Default Hyia is learning

To be a foster Mommy. These are her (with a lot of help) foster babies, day 2.

THat is not formula on the white one's face, there is a blonde siamese looking mask, both have it, but one is darker than the other. In good light you can see faint strips on the legs the same color. That will help in the people appeal. They will go back at 4 weeks for shots, and then back again for the final give back so they can receive vet care and microchip before they go up for adoption.

Hyia was having a hard time, and needed a confidence boost.I thought this might be a win win, I could teach her how to care for and bottle feed, there is no issue of them staying, it is in black and white that it is a 6 week commitment, end of story, period. SHe is laughing and singing and being awesome in cleaning up. THere is lots of cleaning up, but they are also already awesome at using the litter box which is where they go right after they eat. So getting them off on the right foot so to speak.
The shelter has received 200 animals last month, they are desperate for fosters, and I have my share of bottle feeding knowledge. So I told my friend Kelly we would take two, because I thought 2 would be easier to give up than one, but I should have known better, we walked out with a littler of 5. THey are a very pertty litter, all kittens are pretty, Hyia has always always always wanted to be with a kitten. She is happy, and positive, and the kittens are purring and playing now, so so far, so good.


Hyia told Kelly she wanted to work at the shelter when she grew up. Kelly told her being a good foster was the best place to start.
