The Outlander Clan (named after characters from the books/TV show Outlander) came to us on June 11, 2022. Mama Jocasta had been a neighborhood stray and was turned in to Forgotten Felines of Huntsville. When they received her, they realized that she was a nursing mother, and went back to the neighborhood she came from, where luckily someone was caring for her kittens. They reunited Jocasta’s 5 kittens with her, and added in a 6th kitten, who belonged to another neighborhood cat (possibly Jocasta’s sister), who was just a bit older than the others.
Jocasta and her 5 kittens: Angus, Jamie, Jenny, Lord John Grey, and Marsali. Kitten #6, Lizzie, is the one who is possibly Jocasta’s niece.
Jocasta’s date of birth: 6-1-2020
Angus, Jamie, Jenny, Lord John Grey & Marsali’s date of birth: 4-9-2022
Lizzie’s date of birth: 4-4-2022
While waiting for room to open up in our foster room, Jocasta and her kittens stayed with another foster. She had another 4 kittens who got along great with Jocasta and her kittens (and as a bonus, the 4 add-ins got some mothering from Jocasta), so they came to us as well.
Ian, Fergus and Roger came from a local rural animal control facility. Brianna was left behind by a frightened feral mother (who was possibly in the process of moving her kittens and was scared off.)
Ian, Fergus & Roger’s date of birth: 4-13-22
Brianna’s date of birth: 4-4-2022
All the kittens get along great with each other, and as mentioned Jocasta is very sweet with all of them (though sometimes overwhelmed.)
