These little gems come with a care package: lunch bag of kitty litter, 3 cups of kitten food, a food bowl, a water bowl, and a litter box scooper in a box with a lid that you can use as a litter box temporarily. This way you will not have to race out and get supplies in order to start loving your newly adopted kitty.

These wonderful loving kittens have been saved from a feral life...a life without a family... a life where they would have to fight for food. About 1 year ago, we started feeding feral cats outside our kitchen door. There were only a few at first, but as we continued to provide food, more and more came. We could not approach them, but they were so beautiful and so hungry. Soon after, two young kittens were left to fend for themselves. We managed to catch them and after only a couple days, they were already warming up to us. After a couple weeks, they were as tame as if we'd gotten them from a pet store. We found them homes.

Last November (while we had swine flu-ick), another young kitten was left to fend for himself. This young one too became friendly after a very short time. He too was found a home. By spring, the few ferals were now a dozen ferals and many of them were pregnant. Oh my gosh! We were not only looking at feeding a dozen cats, but many dozens if all they female ferals had kittens.

So I did some research, found some organizations that teach you how to trap ferals, get them fixed, and send them back to their colony. A much better life for them. If their colony continues to grow, it will be survival of the fittest. It made more sense to not let the colony grow. I couldn't bear the thought of aborting the little kittens, so I trapped the pregnant females, put them in a secure room in our garage where they had their kittens and nursed them. The feral mom would let us touch her only because she believed she was protecting her babies. We handled every kitten every day. At 4 -5 weeks, however, Momma cat started hissing at us, so we pulled the kittens from the mom, got Mom fixed, and sent her back to the colony. So far, our family has saved 17 kittens from a feral life, and we've fixed 10 cats and sent them back to colony. My neighbor too saved 6 kittens from a feral life. I am helping her adopt out her kittens as well. All total kittens so far 23. 14 have new homes already, and We have 9 left to find homes.

We want only serious cat lovers to adopt our gems, therefore there is a $20.00 adoption fee. New parents will be responsible for shots. We are located near Bradshaw Rd & Calvine Rd. in Elk Grove.

Note that the first picture is of a pair (Batman & Robin). We prefer to adopt Batman & Robin to one family. If you are looking for two kittens, please consider Batman & Robin. I will discount the adoption fee to $35.00 for the pair providing one care package for the two of them.
