Hi, My long, lost loves! How is everyone? So I’m still moving around furniture, going to barn sales as well as trying my hand at watercolors and oil painting, raising humans and….saving lives. Cat lives. If you’ve followed me for a while you know that my pets always find a way into my photos and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I started working at local shelters socializing and caring for cats and walking dogs. This Spring I started the foster process after wearing DH down!
It has been such a special experience and one that I will not stop doing for the rest of life. I’m primarily working with Homeward Trails, which is such a special organization. They seek out animals in need all over the county and outside of the US. They will take in as many cats and dogs as possible from shelters that cannot care for them. I’ve even received a request from a coordinator to grab a flashlight and head over to the 7-11 because someone spotted a mama and her babies hiding amongst the trashcans.
Since Spring is kitty season, we took in a mama and her three babies. It has been an unbelievable experience watching Mama nurse her 1 lb babies and care for them and keep them alive. We almost lost Clover to pneumonia early on.
Holly (Girl), Clover (Boy) and Ivy (Boy) are all available for adoption RIGHT NOW.
As a girl that loves God, I know that offering empathy is, well, pretty much everything. I am trying to teach my kids this concept more than anything else. Right now my family is not able to travel to Kenya or build homes in Honduras, but we can offer shelter to the littlest of creatures.
I love this process so much that we also are fostering Lulabelle. A sweet five year old that has been living in and out of homes and is slow to trust. Sweet Lulu. Greta discovered recently that she loves the piano. If we play the piano, she comes running and rubbing. It’s quite amazing. Lulu is also available for adoption.
If you have space in your home and heart for any of these babies, please email me. I pray for the perfect homes for these Loves. firstname.lastname@example.org
Where are you located?

So nice to hear from you again, Christen! What a good person you are to take in these homeless kitties. My daughter has also done this with two pregnant momma cats roaming the street near her house. When the babies were born, one had three and the other four! My daughter’s two young boys quickly became attached to all of them and despite trying to find them all homes, none were adopted and are now part of my daughter’s family! Not the best outcome, in my opinion, but not my decision. I hope yours all find new homes. They are all three gorgeous tiger babies. I hope you’ll let us know how it goes.
