A 2-year old calico stray and her litter of five kittens were abandoned at a smaller shelter and then transferred to Hennepin County Humane Society. We fostered them from Aug. 13 to Sept. 9, 2011.

Rue at five weeks
Rue is one of the friendliest kittens in the litter. She was a visitor favorite whenever we had friends over to see the kittens. She loved to crawl into a lap and fall asleep on you. She's very cuddly and will make an excellent pet.
Foster kitten room
The litter has plenty of toys to play with in our foster room.
