They have arrived! Yesterday morning, Ross and I drove up to Best Friends in Los Angeles to pick up some new foster kittens. We ended up with the “Y” litter – all with Y names – Yonkerz, Yammerz, Yupperz, Yapperz. A little silly, so we decided to give them nicknames while they’re here.

Blog the Change for Animals (#BtC4A) is a quarterly opportunity for bloggers to post about an animal-related cause that is near and dear to that blogger’s heart.

Hello, fellow feline lovers! Just dropping in today to introduce you to our current foster cat, Carington. This 10-year-old, 18-pound gentleman is quite shy and reserved (yes, I said 18 pounds!). But he is the biggest sweetheart I’ve ever met (yes, pun intended).
I’ve wanted to foster cats for a while now, and Ross and I finally started fostering on Sunday. I will write more about the process of how we got started later, but I wanted to quickly introduce you to the two-year-old Juno. She’s our first foster cat. And she’s a beauty!
