I can’t see or walk very good yet
and I am too little to take care of myself,
so I am grateful that you gave me a foster mom
and a safe place to stay.
Without her, I don’t know where I would be right now.
Not only did she save my life, she also brought my mom into her home and saved the lives of 3 other baby kittens too.
I intend to repay my foster mom for her kindness as soon as I can. When I am a little bigger, I am going to jump up and sit on her lap and purr as loudly as I can. That way she will know that I love her as much as she has loved me.
I do understand that as soon as I get old enough, someone is going to adopt me and take me away to my furever home. I am excited about that, but thinking about moving also makes me feel sad. I will miss my foster mom when I go.
Whatever happens God, I have faith that you will guide me down the right path.
Thank you for listening to my prayer.
Now I have to sleep again, because that’s what baby kittens do.
Sweet dreams all!
***My neighbor is a volunteer with the local animal shelter, and she is currently the foster mom to the mother cat and 4 baby kittens in these photos. Even though I have 2 cats of my own, this is the first time that I have ever seen kittens so small. An interesting experience!
++ UPDATE ++ July 8, 2018
The 4 kittens are now 10 weeks old, full of curiosity, and learning more about the world around them every day. They are ready to be adopted and have been working hard to perfect their basic cat skills, such as:
A cat who knows how to stalk stealthily is guaranteed to keep your house free of unwanted bugs and rodents.
HUGGING and PURRING
These two priceless cat skills have the power to lift and heal a tired soul. Always great to have a little extra love and affection!
CELL PHONE CALLING and TEXTING
Definitely not basic cat skills, but it is important to at least attempt to understand how to use a cell phone in this digital age. Always good to be prepared. Might need to dial 911 one day, and ask the fire department for help getting out of a tree.
This is a very difficult skill to perfect–especially for a kitten. I have a lot of unusable blurry photos of gray ‘blurs’ running, jumping, and playing, so I appreciated the ones who decided to stop for a few seconds and pose for the camera. Without a doubt, the next two kittens were practicing their “Please Adopt Me” poses. Absolutely perfect!
We are waiting with open arms.
