Little Mau was found wondering on the streets on a Saturday when Tracy was out for a walk. She was very shy and timid, but somehow she trusted this complete stranger and let her take her away from the unpredictable world of outdoors. It was perhaps the first time she experienced home.
Two little babies were the reason how Tracy became a foster parent for a local rescue group. “A few years ago, as I was reading the news, I found a feral cat rescue group website over the internet and saw a beautiful kitten there. I called right away for the kitten and was notified that she had been adopted. A month later, I got a call from them, asking if I would be interested in fostering two little kittens whose eyes were not even open. I had no experience caring for a kitten that small, but they were really short of hands, so I did not hesitate and took them right in,” said Tracy on her blog.
Ingot (or Yuan Bao) was a rescue cat found by a local shelter in Hong Kong. He was brought in with a problem eye and they had to have it removed in order to save the little one. However, the change never stopped him from being the most positive and loving kitty his new mom has ever seen.
Three beautiful ginger babies were brought to the shelter. Within a few hours, they arrived in their foster home where they were greeted by not just one, but many cat residents who started taking care of them in rotation. The kittens were around 20 days old, still bottle babies.
Happy has been a surrogate cat father to many rescue kittens. One of them is called Sweet who became his closest friend :).
An orphaned kitten was rescued by a friend of Tracy. “It was July 2006 when we met. I was holding a little fuzzy tabby in my hand and all of a sudden, she bit my finger a little bit,” said Tracy. Right then she realized that this feisty little bottle baby had chosen her to come home with.
After Tracy sent away her last foster to a new home, very soon the shelter called again. There were two brother and sister kittens that needed some fattening up and lots of TLC. They were a bit shy when they just arrived, but that shell quickly cracked open and they started venturing around the house, greeting other cat residents, and feeling much more at home.
While Tracy was busy taking care of many rescue cats found through their Trap-Neuter-Return program in Hong Kong, two more little orphaned kittens found their way to her door. They were named Gold Bar and Gold Brick, little ginger babies from two different litters.
