My first litter of foster kittens arrived today. There are four of them, 4 weeks old, all female. One is all black and the others, all gray tabbies.

My assignment is to "socialize" the kittens, meaning, give them a lot of love and attention and get them used to being pets. Right now, they're afraid whenever I pick them up. We want them to purr every time a prospective owner picks them up.

Oh, yes, I can do that! What did my friend Angie call it? "Snuggle therapy."

And I am requested to name them. I don't know why, but the Richmond Animal League insists. Okay, the black one is Miss Fortune. The tabby twins will be Aurora and Ariel, and the tabby runt, Tinkerbell. Those were Sydney's recommendations (my four-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter).

Ah.....! My house is no longer catless.

I am praying for the kittens that they all find good, loving homes.

Enjoy your snuggle therapy.

I loved our cat and would love to get another one. (He died a number of years ago)

But, alas, we love our future daughter-in-law too much. She's allergic to cats and would never be able to come to our house again if we got one. And we think she's a keeper!
