Tornado Damage

We recently had a tornado that damaged a lot of homes and businesses in a city near us.  Here is a photo (courtesy of KTVI) that shows a satellite picture of some of the damage.  Fortunately no people were killed in this tornado, but some animals were, including one mother cat.  Her four five month old kittens survived, but with their house totally destroyed, the family turned them over to us to find new homes for the kittens.

This is how I came to foster these adorable kittens:
Stormy

Thunder 

Lightning

Raine

I took these pictures within 2 minutes of putting them into their new room, and as you can see, they made themselves right at home.  Thunder, the only boy, is the most active which is why I had such a hard time getting a picture of him.  But you can see him better in this video - he's the one actually playing with the toy while Lightning and Raine are watching.

What great looking kitties. I feel so bad for the Mother cat. I know she is looking down and feeling good that all her babies are safe and with someone who will take good care of them.

How hard on the family to lose their home and their cats. I hope they find new homes quickly.

Ugh. How sad.

Those kittens are so cute though! I love that they each (of the 3 in the video) have different color tails!

Adorable kittens! So nice that the kittens were spared - thank you for all you do! Love the video - they are just too cute.

How awful - those poor people and poor mama cat! The kittens are absolutely precious and look a lot like my 2 foster boys. I'm sure they will find great homes in no time with those Siamese faces. You are such an awesome person for helping all of the critters!
