Catherine (Kate) a beautiful black cat showed up in someone’s yard one day and started making herself at home. The owner of the family brought her to the Challenger’s House in Toney, Alabama. When she was going through physical check up at the vet’s, they discovered that Kate didn’t come to the yard alone. She was pregnant. “She showed up at the house of a woman and her son; …Kate hovered around their back yard for a while before she decided to make herself at home,” said Robyn Anderson, the foster mom.

They took Kate with a big belly to Robyn, an experienced fosterer. In less than a month, Kate gave birth to five very fuzzy kittens (two tuxies, two tabbies, and one black).

Kate has been nothing but loving and dedicated to her babies. Her motherly instinct kicked in when she was pregnant. She was looking for a safe place to have her kittens and ended up in the good hands of the Challenger’s House.

Emmy the tabby came to the Challenger’s House with a big belly on February 17, 2012. “She was one of a group of around 40 cats who were abandoned at a house in Limestone County, Alabama. Forgotten Felines spearheaded the rescue of these cats, and Emmy became a Challenger’s House cat,” said Robyn A. on her blog.

Emmy was very shy and scared when she just arrived, but the soon to be cat mama was making tremendous progress each day. On March 1st, her belly popped and four adorable fuzzy little ones made their way into the world with a lot of squeaks and tons of love.

Now they have doubled their size, mama cat can only nurse 4 at a time

It’s been 6 1/2 weeks since Maggie the rescue mama cat gave birth to her six tabbies. All of them have doubled their size since then. Even though they have switched to eating solid, you can still find them nursing sometimes. It’s the sweetest thing that Robyn their foster mom finds hard to resist.

In just a few more weeks, these guys will be up for adoption. Maggie and her kittens are fostered by Challenger’s House in Toney, Alabama.

Maddy was two and half weeks old when she arrived in her foster home. The little one has a face that would immediately give you sugar shock. She loved to cuddle with Robyn, her foster mom and fall asleep while she was holding her.

The little munchkin has grown into

Beulah the runt

Beulah is the runt of a litter of seven. She is much smaller than her siblings. What she lacks in size, she makes it up in affection and playfulness.

Beulah and her silbings came to Challenger’s House on March 21, 2009. “They’d been born to a stray mother (who evaded capture) and though they were almost 7 weeks old when they came to us, they were pretty small. The boys all weighed in at right around a pound. Tiny little Beulah was only 8.5 ounces, but a scrappy little fighter,” says Robyn.
