New to Forum!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'n new to the forum, but not to the kitty world!! I usually get my babies thru strays or find abandoned kittens. I've raised 5 bottle babies. My oldest died last fall at 11. He was frail since he was a baby.

I currently have 4 boys of my own & one stray female.

My boys are: Sunny, Scotch, & Sugar ( all brothers) and Smoke, the grumpy head boy!! Bella is a girl & her litter of babies.

The 3 boys are all litter mates (born on the first day of summer, last year)

Sunny was born first, on the porch & was cold & stiff when I found him just in time. He was very, very tiny when he was born, only as long as my finger. He has some developmental problems, (I think related to lack of oxygen & hypothermia when we found him), but we love him! He seems mentally slow & just not quite right. He lagged about 2 weeks behind his brother when they were babies.

Scotch is the biggest guy. All floppy & full of purrs! Loves to be held & will jump in your arms when you snap your fingers. Follows me everywhere & loves to have your full & undivided attention.

Sugar is the most sensitive of the 3 boys. All 3 were very sick when they were 4 weeks, until almost 2 months old. A very bad URI. He fared the worst & eventually had to be forced to eat & drink, nursed around the clock. We almost lost him for a week. The vet was very surprised that he pulled thru & said it was only due to my constant nursing. He is still a little more fragile that the other 2. He just had a cut that got infected, & dropped weight very quickly. He is a snuggler & loves to just lay on you for hours!! Makes me feel guilty when I have to move him! He will eat anything!! Loves raw veggies, especially caulifower & carrots! But I still can't get the weight to stay on him.

Smoke is the oldest, just turned 4. He is a big guy, & a tough cookie. He had no time for the 3 boys & lets them know that! He is my son's best bud & is just a big ole' love with us.

I hope to find a home for Bella, I really don't need any more kitties (At least that's what I keep chanting, ...no more cats...no more cats...one more cat..

All of these cats are related (coming from the same farm) and are scheduled for altering in the next week or so. SPCA makes appt & calls you when it's time.
