This is awesome.
Especially since the goal is adoption and people will have a hard time picking the kitten they want.

DH and I are often called on to treat the ringworm cases since we know how to deal with it. We use gloves and keep them in a big cage in a spare bedroom to prevent it from spreading to us or our cats. While ringworm is a pain to deal with, I don't think it should result in euthanasia. Many, many cats and dogs get this and it's not a serious condition for people or pets. The kittens enthusiastically agree with this statement

They will be examined and tested by the shelter's vet prior to adoption. Not cool to adopt these kittens into families, particularly if they have kids, unless we're sure it's all cleared up. These kittens will go fast. They're kinda plain looking but are gentle, friendly and full of personality. Plus there aren't that many kittens this time of year. They even purred when I dipped them in the smelly ringworm treatment solution!
Yes, hats off to you, Purron!

There is a retired lady in our community who is called the "cat lady." She has 30+ cat cages, and goes to ranches/farms, catches the feral cats - all in one fell swoop - then helps to take them to the spay/neuter clinic. I just love that lady...she treats the most ragged of the kitties with care and respect.

Thanks antmary. I just foster a few kittens at a time and devote most of my energy into serving as a board member for our charity plus helping educate the community. Think it's important to promote spay/neuter and other things to keep the homeless animal population in check and promote responsible pet ownership. Sure do respect the efforts of folks like the "cat lady"

The young wife took a look at the picture, and she says:

Isaac - the black one
Tobey - the grey one
Duncan - one in front
Todd - other one in front
