And then there was one

Hello everyone.  So.  This is Lucky.  He's the last of our "spare" cats.  For those of you joining us for the first time, or for the first time in a long time, we had a spare gaggle, herd, flock, whatever of cats at our house this summer.  It started with Daisy, a lovely calico momma who decided to have her kittens under our chimney the day before Father's Day.
She had 5; 4 of them survived.  We brought her into the house and gave her a nice warm place to raise her babies. (actually, more like cool!  It was really, really hot this summer)
Then about the time Daisy's babies were weaning themselves someone dumped a bunch of kittens in a parking lot.  It was 102 degrees that day and they were left in a wire crate with no shade or water.  Daisy graciously agreed to help me take care of them.
She's really a good cat.  I hope her new family gets her spayed.  But as far as mommas go, she a good one.  A local rescue, Rico's Rescue, has agreed to help me find homes for them.  I'm fostering, but the rescue has them listed on petfinder.com and they are paying for the vetting.   Two of them have been adopted by people I know.  A third, Laffy Taffy, was found on petfinder.  Lucky is the last one.

We are participating in the pet blog hop today!  Go here if you want to join in!

Hi Barb! Thanks for coming by my blog and wishing my Nate a happy birthday, I'm so glad to have found your site!

What adorable kitties! I love that Daisy helped with the orphan kittens, how precious. I hope Lucky will find his new home soon, he's a real cutie.

I'm so glad to meet Sassy, Ginger, and Chili, love their pictures! I'm looking forward to following your blog. :)

What great timing to allow momma to help the newer babies!

What a sweetheart Daisy is and how kind you are to help out and foster these kittens. It is so hard to understand why people can be so irresponsible. It's just as easy to "dump" kittens as it is to pick up the phone and ask a rescue organization for help... Bless you for what you do.

I'm so happy you stopped by Something Wagging This Way Comes. It gave me a chance to learn about all these great cats and kitties finding new homes. That's the kind of thing I love to see first thing in the morning.

Thanks for all the work you and your family put into fostering these fuzzy bundles of joy.

I've been in awe learning about the plight and subsequent rescue and development of all these little kitties. You've had some luck (and hard work) this summer! I hope little Lucky finds a wonderful new home soon. He is such a pretty boy. :)
