sands) and are all loved 100% by our loyal servant! who's lived with, and loved, cats all her life.

FYI, there are medications that can help with allergies. Zyrtec is one I've heard of, and it's available from your doctor. I've heard it's very effective.

Again, welcome!
