During the summer our semi-local no kill shelter was inundated with cats and kittens; at one point there were nearly 400 cats and kittens in their care. They sent out a plea for temporary foster homes and we ended up bringing Chandler and Pansy home for about a month.
They weren’t even two pounds when we brought them home. Frankie is our baby, and he’s five now, so it had been a while since we’d had tiny little kittens in the house. They have so much energy when they’re that little! Everything was interesting to them, and every day was an adventure.
We had to keep Chandler and Pansy in a separate room because Duke seems to believe that tiny furry creatures are snacks, not guests, but we spent lots of time playing and cuddling with them. And being climbed. Apparently we both make great human jungle gyms.
After about a month the shelter had adopted out enough cats and kittens to have a little breathing room and Chandler and Pansy were able to go back to the shelter to be put up for adoption. We really enjoyed having them. It was a lot of fun to watch them explore, grow, and really start to develop their personalities.
