Update for Kitten Fund

Dear kitten friends,

Zoey may be the only kitten “on campus” at Tabby’s Place, but we’ve got a growing delegation of little ones in foster homes.

Teenagers Coco and Chanel (pictured here) are currently staying with staff member Josie. These nervous girls have a long way to go in learning to trust, but we know Josie’s up to the task.

Similarly, three month old feral-born siblings Bertie and Ernestine are learning the lessons of love with staff member Jess. Despite their young age, this brother/sister pair is quite feisty (Jess already bears scars), but we’re confident they’ll come around. After all, this is the same Jess who helped Skyler and Marie learn to love being loved — so Ernestine and Bertie are in the right hands.

Finally, one of our volunteers is fostering little Quinn, a darling tuxedo teenager with mobility issues. We’re still getting to the bottom of what, exactly, is wrong with Quinn, but we couldn’t be happier that she’s in a loving home.

This winter has stayed quite cold, quite late into the season, so much so that all the early-blooming flowers are still biding their time. No easing into spring for them; they’ll all burst forth together on the first warm days. Will kitten season be the same this year? Will we start seeing a trickle of kittenhood arriving soon, or will we be inundated with scores of kittens, as we were last year? Time will tell. In the meantime, we’ll keep a lookout for those first flowers — and first kittens!

Thank you, as always, for your generous support of our littlest cats.
