Martin and Taylor (Unrelated Orphan Ferals) Accepting Adoption Applications

Martin, an orange tabby, was found alone in a yard in Kershaw, SC. His umbilical was still attached, and he weighed 95 grams, which made him about three days old. He came to me on September 10, 2023, so we will call his birthday September 8.

Martin’s mom did a great job to that point because he was perfectly clean and stout. We gave him the name Martin because when my husband saw him, he said, “He’s the same color as my Martin guitar.” Although my husband may object, the adopter is always welcome to change the name, but for fostering purposes, and to keep peace in the family, for now, he is Martin.

Taylor is a gorgeous white kitten who came to me the day after we took in Martin. And, yes, Taylor is another well-known and popular guitar brand – and, yes, my husband who helps out a lot with the fostering also named this kitten. I pick my battles.

We don’t know much about Taylor’s story other than she was a single orphan dropped off at the Lancaster Animal Shelter on September 11, 2023. But she also was healthy and sturdy. Although she weighed only 90 grams at intake, and was probably 2-3 days old, she immediately took a bottle, making my job much easier. I certainly appreciate newborns who are enthusiastic bottle feeders. To keep it simple, we’ll call Taylor’s birthday September 8 as well.
