This is our post to share the graduation photos of the Coffee Cats, but there's an abnormal amount of mews we'd like to relate ahead of that. Please feel free to scroll through if you're only here for the photos!
We all knew the Coffee Cats were latecomers who wouldn't be here long - but we certainly didn't expect to fall in love as quickly as we have! As you know, they came here from some other On Angels' Wings fosters, who couldn't keep them until they were fully ready to adopt. They sure did a great job of getting them off to a wonderful start, though - they're fantastic kittens! And there's no doubt in our minds that their mom, Star, is the finest momcat we've had to date.
Even better news; all the Coffee Cats have at least potential adopters! Star and Mocha will be adopted together, on Saturday, and at the moment, we're told that Caramel will be picked up this weekend as well. Latte, Bean, and Frappe will probably return to the Academy for the week, and meet their adopters next weekend.
The plan here at the Academy is to move Angel and her Fish to the main room on Saturday, then whichever Coffee Cats remain will have the Annex as their homebase - but be generally allowed access to the entire Academy grounds. They'll likely only be confined to the Annex at night.
Please note that due to timing issues, this weekend's mailbag segment has been moved to Sunday, at the usual time: 10:00 KATZ. As always, if you can't join us live for the segment, it will be on YouTube for later viewing.
We're told that Arial has an approved adopter, but that Velvet is still at On Angels' Wings, waiting for the right applicant. Momcats at OAW get to roam the thrift store and we're told Velvet is having a good time with her new friends. Nonetheless, if you have any intention of adopting any Kitten Academy momcat or kitten now or ever, put in your application today!
We would like to take an extra moment, and thank all of you for making Kitten Academy a huge success!
We're very near our one-year anniversary (depending on how you measure, it's roughly March 20th [Hazel's arrival], April 20th [Start of the Livestream], or May 20th [Creation of kitten.academy]).
Our primary goal has been to help get Academy graduates adopted, and we think we can say that goal is achieved -- and how! Some of the Fish had adopters within days of being born! You are wonderful - but we frankly cannot tell you how wonderful. There are no words - this is unprecedented. We think, not only for us -- but also worldwide. If anyone knows of a more successful adoption of fostered kittens rescued from local shelters, we'd love to know about it (and what they did right!)
Of course, that's not our only goal anymore. We aim to help get ALL kittens everywhere adopted, and also to help with care and feeding of cats and kittens that might not otherwise get the best of everything. With your help we've made amazing progress on those goals as well. We talked about this a little in our most recent Patreon live stream, but we'll be sure to cover it in more depth in a mewspaper article, soon!
As usual, here's all the other photos from our recent shoots. Unusually, not all of these are Coffee Cats!
