My New Cat Rowan! (pic heavy)

My first cat! She is finally here!! Rowan is a female cat I believe no more than a year old who had a litter of 7 kittens, (brown tabbys, like her color and grey tabby kittens, like dad's color). She was from a military family who had to travel and her and her sister were dropped off at the shelter. I don't know how she became pregnant, but she came to the vet's office where I work to stay during her pregnancy and give birth. She was called Chica at the vet's but I didn't like the name for some reason. An interesting coincidence is that one of the receptionists went to the shelter one day and adopted a female cat and it turned out to be Rowan's sister! Apperantly her sister have the same sweet as can be personality. The runt of Rowan's litter eventually passed away and soon she started to foster 2 small black Tortie kittens that a lady couldn't care for anymore and were a bit smaller than her own kittens. She took to them right away like she gave birth to them herself.

Yesterday, my work was talking about how it was time to start finally finishing weaning the kittens and drying up mom so she could be spayed and the kittens could be fixed and start going to their new homes. The best way to do that would be to separate mom from babies so kittens would eat strictly solid foods and so mom's hormones would start to slow milk production due to lack of kittens suckling and not having the stimuli of them to make her hormones work like a momma cat's hormones. So until she is dried up and is ready to get spayed she is home with me! So exciting!!!!

Anyways, here are Pics of the little gal. Oh! SHe also met Emmy, and was unruffled and not really scared of her, but was wary cus Emmy was acting like an idiot as usual , but Emmy did pretty well for the most part and mostly listened and licked the cat multiple times :)
