Friday Fun: Murkin & His Kittens

Okay, Murkin might just be one of the biggest sweethearts ever!  His humans foster kittens before they’re adopted and he helps.  Murkin is SO gentle and careful.  Nothing phases him, even when he gets a kitten stuck to his foot in the 2nd video.  I’m melting!


Friday Fun: The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee

I have fallen in love with the itty bitty kitty committee. First—the name is perfection. Second—it has consistently outstanding kitten photos, not schmaltzy and you can just about hear them purring and feel their warm kitten tummies. Third—it’s excellent blogging about the joys and sometimes sorrows of fostering kittens. And, it turns out, Laurie has a shop, lalalaurie, on and you know how I love etsy. There’s even a post about crafting with kittens.

The IBKC takes in kittens and their mom, if they’re together, for the Tacoma/Pierce County Humane Society to raise, socialize, and love until they’re ready for adoption. Very cool! Check with your local shelter if you’re interested in fostering kittens. As the summer progresses, shelters will be overflowing with kittens. It takes commitment, but it’s a wonderful thing.

Charlene Butterbean is the resident cat and supreme Big Sister who loves the kittens and seems to take her roll quite seriously, well, maybe not always that seriously.
