Hello everyone...I just found this site and I have found it very imformative. Here is my story. Mid December my tenants abandoned this beautiful precious little kitty. I couldn't understand why they would leave it behind..she is the sweetest most gentle kitty. I brought it home to try and find a new home for her. We all quickly fell in love with her and although my husband was saying "no" to keeping her I knew just a few more weeks of her temporarily living with us....he would change his mind....and he did. She has found her forever home with us. To make a long story short Bella was living her life as an indoor/outdoor kitty. I went to pick her up one day and wow...I felt nipples...I never noticed this before on her. So I started doing some research...and yes her nipples were pink. I quickly made an appointment with the vet and after an ultrasound she confirmed little Bella is pregnant...she saw at least 3 kitties. Unfortunately we do not know her past vaccination record...but the great news is she tested negative to FIV and one other test. She thought Bella had about 4 weeks left to go and that was almost two weeks ago. She said keep her strictly indoors until the kittens are weaned and at that point...we will have her spayed and begin her vaccinations. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I have never had kittens before.....3 kids but not kittens. I have been reading and reading trying to learn everything I will need to know about kitten care. I am so lucky to have found such a great supporting vet. We also had her microchipped so she will never be leftt without her family again. I look forward to reading your stories and learning as much as I can....before "Bella's babies arrive.
