Kitty #12 has a good story. There was a mom cat with 2 kittens I had been eyeing. I really wanted to catch the kittens while they were young enough to be socialized and adopted out. I tried really hard to get the kittens and/or the mom. This particular mom is way too smart for conventional trapping. She doesn't even get within 20 feet of the trap. Anyway, after a few attempts, I was able to trap this little guy!
This kitten used to hang out with his sibling and their mom. Their mom was pretty protective of them so I was even lucky to get one of them. Here's a pic of the three of them together:
The reason this is a good story is because my friend Sarah ended up adopting this guy! I got a voucher from Purrfect Cat Rescue to neuter the cat for $20. After I got him neutered, I started him on his vaccinations and got him an FIV/FeLV test, which he was negative :) After my husband and I kept him for a few weeks, I took him to his new home to be with his new family. Here's a little slideshow of the pics of Rajah. I also have some videos of him I'll upload soon :) Enjoy!!

So I'm still way behind on blogging about these cats, but I remember this one pretty well. You know those female cats, they're always so hard to catch so I feel really good when I get one. This little girl already had 2 kittens and she was taking good care of them. She was always sure to give me a "hiss!!" when I'd get anywhere near her and her kitties. Well, somehow I caught her after a few tries. Here she is, yet ANOTHER black kitty!!:
I caught her first and had to go back the next day to try to get her two kittens, which I knew were old enough to eat crunchy food so I wasn't worried about them being away from mom cat. It ended up taking me a couple days to get the two kittens, but I got them! Here they are:
A cute little black kitty and a cute siamese mix kitty. I knew I was going to be catching kittens so I bought a kids pack-n-play to keep them in. I only kept these guys a couple days and then I took them to the local Humane Society to go to a foster home. They went to a foster home and then they were both adopted out. I frequently called to check up on them :)
Below is a pic of where these kitties were living. You can see the mom cat and to the left of her in the pic is the little siamese kitty.
I'm glad that these guys have been adopted and are now in cozy homes! I still feed the mom and see her around of course.
These little ones are technically my first foster kittens, though I only kept them for a couple days. Don't worry....there are more to come!
