Fluffy, pink robes for pretty pretty princesses!! 👑
Mama Saskia has been doing amazing since her discharge! She’s still resting up away from her babies, but I’m considering a mama/baby adoptable pair after her milk dries up. She’s super playful and I really want her to have a young, playful cat buddy, but she hasn’t been very welcoming of new cats. It’s possible she’d adjust nicely with super slow intros. We’ll see... 🧚♀️🐱 #faekittens#mamasaskia#spoiledlady

But you never said it would be a horror story😶
For the past few weeks I’ve had mama Saskia and her nuggets with another foster mom in hopes of socializing the kittens with other people and animals since they are a little antisocial with people. Yesterday, I picked up the kittens so I could take them to their spay/neuter appointments early this morning. Saskia was spayed 3 weeks ago.
This morning, the foster let me know that Saskia was acting weird. She had some episodes of vomiting, generalized weakness, muscle tremors, and difficulty walking (swipe to see video). We rushed Saskia to the emergency vet where they suspect some kind of toxic exposure (although there’s really nothing she could have gotten into - no pesticides, no cleaners, no meds, only had one dose of revolution in November).
Currently, she’s admitted for fluids, meds as needed, and testing. The estimate (swipe to see) is about $1000 on the high end and they forgot to include a test to evaluate her calcium levels (because she was nursing).
This really wasn’t something I foresaw happening, as Miss Saskia has been nothing but the picture of health since I got her! Right now I’m focusing on getting her well - whatever it takes! 🧚♀️🐱 #faekittens#mamasaskia#onlygoodvibes

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed. 😔
I was FLOODED with applications for the baby jerks (siamese mix kittens). SO. MANY. APPLICATIONS. An overwhelming number. Many applicants didn’t respond when I replied that they were pending adoption, even though I talked about all of the other amazing babies I have who arguably have much more lovey and cuddly personalities than the very pretty, but jerky siamese nuggets.
I aim to make strong personality matches between furever families and new nuggets. When a cat can live to be 20+ years old, personality goes a long way to ensure a happy life for everyone! I understand that people have preferences in fur color and I do try to accommodate that as much as possible, but I would challenge you to remove looks from the equation and give the ones who are commonly overlooked (black cats and kittens, older cats and kittens, etc.) a shot! I can personally attest to the fact that black cats have been some of the MOST loving cats I’ve fostered!
Take Butter for example! This boy is a goof! He purrs like a lawnmower with his mouth open (and sometimes gets a dry throat so he coughs after purring hard 🤷♀️) and he’s very bossy about his love! He’s not afraid to get up in your face and demand scratchies and love! He’s the most chill dude and has welcomed new cats and kittens into the foster room like a pro (no hissing or growling from this man)! He is an amazing companion and would make a special family very happy.
If you live along the east coast, I’ll be making some very special kitten deliveries up to RI, MA, and NYC soon and I’d be happy to include Mr. Butter man or any of my other adoptable babies on our journey!
