Vittles

 

The fosters known collectively as The Vittles are basically three 5-kitten litters put together in one big litter. They joined us on October 5, 2020.


Black and white tuxie boy Davy Crockett, white and orange boy Wild Bill Hickok, calico girl Calamity Jane, house panther boy Buffalo Bill, and classic torbie Annie Oakley.

Their date of birth is July 29th. They are Pistol Annie’s kittens – Pistol Annie is currently at Michelle’s house trying to decide whether humans can be trusted (she runs hot and cold on the idea). She and her kittens (and some older kittens and the father) were trapped by Michelle and Gayle, who went to trap 6 and ended up with 11. (!)


Orange tabby boy Funnel Cake, gray and white tuxie girl Tater Tot, house panther boy (orange collar) Onion Ring, house panther boy (yellow collar) Hush Puppy, and house panther girl French Fry (pink collar).

Their date of birth is July 21st. They were born to a scaredy mama (Cotton Candy), who is currently at Michelle’s house. She was living in a trailer park and it took a young lady about a year to befriend her. She finally got her inside just in time for her to give birth to her kittens. Three of them were born with their feet turned around backwards, and the lady knew she needed help. Michelle took them and splinted the kittens’ feet. I have looked at those kittens’ feet and they look perfectly normal now. Also, the kittens in this bunch have very short tails (nubs, really.)


Cream point boy Snowcone, dilute calico girl Candy Apple, house panther girl Pretzel (purple collar), house panther boy Fritter (green collar), and brown tabby girl Eclair.

Snowcone and Candy Apple are brother and sister with a date of birth of July 31st.
Pretzel and Fritter are brother and sister with a date of birth of July 23rd. They were born to a mother who was in rescue – no one knew she was pregnant until she had kittens and she was TERRIFIED of her kittens (poor mama).
And Eclair is an add-in (showed up in someone’s yard in an area where cats are regularly abandoned) with a date of birth of August 11th.

Yes, that is a total of 15.
