As a frequent kitten foster mom, Amber Blankenship goes to great lengths to find her fur babies their forever homes.
Hoping to raise awareness for shelter animals, the Oregon woman recently shared a series of "Olympic" photos that have the internet swooning — and laughing! In the pictures, Amber transformed her current litter into members of the first-ever Team USA kitten bobsled team!

3. "I hope this will spread some kitten joy and lots of smiles!" she added.
4. Amber stressed that no kittens were injured or harmed in any way while taking these pictures. She is an animal lover, after all.
5. In fact, the cats seem to be having the time of their lives!
6. She captured every moment of the action from start to finish.
7. Each picture is cuter than the last!
8. At the end of the event, Team USA's first-ever kitten bobsledders took home the gold medal for cuteness.
