As you know, we foster kittens for the local humane society. We had a total of 13 kitten go through our home from June - October. I love it afterwards when I see the humane society post pictures of the kittens getting adopted with their new families. Paul always says that we don't need any new cats, so we can't adopt them, but he doesn't mind how much I foster.
Then came a litter of two with a severe upper respiratory infection. They even had to be on immune boosting meds on top of their antibiotics and eye cream. Next thing I knew, Paul fell for this kitten named Brandi. He kept saying what a great kitten she was.
Of course, Bobby was missing and we were all sad from that, and Paul said he thought we should adopt this kitten. On Halloween, the day she got spayed, we made it official and renamed her Claudia (From the book From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler, which I read to the boys a couple of summers ago). The shelter took this picture when I picked up Claudia from surgery. I was in costume because we were headed out trick or treating.
