looking for kitten-fosterers  
So the little black kitten *is* pregnant. Only six months old, but I guess she was precocious. I'm currently pondering what to do; I could have Adobe do a spay-abort, but I'm awfully reluctant to do so when she's so far along -- I felt a bump on her side, pushed it a little, and the kitten went scooting away, so pretty far advanced. Dr. Johnson thought she'd deliver within a couple of weeks.

But I can't really foster her and move at the same time. So: is there anyone who is interested in fostering kittens? The mommy is very bold and friendly, and has black fur with golden highlights, a tiny little meow, and a huge purr. She loves being petted and adored, a real lap kitty. She tested negative for diseases and she's littertrained. I'd be interested in either people who wanted to foster her and the kittens and work with me on adopting them out, or people who wanted to adopt -- if I can't find a fosterer for her, I'm going to do the spay-abort, as bad as it would make me feel. If I can't find a home for her, it would be irresponsible to let her have kittens.

If you have any friends you think might be interested, point them here. I'm in San Jose, but I'm willing to drive a couple of hours if there's someone in Monterey or Sacramento.

Have you tried calling the Humane Society of Santa Clara Valley? When I went there to get a cat, they had very few kittens and many people wanting kittens.

Was this recently? It's kitten season right now, so I'm surprised if they don't have any. It's a good idea, though.

Hm, no. It was in January sometime. It may still be worth a try. There are a couple of other shelters in the area that might be able to help out. I found a few through google when I was looking for a place to go to get my cat.

Mmf. If you can't find anyone down there, talk to me, Laura. I'm in Sacramento and will be home, mostly, for the next few weeks anyway, and could maybe do this, but I have to clear it with the husband. So let me know.

So far I haven't found anyone -- are you still interested? My number is 650-544-5287, if you want to call and talk about it.
