|Little pregnant Piper on the first night I got her, right before she miscarried her kittens.|
Seeing as we had fostered BeiBei and Gabby and gotten them adopted, most importantly not by us, we felt that we could continue working as fosters. At the time, all of our personal cats were between the ages of 2-10, which made us decide to foster a pregnant cat so we could also foster kittens.
We named the pregnant cat Sandpiper with the intent to call her Piper for short, as well as planning on naming all of her kittens beach names. The date that she was supposed to deliver her kittens was April 4th. I marked it on my Jeresey Shore calendar, and it happened to be the month that Mike 'The Situation' was pictured - thus the title for the blog. I decided to write a record of all the Piper happenings on this blog.
But unfortunately, the night we got Piper, she began to miscarry and deliver her kittens at 3 am in the morning. You can read about Piper's miscarriage here. She had an emergency spay the next day, as there was still a kitten in her uterus.
But Piper settled into life at my household just fine, with a few disagreements with some of the resident cats! Even though this blog was supposed to be a diary of how Piper delivered her kittens and they got adopted, I kept it to channel my productive cat thoughts. Who knew that Sandpiper cat blog would end up with it's own Facebook page you can visit here! I continue to post about cat related matters and such.
So that is the story on how Piper became to be the Lucky #7 cat, and the stories of the next additions to my cat family!
