I rescue. In fact, Typhus Surprise Attack is a previous foster kitten who grew on me.
Here she is at 4 weeks, a week after being found by a neighbor's child. White gums, eyes sealed shut by a URI, ringworm, other worms, severe flea infestation. A solid sheet of fleadirt which made her feel grainy. Both inner ears solidly caked with earmite residue.
She was fur, fleadirt and bones. Her skeleton was very obvious. I didn't expect her to make it, and her name is Typhus as a joking description of her, the sickest kitten I've cared for.
Here she is now, at close to 8 months (with another previous foster kitten who grew on us as well. He's bf's kitten. He's half her size and has only grown about 20% since rescue. He's a week youger than Typhus.), a long, lanky cat who purrs like crazy and only chirps and trills.
She's already bigger and heavier than Pudge, and is the only other cat who Pudge will truly play with. They stand a good chance of being related, as they were found in the same general area (~2 years apart) and are very similar.
