Bubblegum takes babysitting seriously! 😽
Our work is done! No more hissing! When kittens are this small, getting them used to people and handling is so easy. They are now used to getting food from people and totally relate to positive interactions. 12 hours later no hissing at all. They are still a little skittish, but that will soon go away, once we are with them they happily climb all over you, roll over and purr quickly. They are eating well, even though it is super messy. They all use the litter box perfectly. #babycat #nohissing
Holly’s babies have a lot to say. We have started feeding them to help them get more used to people, they are five weeks old now and all have a beautiful teeth! We thought we had two grey, but one seems to be a super fluffy diluted tortie. They are still shaking a little as they are super scared, but after a little while roll over and love belly rubs. It must be super confusing for them.
Apparently this is the kittens favorite chair! Also so much #floof with this family. #floofycat #floofsofinstagram #floofers #floofy

Holly’s babies are growing up fast! They are almost 4 weeks old, and starting to wobble around! Holly goes in and out her feral den to avoid us. When she is not in the den, she lashes out at us! She is the best mama cat, and her babies are all fat and healthy.
Adopt the sweetest Panther! He was dumped outside an apartment complex and was in poor shape when we picked him up, nasty ear infection, virus and super skinny. This young boy has recovered beautifully and is now looking for his #foreverhome He is in Maryland and gets along fine with other cats too #blackcatlove #blackcatsrock

Lemon 🍋 is doing great, her leg is healing beautifully and she is gaining strength and agility. She jumps and climbs up everywhere. Her favorite place to hang is on your desk and snuggle! She has the softest fur and can’t get enough cuddles. #lovebug #snugglecat #blackcatlove #blackcatsrock
Chelsea’s baby’s eyes are slowly changing from blue to green! Although London’s are staying 💙 the babies are also starting to eat on their own. #rescuedkittens #babycats #kittenstagram #kittensdaily
Working with unsocialized cats can be intimidating as they can be hard to work with. Mama Holly does not mess around. She is not used to people at all, and is protecting her babies. She now comes at us lunging. Playpens are useful as they have many entry points to stay away from her teeth and claws. It does. Not get to be as spotless as we would like, but we do our best in the situation and keep them warm, good food, water and monitor as much as we can #mamabear
Chelsea’s babies eyes are green/blue. So looks like they will be changing any day this week! #floofy #floofycat #floofycatsofinstagram
One week old! Holly’s babies are growing nicely. Holly is eating well, but now lashing out and not hiding anymore. Still keeping it to a minimum and as little stress as possible for all. Cats if they don’t have human interaction in those key 6-12 weeks can be totally unsocialized. The babies even hiss 🐍 already. Once they start wobbling around we plan on playing and cuddling with them as much as possible so they end up being social, cuddly cats!
We know Holly is a good mom as the babies are gaining great weight each day. This was the first time we got to see her feeding them. It was time for dinner, but when we got inside, she did not move. We snuck a quick photo and left her. She must also be getting more comfortable with being here as she is not dashing behind the litter box when the light goes on and the door opens to her room. Giving the babies time to have their dinner, and then will give mom hers. #mamacat #mamabear #caturdaynight
Keeping a watchful eye out on mama Holly’s baby’s each day is always interesting. Fortunately she always goes to the opposite side of the play pen (unsocialized cats always try avoid interacting, however they can lunge at you, so keeping a watchful eye on them is key). If you watch them they are licking their lips which is a sign of fear, not aggression. The babies are all growing well and are healthy. Holly is a great mom and taking great care of them. #communitycat #communitycats #felinefriday
Mama Chelsea and her tabby babies!! London, Waterloo, and twins Richmond and Putney. These guys are 5 weeks old now and starting to eat a little food. They copy what mom does, and as she loves dry food, they all have started with crunchies too! #tabbycatsofinstagram #tabbylife #tabbycatsrule #tabbykitten #tabbycatworlddomination #tabbykittens #tabbycatsofig
Mama Holly dumps all the blankets into the litter box, and you carefully have to sort though everything to make sure no kittens are getting thrown out! She is still super weary of people but is taking great care of the babies. Trying not to stress her to much, so quick litter box changes, new food, water and leaving her alone to care for her babies in a quiet, warm space. #mamacat #fosteringsaveslives
Fostering feral mama cats and babies is pretty easy, the moms avoid you and just need a place to hide while you replace food, clean litter each day. The best is not to bother them too much and monitor them from a distance. Mom is looking after the babies beautifully. Each morning everything from the play pen is nicely deposited into the litter box for housekeeping! She just keeps her babies and then hides behind the litter box while we remove it all and replenish fresh water, food and replace the litter. They do best in a quiet warm space. Once the babies are 4-5 weeks old they get moved into another play pen for daily interaction and socializing. Right now its more important for mom to feel comfortable and look after her babies. As we know cats don’t like change, even well socialized cats can take a while to adjust to a new place. Its been really cold at night and these are the lucky guys. But we know that so many kittens are being born on the streets and in addition to keeping her babies safe moms still have to try find food #tnr is so key right now to try and put a stop to this craziness and prevent others from suffering. #tnrworks #fosteringsaveslives #communitycat
Bubblegum! Always has to check everything out. He is into everything, and randomly we find cones on his head. No other cat ever does this. Just Mr Bubblegum. #helpplease #coneofshame #coneofshameproblems #kittenlife #kittensdaily #tabbycatsrule

Sassy and I know it! Waterloo with her little pink nose and all that floof! Even Bubblegum jumped up to meet the little princess 👑 #tabbykittens #tabbykitten #tabbylife #tabbycatworlddomination
Lovely Lemon 🍋 is doing great, she now is using her back leg all the time, she is able to jump up and down onto things and is very happy being a desk cat and hanging close while you work! She also enjoys her new space so she can suntan and watch out of the window. #blackcatsofinstagram #blackcatsrock
Two siblings brothers Cleo and Chico were adopted. They were rescued from a backyard and we were able to socialize them. We trapped the rest of the family of unsocialized adults that has made a home there, #trapneuterreturn back to their colony were they are given shelter, food and water. So many kittens that enter the shelters come from backyards and alleys. This is the only way to stop the flooding of kittens every year. #spayandneuter #trapneuterreturn
The bluest eyes! This bunch have always slept all over each-other, and some don’t wake up, even of others are playing right on top of them! The #heavysleeper is right in the middle of them all #tabbycatsofinstagram #floofycat #floofycatsofinstagram
London. The most inquisitive of the bunch! He stands big and tall, his eyes were the first to open, he is the squeakiest of the bunch and the most opinionated too! #kittenlife #tabbykittens #tabbykittensofinstagram
Lovely Lemon 🍋 has full run of a bigger space, she found a Kitty Kasa, and made it hers ❤️😻. Both of these ladies are so sweet with each other, and it’s so cute Lemon moved close to this family and set up her new home right next to them. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone 😽 #blackcatlove #blackcatsrule #amazingcats #catsareamazing #mamacat
