I have to say, it's hard not to be a little flattered here. This poor cat has been suffering her whole life. The right side of her nose is collapsed completely, she wheezes just a little bit from the obstruction. Her teeth are black in places from grime. Not tooth decay, just from eating trash I'm sure. She's still horribly skinny but I'm stuffing as much food in her as she'll eat so she'll plump up. Right now she's eating up to 4 cans of Authority per day
The rescuse group (thank God for them) captures her and keeps her isolated for 14 days in a carrier. Tests her for disease etc. They bring her to me in that same carrier. We let her out in the bedroom. I don't think she's ever been with people, but she immediately came to me. Within a day she had stopped hiding and was flopping over for belly rubs. Still unsure, when I'd lay down she'd walk circles around me for a few minutes, then ease her way in. At first just sitting close so I could pet her, then rolling over once she felt better. Then as time went on she realized I was safe. Now she walks up and rubs her face against mine, and lays down on my arm that I'm laying my head on. She rolls over towards me smashing herself against me to be close. I pet her and she lays back with her front two paws kneading the air
I just don't see how life could get any sweeter than that for a person. What a joy!

Let her be, she's being a great mom. Put the food and litter box away (not too fae) from the nest and she'll come out eventually. She's probably coming in and out without you knowing anyway!
she came out today when ALL the kittens were asleep. She's very attentive and I think she just refused to leave until all were quiet
Good idea on shifting them from one side to the other. the box is plenty big for that. I want to waash the shirts so I can use them to rotate out again.
I still can't thank you enough for the help you gave me
ALso, incase anyone wants to see it, here's her page on the rescue group's site.http://www.desertpawsrescue.org/comp...d,86/Itemid,9/
