Kitten Season 2018 Comes to and End

Foster kitten season 2018 is coming to a close. My last two kittens will be going to their forever home tomorrow evening and I could not be more excited for them and their new family. These two, their journey was a long one. Especially for Jack who had to overcome a spinal injury half way through his stay with me. He has forever touched my heart and I was blessed to be able to help him and his siblings grow, thrive, and get adopted. These two will always be my special little babies. I love you Jack and Emma.
