In May of 2005, we decided we should try fostering kittens, to ease the pain of the loss of one of our cats. We lost Pepper on a Saturday, and 3 days later, we got a call that there was a litter of 6 orange tabbies that needed a foster home. That was when it all began. The title may make you scratch your head, but I was always amazed at the amount of noise these tiny little kittens can make when they are playing. From the living room, it does indeed sound like we have elephants upstairs.

Pancito has been doing a fine job of making himself at home. He and Bentley play together well, and after a couple of "encounters" with Ripley, he pretty much ignores the cats.
Speaking of cats, we did get a request from the shelter to see if we could take 3 bottle babies last week. I had to turn them down. I have my hands full with a new puppy, and I couldn't devote enough time to bottle babies. I am working outside the house half days, (8-1, with 30 minute drive times both ways) so I could not do a mid morning feeding. I am hoping the next call will be weaned kittens, so I can take them, and I hope Pancito is a little older when I get that call!
In this photo, Buck is checking out the collars and leashes we got to send to Mexico. Believe it or not, www.dollartree.com has them for $1 each! This is a variety of sizes, and they really look pretty sturdy for $1. My friend Evi, who got me into this whole new puppy thing ;) is going down in a month or so, and will be taking any donations anyone wants to make. They have so little down there, and can use anything, even used items that are in decent shape.
