Ocean’s Story

When I first started blogging, I told you all about me. I’ve also told you Echo’s story, but I have never told you how Ocean came to live with us. Actually, he came before me but we are all together now!

101314_9 Ocean's Story - Another Lucky RescueOcean’s story starts in July of 2009. A young couple was driving down the street when they saw what they initially thought was a piece of paper blowing across the road. Pretty quickly, they realized it was a tiny white kitten! They got out of their car and scooped it up. They took it home and even got it a cute little blue collar. The couple named him Ocean for his blue eyes.

Mom never got the full story of why they didn’t keep this kitten but they contacted the rescue mom was volunteering for and turned the kitten over to them. The rescue contacted mom to see if she could take on this kitten and, of course, she said yes. She had been working with Echo, her first foster, for a week and thought a companion for him would be a good thing.

Ocean was pretty tiny, probably six weeks old or so, when he came to live with mom on July 11th. He and Echo immediately became best friends, doing everything together.

As other foster kitties came along, like Earl Gray, they let them join in but none were ever as close to them as they were to each other.

I came to the house at the same time as Earl Gray, in September. Ocean and I got along great as kittens but he and Echo pick on me now.

As Ocean grew older, he loved all the kittens that came through the house. He would gently play with them, lick them until they fell asleep, then groom himself.

In the next photo, mom is trying to get him to pose and he is getting ready to swat her hand away. He never puts out his claws but he doesn’t hesitate to make his feelings known.


Even though my brothers try to push me around once in a while, I still love them! I am so happy that we all have our forever home and think often about the kitties who don’t. If you ever want to add a kitty to your family, please adopt one from your local rescue or shelter. You will save a life!

Have a happy day!

    Your Mom is so wonderful to foster and then have given you all a loving home. I think foster fails make some of the best kitties, my Kaspars is one and he is one of the most loving and protective cats I’ve ever met. I adore Ocean and Echo’s special bond and photos loving one another. Even though you and Ocean are not kitty related, you look like you could be litter mates! You and your fur sibs are beautiful and obviously well loved,

    Ocean sounds like he made his home very quickly with you 🙂 of course I myself am the proud mum to foster fails 🙂 very hard with some to say goodbye and they end up being much loved adopted kitties…When Dinnerminzt was my foster she too became firm friends with our Pickles (my rescue I found in a hoarding house) and by the 3rd time Dinnermintz came to foster with me (flu that kept going round the iso ward of my vol shelter) she greeted Pickles as an old friend and went straight to the water bowl…she was then ‘family’ Cleo was a foster my daughter adopted but she lived in a super busy city and after a bust up with her then boyfriend I took Cleo in with us..Marbles was dumped as a kitten and being fed dope and gravy by some stupid people in town…we wrangled her to us and voila 🙂 I love that Ocean has a wonderful life with you all 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx
