Introducing Kitten “Phoebe”

Kitten PhoebeA couple of days ago I promised pictures of the ninth and final kitten in the “foamed” litter, “Phoebe“. Trapped last week, she was fortunate enough to have avoided being foamed. She is very beautiful, but very shy. She doesn’t interact with the other kittens very much, prefering to sit on the cat condo.

She is calm while being held and handled, but just as she starts to relax, one of the other kittens will rocket past and you can sense she wants to be somewhere else. Butterfly and Victoria were like this at first, and they’ve both opened up nicely. Phoebe seems to be taking a lot longer to come out of her shell, so we’re spending extra time with her.

Perhaps this is simply an issue of her being the last one trapped. Maybe in a few more days she’ll start to enjoy the other kittens, or maybe she’ll always be more comfortable with people instead of other cats. Until she gets a little older and more used to things here, we’re going to continue working with her.

We’re not too concerned. She doesn’t object to human contact. Some cats simply prefer not to spend their time around other cats, and would rather relax in a comfortable, out of the way spot. A place where they can see what is going on, without actually getting involved…

In the next post, I’ll tell you about poor Lucky again. He had a bit of an accident, which had us very worried. After an expensive vet visit, it turned out not to be a big deal at all, but you will need to wait to find out what happened!

  1. PHOEBE IS STILL SHY AND IT HAS TAKEN ME 5 YEARS OF PURE LOVE TO GET HER THIS FAR. SHE IS A SWEET CAT AND STILL LOVES TO BE RUBBED UNDER HER CHIN,GINGER.BUTTERFLY IS NOW LOVEY, BUT WHAT A CAT SHE IS. SHE IS MISS PERSONALITY. BOTH FOAM KITTENS ARE SO LOVED AND TAKEN CARE OF GIVES THAT MUCH AND MORE LOVE BACK TO ME. I HOPE ALL THE FOAM KITTENS TURNED OUT OKAY. THESE TWO CHANGED MY LIFE, THAT IS FOR SURE!!!!

  2. PHOEBE AND LOVEY ARE 6 YEARS OLD THIS WEEK AND DOING VERY WELL AFTER BEING FOAM KITTENS. THEY DID CHANGE MY LIFE AND I AM SO HAPPY I ADOPTED THEM BOTH. I WISH I HAD A WINNING LOTTERY TICKET SO I COULD DONATE TO HAPPY HOME ANIMAL SANTCUARY FOR ALL THE WORK AND LOVE THEY GIVE ANIMALS. MY SON DOES KNOW MY WISHES WHEN I PASS AND HE WILL DONATE SOMETHING IN OUR NAME. HE HAS 5 LOVED CATS AND HE IS THE REASON I ADOPTED MINE AFTER A VISIT TO HIM AND HIS BABIES.

  3. My (Butterfly) Lovey and Phoebe will be 7 years old in a couple weeks and they are such a joy!!!!!! Not a day goes by that I don”T thank every one at Happy Home Sancuary for saving these wonderful cats and letting me adopt them. They are doing very well and I kid and say the foamed kittens became the snow kittens when we moved back to Nebraska five years ago April 1st. They are indoor cats, but they sure wonder what that snow is. I let them out on the patio the first snow they saw, and they did avoid it. So funny to watch. Nebraska abuse laws are a lot tougher on animal abuse, than Nevada, I hope theirs get tougher and I know Happy H Sancuary tries all the time to get them tougher.I hope all the foamed kittens are doing as well as mine and that they made their owners as happy as mine made me!!!!!!!! unconditional love is the very best!!!!!!
