Tuesday Haikusday: Foster Kittens

You guys.

I don’t even know what else to say, so I’ll let my feelings come out in haiku. Eh hem…

She did it again.

Words cannot express to you

How kittens bug me.

.

They’re all grey this time.

Except the one that I call

Mustache. She’s part white.

.

Spinning, playing, smells.

These things all come from kittens.

Toy mice everywhere.

.

There you have it. You might as well also see them. Go ahead. Look:

This is Scotty Sorbet, aka Mustache. Note the mustache and plump body type.

This is Louie He arrived extremely malnourished and is now on his way to plumping up like mustache.

This is Martha. He's months older than the other two and has a great head of hair.

Have you ever fostered? It’s quite an amazing experience (or so MomFOD constantly tells people). In fact, MomFOD had a little meeting last night with some rescue workers and they were saying how that would be the BEST THING you could do during kitten season. All you need is a spare room – a bathroom, bedroom, basement space – anything will do, as long as it’s safe and warm. A few weeks of your care and time would mean the world to a few little faces like you see above.

Here are some articles I wrote earlier this year:

Fostering. Is it for you?

Kitten Season: A Serious Need for Fosters

Please do consider fostering if you haven’t – it’s a life-changing experience.

Love,

Crepes.

  1. Fostering is wonderful. Mom did it and she said that the hardest part was letting go…but right now we are “full up at the inn” and there are no nooks or crannies to stash more cats! In honor of Teddy, she wrote this:

    What a ball of fur
    ever so sweet and joyful
    So much energy

    Up the drapes he goes
    Sliding on the counter, too.
    Crash! There goes a dish

    He lays down to sleep
    Tomorrow will come quickly
    Racing in his dreams

  2. Hi Crepes..they look like BIG trouble..sleep with one eye open in case they try to write on you or give you a shaving. Fuzzmother..I love your Haiku Luv Pixie xxooxx

Stumps up? Stumps down? What are your thoughts?
