From Kitten to Cat, Isis the Tortie

Isis was born at her foster home to a stray cat mama. She is the only tortie in the litter. Isis has transformed from a teeny squirmy kitten to a fluffy beautiful cat. Her journey has shown us how precious life is and that every cat deserves a second chance.

    what a tiny little thing. I've never experienced the tiny newborn kittens, but it's a dream

      Caroline There is nothing quite as wonderful as watching a litter of kittens being born… I have multiple cats myself and I’ve helped deliver two litters of kittens with my own. Males are now fixed thankfully, Each a litter of 5. It is the most amazing thing to experience that you can ever get to see…. once you go thru it and see it first hand you never forget it. It is totally imprinted in your brain and heart forever. Sometime I will have to tell you about them in detail.
