I am up to 9 foster kittens, and picking up 3 more today. Last Saturday I picked up a litter of 3 kittens, 2 females and one male. One of the females is much smaller than her brother and sister, If I didn't know better I would think she was younger than they are. After watching her we noticed she is "different", she makes exagerated movements in placing her feet when she walks, and her facial proportions are a little out of whack, she has very large eyes, smaller ears and a larger head (though that may just be because her other features are out of proportion). We call her our Downs Syndrome kitten, though she plays and does everything else like a normal kitten. Both the vets I wrk with checked her out and everything else seems to be in order medically, they just suggested holdeing her back for awhile before adopting her out. Anyone else come across a kitten like this?
