foto friday + foster kittens.

in honor of NikeMom's foto Friday:

J. and Hermione ^^ .

J. and I foster kittens from our local shelter [the same place where we volunteer -- and where we adopted two of our cats]. we've had as few as two and as many as five [!] foster kittens. we get them when they're about 1 month old, and keep them until they are at least 8 weeks old + 2.2 lbs. we also play with them, hold them, get them adjusted to being pets. we do get attached - of course - but once they start climbing the shower curtain [and your pant's leg!] it's not so difficult. I'd estimate we've had about 25 kittens come through our care. <3>
