Love this! My 18 year old sister @lilydonnellyy just started fostering, so I went on a little shopping spree and sent her everything she needs to get started, including a playpen! 😻 This thing takes up very little space, but it's a huge mansion for two tiny babies! You can find links to the playpens I use at kittenlady.org/supplies. #tinykittens #bigmansion #savingkittenslives #proudaunt #kittenlady

PHILADELPHIA: This Sunday I'm going to be doing a really fun event with the amazing folks at @acctphilly! I'll be teaching TWO back-to-back workshops, one on kitten care and one on community cats. There will be tons of information on helping cats and kittens locally, and you may get to meet a couple kittens too! 🐱❀️ The event filled up fast(!) but we just opened up about 30 additional seats--grab them now because they will fill up! Register at acctphilly.org/kittenlady 🐾 See you on Sunday! #savingkittenslives #kittenlady #acct ➑️➑️➑️ EDIT: sorry y'all, it's full now. πŸ™ But if you are really determined to come, you are welcome to stop by at 11:45 and see if we have some no-shows. It's possible we could have seats available but we won't know until Sunday. Thanks for understanding!

Chloe and Numpkin part 3️⃣! 🐱🐱 Question: Should I foster more than one kitten at once? Answer: Fostering a litter of kittens is amazing, but sometimes you do get solo babies who don't have the benefit of having littermates. Safely fostering kittens from different letters does require a bit more work due to the need for a 2 week separation period. If you're able to do it, it can make a huge impact on the lives of solo kittens, who benefit greatly from early exposure to feline friendship. Kittens do best with a friend--whether that's a littermate or a critter from another litter! While Chloe and Numpkin are a funny pair, there's no doubt that they both appreciate having a friend. ❀️ #critterfromanotherlitter #chloe #numpkin #kittenlady

Chloe and Numpkin part 2️⃣! 🐱🐱 Question: Can you introduce kittens of different ages? Answer: Potentially, with caution! Kittens of different developmental stages can provide learning opportunities and enrichment to one another, but will not necessarily be able to play fairly. For this reason, it's best to only allow kittens of different ages to play together under supervision so that no one gets hurt. While Chloe might look big and tough next to Numpkin, she's actually very gentle with him! ❀️ #critterfromanotherlitter #chloe #numpkin #kittenlady

Chloe and Numpkin part 1️⃣! Let's talk about introducing kittens! 🐱🐱 Question: Can you introduce kittens from different litters? Answer: Yes--after a separation period of 2 weeks. During the first 2 weeks, you should be treating for internal/external parasites and monitoring for symptoms of illness. After 2 weeks, as long as everyone is healthy and parasite free, they can become friends! The quarantine period is essential as it ensures that kittens are safe and healthy. #critterfromanotherlitter #chloe #numpkin #kittenlady

PSA: Did you know that I have a website full of instructional information about how to save kittens? ✨ Videos, written content, and links will help to answer many of the questions you may have about kitten care. Find the info you need at: KittenLady.org/save-kittens ❀️ As a reminder, I do not answer individual direct messages due to the truly overwhelming number I receive. Please utilize the resources I've created and if you have an animal in need, visit your local veterinarian. Thank you! #savingkittenslives #kittenlady

Best thing ever: I just became a kitten-aunt!!! 😻 My little sister @lilydonnellyy has been watching me raise kittens for half of her life, and now that she's turned 18, she decided that she wants to start saving kittens, too! πŸ™€ This week she went to @bfas_la and picked up her first foster babies, Macadamia and Mandarin (Numpkin lookalikes!) I couldn't be more proud of her for fostering. She's doing great so far, and it's fun helping her out (even though we are on opposite coasts!) Go Lily!!! #proudsister #proudaunt #kittenladyjr

Really, really, really exciting news! ✨ After weeks of consideration and many hours on the phone with potential adopters, I've officially found Chloe's forever home! ❀️ Because of her special needs, it was important to me to find the perfect family no matter how far. Chloe will be moving to the west coast in about a month, to be with a really amazing couple and their orange cat. They already adore Chloe to pieces! We are still sorting out the details of her move, and you can rest assured that I will be updating constantly and you'll still be able to follow Chloe's journey. For now, I wanted to share this exciting news so we can all celebrate! πŸŽ‰ #gochloego #teamchloe #kittenlady

We get it, you're adorable. ❀️ Numpkin loves his kitten coaster! #numpkin #kittencoaster #kittenlady @brunoandbooporiginals

Did you get to experience the eclipse? We didn't have the right eye gear, but Coco and I went for a walk to enjoy the weather and the change in daylight. Of course all Coco cares about is eating grass! 😹❀️ Love her so so much. My number one.

Two years ago today, I got a call from a fellow rescuer about a crazy situation. A man in his apartment building had been arrested (for something violent and horrific) a few days prior, and he had left behind a kitten and a pit bull who were now roaming freely in the apartment complex. I took in the kitten with the help of a friend (and someone else helped with the pup.) After a few days she warmed up and was adopted into a loving home with another friend. Makes me happy to know she will never, ever be in harm's way. Swipe left to see her now, sharing a message for all perpetrators of violence. πŸ™Š Love you, Taro, you strong and beautiful girl! #taro #kittenlady
