Meet Our Fosters – Lucy & Nadia

As I’ve mentioned several times here & there on my blog, Lorenzo & I regularly rescue & foster animals. A lot of our fostering, especially at this time of the year, are orphaned kittens. I don’t know anyone (in their right mind) who doesn’t find kittens absolutely freaking adorable. So I’ve decided to start sharing more stories & photos about my temporary roommates 🙂

MEET LUCY:

The very first thing I thought when I saw Lucy was “Oh my god, she looks sooo much like our former foster Heidi”. Heidi’s runner up name choice was Lucy, & so it was passed on to this little girl. When we first brought Lucy home she was absolutely terrified. She ran straight under the dresser & wouldn’t come out for a while. Once she knew the place was safe & that we weren’t “the enemy”, she became a total cuddle-buffkin.

Aside from cuddling, Lucy also very much enjoys; eating, lol, quick to eat her own food & then bam straight over to attempt to eat all of her sisters food too, climbing & sitting on my shoulder, hey I hear it’s pretty interesting up there, playing with the stick (handle) to all of the cat string toys, attacking stuffed animals four times her size, “burying” her food over & over again, & watching her crazy ass sister act, well crazy, haha.

Lucy is a total sweetheart. She has become more & more affectionate & loving with every passing day. She loves people & she loves her sissy. She was always way behind her sister in her daily weigh-ins, then all of the sudden she started catching up, & on their last day here they weighed the exact same amount. She used every gram of that weight to attack her poor easily distracted sister too.

MEET NADIA:

Nadia’s name came from the fact that I have always loved the name & she just looked like a Nadia to me. I’ve been around A LOT of kittens in my life. I mean literally thousands in the past several years. Most kittens are quite playful & energetic, but none compared to this wild girl! She is ready to play 24/7 & she’s pretty crazy. I couldn’t tire her out. I would always get tired before her, my arms feeling like they were going to both fall off from playing with her so much.

Playing, more specifically attacking anything & everything (her sis, my foot, my adult cats from under the door, a moving toy, a stationary object, like a table, her food, seriously anything & everything) is definitely Nadia’s number one choice of entertainment. Some other things she loves include; starring at the moving ceiling fan, jumping up & down from the bed, climbing & reigning as queen on top of their travel carrier, sleeping on my legs, exploring the bathroom tub, etc.

Nadia is definitely less affectionate than her sister, Lucy, but she is still a total sweetie, duh. She’s hysterical too. I laughed at something new every day with her. She’s brave, almost fearless it seems. In fact she’s the only cat out of literally 30 (I counted) that isn’t scarred & in fact actually really likes this one toy that my sister gave me because her cat was terrified of it, lol. She loves people, her sis, other cats, & dogs, but she clearly likes her “alone time” too. She’s as interesting as she is unique looking, that’s for sure!

Both Lucy & Nadia, like every foster we’ve ever fostered, totally stole our hearts. It was, of course hard to say good-bye to them. But they will each be happy in a new loving forever home & we now have room to foster [help save the lives of] more babes. In fact we picked up a new litter of four six-wk old  kittens just yesterday 🙂

    Kara, you really touched my heart with this story!
    We got our cat from the shelter. She was 2 y.o when she was found on the streets with her babies. When we went to visit in the shelter all the babies were adopted, only she wasn’t because she was an adult cat. We took her in and she has been the greatest (we have her for almost 4 years). Really can’t imagine our lives without her. And for now I’m dreaming of moving to a bigger place so we can take in more cats from the shelter! It breaks my heart that we can’t take them all, but we’ll do as much as we can.
    Your story is really inspirational! And YES

    DON’T BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE.

    Keep up this mazing work!

      I love that story Catia!
      I love that you adopted an adult cat! I love my foster kittens, but I only adopt animals too (exception = special needs animals).
      I hope you can take in more one day soon 🙂

    They are so sweet! I don’t know how you foster, though, lady- I would get SO attached (too attached!) and end up keeping every single one!

      I’ve cried every time I’ve had to say goodbye to my fosters, BUT I foster because without fosters, animals are killed (euthanized because there’s no space) & death is certainly A LOT more upsetting than having to say goodbye! I have been able to keep in touch with most of my adopters & get updates w photos now & then. I even get to visit a few here & there 🙂

    Oh my goodness, they’re SO CUTE! I had a cat named Lucy (who left me because she fell in love with my dad when I temporarily moved home haha), and she was the BEST.
    I love that you guys foster animals! This is something I’d like to do in the future too, but I think I’d try to keep them all!

      Awe, great name, heh 🙂 It’s definitely tempting to keep them all, but then there would be no space for new ones, & fostering saves lives. You could of course keep the first several. I have 6 forever cats, plus 3 dogs, & then however many fosters I have (right now I have 4) lol.

    Omg, how precious are thees babies!!!? Haha, I couldn’t help but laugh at Lucy’s little grin, how adorable! That’s awesome that you’ve adopted, I believe animals know when they’ve been rescued. My mom rescued one that I convinced her to because I couldn’t at the time and she’s like her watch dog, seriously so protective of her. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    Omg yes! I have been waiting for the day you post about your foster kittens. Lucy and Nadia are adorable! Sign me up for fostering kittens of my own, I would love to take care of them, if only Dan weren’t so allergic. I appreciate that you’ve taken care of these kittens until they find the right homes. It’s such a nice thing to do! You are so kind!

      Awe that sucks Dan is allergic. Maybe he’ll grow out of it? lol. Seriously though. Lorenzo was super allergic at first & when we adopted our first cat he had to take Benadryl on the regular. Then when we got our 2nd cat, it lessoned. Now we have 6 forever cats, & during kitten season anywhere from 1-6 foster kittens at a time. He’s totally cool now. I guess the more cats, the least allergy, haha, coincidentally, not literally, of course 🙂

    What cuties!! I always find my fur babies at shelters, but I haven’t had the experience of fostering an animal yet. We already have 2 cats so it might be a while, but it’s on my list! It’s awesome that you can provide care and a loving home to those in need! Keep up the great work.
