I believe Haukea came from a transport from southern Illinois. We had her a week or so and she had her babies. She is really sweet girl. She loves to eat. Which is great for a new mama. When she's not eating, she wants you to pet her. But now that she has her babies, she still likes to be petted, but she also goes and takes care of her babies like a good mama.
What does the name Haukea mean?
Haukea is Female and the origin is Hawaiian.
Haukea is an Hawaiian name composed of the elements hau "snow" and kea "white,"
Haukea means "snow white."
Meet Moolicious, Mootastic and Mini-Moo!
These 3 little ones came from CACC last week. They were very hungry and underfed for some time. We immediately started feeding them every 3 hours and in even just one day, they were no longer crying. They had full bellies and were determined to grow up into awesome kitties. It's seems they get bigger every day, and indeed they are gaining weight every day. They appear to be healthy and in a few days will go and meet Haukea as their new mama and see if she will feed them and clean them up. They will also have other kittens to learn things from. They all are very nice kittens who love to snuggle with you when holding them. After almost two weeks of tube feeding, we're really hoping Haukea will take them in as hers and help them, and us, out.
What do the moo names mean?
Well, if you can't figure this out, find someone to explain it to you!
Meet Beset, Befuddled, Bereft and Bacon & Eggs
The 5 pack consists of 5 kittens from two litters. The two are Bacon & Eggs. The three are B, B and B. They all arrived together on the same day so I'm keeping them together as a group. Well looks like we only have 1 B kitten, Beset left. Bacon and Eggs are getting healthy again finally! So all these little ones should be attending adoption events!
Meet Glinda & Elphaba!
These two little girls came from Chicago animal control. They lost their mama and needed a place to take care of them so to KittenvilleUSA they came. They started on bottle feeding, but quickly started eating soft food on their own. The may get a supplement from a bottle or syringe but they're eating pretty good on their own. They're tiny but they think they're big fierce kitties. They're funny and adorable. Being so young, they will be here for a while so they'll be well adjusted little kittens by adoption time.
Elphaba was adopted!!
UPDATE 11/16/2019: Braeburn was adopted! YAY! He found his forever home!!
UPDATE 10/15/2019: More pictures added.
UPDATE 9/22/2019: It is with sadness that I have to let you know that Jonagold, our little guy, has passed away. His fight is over and he is resting with God now. A much better place, yet we miss him here. Until we meet again little buddy, run and play, I'll see you some day!
UPDATE 9/22/2019: The little guy has a name - Jonagold. He is part of the apple kittens. He is getting bigger, but he is still not like he should be. We are still tube feeding him every few hours 24x7. He is sometimes active and sometimes very withdrawn. I hope he is just worn out and that he is still growing in a positive direction. He is a trooper. His brothers and sisters are giant compared to him, but that's ok. We just want him to turn in a good direction. Start eating more from mom and especially just grow and develop. Keep those prayers for him going! We appreciate every one of them!
We also have some additional pics of all of them below.
UPDATE 9/19/2019: The little guy keeps doing better! He is up to 136g and is holding his weight. He is getting 5.4ml of food each feeding now. He's still a tiny little runt next to his siblings, but he's still fighting to catch up with the. He doesn't let them push him around either, though he loses most of the time because he is so tiny. But he tries! Keep the prayers for him going and before we know it, he will bet getting adopted!
UPDATE 9/17.2019: The little boy with the rough start just keeps on fighting. He's spunky! He is up to 95g. That is not much, but it's 20g more than just a couple days ago. He is an amazing little guy. His lungs are getting stronger and he makes more noise - which is a good thing. He doesn't like the tube feeding, but then again, nobody does. At least he fights it a little now. He is still not out of the woods, but I'm really pulling for him. We feed him every 2 hours now. He even tried to feed from mama today! Continue with the prayers!! Thanks!
UPDATE 9/15/2019: One of the little baby boys is having a rough start. He is the smallest and possibly not fully developed inside perhaps. He is hanging on at the moment, but is very lethargic and really isn't eating on his own. Sometimes he tries, but he's weak. We are even tube feeding him, but he's not really responding. We're really sad. Please say a little prayer fo the little guy to pull through. Thanks.
UPDATE 9/12/2019: Mama had her babies! Around 12:30AM today, mama started having her babies. She went until about 3AM or so and had 6 babies. Looked like it was going to be 5 and then out of nowhere, number 6 arrived. They're so tiny and adorable of course. She is a great mama and has probably done this before. Right now everything looks great!
UPDATE 9/3/2019: This mama is a sweetie. No name yet. She likes to talk to you when you go in to visit her. I think she is saying feed me mostly. She loves to eat and talk. And if you want to pet her or rub her face, she is all for that too. No babies yet!
Our newest KittenvilleUSA friend has arrived. She is a sweetie who is going to have more sweeties! She is kind of a tiny kitty, but her belly looks big. No guess yet as to how many babies, but we'll have to see what the vet says when they see her. More pictures soon.
Meet Moolicious, Mootastic and Mini-Moo!
Our new kittens! The moo-kittens! 3 adorable little kittens who need a mom. In a few days they will get introduced to Haukea. Hopefully, she will take them in and care for them. But most of all, feed them!!! We have been tube feeding them because they're not taking food any other way we've tried. We really, really hope she will help out. She is a a great mama, so I'm feeling very positive at this time! Can't wait for Thursday!
Beset, Bacon, and Eggs!
UPDATE 10/15/2019: Bacon got adopted! YAY!!! He found his forever home today. He will have a buddy at his new home too. Great day for Bacon!
UPDATE 10/6/2019: Bereft and Befuddled found forever homes this weekend! They didn't go together, they found separate homes but that's ok. They got their new human and a forever home. They're both super sweet kitties and I'm sure their new humans will love having them in their houses for years to come. Great job little ones!! Next, Beset! Oh, and Bacon & Eggs too!!!!
UPDATE 9/17/2019: Finally have some decent pictures of the little one's now that they're feeling and looking a bit better. They are all running around the room together now and get along just fine. Kittens this age all love toes! So when you go in their room, you get 5 kittens wanting to play with your toes! They're so silly. This is a great age. They will be ready for adoption soon!
The 5-Pack of kittens! They're adorable!
Glinda & Elphaba!
UPDATE 11/72019: Elphaba was adopted and now has a forever home! YAY!! Now we need Glinda to find her forever home too! Great job Elphaba!
UPDATE 9/17/2019: When these two aren't hanging out with Kelina and Leinani they're in a pen in our living room. Our cats just sit there looking at the pen thinking how they can get in and eat their food. Sometimes they get to break out of the pen and run around the room which they find to be awesome!! (Espn just hopped on my lap to help me and to take a nap on my lap, what a great helper) These two are doing great. They eat a lot and are healthy and growing. When they hop in their bread bed (a bed shaped like a loaf of bread with a butter pillow) they hug each other an put their heads on the butter pillow. Simply adorable. It would be nice for them to stay together, but it might be too early to call that one yet.
New kittens! Glinda & Elphaba. They're tiny and adorable.
Since there aren't any KittenvilleUSA kitties at PetSmart at this time, here are our official KittenvilleUSA cats for you to enjoy! (aka - Our own kitties)
Sadly, Bazinga, Jack, Maxxx and Oscar are no longer with us, but we'll catch up to them on the other side at some point!
Bazinga was the only foster kitten we ever kept throughout all the years of fostering kitties.
There have been many I wanted to keep though!
Since 2012 we’ve worked with the
Animal Rescue Foundation - IL
to foster cats and kittens in the southwest suburbs of Chicago
The kitties have their own room we call Kittenville!

KittenvilleUSA is the room in our home dedicated to our foster mamas and their kittens, kittens without mamas, and any other cat that may need a place to say. They don’t have to stay in a cage at some shelter, they have a whole room to run and play in.
When they're ready for adoption, they will be at ARF - Animal Rescue Foundation - IL events at PetSmart. Normally, they go to Wheaton, IL or Darien, IL PetSmart stores. See the maps (above this FAQ) on this page for locations. Sometimes there are special events at other locations.
