2023 Foster Kittens & Reflection


2023 was the year Crazy Foster Kitten Lady became official (online at least). We began 2023 with less than 200 followers on Instagram. By March we hit 10,000 and we ended 2023 with over 66,000! With the surprising growth of the Instagram, this blog/shop/website were developed and our journey expanded!


This year I became a volunteer at our shelter, spending more time helping kitties while there as well as the fosters in my home. This is the first year we have had every single supply we needed available thanks to your donations. It was so wonderful and I am just so grateful. Your purchases through our shop have helped me pay for so many other expenses related to fostering (gas, supplies, etc.). I have big dreams and hope to expand even more in the future! If you've never read the story of how I began fostering, you can read it here!


 

I fostered 35 kitties this year - 2 mom cats and 33 kittens. Less than previous years because I also experienced my first extended stay guests thanks to ringworm and a few other medical issues.


My favorite kitten of the year was Jack, coming in second would be Peanut. Tied for third would be Sally, Butterfly, Charleston, Enid, and Ophelia.


Longest stay award goes to Sally who was here for 15 weeks and 1 day, coming in right behind her is Jack who left the day before she did! They also win the "sickest kittens" award! They both battled many health issues and WON!


This year I had my first out of state adoptions thanks to my Instagram. I have former foster kittens in Michigan, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and more!

AMY & SHELDON

Amy and Sheldon (named after the TV show Big Bang Theory) came to us next and were here while The Bugs were here. I transferred them to another foster (because I was going on vacation) so I don't know their adopters. See more of Amy & Sheldon here: #sheldon❤️amyfosterkittens23



 

SUMMER FUN

We welcomed another mom and her two babies, Slushy & Scooter, next and enjoyed seeing Momma Sprinkle come out of her shell. She was a kitten herself and very nervous in the beginning. She opened up and is now living her best life with her kids all together. They were adopted by a wonderful family and their names are now Eloise, Simone, and Scooter (they kept his name and his nickname Scooty Booty). They have an Instagram you can follow here!

ENID & OPHELIA

We were pretty full but when I saw theses two tiny fluff balls I just had to have them. Since they came right after the Addams Family we gave them names from the show/movie also. Soon after arriving they earned the nickname "Dust Bunnies." They were adopted together and have an Instagram here! See more of The Dust Bunnies here#opheliaandenidfosterkittens2023



 

JACK & SALLY

These two were the story of my year. From their interesting arrival to their extra long stay, and all of their issues in between. They were the most unique story of 2023 for sure! Jack was adopted and has an Instagram here. Sally is now named Piper and was adopted by the same momma who adopted Momma Bee from the bug family!

JANE, SAGAN, MICHA, HERMIONE

These four cuties came to me from another foster friend. She raised them from less than a day old and I took over so that Sally could have some friends! Sagan and Hermione were adopted together and their names are now Bert (Hermione) and Ernie (Sagan). Jane was adopted into a family with two other cats. Micha was adopted into a family with another kitty! See more of Sally's friends here: #sallyandfriendsfosterkittens23

FOX & FANCY

Jack needed some friends since at that time he was too small to play with Sally. Fox and Fancy came from the same foster friend! They were adopted together and are now named Zorro and Elegante "Ellie" which is Spanish for Fox and Fancy! See more of Jack's friends here: #jackandfriendsfosterkittens23
