My [early] Birthday Present

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I lost my Billy a few weeks ago and my mom felt just awful especially since the holidays (and my birthday) are upon us.

So she showed up at my door on Friday night with this...


He's just about 5 weeks old, nearly fully siamese (I was told..) and so tiny and adorable. He is getting along with my other 3 perfectly, well my other boy, Cobee, doesnt like him too much but Cobee has been a bit off since Billy left us.

Im just so excited. I named him Ashleigh and I call him Ash for short. He tries to keep up with the others buit when they get too rough he comes and nuzzles on my neck. He's such a sweety pie. Im totally inlove... :

He's asleep in my arms <3 <3 <3

Ohh he is so sweet! But so young! What happened to his mother? Such a shame he is not with her anymore, was he orphaned?

To be honest the owner of the mother didnt want to keep the litter any longer and just started giving them away. There were 7 and they were all adopted out by Saturday morning. He is too young, I know this but what can ya do when the responsible party dsoesnt want to care for them?

Ive been feeding him formula in a bottle before bed and in the morning, and then mixing formula with kitten food and he also helps himself to the big kitty food lol. He seems to be okay, I mean when he is upset he just runs to me I think I mayu be the replacement mommy Im not sure.

I wish he was with his siblings though Im sure he misses them..... I have a towel that they all slept on in my bed and he sleeps on that at night. <3

Oh - he's very cute! He looks like a blue point Siamese. If he gets along fairly well with the other cats, it is my opinion that they will help raise him a bit - at least discipline him when he is doing something particularly "uncatlike" which is what the mother does in the later kitten stages. Congrats!

that is good you are his replacement mommy. and good that you have other cats to hopefully look after him. I hate irresponsible people like that...dumb enough to let their cat get pregnant but not willing to properly care for something that could have easily been avoided. You should send her an annoymous email or letter of some low cost spay/neuter clinics in your area.

sounds like you are doing a great job caring for him though. hope all goes well!

Well..I hope they got the mom fixed. 5 weeks is far too young to have been taken away from their mom.

Very cute...but unless you know that both mom and dad were full blood siamese..the best you can say is that it is a possible siamese mix.

Aww he IS cute - pretty blue point. But WHY is he only 5 weeks old? Where did you mom get him? Kittens are better if left with brothers/sisters/mom till 10-12 weeks old.

My rex kittens were barely eating solid food at 5 weeks old and no where near ready for new homes physically/psychologically.

I hope you don't have too many "early kitten" problems - especially with socialization and possible litter pan problems. One thing you might experience is his tendency to be a suckler - many siamese taken away too young develop this habit.

GoldenKitty45 like I said above the owner of the mom didnt want them and gave them all away last week.

He seems to be okay, pretty steady on his legs, eating well, etc.

I have 1 suckler who is verging on 5 months who was abandoned at 2 weeks of age who I adopted at 12. We have stuffed animals around the house they use - I assume eventually they will grow out of it.


Thanks to everyone on the congrads.... Im excited to watch him grow and watch his marking become more prominent. Brain's orange has darkened so much from 12 weeks to now and Ash's dark grey markings are already very dark so I wonder if they will turn to black.

Congratulations, he is lovely

He is just beautiful and I am sure you are a grreat 'mom'! But it does annoy me to hear of people like the previous owner. All people who take the kittens may not be as responsible/knowledgeable as you.
