Orphaned kittens found, fostered, looking for permanent homes

Have you been considering getting a kitten or two?  Well, we’re going to shamelessly tempt you with cuteness.  A Polish Hill resident found a large litter of kittens in a rubbish pile behind the building where she works.  She and her co-workers kept an eye on the kittens for a day, but the mother never returned.  The nine kittens are now being fostered by Elizabeth Bashur, of Little House, Big Art.  The kittens are about three weeks old — too young to be separated — and must be fed by hand every three hours.  They’ll be ready to adopt in about five weeks.

In the meantime, Elizabeth is going to be short on sleep  – those 3 am feedings are tough.  She is hoping to find homes for the kittens rather than surrender them to a shelter.   If you’d like to visit the kittens, perhaps help with feeding, cleaning, or just holding and petting them, stop in at Little House Big Art.  The hours are:

Mondays 2:00 – 6:00
Tuesdays 10:00 – 8:00
Wednesdays 10:00 – 6:00
Thursdays 2:00 – 6:00
Fridays 10:00 – 8:00
Saturdays 10:00 – 6:00

And don’t blame us if you decide to take home a couple.  After all, if you have one cat, you might as well have two — they can keep each other company, and it really isn’t that much more trouble.  Really.

  1. I’d love to post these little ones on my site tomorrow! Each Monday I feature cats and kittens who were rescued by individuals or who are fostered or up for adoption by individuals, just to give them a little more help with finding homes.

    But nine kittens?! That’s a big job for one person. I’ll give her a call tomorrow and find out a little more plus give her some information on low-cost vet services and spay and neuter for rescues. Thanks for posting!
