FOSTER UPDATE from my Human: When I first got Quasi (top) versus now (bottom). She was 1.5 pounds and had a bad cold. Now she's 2.9 pounds and healthy enough to be spayed and adopted! Dropping her off at @bfas_la for the last time today was one of the hardest things ever. I already miss her so much. She had a lot of milestones while she was with me and I'm so proud of her progress. She will be spayed on Tuesday and adoptable starting Wednesday! Please send her positive vibes and love for her surgery and a quick adoption into a loving home. If I get any updates, I will post! If any of YOU are interested in adopting Quasi, please DM me or watch the Best Friends LA website this week for her to be listed. 💜💜💜Scroll to see Quasi being sweet, cozy and sassy! #fosterquasi #fosterkitten #bestfriendsla #allthefeels #catsofinstagram #instacat #instacats #instakitty #meowbox #magnificent_meowdels #srslycute #excellent_cats #cutepetclub #catlover #catlovers #catloversworld #cutecatcrew #petbox #cat_features #instacat_ meows #insta_catshots #spoiledcat #rescuekitty #catsofgram #catlounge #meow_beauties #thedodo #bns_cats #funpetlove #bestcataward

An update on my Human's foster kitty: Little by little, she's growing! She eats like a little 🐷 now which is amazing since she would not eat wet food really at all before. If she can just kick this little cold! (PS.. the one where she's holding my hand looks sweet but it's not. It's a trap and she bites my hand right after she gets it in her paws! Happens every time...) 🤣💜🐱 #fosterquasi #adoptdontshop #bestfriendsla #savethemall #catsofinstagram #instacat #instacats #instakitty #meowbox #magnificent_meowdels #srslycute #excellent_cats #cutepetclub #catlover #catlovers #catloversworld #cutecatcrew #petbox #cat_features #instacat_ meows #insta_catshots #spoiledcat #rescuekitty #catsofgram #catlounge #meow_beauties #thedodo #bns_cats #funpetlove #bestcataward

Los Angeles has a goal to be completely no kill by the end of 2017. The highest risk at the shelters are underage orphan kittens. The youngest ones require a lot of work around the clock that most shelters don't have. Organizations like Best Friends LA and Kitten Rescue LA both have kitten nurseries where they are staffed to house and take care of these underage kittens. All while rescuing at risk kittens from other shelters that cannot accommodate. To help reach the goal of a completely kill free county, they need the community's help. Mainly just fostering underage kittens until they are old enough and big enough (8 weeks and 2 pounds) to be spayed/neutered. At that time, they become adoptable. By fostering a kitten, they become more socialized (which means easier to adopt) and it frees up space in the nursery for more rescues.
That said, my Human wanted to do her part and try fostering! All you need is a bathroom, a small room or a kitty play pen to accommodate them.
This is her very first foster, Quasi. She is about 7 weeks and she just needs to fatten up so she can hit that 2 pound mark. She's underweight and has a little cold. Hopefully in a few weeks she'll be ready to be adopted. I'm not too happy that I've lost bathroom privileges. And I can smell her so it makes me nervous. But my Human just wants to find this orphan a forever home so I guess it's ok. For now... 😳🤷🏻‍♀️💜 Wish us luck! #fosterquasi #catsofinstagram #instacat #instacats #instakitty #meowbox #magnificent_meowdels #srslycute #excellent_cats #cutepetclub #catlover #catlovers #catloversworld #cutecatcrew #petbox #cat_features #instacat_ meows #insta_catshots #spoiledcat #rescuekitty #catsofgram #catlounge #meow_beauties #thedodo #bns_cats #funpetlove #bestcataward
