Meet Marble: Thumper
All the marbles are such wonderful kitties. They love to cuddle, be pet, and play!! They love children, other kitties, and dogs. Truly purrfect.
Thumper and his siblings are some of the lucky ones, comparatively of course. Two ladies who volunteer their time doing TNVR with us were out setting traps on a Friday evening (had been turning into a typical Friday evening for them), 14Apr2023 to be exact. As usual, there are many, many cats needing to be fixed, and they were busy that night! At the end of the night, there were many cats in the traps, and all of them had to be names. After naming hundreds of kitties, it can be difficult to think of unique names weekly; they try not to use the same ones all the time, and it's often hard to tell if a cat is a male or female in the traps. So, being tired, and out of creative ideas, the ladies decided to name one of the brown marble tabby cats Marbles and headed back to the warehouse. All of the trapped kitties were secured, fed and watered and tucked in for the night.
Saturday morning came and the cats were fed, traps were cleaned and all looked good. When it was time for dinner one of the ladies lifted Marbles' trap cover to discover kittens had been born in the trap. Of course there's that first moment of panic as we didn't know how feral the mom was, and we weren't sure if she'd let us move her and help with the kittens and didn't want to stress her more and harm the kittens. But she was ok with being moved and Marbles and her family went to Angie and Tom's house and were placed in a covered kennel where it was discovered that mom was not mean, just very scared. She decided she liked to be rubbed and the wet food was really nice. She still hissed at sudden movement but was a wonderful mom and raised four healthy, beautiful babies. The Marbles crew was named Aggie, Tonk, Thumper, and Bennington after different kinds of marbles!
As a general rule, we recommend that young kittens only go in pairs or to households that already have another pet. Young kittens on their own, no matter how much attention they get from humans, usually get bored and tend to be more destructive. They need another animal to help socialize them (to learn how to appropriately wrestle, boundaries, etc). Most times having another cat is the best, though some may be okay with a gentle dog.

All of our adoptable animals are cared for and assessed in foster homes (we do not have a shelter), up to date on age appropriate vaccinations and have been spayed or neutered and tested for FeLV/FIV, before they are adopted. They have had de-worming medication as a standard of care and Flea/Tick/Ear Mite preventive treatment. Medical records will be released with the adopted pet.
