meet the new kitties: lolly, rascal & bernie

The Animal Rescue League is completely full, so I'm fostering some sick kitties for them. They'll be ready for adoption in just a few weeks.

Lolly was brought in as a stray with four kittens. Sadly, all of them died. She is extremely affectionate and loves to be petted. She also loves to play and "talks" to the string when she plays with it. She's awesome!Rascal is a beautiful buff-colored kitten (not sure of sex but likely male) with blue eyes. He is full of piss and vinegar! He runs around playing like a nut and gives funny kitten growls at the other cats and even his toys. He purrs when you snuggle him and pet him though. Bernie has already taken over my heart! He's an adolescent kitten, maybe 10 to 12 weeks, extremely skinny and in his very cute awkward stage--all legs, tail, and ears! He's a playful kitten, but he's also a loverboy. As soon as I come into his room, he jumps up on my lap, puts his paws on my shoulder, and give me hugs and kisses. I am in love.

Keeya is a beautiful gray and white girl. She's also very affectionate and extremely gentle. She is camera shy, so her photo isn't available yet, but she's a beauty, a total purr machine, and intelligent.

If you've thought about getting a pet, please consider adopting, especially now when the shelters are full of cats and kittens. These four are all a delight, but there are many more wonderful cats and dogs that need homes.
