Kitten Associates is Born...Ass End First!

There comes a point in your life where you start to see a direction you need to take. You can avoid it or run away from it. You can meet it head on and get bugs in your teeth, but you gotta do something.

I can't sit here and know little babies are being euthanized, along with their mamas. It's just so wrong on so many levels. No animal should be put down just due to space limitations or budget reasons, but that's how it goes.

Since volunteering with local rescue groups hasn't worked well for me, I'm just going to do my own thing. I am scared shitless, but perhaps that will motivate me to find a way to get this to work out? There's a lot of work to do, but I've already got things started.

Of course, I'm doing this bass-ackwards. I have no funding. My 501(3)c paperwork hasn't even been downloaded off the web yet. I'm working on getting onto Petfinder because I seem to already have foster cats coming here soon, but I DO have one thing figured out!

Sam gave my group a name. We were driving in the car, talking about whether or not I should make a go of it on my own and he just blurted out; “How 'bout Kitten Associates?”

YES! Done! Locked and loaded. Love it!

My first two babies under the Kitten Associates rescue moniker, you already met last week. They're at foster mama, Maria's home in McDonough, GA until they can hitch a ride back Northeast with Aunt Izzy, our CiCH friend.

Maria sent some photos of the babies. They look big and happy! I still need to name them! Any ideas? One boy. One girl.

Their Mama, a sweet calico is already adopted by a nice lady in North Carolina. Mama needs to be spayed still, but for now she is very comfy and happy in her foster home and to be back with her babies for awhile longer.

So two kittens that I have to find homes for and pay out-of-pocket for anything they need while with me, is a good start. I can afford this. No problem. But...

...I forgot to take it steps.


Soooo cute...and such a happy outcome for your first venture! One of the babies seems to have more white--one seems to have more black. Name them Salt & Pepper? ;-)

for at least trying to go it alone. The IBCC auctioned off the cats names to raise some cash. I'm sure you could do the same. Best of luck!

Well done, Robin. Follow your heart, and good luck with all the rest of your fantastic work to come.

How about Roar and Sach - the names aren't as cute as the kittens, but they are *very* blotchy!

How about Cameo and Silhouette in honor of their cut-out looking markings. Silhouette could be nicknamed something like Silly. Very adorable kittens, even for this dog person.

Good luck Robin in this endeavor! Those 2 sweet little kittens are so adorable, I just want to squeeze em every time I see em!! :) How about Oreo and Cookie for their names?? that's what I think about when I see their colors.

Girl: KAbria, Bria for short

Boy: KAbili, Bili for short


Kitten Associates... Providing Southern Comfort for your Lap since 2010!

Good luck, Robin, though I'm sure you're going to do fine :) How about Yin and Yang for the kitten names?

since they are the ones starting your new rescue mission work, how about ADAM & EVE!

Just kidding, I like Ying and Yang! A friend suggested the names from Dr. Suess, which we were called as kids. thing 1 and thing 2.

Good luck, good luck, and take it slow, don't rush it, even though I know that's hard to not try to save all the kittens in need.


...ociates! love it! and love that sam named it. so glad things have gotten better for you guys. hooray!

and that mama is GORGEOUS!!
