Mojo showing off his ferocious roar...even with only three fangs and a few small teeth, he's was a mighty mancat!
Note: Mojo had most of his teeth removed due to infection and a large abcess that popped up on his chin. He did great without them and could still eat his dry food just fine.

Lily can be a wild woman...she loves to play with ribbons and chase balls around the floor.
There's another cat in the group, named Reese. She's solid black, long haired as well, but she is extremely shy, so I didn't go after her with the camera :)

Our friend brought her over to the house in a plastic tub, along with her heat lamps and food. Sasha seemed unhappy in the plastic bin, because it was smaller than what she was used to, so Auntie and I started looking for something better. We found an inflatable kids pool and put her in there. She loved it!
I use this time to say to people looking for a pet of anykind, exotic or not, to make sure you research and know what you are getting into....their life is in your hands!
Thanks and I hope you all enjoyed meeting Sasha...she's a wild woman for sure.

The rules for this award are simple: we are to list 7 things about us then offer the award to 7 beautiful bloggers. Here's our list:
- Devon was named by his foster mom, but the name totally fits him.
- Tanner was the first kitten I ever bottle fed.
- Smokey came to live with me when he was 7 weeks old. I called an advertisement in a newspaper about him.
- Smokey loves to share my pillow at night (take over is more like it)
- Tanner likes to sit on my lap when I am in the bathroom (TMI I'm sure)
- Devon loves to play with water from a faucet, but not from their fountain.
- All the boys like to ride around the neighborhood in their stroller, just not at the same time :)
Well now to pass this along to 7 bloggers...choosing 7 is hard because you are all beautiful, but here goes...
- The Adventures of Maxdog in South Africa
- Rusty's World
- Fat Cat Bean
- Marley, Reggie and Me

Also, I wanted to point out a new banner on the right...it's about helping inner city kids visit the country for a time during the summer to get some fresh air and exposure to various rural activites. Growing up in the country, I remember all the fun we had just playing in the pasture, walking through the woods and exploring the world around us.

Smokey and Tanner enjoying the fresh air.
These pictures are all older, as the bad mom forgot to have the batteries charged in the camera! Maybe next weekend, I'll be ready :)

- Pass this along to 5 other blogs...
We recieved a call from a local shelter that a mom cat had given birth overnight. She was feral and had already (probably by accident) dropped one kitten in the water bowl and she drowned. They wanted to pull the remaining kittens off so they would be safer. There are three kittens. Lunar, the white one (affectionately known as the Fat Whitey because she was at least twice the size of her sisters), Lexie, the one with her head on the white one, and Leah (who started off as Liam until we realized he was a girl). Lexie and Leah were adopted together. Lunar was adopted by our good friend, and turned out to not be white, her points came in later.
Well, that's our flash back to fostering post... We are passing the 'Tagged' portion of the post to anyone who wants to play along...Happy Friday everyone!

I'm thankful for a mom who remembers that I like to be covered with warm towels and clothes fresh from the dryer. I'm thankful for a sunny window and a high perch.

Devon walking in the yard when we lived at the townhouse with his scarf. He would walk all over the neighborhood, and loved the attention he would get.

Velcro was one of the favorites...and good thing too because he was with us for over a year! We got him and his brother, Xavier (we just called him brother) as tiny kittens. We bottle raised them and they were nice easy boys. They were extremely bonded with one another, so we insisted they be adopted together. I believe that is why it took so long...two black male cats that needed to go together. Not everyone likes a black cat, and not everyone wants two of them! Their perfect family came around though and just loved the boys...
The photo above is Velcro, nursing on some fingers. He loved to nurse and suckle, especially on hands. He was a sweet boy.
Well, those are some favorite fosters. If you ever get the opportunity to foster it is well worth it, and so rewarding to know you helped place an animal in a loving home. Keep up the good work all of you who still foster today.

When we had to move into the 'dungeon' for a few months while our house finished, all the boys clung to one another for security and familiarity. Smokey is on the right in this picture.
Do you have cats that choose to be alone, but will tolerate sharing? Or do all of your cats seek out a buddy to snuggle with?
