Then & Now

The minions are ten weeks old. They have come a long way. They have grown from tiny helpless newborn kittens into very healthy and strong, smart little cats.  They amaze me, but I am also proud of them. They are little miracles, full of spirit and life. 

Louis, Bindi, Riley, and George at one week old.

Bindi, Riley, Louis and George at ten weeks old.


Bindi is the cheerleader. She is very sweet and eager to be 
part of any activity. She is fearless and very creative.
Bindi is both a princess and a class clown. 
She loves to play, cuddle, and purr.


George is reserved and sensitive. He will let others
have their way, and then decide what he wants to do.
Never demanding or pushy, George is a gentleman.
He loves to cuddle, but is always ready to play, too. 


Louis is a sweet guy. He can be very silly, too.
He especially loves to have his tummy rubbed. 
Louis likes to get attention in any way that he can.
He is very animated. His charms are hard to resist.


Riley loves to be the centre of attention.
He is a quick thinker and filled with mischief. 
Riley puts his full effort into everything he does, 
whether it is eating, playing or cuddling. 

The minions are ready to go out into the world. They will be leaving us today to join other families. I have taught them all of the basics. We have given them a healthy start and a firm foundation. They are ready to become part of a "forever" home*. 

This is the very hardest part of rescue: letting go. It is truly bittersweet for me, but it is time.
We wish them all of the love & care that they absolutely deserve. 

I was privileged to be part of their journey and blessed for them to be a part of mine. I love them dearly.
Godspeed, Minions.

*One of the minions is already "Home"Can you guess who? 


  1. Beautiful fellows..with beautiful names!! God bless you for all the good work, Annie! :)

  2. You've adopted one???? Or someone already has? Don't keep us in suspense!

    Lots of purrs and purrayers to all the others, for wonderful forever homes!

  3. You've done a beautiful job with them! our two are plenty big enough for vetting and going to a new home, but since they came to us with ringworm, we have to make sure they are totally clear first, and that takes a long, long time.

  4. I'm guessing George has been adopted.

  5. I wish them all the love they deserve. Bless them. Deb

  6. You are such a special one and they will love you forever for the care you've given them.

  7. I love them, too, and pray they will always live safe inside lives and be much loved!

  8. Riley or George. I want to thank you for all the hard hard hard work you have put in for these precious babies and you love and care. Thank you. VERY much.

  9. I would say Bindi is already home. You sure did a super job and they have flourished under your care. You area great mom. I hope that they all will be happy in their new home. May they all live a long a, happy and healthy life.

  10. Good job! And by the tone of your comments I'm guessing Louis.

  11. They are beautiful and you are wonderful. It takes a special heart to rescue and then release.

  12. You are wonderful. Those sweet babies are so happy and healthy!

  13. We suspect that Bindi has already gone to her new home. Annie, we sure are going to miss seeing these most precious bundles of fur. Thank you for raising them so they can have a wonderful life in forever homes. I know how super hard it must be to let them go.Thanks for sharing the Minions with us. Sending all my love and hugs, Janet

  14. God bless you for taking such good care of them. I am sure they will all be loved wherever they go.

  15. The Minions are so beautiful, McGuffy Ann. THANK YOU for fostering them, and getting them ready to find their forever homes. We love you, and are so grateful for you!

  16. They are adorable. Good luck to all of them...we purr they find wonderful homes.

  17. They all sound like such wonderful kittens. Congratulations on giving them all a fantastic start and the opportunity to find their perfect forever home.
    I'm going to guess Bindi found a home, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was cuddlebug George.

  18. Hi Annie,
    I love the names you have given the kittens.
    They are all cute as a button - what an adorable bunch!
    Have a Beautiful Week!
    Peace :)

  19. Awww, know they will all do well, they got a great start in life with you.
    I think Bindi is already "home"... :)

  20. I'm guessing Riley or maybe Louis- they both such adorable faces.
    Have a great week!

  21. Wow they certainly have grown. - It makes me sad though to think they'll not be shown here on the blog once they go to "fur-ever" homes. - I think Bindi went first, she's just so adorable looking. Well they all are for that matter.

  22. My girls are voting that Riley is now your newest sweet fur baby!! as soon as I read "mischief" they were like "we want that one!!" LOL
    but they are all so cute I don't think I could let any of them go!
