"Hello" from the babies


My name is Peter, and even though my eyes aren't open yet, I can hiss at strangers and I have a LOT to say.


I'm Bunny, and I am very soft, gentle and trusting.  If you pick me up, I feel like a limp, warm beanbag.


Theresa named me Peep, and I am such a smarty-pants, because I am the first kitten in the litter to open her eyes.  (I'm very dark, but if you look real close at this picture, you can see my tiny, dark eyes.)


Jelly Bean is my name, and moving all over the place is my game.  I'm the smallest one, but I'm also the strongest.

Theresa named our mother "Isabelle" after Joan of Arc's mother.  She went to the doctor this morning for bugs in her ears -- Miss Theresa took all of us to the doctor, so we wouldn't have to be separated from mom for too long.  The nice Doctor Kristen said mom only weighs 6 pounds and 7 ounces and is probably only seven months old herself.  But she's very gentle and loving to us, and Doc Kristen even called us "plump."  We'll check in again when we're bigger.

Oh my goodness. They are just so adorable. I love kittens at that age(love them at any age really) but tiny kittens just steal your heart in an instant. Sad that their mum is so young. Thank you for sharing these babies with us & thank you so much for looking after them & for all you do for these delightful kitties, and thank you for all the love you give them

OMG...I have never seen kittens so small. I think you and your family are amazing to foster kittens and cats like you do. There certainly is a place for you in heaven. Your an angel.
Those kittens are just adorable. I don't know how you let them go, I would want to keep them all.
Bless you, Lynn

God will bless you for what you do, caring for His gentle creatures and making the world a more beautiful place through your talents.

We took in a rescue kitty several years ago, and because of Elvis' special needs (he was paralyzed in the hind quarters and abandoned at the vet's office where my son, now a vet student himself, worked) we can't take on anymore kitties. Although no longer paralyzed, Elvis still requires a great deal of attention and care. He's also a very expensive little blessing, but one we are thankful for every single day.

Thank you on behalf of my rescue kitty, Elvis, and on behalf of my son and all the caring vets for what you do.

Theresa, What a beautiful litter of foster babies and Mom. I, too, do foster care for expectant felines and their litters and am waiting for my spring call to duty with happy anticipation. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! The rewards of fostering are immeasurable. Bless you and yours. Karri

I can't believe how tiny their poor mom was, and so young! Glad they stumbled into your path. What cute little kittens.
