My friend Barbara fosters sick kittens that the shelter would otherwise put down, and has been doing so for years. She bottle-feeds these tiny little kittens, and with her expert care, nurses them through some serious diseases so that they are healthy and adoptable. After helping 183 kittens, she finally fell for one and added him to her brood.
The apricot kitty, Duck, will be staying with Barbara and Michael, but the black kitty, Lamb, who is a sweetie, will be available for adoption soon in the Denver area. I can attest that she is an absolute darling, so if you are in the market for a new little someone to love, let me know. Barbara tells me that there is a stigma against black cats, and that once they are full grown, they rarely get adopted. It's hard to believe old superstitions get in the way of giving perfectly good cats homes.
Barbara keeps a blog where she chronicles her efforts to care for her foster kittens, and where she shows off her knitting and crochet projects as well.
I try to find beauty in the everyday, primarily through my photography, which I share here. I also try to keep my brain thinking creatively every day, even if the rest of me is not in the mood, so the posts here are as much for me as they are for you.
