The Angels have arrived

I decided to call these 3 girls the Angels. That being said, I decided to name them Sabrina, Dylan and Alex. I know, I know. I mixed the movie Angels with the old show Angels. I had to. I have already had a Natalie, and I just didn't want a Jill or a Kelly. So sue me!



These girls come from Woodbridge. They were part of a feral colony down there. Started off as 6. 2 died, and one we think was taken somewhere else by one of the neighbors. I believe Mom goes in to be spayed next week. Good! This is her second litter, and she is only 3. (If that!)


I am taking them in tomorrow to get them in the foster program. Decided to wait until the volunteer coordinator got back in town. She knows they are coming, so hopefully I can be in and out after a quick bit of bloodwork, and they won't have to be there long.

All 3 Angels waking up from a nap

They are a little timid, but getting better already. Never have heard a hiss out of them. Dylan is the most playful and friendly so far. She loves to be brushed and purrs when you touch her. They other 2 purr, but they take a little warming up.
I was a little worried about them at first. They were all pretty mellow, and didn't play much. While I was in my office last night I heard them playing with the balls with the bells in them, so I am less worried. They do play when I am in there now too.

All 3 have very fat, round wormy bellies. (probably why they are a little lethargic.) I have already given them 2 treatments of panacure, so hopefully that will take care of the worms. They will get 1 or 3 more doses (I can't remember off the top of my head) and another treatment in a couple of weeks. They don't fight me as much as the last bunch! I have a feeling they will learn to!

This could be the last litter of the season. (Where have I heard that before?)

Jamie I know I've said this before but you are such a saint for doing this. I believe this is "Momma" cats 3rd or 4th litter (so sad) and thanks to you and Deb...these little girls will have a loving home. I can tell you that they already look 10 times better and so very happy not to out in this terrible weather! Your ability to socialize them is amazing and so neat to watch. Thanks for inspiring the rest of us!

I think Sabrina would love to come home with me!

It's so great that babies like these angels have some place to live that is full of love for them. Cheers to you for helping the ones who need it so much.

At our house, "Kelly" was a Man Cat name anyway... but we added Mr. to it when someone asked whether "she" was OK.

Just adorable, Jamie! Can't wait to watch these little ladies thrive in your care!

PS-I'll "third" Kim's comment! ;-)
