Sebastian Saturday: My Foster Kitten in His New Forever Home!

We're continuing our transport from Thursday today, but my foster kitten Sebastian got to his new forever mommy already and I have the cutest picture to share of them!

I also have a silly video of him while he was here with me still and some cute pictures from then too!

He went to such a great home, and it makes me so happy that this super sweet boy got such a great place to live and be loved!

First off, the best picture ever... Here is Sebastian with his new mom, Michele C. when she first got him!

Sebastian getting a welcome home smooch from his new mom, Michele!
Now check out what a silly water drinker this boy is! I had wondered why his water bowl was always spilled, and I just assumed it was a favorite game for him to knock it around.

And then I finally caught him drinking water. Check out how he dances in front of the bowl! And how he dunks his face and then licks it off himself instead of drinking from the bowl. Isn't he ridiculous?!

Here's his face after he's done drinking water. What a stylish water beard!

Um, you have some more to drink there, buddy!
And one more... He's such a snuggler. Here he is telling me he was done with the smooches! How could anyone stop smooching that cutie face though!?

No more smooches, lady!

Transport Day: Foster Kitty Sebastian and 8 Other Kitties Going Home! #9catcaravan

It's transport day again, Cuteheads! What a great way to kick off the new year!

It's also a very special transport because my foster kitten, Sebastian, is on board! He has been the cutest little bundle of joy in my bathroom for the past couple weeks and I'm going to miss him for sure, but he is going to the BEST mom and I know she'll keep us all updated with pictures and stuff! So that's wonderful!

The kitties are heading from Florida to Virginia today with Cutehead Michele C. (who is also Sebastian's new mom!) and they'll stay at her house tonight and tomorrow night. Then they get up bright and early on Saturday and do the rest of their trip!

So let's meet the lucky kitties that our Cute Transport Network is driving, shall we?


Sebastian in my lap. I'm going to miss this boy!
Oh, Sebastian. This little nugget came at just the right time for me and his new mom. She just lost her kitty the day after we lost Sweet Pea, and so he is truly a gift to cheer us both up and help us heal! He definitely did his part for me while he's been here, and now he gets to do the same for her starting tomorrow. He is going to live in Virginia Beach.

Sebastian was saved from Broward Animal Control. He was the last of his litter and terrified in the shelter. Now he's an absolute lovebug though, who likes to give kisses, cuddle in your lap and purr like crazy. He also likes to "herd" all his toys into his bed and sleep with them. So cute!

Captain Jack the Pirate Cat

Captain Jack, talking... as usual.
Captain Jack is 16 years old, has only one eye and is deaf. His owner died, and so he ended up at the shelter. Lucky for him though, Safehollow rescue in Georgia stepped up and said they would take him!

Captain Jack has been living with his foster dad, Cutehead Kyle S., for about a month now, and today is his big day! Captain Jack meows a lot. And loud. Like, really loud. Maybe because he can't hear himself? He also purrs really loud and is just a super sweet kitty!

Captain Black

Captain Black at foster Emily O.'s house. 
Yup, two Captains! This kitty was just named "Captain" at the shelter, but since we already had a Captain, I decided he should be Captain Black so we can tell them apart.

Captain Black was a shelter favorite and they begged us to help him get out. He's a huge love, but just has a couple small issues. He needs to eat special food because he has urinary tract issues and he walks like a little bit of a funny walk due to an old injury (he's not in any pain, just walks with swagger). He is also going to Safehollow where they will find him the best and most perfect new home!


The picture that made us all fall in love with cross-eyed George.
One look at cross-eyed George and we just knew we had to help save him. Several people expressed interest in him, and Cutehead Maryann G. is the lucky one who is going to be his new mom!

George has been with Cutehead Carie P. and her family as their foster for a few weeks, and he is a great cat! He is super friendly and super cute -- and his new mom is going to super love him!


The princess. 
Princess Pansy Rose is heading up to Boston to a wonderful home with Cutehead Laura F.! She was originally Peaches, but her new name fits her much better. She is an adorable (and rare) female ginger kitty, who has been absolutely spoiled in her foster home with Cutehead Melissa F. for the past few weeks.

Laura had actually first seen George's picture and commented that if he was a female, she would love him. One of our volunteers remembered seeing a female ginger at the shelter, and posted her picture on that thread... and the rest is history! She is going to live a great life in Boston.


Beautiful Audrey!
Audrey was saved from West Palm Animal Control. She was being fostered by a lovely woman named Fredrika M., and when it was time for her to go back to the shelter to get adopted, Fredrika just couldn't bear the thought of her being there, so she reached out and found her a home with Cutehead Azar A. in Virginia!

Audrey is a very pretty girl and I'm so glad we could help her get home also!


Bernadette snuggled up.
Bernadette is a kitty we were going to transport before, but it didn't end up working out back then. But this weekend is her lucky weekend!

She is a diabetic kitty and is going to HART of Maine shelter in Maine (one of our favorite partners!). We're picking her up in New York and helping her get there!

Thelma and Louise

Thelma and Louise
Thelma and Louise (formerly Lizzie and Torrie) are from Virginia and needed to find a new home. The are gorgeous, aren't they?

Lucky for them, Toni S. in New Jersey saw their story and stepped up to be their real forever home, and we're going to give them a ride to her!

2013 Wrap-Up: It Was a Very Cute Year!

As we look forward to 2014 and all the wonderful things to come, let's take a look at all the amazing and fabulous things we did together in 2013. I have to say, 2013 was a very "Cute" year!

We had lots of fun accomplishments, good deeds, silly stories and milestones this year. In no particular order, here are just a few!

--Moo claimed his not-box back in May and it's still on the floor in my bedroom all these months later.

--After doing lots of kitty transports, we officially launched "Cute Transport Network" and gave our fabulous Cutehead drivers an official group name!

--Together with our partner in rescue, Good Karma Pet Rescue, we rescued, transported and helped save 210 cats total in 2013. Two hundred and ten lives saved!

--As of today, we have 638 Cutehead volunteer drivers from all over the country in our database! (Want to be one, sign up here.)

--Sweet Pea got out of the parking lot, flew to Pittsburgh and back to Florida, stayed at my house and made her case and looked cute until I finally caved in and called her mine, and then left us way too soon.

--We also said goodbye to a couple other parking lot kitties: Orange Guy and Stitch.

--Foster kitty Sebastian swooped in to cheer us all up with his adorable kitten cuteness and lovableness!

--We helped re-rescue and transport seven gorgeous cats from a hoarding situation.

--We celebrated our 2,000th post on Your Daily Cute (and my birthday!) back in April.

--Then in August, we celebrated Your Daily Cute's 5th anniversary. Five years of Cute!

--We lost an absolutely amazing cat, our boy Lestat, who was one of my favorite transport kitties ever.

--I went to the Alley Cat Allies national convention and BlogPaws pet blogging conference.

--Pimp turned 14 years old (and took the most amazing birthday pictures)!

--We had a super fantastic Santa Paws Drive. It was our 5th year doing it, and we raised nearly $8,000 in cash donations, 1,323 dog and cat toys and 106 bags of treats to help bring shelter animals holiday cheer for Christmas!

All in all, I say this was a fabulous year! Thank you to every single one of you for helping making this the Cutest year ever!

Happy New Year, Cuteheads!

Fluffy Cat Headbutts the Camera

Gatto the cat likes to headbutt the camera.

It's almost like he's headbutting us, isn't it? I kind of want to put my forehead on the computer screen to meet him! That's our natural reaction to a cat coming at us with his head like that, right?
