- I wanted a cat and my husband did not. We compromised and decided to foster 2 kittens from the local shelter, bottle-feeding and burping them when they were just 5 days old. (You can look through the 2008 archives for pictures and video of all this). When it came time to give them back, we just couldn't do it. We adopted them in October 2008. This is where we share their stories, pictures and adorable little personalities. Welcome!
