Hello everyone! We'd like to open this Mewspaper entry by expressing our sincere appreciation for all of you! You are over 5,000 Twitterers, nearly 200,000 YouTubers, almost 500 Patreons, and almost 3,500 Facebookers! The outpouring of love and support for the kittens and the live stream are nothing short of amazing. You are surely the best people in the world!
And speaking of numbers, Charlie's adopter set up a Twitter account to share photos of him (which you can find by clicking here) and roughly 1500 of you had followed it within the first twelve hours! The mind boggles!
The Fonts are scheduled for Graduation (spay/neuter/etc) on the 16th! They will return here to recover for a couple of days, and then go to their adopters. In a Kitten Academy first (but hopefully not last) all four of the Font kittens have been adopted already! Gary and Winnie will be living together in their forever home, and likewise, Baskerville and Zapf will be sharing their adventures post-graduation. While there's at least one or two applications in for Arial, nothing is certain for her quite yet. If you're interested in Arial, who is a perfect and affectionate cat for a quiet home with no other animals, please apply via On Angels' Wings in Crystal Lake.
On the subject of adoptions, we're told that Velvet is in a similar position currently - there are a couple of potential applications, but nothing certain yet.
We don't have a new momcat or kittens lined up for after the Fonts' graduation yet, but we'll be sure to let you know when we do! We plan to have the main room empty for at least a couple of days, so we can properly clean and sterilize it. During that time, we'll have extra focus on the Angel Fish. Probably shortly thereafter, we'll be ready to announce the next class!
The new mailbag segments on Saturday mornings at 10:00 KATZ have been a huge success. Thank you all so much for contributing. I hope they are as fun for you as they are for us! And the donations have been so vast in number that we've had to share some of the overflow with other fosters at OAW. Someday, perhaps, we'll even need to share with other fosters at other shelters!
We've sadly been too busy here at the Academy to produce any of our special videos - and of course, a contributing factor is the continued absence of our best camera. We hope to be able to make some soon! Also, we're constantly a little behind in responding to e-mail, but we love hearing from you. We'll get caught up!
All right - we have a whole bunch of photos that we hadn't yet shared with you, which are at the end of this post. But first! The "Kitten Academy Fans" on Twitter have put together a yearbook for us, which is really wonderful, and must be seen! The photos are below, after the Yearbook.
That is amazing! Thanks to Ellie and Bates! And thanks for letting us share it here!
Here's the promised photos!
