But such is the work of a foster.
I can't help myself taking trips down memory lane... remembering what it was like when they first arrived from the vet's... all tiny, fragile and so vulnerable. Today, they are all strong, strutting teenage cats. They certainly have come far.
Let me take you on a journey with me... one that began five months ago... with playful Bombay and the observant Callas.
The other unbelievable thing is just the way the kittens sleep -- how they can fall asleep just about anywhere.
And here are pictures of Bombay back then...
And here is Bombay now.
But however much they grew, however big they got, they never stopped being loving, affectionate cats.
Here is Callas staring up at me like he always does.
And here is Bombay wanting to be dipped.
And I admit, I often let them walk all over me.
At the drive, a Chinese news team was there to cover the event. The reporter wanted a cat or kitten to hold while she closed the segment and Callas was picked to go on TV.
This here was the drive at Ngee Ann City, the kittens' second adoption drive. It was here that they met a young couple who promptly fell in love with them. The young couple is now their new loving owners.
Sometimes the kittens caused us painful injuries...
Other times, they scared me half to death with the injuries they inflicted on themselves. The recent and most shocking one was Bombay's accident in the cage.
There were also times when the kittens fell sick, like when Diva (now known as Cloey) came down with the flu and Bombay had the fever.
I hope Bombay and Callas will remain together always. They really are super close brothers. When I tried adopting Bombay out alone, Callas was not able to cope well at all. Here are some shots of the two brothers together.
This is one of my favourites where Callas has his arm curled around Bombay. Everyone who walked past their cage were oohing and aahing at the sight of the loving brothers.
And this is the way I will remember them best of all -- two tiny things who would fall asleep on me at the drop of a hat.
Take care, my darlings! I wish you the happiest lives!
