PLEASE NOTE: THE KITTENS ARE IN THE VERY LARGE CAGE AT NIGHT FOR THEIR SAFETY, AND DURING THE DAY THEY HAVE FULL ACCESS TO THE SHOP, SO AREN’T ALWAYS WITHIN CAMERA RANGE.
The cam will usually be muted when people are here unless we are directly interacting on cam with the kitties.
We are located in Ontario, Oregon, USA. We do not have space for a dedicated kitten room, so we have set up a large cage in the back of my quilt store. There are too many things in my retail space to allow them to be loose and unsupervised overnight. During the day, we do allow them full roam of the shop, so they may not necessarily be within the range of the cam. I dream of one day having a big gaming computer for easier streaming and enough cameras to cover the whole shop, but that is a much bigger expense than I can currently afford.
Luna was waiting for us on our porch when we got home from work on July 8, 2020. We are sweetening her up for her future furever home. If we don’t have a furever home lined up for her by the time she is ready for her Spa(y) Day, we will probably send her to Simply Cats in Boise.
We have seen Granite (grey tabby and white) and her sister, Caramel (calico), in the feral colony that we feed at our house since mid-July 2018. We rescued them in early October 2018. They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.
Caramel is a Special Needs kitty. She has spent two 48-hour stints in an oxygen kennel at WestVet Animal Hospital in Boise, Idaho. So far, we don’t have a firm diagnosis of her respiratory issue. She will require a special adoptive family with both a large heart and a large wallet due to her likely needing continuing medical care for her respiratory problems.
Granite is a very shy kitty. The first six months she was here, she would run and hide in the back storeroom any time any customers came into the shop. She still is not a fan of being picked up and hugged. She will require a special adoptive family who will understand that she will probably regress socially when first adopted and who won’t try to force her to socialize. She will probably be an “invisible kitty” the first several months in her adoptive home, and over time, as she becomes more adjusted, she will very slowly make herself available for pets.
Due to these circumstances, Granite and Caramel are our “Resident Fosters.” We would love to adopt them out to a family where they wouldn’t have to sleep in a cage, but we expect them to be long-term Shop Kitties.

DISCLAIMER: GIFTS OF MONEY AND SUPPLIES SENT DIRECTLY TO QUILTED KITTEN FOSTERS ARE NOT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE, AS WE ARE NOT YET A REGISTERED NON-PROFIT.
We have no intention of profiting from fostering kitties. Fostering is expensive. We know that kitty cam viewers are generous and like to help support the kitties they watch. If there is ever a positive balance on the spreadsheet, it is because we would like to have an emergency fund for the kitties and/or we are saving up for improved streaming tech.

Chat Rules & Explanations: https://goo.gl/p2XaAg
1. Don’t ask for subscriptions (the only exception is for other Kitty Cams), don’t spam, enjoy the kittens, have a nice day.
2. Try not to curse unnecessarily. We are probably rated PG-13, as I sometimes have a bit of a potty mouth when something frustrates me. Blame that on 14 years in the Army, where cursing is an art form.
3. Harassing a moderator in chat is grounds for a timeout or ban at the moderator’s discretion.
4. Harassing a moderator outside of chat is grounds for banning and the sharing of your info to other cams for them to ban you as well.
Be advised that this is REAL LIFE, uncensored. You will experience most of the fostering experience which will include sick kittens. And poop. Hopefully, it’ll be in the litter box.
Concerning Trolls: Ignore them. That’s what they hate the most. Their goal is to upset you so you yell at them. They think this is funny. Do nothing to acknowledge their existence.
