Adopted September 30th, 2010
This little cat family has an all too familiar story. Mama Satin, a 10-month old kitten herself, found herself abandoned on the streets and was an easy target for neighbourhood tomcats. It didn't take long until she was pregnant. This resilient little cat quickly learned to hunt and gratefully accepted any food a kind stranger offered her.
When it was time to have her kittens, Satin was smart enough to find a safe enclosed structure under a deck. She had three beautiful kittens and managed to keep them warm, dry and safely out of reach of tomcats. They were discovered by the homeowners when the babies were old enough to follow Satin outside into the sunshine, just as it was getting colder. So, she contacted People for Animals to take the little family and put them into foster care. By this time, Satin was skin and bones from keeping her kittens nourished.
Satin is a beautiful green-eyed, black and white kitten with a sleek and shiny coat. Satin is friendly, calm, gentle and has a regal appearance. She loves to play with cat toys and to look out the window, and she adores being able to sleep with her foster mom. Satin loves attention and purrs her appreciation at all the cuddles and patting she get now. She will be spayed the first week of October.
The ideal home for Satin will be a quiet household, perhaps with respectful older children, with people who will regard Satin as a permanent member of their family and appreciate her gentle soul.
Satin's adorable daughters (2 months) are: Gidget - a blue-eyed, light coloured Siamese-cross with tortie ears, four white paws and a brown stripe down her nose, Tinkerbell - the calico kitten pictured above, and Cricket - a blue-eyed dusty-coloured Siamese-cross with chocolate ears, tail, and paws. Both kitties are just as cute as can be!
The kittens have been de-wormed and will soon receive their first vaccination. All are healthy and well socialized. They love to play with each other and are ready to go to loving permanent homes.
