This is an overview of the best pictures of our beautiful mama Summer. Okay, so you can’t watch her grow like the kittens, but I couldn’t leave her out!
This is one of the best parts of fostering – watching them blossom from a nervous, uncertain, or sickly cat into a self-assured, friendly, and healthy cat. At first, Summer was frightened of the new environment and new people, even becoming so uncomfortable that she wouldn’t eat. She recovered emotionally and physically in time to endure a difficult birth, after which she didn’t seem quite sure how to be a mom. Through the weeks, I’ve watched Summer gain trust and confidence in being a mom and being a cat. Now she’s spayed, her babies are weaned, and it’s almost time for her to find a forever home where she can relax and be a kitten again. A happy ending for our mama is just around the corner.
