Fostering the Fosters Friday ~ by Annie

Kitties!
Paybacks are a bitch.
This is Dupont Lucy.
Or maybe Stevie for Stevies Nicks & Colbert.
Don't let the Mosaic Lady-bestowed new name fool you.
WE ARE NOT KEEPING HER!
She and Smudge (who you will meet another time) are foster kitties of the nice TAAG President who is in Italy right now drinking great wine.
We are Fostering the Fosters.
This is Mosaic Lady's new mantra, and I make SURE she repeats it often.

Of course, the dawg is again suffering from her new-kitty-induced OCD, just when she'd finally recovered from the bout I triggered. She was so fixated and out of control the first night she didn't touch her dinner.
She is a freak.

Mosaic Lady met this kitty at a local adoption day last Friday. Someone found her in the Dupont parking lot and she was being fostered at a local vet hospital. But she was spending her whole life in a cage there, which explains why she spent the entire adoption day sleeping and purring on ML's chest. She refused to be in a cage another second when she knew she didn't have to. (It's easy for us kitties to sniff out and exploit ML's pity.)

Now she runs all through the house creating havoc with all us kitties and the dawg. She is really pissing me off because that is MY job.
Mosaic Lady wanted to see how I do with a kitten. Now she has her answer. BADLY. I do BADLY with any other cats that might want something that is MINE.
Like space and air.

Mosaic Lady thinks Dupont Lucy Stevie has gorgeous markings and the most unusual furs.
She looks like she is wearing a raccoon coat, or a possum or squirrel coat, or maybe bunny furs?

Stevie is a bit of a frootbat, so maybe by next Friday, Mosaic Lady will manage to get some good shots of her face.

Wow, more fosters! :) Stevie looks very cute. :) It is very kind of the Mosaic Lady to help out by fostering! I wish we could foster, but sadly my human dad is very allergic to all cats except for Sphynx.

Dupont Lucy Stevie looks a bit like Bonnie, but wif diluted stripes. Poor Sadie; more intruders! At least Annie is gettin what she deserves!
Purrs! An nosekisses to my sweet Sadie Badie!

Annie, you have the right attitude, if you ask me. Don't let those youngsters invade your space! Show them who's the boss!
Even if she does have lovely white paws.

Parker said...

I think that your lovely kitty has fur that is called "ticked" - she is very pretty!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We feel for you, mom fosters momcats and kittens (and sometimes motherless kittens) and it used to be a real pain. Then dad built a speshal room in da basement and mom keeps them down there and we know mom is not going to keep any cuz when dad asks she sez "three is enuff" and gives him the look. We're sure your mom will be stronger this time and not bring more into the fambly. Tho this one is kinda cute, and we bet the other one is too, cute only counts in getting out of trouble or obtaining treats!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Uh-oh....I have to say she's quite cute and sounds really friendly. I bet you'll like her soon enough. But don't worry, I'm sure she'll find a great home (somewhere else)!

Daisy said...

Aaaaawww! Stevie/Dupont/Lucy is very cute. I love her beautiful furs. Annie, now that you are a permanent resident, you can help make the fosters feel comfortable during their stay.

Annie, I think you would look very beautiful in pink because of your sleek and shiny black furs.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Lucy is cute! Those are very nice pictures of her. I look forward to seeing more pictures of her face.

I canot believe that you have to put up with a mentally deranged dog and any number of foster cats. I think you deserve a medal my feline friend. Oh, my human says that your new foster cat has beautiful markings and she looks just like a 'cute lickle bunny wabbit..awww'. Oh please.How pathetic.

Do you want the number for the RSPCA?

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

I just read Yao-lin's comment - he cracks me up : )

Now are you sure that you are only fostering these fosters? What if they worm their way into the Mosaic Lady's heart like you did? You should do some bad things and make sure they get blamed, it's devious, but a cat's got to do what a cat's got to do!

ASTOR CATS said...

Kelly's right, Annie. Look how devious you were to worm your way in with ML. Foster kitties have a way of working their way into your heart. And we knows - you got heart.

Ooooo Annie.Another cat to steal your thunder.Hmmm, Stevie is cute though( but not as cute as you).I think you should show her the fun of living in a home.
So nice of your Mom!

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Stevie seems to be so happy there wif all of you. It must be so hard to be a foster, get sit-yeeated and den haf to leave. *shudder*. Jus fink, yoo could maybe haf lots of fun wif Stevie alla time. Dat fur is kinda funky dontcha fink?

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

PS. Hey did you watch the Men dancing the other nite? Mommy has found her celebrity boyfurriend she claims, she totally lovedlovedloved Helios' dancing!!

Lux said...

M.L. is very nice to help all these fosters - you should be very proud of her. (Just as long as she remembers ... :))

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

uh oh Annie, better assert your rightful place as the House Panther Queen ASAP before Stevie gets any ideas.

Mommy gets sad I'm an only kitty, but I'm not dumb. I'm happy with everything being MINE. Well, I do have that pesky Bendrix, but I'm getting used to that evil alter ego stuff.

I'm so glad Sadie and Victor hit it off. Something told me they would.

Poor woofie. Yes, I said it. It must be hard to be the only woofie in a houseful of kitties. I am not suggesting another woofie of course.

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Thank you dearest Mosaic cats and also Annie now for loving me so very much and sending me your healing purrrrs and purayers. I have eaten my dinner and drank some water. Mommy puts me in my litterbox and I go pee, then I scratch the carpet and headbunk her. I purrr as she puts me back into the frying pan. I hope she still likes me after I put a hole in her thumb...she should be faster with that pill thing!
Love Peachy
