Muriel the cat mama is very tied up with all the tiny paws and hungry mouths. This beautiful black rescue just gave birth to a litter of five.
“She’s been such a brave girl. She didn’t meow at all on the car ride to my house and has been such a sweetheart. She’s all black with a little white spot on her chest. She’s very small and I thought maybe she was a ‘teenager’ like Norma was, but apparently she’s six years old! Needless to say, she’s had a lot of experience with the whole mommy thing and definitely knows what she’s doing with the kittens. There are three black and white ones and two gray and white ones,” said Lindsey, their foster mom.
It has been seven weeks since Finn and Dash came to this world. They then opened their eyes to see for the first time and learned to eat solid food and use the litter boxes. The kittens are spoiled and loved by every human and furry kind in the house. Dexter the Ragdoll became their cat-sitter, watching them play, wash them up after meals, and let them nuzzle next to him for extra TLC.
It’s become bittersweet for Lindsey to know that the kittens are getting ready for adoption. “I still don’t know exactly when they’ll all be going back (to the shelter)…. I’m hoping I’ll just be able to keep them until the day they get neutered… and get picked up by their new owners the next day.”

2 weeks later, their eyes opened, ears perked up, stronger and fluffier:
Dexter an one year old fluffy cat has a big heart for little foster kittens. Ever since Finn and Dash came to their foster home, Dexter has taken to them with open arms. He is like the furry dad that the two orphan kittens never had [edit: their cat mama Norma is in the foster home too]. Dexter is teaching the kitties how to be a man-cat.
