Meet Colin the runt of his litter orphaned when they were three days old. He is much smaller than his age, but what he lacks in size, he makes up with his personality!

“He is the sweetest little guy,” said Amy Bender, fosterer of Central Oklahoma Humane Society and pet mom of Sauerkraut the cat.

“Colin and his three siblings came to us as foster kittens through Central Oklahoma Humane Society. Their mother rejected them at three days old, so we have been bottle raising them.

Colin is the ‘runt’ of the group, and my personal favorite (shhhh, don’t tell the other kittens). He’s about five weeks old, but developmentally he’s closer to three and a half weeks. I’m hoping he’ll ‘catch up’ once he’s weaned, but even if he doesn’t, he’s still special.”

Little Colin and his siblings will be available for adoption, once they are big enough.

“Colin loves snuggling and play fighting with his sister Enya, though most of the time he bites off way more than he can chew!”

When Cate the cat mama is swamped by her hungry kittens, there’s no chance for an escape.

Cate’s foster dad writes: “Our former VOKRA foster cat Cate’s kittens going crazy at meal time, what a fun and lovable crew they all were!

Cate was adopted into a fabulous forever home and her kittens were adopted out in pairs to fabulous homes too.”

WATCH VIDEO: Being a mama is hard work!

Feeding time has always been busy for Cate since the kittens were babies.

This is why fostering kitties is so much fun.

They bring so much cuteness into the house!

“We fostered these 5 adorable kittens and their rescued mum Nornie for VOKRA – The Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Assoc. in the summer of 2014 and all of them were adopted into fabulous forever homes,” DrNworb’s KitsCats writes.

Meet Lucy and her seven very hungry kittens.

She was looking for shelter during an ice storm when she was pregnant.

Robyn Anderson of Love and Hisses writes: “Lucy (est’d date of birth 3/19/12) came to us on March 19, 2015. She’d shown up almost two weeks previously at someone’s house during an ice storm looking for shelter. When it became clear that she was planning to stick around AND that she was pregnant, they called Challenger’s House for help.

When she came to us, we expected her to give birth at any moment. Almost TWO WEEKS later, she finally did, on April 1, 2015.”

Lucy’s belly on March 20th (left) and April 1st. “Lucy is a small cat and her belly was really large, so we expected she’d have a largish litter.”

“In the space of three hours, she gave birth to SEVEN kittens. We weren’t expecting quite that many!”

“Lucy is a wonderful and attentive mother, and her kittens more than doubled their weight in their first week of life.”

“There are SO MANY of them, and all they wanna do is EAT.”

I think it would be safe to say that these are not going to be tiny kittens.”

These two kitties may be tiny but they surely are loud talkers!

“Foster kittens Arthur and Morgana playing, cuddling and generally being adorable. Yes, they’re always that loud!” the foster mom wrote.

“This pair of kittens came to us as strays, roughly 5 weeks old. Absolutely no harm came to them whatsoever; they meowed like that all the time… They were covered in mud and feces, still too small to clean themselves properly, and didn’t have a mother to take care of them,” she wrote.

“They’ve since grown up healthy and happy, and were adopted together to a loving family.”
