Here’s an update on the lovely Fatima and her kittens, who were in a shelter in Atlanta, GA. The good news is they’re out of the shelter thanks to the efforts of Jacquelyn Babush, and the little family is being fostered at Susan Graham’s house!
Susan thinks Fatima is half Aby and half Bengal. She used to breed Bengals and Fatima has that look about her in addition to her obvious Abyssinian heritage. She looks like an Aby but has spots on her belly and stripes on her legs.
The five kittens, whose eyes have just opened, are 100% adorable!
And Fatima is such a good and patient mother. Check out this video of her nursing her brood:
Susan is fostering the family through FurKids, and they will be tested for FeLV/FIV next week. FurKids is Georgia’s largest no-kill shelter, specialising in cats but also rescuing and fostering dogs.
Susan writes: Many people have now come forward to ask to take one of the kittens home with them, and they will make sure everyone is taken care of on the list. The kittens and their mama can go to their new homes as soon as they are spayed and neutered. I’m going to try to get that done in about 8 weeks (at 10 weeks old) so they can go earlier to their new homes.
Fatima is a very calm, affectionate girl who is in excellent health, about 11 months old. She is also in need of a good home in about 2 months from now.”
