Smartie, Foster Mum’s spider monkey kitten has been adopted since 19 Sep 09. She is now the younger by 5 months, with an older ginger brother who’s 7 months old. She has oodles of energy and even her elder brother is having a bit of a struggle keeping up with her.
Her mother is expecting to add a biped baby to the mix pretty soon. With each other for company and the adaptability of kittens, she and her brother should take the new addition well, especially with a bit of prepping by her mother.
Here are the photos and vids of her farewell wrestle with btmao and the incredible plastic insect monster

If you are also an expectant mother with pets or planning to get pregnant, here are some good references on pets and children. With Timmi‘s case as an example, it is something simple, but not to be overlooked. After all, it is a big change in the family life and routines, and whether human or otherwise, all in the family are affected by it
Tiny Smartie is a female black and white kitten with a cute little zigzag tail.
Cuddle me! No gap too big for me to close!
Bright-eyed and healthy, she’s got GUMPTION to spare. Just about a month old, she’s barely mastered her wobbly limbs. But already she’s reaching for vertical horizons like she’s got spider and monkey in her blood.
Are you the one for me?
Small in size, this little cat is big on heart and love. She is supremely friendly, affectionate and vocal.
She craves attention so much she will literally go out on a limb for it. So her adopter must be willing to go out on a limb for her too.
Smartie’s adopter must also be able to care for her and be there for her, especially during these crucial months of her physical and mental development.
Her adopter must also commit to sterilize her when she reaches 6 months of age.

Lovely Beverly has passed over the rainbow bridge in Sep/Oct. She will, of course, be longer homeseeking.
Bonnie, whom Foster Mum calls Yo Yo, will become a permanent resident at the cattery. This is because, with time, her character shows her to be in need of a garden to roam in.
She also does not bond easily with people, though she is very attached to Foster Mum and her helpers. She is one cat who will definitely need extra time and attention to adapt. So Foster Mum has decided to keep her.

Great news, Bunny has gone home to a nice couple from the UK.
Maybe some of Anita’s luck has rubbed off on her. Her adoption profile was barely up when when the enquiry came in, and the couple visited the same weekend and there she goes!
We’re just absolutely happy for this sweety who would probably face a prolonged silent run on the board otherwise. Her new parents are shocked to learn that black cats often languish on the board, and were in fact anxious that she might be adopted out before they got a chance to meet her.
As they are from the UK where it is common to allow pet cats to free-range, one of the conditions for adoption was that she continue to be kept as a strictly indoors-only cat when they return home. This is because Bunny is young, totally trusting and is not street-smart at all.
This beautiful X entered the cattery at the same time as Bunny, and like Bunny, she was to be put up for adoption. We named her Anita, but as it turns out, she was adopted even before her adoption run was started.
Despite being very reserved, Anita was literally snapped up. Bunny, with her bubbly and affectionate character, meanwhile may have less chances of adoption just because she’s black. We hope some of Anita’s good fortune will rub off on Bunny.
Even though Anita doesn’t need help with homeseeking, I still feel the need to put up a post on her because the first time we met, she literally broke our hearts… we heard her before we saw her in her cage. And she sounded exactly like Kheilly, who’s been gone for slightly more than 1 year now. I nearly asked to take Anita just because of that, because we miss him so badly.
