The Trip's story: This was posted about 8 months ago on the forum
Went grocery shopping today, and as I came out of the store, I noticed a group of kids around a big decorated trunk. I went over to see what the fuss was all about, and inside the trunk were the cutest baby kittens! I leaned down to look at them they were clearly sick- eyes crusty, nose running,ears gunky. I started giving my lecture of "you really should get the mom spayed- I have some certificates in my car" speil. An older kid said, "the mom cat is dying, her nipples are falling off! GRRRR!
So now, I have 3 babies upstairs- they ate like there was no tomorrow, and they have been de-wormed and medicated. They are pure white, except for splashes of color on their heads. One has a splash of black, the others have peach, black and beige. They are feral babies as well, hiss, spit and claws, but they are now in a safe place. I believe there are two females and a male, but they are still to young to tell. I put them at just under a month old.
Mike was waiting at the truck for me when I got out of the store, and I had to go over to him first and ask him "Honey, do you have your rescue hat on right now?"
I told the family when I took the kittens that they needed to take the mom to the vet and have her looked at, and if she was dying they needed to put her to sleep. They just looked at me like I was nuts.....and you know what? I probably am.
Noddy is so beautiful. She's your alpha, isn't she? I must admit, I have a weakness for white cats, or cats with white paws (Shhhh, don't tell my two). I remember when the three of them would curl up together on that one platform. Do they still spend all their time together? They had such a close bond when they were wee babies.....
