Mouse’s Kittens–Ready for Their Debut, or, They Leave the Foster Nest

Today was weigh-in for the foster kittens; got them bundled into the carrier and over to the East Bay SPCA, where the wonderful Mimi put them on the scales to see if each was at the 2 pound benchmark for spay/neuter and the adoption floor!

Last night all 4 of them got to take a field trip into Bob’s big office room, where they ran and played and caused general mayhem. They had been going in one at a time for a chance to have some “me” time, but this time it was kitten party!

I spent a little time with them this morning before taking them down to see Mimi. It was hard to make myself get going; I could spend hours in my pajamas sitting on the floor playing with kittens. And some day maybe I will have time to with another litter of kittens. But for now, maybe I will get some studying done!

I’m really going to miss them but they are all 4 wonderful cats with their individual, quirky personalities. I know they will all find wonderful homes! Thank you to Robert Ward for letting me fill the house with kittens! And thank you to everyone at the East Bay SPCA for working tirelessly to find homes for cats and dogs in our community. Adopt a shelter pet!
