Waterfall



















Waterfall was found abandoned, on the streets almost ready to deliver her babies. The kind people who found her asked a local rescue center, Hope for Life, to help Waterfall. Hope for Life took Waterfall into their care on Tuesday April 10th, I (volunteer at Hope for Life) took her home to foster her on Thursday, and Waterfall had 5 beautiful kittens on Sunday April 15th. Hope for Life Center (in Virginia Beach, VA) is a wonderful, bright, cheerful facility where all of the mom's with kittens have their own private glassed in room. Unfortunately, when Waterfall came to the center, the center was full, there was not a private room for Waterfall. It was my fortune that the center was full and I could (take her home to) care for Waterfall during her delivery and the following weeks while her kittens were so little. Waterfall is the best mom and the best cat companion. She loves all people and she did great with my cats (who loved to check in on her when it was time for her to get her canned food!!!). Waterfall is the best girl. I will miss Waterfall when she returns to Hope for Life. Waterfall and her kittens (named Wings, Wobbles, Whisper, Wiglett, Winky) are available for adoption at Hope Center. -Darcy

How sweet are they?! Darcy, you truly are wonder woman! How is Zebby with Waterfall? He was always so a caring kitty when he was a Kat's house, I can just imagine what he's like with this Momma kitty!

Waterfall is so beautiful and those pudgy little babies just made me melt!

Such a gorgeous mom-kitty, and what a sweet little family! How wonderful to be able to foster them. I sure hope they all get great forever homes.

Waterfall is such a cutey and beautiful as well. Darcy says she is doing well, has had her spay and is happy and healthy waiting to be adopted at Hope for Life. And two out of the five kittens have been adopted so far.

Lol! I was just laughing at Emma's nose picture I just added to the slider. She looks alienish or something! Sorry Emma, I love you and mommmy's just teasin'.

Mom would take them all in, if dad would let her. They are the cutest.

Darcy, you are a neat person to help out with Waterfall and her very cute kittens. I am sure they will find their forever homes. That one of Mum and the kitten is precious. God Bless you.
