Hugs and Kisses

I'm here!  I'm still here!!

I've had some very sweet inquiries as to whether I'd fallen of the face of the Earth.  I had no intention of coming to a screeching halt with blogging - it seems to have just happened.

I have been taking in very tiny kittens to foster knowing in my heart that they may not ever be able to meet you.  I really don't want to subject anyone to sad stories, so until I have some certainty that things are good with the babies I guess I decided (without realizing it) to focus all my energies on them.

Sadly, I have lost a couple of the tinies. 

There are currently 8 kittens in my care. Three of the Dancers moved into their happy new homes, but Elizabeth is still here worming her way deeper and deeper into my heart.  SOMEBODY WONDERFUL PLEASE COME ADOPT HER!!

The remaining 7 are all works in progress.  They stabilize, they get diarrhea, they lose weight, they get better, they start the whole process over.

But we're hanging in there!  Rosie's doing her part - as always.  Here she is giving Guido some hugs and kisses.  He loves her right back.

Thanks so much for your good thoughts and positive energy.  It's truly a comfort to know you're out there wishing us well.




  1. So that is the 'famous' mysterious Guido!

  2. Whew! I was a silent worrier. I know you are doing your very best with the tinies. So glad they have your loving and expert care. And even when the outcome is sad, I am comforted knowing that they had the best chance possible. You are a sweetheart to take on this emotionally challenging work. And I will smile for a long time holding that precious image of Rosie and Guido!

  3. Oh good! I was worried. I understand, though. :) Best wishes to you and the tinies!

  4. Oh, we do wish you well, Sue! We wish you so much well, indeed!

    You are a brave woman to take on so many teeny tinies. I hope the rest make it!

    Keep on keepin' on!

  5. Bless you for taking on the fragile babies! I'll be sending good thoughts your way...well actually I've been doing it all along hoping everything was OK!

  6. I don't mind waiting a while for your posts. I every time I checked in and saw your "blurry eggplant" kitten post I would start to chuckle.

  7. Thanks for the update. Why are people so foolish, not realizing how fabulous Elizabeth is and beating down your door to adopt her? ;) I'm sorry about the tinies you've lost, and glad seven of them are hanging in there. The picture of Guido being loved on is precious.

  8. We're thankful you checked in, and are glad you're okay, Sue. Thank you for all you do for these babies. Sending purrs, prayers and hugs always.

  9. I can't even begin to express how heartwarming the picture of Rosie and Baby Guido is.

    I just love it; it reminds me of my boys Atticus and Gandalf, and the loving they heaped on their baby brother Malcolm when I adopted him at 6 weeks old. Malcolm is nearly 4 (!), and still adores his big brothers. And his big sister, although she has her own thoughts on the matter!

    Thanks for all you do!

  10. I was worried with out a new post. So sorry to hear some of your tinies did not make it. That must truly suck. But glad to know Rosie has Guido under her paw for some loving.

  11. From one foster mom to another, thank you for all you do! Sometimes its an emotional roller coaster, ups and downs, some live in your heart forever and some are in and out the door so fast, you wonder what happened. Take care. You and the kitties are in my prayers:)

  12. Very sorry to hear about the lost babies and will be sending super-positive rays straight to your house. Thanks for helping these special souls make their way into the world (and sometimes, alas, beyond).

  13. You're awesome! Love you : )

  14. Sending our biggest kitty purrs to the tiny babies in your care. Tears and sadness for those littlest ones that were only here so short a time.

    Can't wait to read about the teeny-weenies as they get big enough to make their debuts! Purrs for Elizabeth's family to find her soon and for Guido to keep getting bigger and stronger.

    Charlemagne, Tamar and Mal
