Hi guys!!! Just had to tell you about my new babies, since I haven't been on all weekend..I have been so busy lately....sorry.
Anyway....Friday night, my husband and I got home very late at night from some friend's house, and when I went outside to give my cats a treat before I went to bed, and I heard the most pathetic meewing nose coming from the yard. I went out with a flashlight...and there was a tiny little kitten, it had to have been born only a short time before, because the afterbirth was still attached!!
I took him in, cleaned him all up, and wasn't at all sure what to feed him, as I only had 2% milk in the house, and I had heard that isn't good for them. I think I kind of went into a panic, because it was so tiny, and so cute, and I was scared to death I wouldn't do the right thing, and it would die!
So I called Rene (from this catsite) I have never talked to her before....but since she does cat rescues, I thought maybe she could help me with some advice. And she did! (Though I feel really bad about calling her in the middle of the night like that)
So then Saturday night, I went outside to get something out of my car, and heard ANOTHER kitten crying in the yard. Got out the flashlight, and there it was! I don't know where they came from! My only idea is that maybe one of the neighbors cats came up here and had them, and left them. But would a kitten that small have been able to survive for a whole day on it's own? And if it was there Friday night, I would have heard it,too. So maybe the dogs have found them somewhere and brought them up. I don't know. All I know is they are doing great, they eat the kitten replacement milk I bought at Walmart on Saturday, and they sleep on a heating pad turned on low and covered with a towel.
There little tummies are really fat! They just eat like crazy!
The first one I found is black with white legs and a white face...and the second one is a smokey grey color, with a few tiger markings on his side. I think they are both boys.
Just wanted to tell you about them!
Thanks Rene for being so understanding when I called you in such a panic at such a time of night! You were wonderful!
