Today, Animal Outreach Society of McHenry brought us a beautiful new momcat to care for until she has her kittens - and then to care for them all until the kittens can be adopted.
She was rescued after her family abandoned all their cats when their house was foreclosed. One of her sisters was also pregnant and ended up giving birth at the vet today while they were getting screened! We expect our momcat to deliver any day now.
The new momcat doesn't have a name yet -- at least, not one we know! DJ is the one responsible for naming all the cats, but if you have a suggestion, you can tweet it to her twitter, @djkittenacademy.
We've moved our ceiling camera to the annex, so we can all keep an eye on our new arrival. If we're lucky, perhaps she'll even deliver on the live stream!
Here's a video of her playing with a catnip toy, just after moving in. She's super friendly!
