Konani came from an overcrowded home situation. She had to be surrendered. Luckily, we got her!! She is the most adorable loving little girl! We have had her about a week, and she is getting a big belly! Twice the size of when she came to Kittenville. She loves to be petted and snuggle with you. She even loves belly rubs. I'm going with 4 kittens, so it will probably be 7!
LOL, it was 7! She had 7 kittens last night!
What does the name Konani mean?
Konani is an Hawaiian name that means shining.
Nohea and her 5 babies came from a southern Illinois shelter. They appear to be in good health at this moment, time will tell. They are all friendly and love to run around Kittenville! They are about 7 weeks old so they will be available for adoption soon!!
What does the name Nohea mean?
Nohea is an Hawaiian name that means beautiful.
UPDATE 2/15/2020: Haukea's kittens have all found their forever homes. Now it's time for Haukea! Why not stop over at the Darien PetSmart and visit her. She might let you take her home!
UPDATE 2/10/2020: Crispin found her new forever home at her first adoption event! That is so awesome!! She now has a new home with another kitty and will be very happy there are no dogs! Great job Crispin!!! She is a perfect kitty, they will love her!
UPDATE 2/1/2020: Sadly, Crispin was returned. The humans that adopted her have a dog. And while Zestar has no problem with the dog, Crispin was afraid. So, Crispin is back at Kittenville and will be available for adoption!! She's a sweetie. See her solo gallery below...
UPDATE 11/23/2019: Crispin & Zestar were adopted together today! YAY!!!
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 He is sometimes active and sometimes very withdrawn.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.
UPDATE 2/15/2020: Added more baby kitten pics and a couple of Konani. She is such a great mama. Her little babies are all little fatties and growing so fast!
UPDATE 2/5/2020: One of the palindrome kittens has passed away. Bob decided that this was not his time and went back to God. He was an adorable little guy and we will miss him.
UPDATE: 1/26/20: Our Konani is just adorable. She is kind of a tiny kitten but her belly is growing with kitten!! More pictures coming soon, and babies too!!
UPDATE 1/26/20: Nohea is our newest mama. She arrives shortly after Konani. However, Nohea's kittens are about 7 weeks old! Just about ready to adopt! YAY!! They're named after fasteners - Buckle, Button, Snap, Velcro and Zipper. They're all great kittens. They seem healthy and they love playing. I don't know their personalities yet, but they are all really friendly and brave. No running and hiding. They come out and play. Three of the 5 are fuzzy with longer hair. The other 2 are short hair. Mama herself is tiny too. She's probably pretty young. More pics coming soon...
Below are the kitties from KittenvilleUSA at PetSmart ready to find their forever homes!

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.
Watch this page for information on events or check out the ARF - Animal Rescue Foundation - IL website for event information.
