I went by the adoption day yesterday and got an update on 2 of the bottle babies. Skippy has been in his new home for about a month and is much loved by the kids who love to carry him around. They say he's like a Ragdoll (breed of cat) and just goes limp when he's held. His name is now Sam. Sox, the little girl, is doing great with her new home as well, her name is now Mia.

Awww. That is great that they are being loved and held. I am a dog lover myself. I have tried to have cats before but it didn't work out too well, so my mom has them now. I am glad to hear they are doing well though.

That is great. I think all pets need a good home, well most of them. Some are very mean from day one. I treat my dog like a child. He is so spoiled. I think if you own a pet, you should love them like that and take care of them like you do yourself.

I'm so glad that these kittens have found good homes. Its like giving up a child when you've done all the work to getting them grown enough to leave their "moms," in this case, me.

That is great!!! good homes for the cats...Oh him going limp sounds so cute..My daughter loved cats so much when she was little,she always had her cat..She played with her cat and dressed that cat and the cat just loved it..To this day my daughter still loves cats,she has two daughters and they are cat lovers too.I get so amazed at my daughter she just picks her cat up and gives it a big kiss right at his mouth,and the cat loves it...

Oliver, getting upside down - He was trying to turn over here I wasn't doing it
On the mouth... I don't do that... But, cats will do whatever if they learn early enough. Oliver will climb in our arms and then struggle until he's laying upside down because we used to pick him up and tuck him in our arms like a human baby. We didn't FEED him that way, its not the kitten way, but we'd hold him and love on him that way.

Gosh, I don't know who scratched my arm, that time. Probably Oliver, he wasn't/isn't the most careful with his nails, but I also scab even when the skin is barely broken.

The kittens/cats I've adopted thru Cats Angels are checked up on a few times before becalled finished. "D", the lady in charge, likes to make sure everyone is happy. I've also been able to keep in touch with 2 of Rygel's sibs because I know where the owners work (one at the petco.) I've also been able to stay in touch with Gizmo's sibs and mom, since friend's all adopted them.

So very happy to hear they both went to loving homes, Elic. After bottle-feeding Lightning from day one, I would love to find another day-old kitten to bottle-feed again. The joy I received from taking care of my lil man when he was a baby was very much worth the huge pain in my wallet later in life. I honestly don't think he knew he was a cat. Growing up around dogs till he was a year old with no cat companionship...lol

Sox (Mia) and Moo, her new friend - Sox with one of her new "sibs"
I was also glad to get an update on the babies. I loved having them, even if I was getting to my wits end because of the lack of sleep. I'm glad they have all found great new homes!

I guess its kind of letting your children go to school that first day, but of course, they are gone for good. I've put a bottle in one end and wiped the other for so many weeks, I don't miss doing it, but I do miss the babies.
