Here’s a little throwback of our superstar survivor Starlight with one of our ‘foster fail’ kitties Hope (Hopie) who was as much as a miracle to survive as Starlight. .
.
.
. .
Starlight is around 3.5 weeks old here and is missing the majority of her fur after coming into care as a tiny orphan baby approx 1 week old suffering from sunburn after being found on hot concrete on a 38 C (Celsius) day, as a result she lost all the fur on her legs, tummy and half way up her tiny body.  Nothing could keep her down though, she survived parvo/Panleuk exposure twice in consecutive weeks and then as a secondary infection due to an extremely weakened immune system, she had to deal with the worst ‘cat flu’ I have ever seen and quiet a few times I thought we’d loose her.  Starlight isn’t ready just yet for adoption as we deal with lingering eye issues from that period in her short life, but we’re hopeful that’ll all clear up soon.
.

Maverick left this morning with his forever people, and I cried like a baby 🙈 so embarrassed! Sometimes it hits harder than others when they leave my care, but I’m very thankful to have already received updates/pics with him and his new mini humans and they are head over heals in love with him already. I’m such a sook ☺️

Rise and shine - nothing like starting the day with some trills, purrs and grouchy meows...
.
.
.

Adorable Ezra and beautiful Willa are both still available and are waiting very patiently for their forever people. If you think that could be you, please head over to @cheltenhamcatrescue website and fill out an adoption enquiry form, or message me for further information.

Cleanliness is next to godliness - at least that’s what’s I’ve heard.... pretty sure Taj has the cleanest paws around town.
.
.
.
.
The boys are slowly finding the courage to venture out of their room, with Taj being the braver of the 2, I can’t wait to see them confident enough to be running around like little maniacs! .
.
.
Any ideas on where that phrase originated?

Happy Easter everyone 🐣 just as an FYI Maverick is with us for a few more days while his new humans are away for the Easter holidays.  Winston found his forever people yesterday and it was love at first sight for everyone 🙌🏼. And I’ve also had quite a few people message asking questions that have already been explained in previous posts, please take the time to go through my other posts if you have any questions as you’ll most likely find the answer, I’m not going to answer the same thing over and over again, thanks.

Hey, hi! Taj here, just trying to figure out what the big deal is and why my foster mama is so happy.... I mean I know I almost died quite a few times from that nasty Panleuk/Pavo disease, it was pretty touch and go there for a little while as my body fought as hard as it could and to be honest, I really thought for a minute or two it might be easier to cross over and join the other babies that passed, but in the end, after my brother Tucker kept bugging me wanting to play and these humans I’m living with kept on whispering to me to be strong, I decided to hang around and see what the fuss is about...
.
.
I’m 8 weeks old and tiny for my age, foster mum says I’m about the size of a 5 week old but I eat like a horse so I’m going to grow up big and strong and healthy and have an amazing life, I just have to be brave enough to want to go out of the room I’ve been in for the past month as me and Tucker fought for our lives.... it’s a little scary out there but we’re working on it. .

Throwing it back to the sweetest Stevie Wonder impersonation you’ll ever see....
.
.
.
Rosie came into my care with her mum so I could keep an eye on them after the poor mama cat had to have an emergency spay surgery due to one of her kittens (who sadly passed) being stuck inside the birth canal.  Rosie was the only surviving baby and man she enjoyed having the milk bar all to herself. .
.
.

You can follow adorable Rosie at @lil.bub.rosie and see for yourself how beautifully she’s grown up.

Can we make Time - warp Tuesday’s a thing?  Whilst I definitely need the break from fostering tiny babies for my own health, here’s a flashback to one of my previous fosters Clancy - such an adorable little guy!  You can follow Clancy and his adopted sister at @clancy.pants.and.bindi .

Maverick (yesterday’s post) has a meet tomorrow morning, fingers crossed it all goes well.

Thanks for all the support and comments you guys, really appreciate all of you x

** update - Maverick has been adopted **
.
The adorable faces of Maverick.... This gorgeous little man is waiting oh so patiently for his forever people to find him & he really hopes it won’t take too much longer.  Adoption enquiry forms are located on Cheltenham Cat Rescues website (link in my bio).
.
.
.
.
I still have in my care the older kittens Ezra, Starlight, Delilah (who leaves us today for her forever home) Willa & Winston who are having their spay/neuter surgery today and are ready for adoption, the cuteness that is Toastie, she has 500 people wanting to adopt her so no more enquiries please.  And our survivor boys Taj and Tucker, the tuxedo twins and everyone is doing great. .
.
.
.
.
.
All the younger kittens have moved on, and I’ll be taking a break from fostering for a little while once the big kids have all been adopted.  I haven’t slept in my own bed or been able to sleep through the night without feeding babies since the beginning of August last year, that’s a long time to be sleep deprived & I also have my own health issues that I need to deal with - I have a pretty big operation coming up soon that I’m not looking forward to one bit, one of the many joys of living with chronic illness.
.
.
.
.
I’ll do my best to keep you guys updated, and I’ll be posting when I can and there is still a whole bunch of cuteness being fostered in my house that I hope you’ll enjoy but I also hope you can understand that it’s been a hell of an emotional roller coaster ride for me, my hubby Rob and our own fur kids these past months and it’s time for me to take a small step back, rest, rejuvenate and take care of myself. .
.
.
.
I appreciate you guys so much for being part of the fostering journey with me, whether you’re a new follower or been with us from the beginning or anywhere in between... thank you x
.
.
* I hope you’ll choose to hang around as I will be fostering babies again in the future *

Wait for it..... I think Toastie may have finally worn out her voice.
.
.
.
.
I’m going to be taking a break from Ig as I try and focus on my health, as I’m no good to anyone without that.  The younger kittens may be moved to a different carer within the rescue, the older cuties can stay as they’re all ready for adoption in the next little while.  I hope you guys understand and I thank you for your understanding.  I’ll be back....
