Being a guest instead of a foster means Saturn can explore the hall and even meet the home cats. Even before seeing Snuggles (birthday cat! 18 years old today), Saturn was fluffed, but I think this is maximum tail fluff.

Saturn’s new family will pick her up tomorrow evening. Her sister, Mercury, got adopted at the end of today so this is her first evening without any siblings. She’s pretty clingy.
Mercury is still available. She is happy to be back from the boring shelter. Her sister was lonely at home if I was out of the room. (Saturn is a guest until Sunday evening).
They’re all fixed now. Neptune is at the shelter, waiting to get her new mom. Saturn, as I was thinking might be the case, is a girl. She and Mercury are a little wobbly yet. Plus hungry and thirsty, and wanting to wash their bellies, and easily distracted. This is another set fascinated with the water bowl when on post-surgery drugs. Not as bad as Wendy a few litters back (https://yetmorefosterkittens.wordpress.com/2017/02/11/3577/).
NEWS FLASH: because they’ve gained weight so well, spay/neuter is tomorrow!
Every one is over 2 pounds now.
The girls are both over 2 pounds now and Saturn lacks only 2 ounces. Their spay-neuter day is set for October 3rd. It has become more challenging to keep them in the room. Neptune practically has wings, she jumps so elegantly.
They had a good game of door going until home cat, Commie, walked by and hissed.
On a different note, Mercury had very dirty ears. The others didn’t and it took me a moment to figure a probably explanation: Mercury is the one who likes to plow head-first through the kitty litter. : (
