This colony exists on a farm in Bradner where the barn cats are well cared for, which a nice warm barn and food twice a day (in addition to all the rats they can catch). TinyKittens helped the property owner to get all of the adults spayed or neutered in order to keep the 30-cat colony from blowing up to double or triple that size by spring. TinyKittens did a fix-a-thon in December 2018 that resulted in nearly the entire colony being spayed or neutered (or taken into care with TinyKittens).
- maternity ward — Mamas and their babies who are currently staying at TKHQ until adoption or return to colony
- pending furry tail endings — cats/kittens brought in from the feral colony or its surroundings who (as far as I know) are still waiting to find their forever homes
- furry tail endings — a master list of all cats/kittens brought in from the feral colony or its surroundings who went on to find forever homes
- “sort of” furry tail endings — cats/kittens from the feral colony who were either re-homed as barn cats or who made their own happy place living outdoors with human companionship
- kittens born at TinyKittens HQ to mothers from the feral colony or its surroundings
- temporary guests — cats/kittens who stayed at TKHQ for a time while they recovered or while socialization was attempted with them but who subsequently returned to the forest
- RIPs — cats/kittens who passed away while at TKHQ
These lists are in chronological order from date brought in to TKHQ. The lists generally just contain very brief information and key dates for the cats/kittens — pages with more detailed information are under construction.

Pending Furry Tail Endings
- The kittens:
- The teenagers: These three gingers are suspected to be part of the same April 2018 litter. (Per the PO, there is generally one really small kitten in every litter, which would be why Stanley is so much smaller than the two girls.) It’s unsure yet which of the three — if any — will be returned to the colony and which will be adopted out. They are all getting more and more comfortable around humans.
- Jean Grey (Phoenix) — Jean Grey, a ginger tabby, was trapped on December 13, 2018. She was taken to Mountain View on December 14, 2018, where it was determined that she was not pregnant. She is missing the foot (below the ankle) on her rear right leg, but it was an old injury that has healed over and calloused up. She gets around quite well on it. She was spayed on December 20, 2018, and is currently being socialized (and slowly coming out of her shell around humans) with the other Bradner kittens and cats.
- Stanley — Stanley, an eight-month-old classic ginger tabby, was trapped on December 12, 2018. He had URI symptoms (including gunky eyes), which were treated, and he was neutered on December 15, 2018. He had a poor reaction to the anaesthesia and took a bit longer to recover from his neuter than is typical at TinyKittens. Subsequent to that, he started to appear more lethargic. And, unlike the others, he had no weight gain at all since coming in. He went to specialists for scans and tests and was given additional parasite treatment and antibiotics, but his weight has plateaued after a gain of about 200 grams and he is still not as active as the others. More tests are being done to find out what is wrong.
- Madelyne Pryor was brought in on December 13, 2018. After scans at Mountain View confirmed that she wasn’t pregnant, she was spayed on December 17, 2018. She hung out upstairs with the other Bradner TNRed cats until they all went home; at that point, she moved in with Jean, Stanley, and the Bradner kittens and cats still at TKHQ. She was unhappy with the other cats at first (likely due to the stress of the situation and not her personality) but she enjoys human company and now plays a lot with the other cats and snugglers.
Furry Tail Endings
- Pepper Potts — Very floofy black female kitten. Brought in December 8, 2018. About 6 or 7 weeks old. She was adopted by the same people who adopted Cassidy’s brother Topper (from the Happy Forest colony) and The Wee Pumpkin (from the Lion Colony). Their Facebook page is Topper from Protector to Pampered.
- Hela and Hera — Tabby female and her tiny tabby twin. Brought in December 10, 2018. About 6 or 7 weeks old. They were spayed on December 28, 2018, and were adopted together on December 30, 2018. Their new names are Grace (Hela) and Cordelia (Hera), and their Facebook page is Cordelia And Grace “Too” Hip Cats.
“Sort of” Furry Tail Endings
- All cats who were spayed or neutered and returned to the barn at the colony have gotten what they would consider to be their furry tail ending as they were returned to a warm barn with twice daily feedings.
Kittens Born at TinyKittens HQ
- Aunt May — Tabby female adult. Brought in December 8, 2018. About 1.5 to 2 years old. She was taken to Mountain View on December 14, 2018, where it was determined that she is likely pregnant. Later x-rays showed that she was NOT pregnant. She was spayed on January 7, 2019. (Dr. Ferguson noted later that she had possibly the most well-used uterus she had seen.) She is not particularly happy inside so will likely eventually go back to the colony.
- Anelle — Torbie female. Brought in December 13, 2018. She was taken to Mountain View on December 14, 2018, where they were 90% sure that she is pregnant. However, she showed no physical changes consistent with pregnancy over the next several weeks and an ultrasound on January 10, 2019, confirmed that she is NOT pregnant. She will be scheduled for her spay, after which she and Aunt May will return to the barn colony.
