In this video, you'll see a quick summary of my KITTEN KITS workshop at Silicat Valley Cat Convention! Together, we built dozens and dozens of robust supply kits for use in local foster programs. You can find the supplies I mention in the video at: -- and maybe you can donate a kit to YOUR local shelter!

    • We just got 2 kittens (vet said 2 days old) last Saturday. We've been using everything you suggested except we've been using a huge hot/cold water boolttle and refill with very hot tap water every 2 hours when we feed them. Where can we buy a warming disc? Is it battery operated? It would really be convenient right now!! If anyone can answer, I'd be grateful and thank you in advance. We're in Wisconsin.

  • I found a cat who was a stray, people ignored him and two people almost hit him with their CAR! 😾 (YES they SAW him) I took him in my home to foster him. I found him a good furever home, but a few days later, I found out that he passed away. I felt the loss more than anybody because I had a connection with him. R.I.P Ginger

  • This is so amazing!!! These kits will be so helpful! I foster in LA and can honestly say I wish I would've received something like this! Of course I purchased all these items after watching your videos. We currently have a group of 4 babies that we picked up last week. I just purchased your book, Big book of little kittens for my 5, 7, and 10 year old kids to read. During this quarentine fostering these babies and teaching my kids how to properly care for the little ones has really gotten us through some scary times. I can't thank you enough for your videos, they have taught me so much and really inspired me to begin fostering in the first place. Especially when I had my first round of fosters who were special needs, one of which never left our house 😘

  • Um, are you able to do something about the subtitles? It actually said "you need to warm them up before you beat them". I'm sure people will realize you don't suggest hitting the kittens, but at the same time, it's important to get the real point correct so they understand what you are saying!

  • A couple of years ago I got a 2 kittens for my barn to take care of the mice out there. I got 2 from my grandma she found the mom dead after they were 5 weeks old so she took care of them for 1 week so I ended up taking care of them for to week we started to introduce the kitten to the mom cat outside. Luck for use she thought they were her kittens so we moved them out there at 8 weeks. The mom cat outside just had baby’s. They are wonderful cats now so sweet and cute. I’m thank full my grandma found them. Sorry if late this video reminds me of them

  • I found 4 abandoned kittens in my garage . After 2 days of putting out food for the mother with no response, I started caring for the little ones. I had taken care of puppies when I was a kid but that was 45 years ago and I had the mom. I was scared but I was their only hope. You were very helpful and I followed your instructions. It was such a joyous journey. They went on vacation and to church with us. I love them so much, I decided to keep all 4. Thank you.

  • You know, your videos actually did helped me. We had 2 females cat that gave birth to 8 kittens each, the BF (now a ex) of my mother wanted to drown them We slapped him on the face and decided to foster those kittens. We took care of the babies, keep them safe, warm and they really did great! Now they all have their forever homes! :3 We failed on the last kitten that we decided to keep, she was named Kara (Galactica reference).

  • This is amazeballs! I just started fostering and my first litter was one of three feral 6 week old boys! in the beginning it was hard but patience and love builds the best support for these tiny animals! The three boys got castrated and two of them already found forever homes together! I still have the three month old that i am looking to get him adopted now! He is three months since he only became social since his brothers left! it feels so rewarding to give quality of life and to be a part of a solution to a HUGE problem! Don't, shop => ADOPT! and please snip those balls /neuter!

  • I am a first time kitten mom to two youngsters. Their Mom is a outside Farrell cat that lives in our back yard This is Her Second litter. The first litter She had 4 babies, When they were bout 3 months old We took them to a shelter. So now this is Her second litter That we decided to keep here. I broke them out of their Farrell state And they r just the nicest sweetest cats. After The Mom gave Me Her two babies She went and gave birth AGAIN to two more babies. I'm gonna take them all to get fixed I can't have too many cats living here. Anyways I have a question, Why is it that The Mother cat acts like She hates the two young cats She gave me? They r now 3&1/2 months old And they can't walk by the Mom or even look at Her cuz She will go up to them and hit them not to mention hiss and growl at them. The Mom is nice to My partner and I She just abuses Her older babies! Why is that???

  • This is so very important, in trying to help baby kittens....I remember about ten years ago, I bottle fed and fostered four kittens I found in the parking lot and I had to pull together info from my vet and a couple of other ladies, and it took a lot for me to understand what to do and how to do it. I also learned how important weighing them every few hours and recording it, too, to make sure they are gaining and not losing, which can happen very fast. They can go down hill scary fast if you aren't on top of it. These kits and the book will help so much....

  • Great video and thank you so much! I foster through my local shelter and we're looking into possibly doing something like this for new fosters next kitten season. I'm especially pushing for the thank you cards. Fostering can be so hard some days and I think having that little appreciation would be so amazing. One question though, where did you get the little mini packs of disinfectant wipes? Are they Rescue or a different brand? I'd love to use something like that in our kits but I can only find Rescue in the normal containers.

  • I recently found a stray kitten, and trap & spayed her, got her vet care etc. I had no plans on keeping her because I only felt the need to save her. She was living at a speedway gas station waiting for food. And when I saw her I knew she wasn't feral and had the potential to be someone's pet. But now I'm in the predicament that I should keep her. My bf is attached since we've had her for 3 weeks, but I just haven't gotten that attached. It would be unfair for me to keep her when someone else might fall in love with her more. But I still feel like I'm abandoning her by giving her away. I've been super depressed about the whole ordeal and now fostering seems like it's just not for me. It doesn't help that I've been begging my bf for a kitten for weeks, and now that I have one, I feel super shallow and awful about not loving her like I should. Any advice?

    BlushingEeveeBlushingEeveeYear ago
    • There’s no shame in rehoming a cat if you can find an owner who will care for them properly for life. But if your bf is in love with the cat, the choice might have been taken away from you!
