Fostering Martha




Sometimes fostering one of our kittehs can entail extraordinary measures ... of cuteness. But also of work. Voila Martha, of Minette et trois bebehs, who came to use from Animal Care and Control. Her brothers died of a respiratory illness but Martha survived, thanks to the determination of her fosterparents Olivier and Claire. They have fought over time (see chart) to get teeny tiny Martha up to a healthy weight. She is almost ready to go to her forever home with her forevermom, the patiently waiting Kirsten! So, no, this fluffy cutie is not available for adoption, but we have lots of other cats and kittens who are. Thanks to Claire and Olivier for fostering Martha.

I had the pleasure of meeting Martha a week ago and she is nothing short of magnificent. Lucky Kirsten to be adopting this little darling. But lucky Martha too for having the wonderful care and attention that Claire and Olivier have lavished on her. Their dedication to her - and her family - has been truly fantastic. And lucky Hyde Park Cats to have members like Claire and Olivier. Lucky, lucky, lucky.

She makes me want to lick the computer screen and gobble her up.

We Marthas are small but tough! Thanks to Claire and Olivier for all of their work. Lucky everyone here.

I'm really impressed in your ability to create a system to measure kitten cuteness. Obviously Martha is off-the-charts.

Claire and Olivier, I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and are doing for Martha. She looks more beautiful every time I see her. Bella & I cannot wait to get her home!
