Kittens are a very precarious thing. For the most part, mama takes care of them, but if she is sick she may try to take time for herself and not stay around the kittens as much as she would otherwise. Unfortunately for Claire (and us), she lost 4 out of her 6 kittens over a stretch of a few weeks. Two of them made it through with flying colors and are the cutest, most adorable fosters we've ever had!
I took pictures of Dora (the girl) and Huck (the boy) today for the shelter. Claire was hiding under the bed and was in NO way, shape, or form coming out to be photographed! After I can get a snap of mama, I'll post it. She is beautiful.
