laturner: (OMGWTF?)
On Friday I was at the SPCA working on computers when some kittens were dropped off. Apparently a homeowner had a male cat and her tenants had a female cat. When they left they left the kittens with the landlord, taking their female cat with them. The kittens are three weeks old. Honestly, who does that?

I helped the kennel attendant on duty feed the babies, although they seemed less than interested in the slurry of wet food. They were all meowing in the way that kittens do when they’re just wondering what is going on. They were scared and wanted their mom back, I’d imagine. Poor babies. Anyway, the kennel attendant said something about fostering them herself, and so I went on my merry way.

Apparently that didn’t work out because yesterday while we were away we got a message asking us if we were interested in fostering the kittens. We thought about it for a few minutes... I mean, we were looking for a break... but hey, we had two weekends off, right? So today we went in and got the babies.

There are four of them, and I will introduce them over the next few days. One is a boy who is polydactyl, with six toes on his front paws and five on his back. We’ve named him Quintcy (emphasis on the Quint for the five back toes). :)

When we picked them up they were absolutely covered in soft food. They were eating a bit of it, but mostly they were walking through it and getting it all over themselves. The first order of business when we got them all home was a warm bath. They purred, partly because it was warm and partly because they were getting attention, I’m sure.

Pictures and more under the cut! )
