All Adopted in September and October of 2019

Group of fuzzy kittens ready to pounce into your heart!

The Middletown Springs Orphans are wonderful girls who are always getting into some adorable mischief of one kind or another. They have been bottle-fed since they were two weeks old. Bottle babies are usually extra bonded to humans, and make very loving companions.

The Middletown Springs Orphans: Left to Right, Phoebe, Lady, Etta and Minnie–August 15, 2019

They’re all CRAZY!! We are working on manners ie: do not climb mommy’s legs anymore. They never stop moving. They are busy saving the world from “Danger Towels,” learning the laws of physics, and generally learning how to cat.

When the towel has been safely kilt.

The girls grew up in a house that rescues dogs, and they get along really well with dogs and other cats.

Playtime! Mid-September 2019

They love to play and nap with foster mom. They have been very lucky because they traveled to work every day and have had lots of exposure to strangers.

No naptime for foster mom! Mid-September, 2019

These little gals had two weeks with mom, but then one night she wandered out to pee, and didn’t come back! Heartbroken, we were called to take on the bottle-feeding. All of them grew up big and strong!

They have been spayed, treated for fleas, ear mites and common parasites. They tested negative for FeLV, FIV and Heartworm, and have been worry-free after getting rid of their fleas! They have received FVRCP#1 and a microchip.
