RAMONA: Quimby - 1st born - no collar; Huggins - Yellow Collar; Ribsy - Blue Collar; Beezus - Green collar
UPDATE APRIL 19: Rula surprised us by having three kittens earlier than we were anticipating: Firstborn - black boy, 2nd - Tortie girl, 3rd - Black girl. Rula's maternal instincts are not as strong as we would like, so the most important thing at this time is for us to allow her undisturbed time to bond with her kittens. That means we are monitoring all three mamas and both litters of kittens using the webcams, and will keep visits as short and quiet as possible over the next few days (despite my unfortunate talent for tripping over things in the loudest way possible). So far, everyone appears to be doing ok. It's not an ideal situation, but rescuing ferals rarely is! The key for us has been to adjust to each individual situation as it unfolds, and do the best we can to help each mom care for her kittens in the way that works best for her.
UPDATE APRIL 18: We lost The Little Prince (a.k.a. Purple) this morning due to Fading Kitten Syndrome, which encompasses a variety of issues that are not survivable. We did everything in our power to help him fight, but he was not destined to stay with us. Our hearts always break when we lose one, and we hope his short life will inspire you to be advocates for spaying and neutering.
UPDATE APRIL 17, 7:45pm: Ramona's milk has not fully come in yet, so I am supplementing the kittens (bottle feeding) until it (hopefully) does. The kitten with the purple collar is not as feisty as the others, but he did very well with the bottle so I am hoping he was just hungry.
UPDATE APRIL 17, 2:50pm: Ramona gave birth to five kittens today, I believe we have four boys and one girl, but that might change... ;)
Chloe, Rula and Ramona are pregnant ferals about to give birth for the last time. They come from a colony of more than 230 feral cats, where 90% have been spayed/neutered thanks to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts. Meet their colony: http://TinyKittens.com/happyforest
UPDATE APRIL 3, 2018: A third pregnant feral named Rula has joined our feral caternity ward. She is also from the Happy Forest. Rula is black with a subtle white locket, white belly spot and white hairs on her scruff.
UPDATE APRIL 2, 2018: Gwen "accidentally" trapped a pregnant feral cat, so we are going to see how she does sharing a room with Chloe. Chloe (ginger + white) and Ramona (pure black) are from the same colony, so it is likely they know each other.
Chloe, Rula and Ramona will be part of our new project to map the DNA of her feral cat colony. http://tinykittens.com/dna
Chloe is a feral cat who was trapped on March 23, 2018 because she appeared to be pregnant. Our intake exam revealed she is also in need of dental surgery and has indications of renal disease. She will have her last litter of kittens in safety and then mom and kittens will all be spayed/neutered, and adopted into loving homes.
Chloe comes from a colony that started with more than 230 feral cats. We have done Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) on 90% of this colony, and have socialized and adopted more than 100 cats and kittens. We provide daily feeding and care to the remaining cats as we continue to socialize and adopt out any willing cats. More at http://tinykittens.com/happyforest

UNCENSORED RESCUE REALITY
This is uncensored rescue reality TV - we give the best care we possibly can, but sometimes we have sick cats/kittens, poo, live births, and any number of other things.
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.
Thank mew so much to everyone who is watching!
