First kittens of 2011

There have been no young kittens at the shelter lately, so we weren't expecting fosters til spring.  Imagine our surprise and delight when Rebecca at PAWS called us to pick up 6 little ones!  We were a bit nervous as we'd never fostered a whole litter before, but also very excited.  These guys are around 7 weeks old, a little older than our usual bottle feeders, which makes it easier since we won't have to wean them.

We decided to name them after Avatar:The Last Airbender (which is an awesome anime btw) characters as some of them immediately reminded us of their namesakes.  So with no further ado, here's a preview of the Benders as they first arrived.

and a bonus photo... of the fearless Prince Zuko.


  1. Soooo cute! Kudos to you two for fostering all these kitties!
