Friends of Felines' Rescue Center is a non-profit, cage free, no-kill feline care facility. Our goal is to adopt our kittens & cats into permanent loving indoor homes and to reduce homelessness, abuse, and euthanasia due to animal overpopulation. We operate solely on the kindness of private donations, and receive no local or federal government funding.
We took in 8 more kittens this weekend. Three are from a litter whose mama was killed on the road. They are identical triplets, all brown/black tigers with the sweetest eyes. One however had an injury to his tail, so it's only a half-tail, but it's fine. Their names are Winken, Blinken & Nod. Nod will be the little fella with the short tail. They are about 4 weeks old and can only eat a tiny bit by themselves, but we are supplementing them with 4 feedings a day. They have good lungs and they sure know how to meow LOUD when they want food or TLC. The other litter is a gorgeous bunch of kittens. There are 5 of them, 4 are long hair, 1 is medium hair. Various colors, all cute, fat tummies and so very friendly. They are about 6 weeks old and eat just fine on their own. They are for the time being staying in Patience's Pen. We have heard back from several of the families who recently adopted adults. Peterson, Novak, Sylvio & Mvula are all doing great & appear to have settled into their new homes just fine. That's what it's all about; getting them wonderful, loving, indoor homes.
If it doesn't rain today, I believe the contractor plans on coming to get things started. The big tree trunk will be ground out, and the stones and dirt removed to start setting the way for the cement floor. So...it's becoming a reality! I'm still in awe of all of this! We will keep you all posted as the construction progresses.
Tinkerbell was just 3 days old when she arrived with her mama and sibling Tinker. Her birthday is 3/12/11. She's a beautiful black kitten, her fur just shines. One thing that's always noted about Tinkerbell is her purr. Even just looking at Tinkerbell produces a purr! She's a wonderful, super friendly kitten. She just loves to be held and given kisses. She loves to climb in the kitty cubes and pounce out at the other kittens. Those furry balls are a constant source of fun for her--she never tires of playing with them. Tinkerbell is an exceptionally bighearted little girl.
