The Eclipse Litter (Orphan Ferals) Adopted

April 4, 2024: We were near the end of the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments when we got a call from the Lancaster Animal Shelter that Animal Control had just dropped off five newborn orphan siblings. We do not know their background, but they are enough for a Starting Five, which is what we were originally going to name the litter. However, the eclipse was coming (April 8) so we are calling them the Eclipse Litter.

They looked like they were 7-10 days old with all weights under but approaching 200 grams. We have three orange tabbies (statistically all males) named Sol, Astro, and Cosmo. One is a tortie (statistically female), and one gray tabby (appears to be female). We are naming the girls Aura and Luna.

April 17, 2024 Update: Upon further review, Astro is now Astra.

April 23, 2024 Update: Aura and Sol are adopted together. Astra and Luna are adopted together with Bomb Squad Whitley. Cosmo is adopted to join an older cat who needs a friend.

The Bomb Squad 3 and the Eclipse 5 are napping together.
