Daphne’s Babies are One Month Old!

It’s hard to believe that sometime late on March 6, 2020 or early on March 7, 2020, Daphne had four little kittens.

They’re growing up fast. They’re playing, using the litter box, and getting plenty of socialization from their foster parents.

They did take some time out of their busy schedule to pose for a family portrait.

L-R Dragon, Wyvern, Falkor, Copper (in middle), Daphne.

And, just like many modern-day children, they have their own blog at: https://andinewton.com/journal/?cat=358

They also have their own YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AndiN3D

How the Adoption Process Works While We’re Closed

During this temporary closure, intake will not stop and our volunteers will continue to work diligently to keep the organization running smoothly.

We will keep you up to date with pictures of our available animals on our website, facebook page, and petfinder.

When you find an animal you’re interested in, fill out an application on our site or call 336-574-9600 and leave a message on our adoptions line.

Our adoptions team will screen applications via the telephone and we will connect puppies and kittens with new homes at the safest time possible.

Interested in Fostering?

If you’re interested in fostering puppies or kittens, please fill out a VOLUNTEER application — not an application for the species you’re interested in fostering.

Once you’ve submitted the form, a volunteer will be in contact as soon as possible.

Please bear in mind that young puppies and kittens are fostered in pairs or triplets to allow for proper socialization.

The volunteer interest form is available here: https://www.arfpnc.com/?page_id=462

Gunnar and Sigurd, tuckered out after a busy morning of running around their foster home

While their siblings are off getting spayed and neutered today, Viking kittens Gunnar and Sigurd decided to stay home and run around instead. I’m their foster mom, Andi, and right now we have so many foster kittens in our house that we had to split them into groups for neutering because we can’t fit them all in our car at once! Yeah, kitten season is definitely here in force.

Brunhilde and Ragnar are taking part in today’s excursion to the vet because they’re actually from a different litter and are a little older. Not a lot, but enough that they’re at the top of our snip list. Magnus and Heimdall, who are true littermates with Gunnar and Sigurd, are getting neutered today, too, because they’re already adoption pending. Yay!

Because each kitten has to be in a separate carrier when they go to the spay/neuter clinic and we can only fit four carriers in our car at a time, Gunnar and Sigurd get to stay here at home with Chad and me today. One of the perks of working from home is getting to hang out with our foster cats all day.

Of course, it’s hard to get any work done when you’ve got cuties like these running around. All I want to do is watch them play – which for Sigurd and Gunnar today has meant chasing each other and our one-year-old cat Monet up and down the stairs – and up and down and up and down! – and all over the living room and dining room. Believe it or not, the kittens got tuckered out before Monet did! (Although if you’ve met Monet, that’s not much of a surprise.)

We’ll pick up the rest of the Viking horde from the spay/neuter clinic later today. Kittens bounce back from surgery quickly, especially the boys, so Brunhilde, Ragnar, Sigurd, and Gunnar will all be at the adoption center on Sunday from 1-4 pm.

As for Magnus and Heimdall, they’ll be heading to their new forever home early next week! Did I say yay? Because YAYYYYYY! 😀
