Introducing our final foster kitten, #6 ( #kittensgrowinglikeweeds ) baby goldenrod. . This whiny little mama’s kitten is less adaptable than than the edible weed for which they’re named. Goldenrod grows all year round and all parts of the plant can be eaten. It stores well, and can be used dried, powdered, frozen, pickled or fresh. In short, goldenrod is a wonderful survival food as well as nutritious meal component. . . #orangekitty #orangekitten #fosterkittens #orangetabby #redblanket #cuteface #prettykitty #caturday #cat #cutekittens #fosteringsaveslives

Mama Isabelle is a very attentive and committed mama, even with six babies. Yet she still has time to be quite the love bug. Is she a #dilutetortie a #siamesecat or something else? . #namethebreed #catbreeds #catsoftheday #catsofinstagram #catsoftheday #mothercat #mama #siamese #dilute #beauty #royalty #fostercat #fostercatsofinstagram #fostermama #kittensgrowinglikeweeds

Introducing kitten number 5 of the #kittensgrowinglikeweeds litter, Foxtail. By far the most adventurous kitten, Foxtail was eager to explore the wide world beyond the box. Foxtail looks almost identical to Clover, but with slightly more white markings on their feet. . Foxtails can be a pesky plant (and very dangerous for dogs, where the grains are known to lodge themselves in their noses), and the weed most present in our yard currently. However, once boiled foxtail grains are actually edible if the need arises. . . #foxtail #foxtails #blackandwhite #blackandwhitekitten #kitten #kittenfoster #fosterkittens #adoptdontshop #whiskers #curious #brave #explorer #babykittens #cute #cutekittens

This is Burdock, kitten number 4 of the #kittensgrowinglikeweeds litter. One of the fluffiest of the wee ones, this little kitten is the best at being handled and has been the first to start grooming themselves and their siblings. . Burdocks aren’t just those annoying burrs that get stuck to your clothing (or your dog), but their roots are commonly used in teas, stews, and medicinally. . . . #burdock #burdockroot #kittenfoster #bufftabby #bufftabbykitten #kittens #kittenfoster #thursdaymotivation #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #fosterkittens #fluffy #nourishing #medicinal #grooming #ilovekittens

Nettles is kitten baby number 3 in the #kittensgrowinglikeweeds litter. They’re the runt and still weighs several ounces less than their littermates, but they’re a fighter and we’re working hard to plump them up. . Nettles, although dangerous to touch with bare skin, are used medicinally for skin conditions, muscles/joint pain, and even anemia! . . #nettles #stingingnettle #kittens #runt #runts #kitten #fosteringsaveslives #fosterkittens #adoptdontshop #little #littlebaby #bufftabby #squeal #swoon

Introducing lil babe Dandelion (kitten number 2 in the #kittensgrowinglikeweeds litter). While Dandelion gets the award for messiest kitten, their endless patience and adaptability shines through in their tolerance of daily baths, coming out fluffier after each one. . While given a bad rap for being pesky weeds, all parts of a dandelion are edible. Although bitter, dandelion leaves are full of essential nutrients and make a great addition to any salad. . . #dandelion #edibleweeds #kittens #kittenfoster #kittenoftheday #whitekitten #fluffy #cute #tinykitten #kittylove #edible #nutrituous #garden

Introducing baby Clover. They’re a gentle and inquisitive kitten, and very content until they’re getting bathed and then they scream louder than any of the other kittens. They have identical markings to their sibling, Foxtail, except for 2 more black toes. . Clovers, considered weeds, are actually edible. Red clovers contain calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin c, and more! The leaves, flower, seeds, and roots are all edible. Stay tuned for introductions for the rest of the #kittensgrowinglikeweeds litter. . . #kittensofinstagram #kittenfoster #blackcatsofinstagram #blackkitten #blackandwhitecat #blackandwhitecatsofinstagram #babykittens #clover #edible #nutrition #edibleweeds #kittens #cute #cutekittens #kittenoftheday #wednesdays #wednesdaykitty #oakland
