Yesterday we got 14 cats and kittens from 4 hours away.. they were so incredibly flea infested, it was disgusting.. the youngest of them, 22 day old babies, were so anemic from the fleas.. one passed away this evening

Jewel.


Magic


Mambo


Speckle


Sparkle


Sparkle, Speckle, Mabmo, and Magic are all Jewels babies.. they are 5 months old.
Jewel is also pregnant again.

More pictures and kitties on the way.

Boomer


Darcy


Beauty


Peyton


Sophia


Sushi


And I got them mixed up.. these babies are Jewels, and the other babies are Boomers.. ugh.. so confusing.

Boomer is the one with the 23 day old babies, there are only 2 left, I hope the other two survive.

Bless your heart! I'm glad you're taking care of them. They are lucky to have you as a foster mom . I noticed in some of the pictures that they had a little bit of goop in their eyes...have they been checked out for feline herpes or conjunctivitious yet? Just out of curiosity. They are beautiful kittens. Best of luck with them! Keep us posted!

They are actually at the rescue.

They haven't yet seen a vet.. but they will be within the next few days. Only the tiny ones saw a vet, so the vets could give them a special flea treatment.

Jewel looks like a baby herself to be pregnant again poor thing

What an angel you are!

I finally got the pics uploaded of the fleas, right after we got the wee ones treated. Alot of them are gone in these shots.

Those poor babies!

I don't know if this is a good idea for kittens or not, but it works *really* well for Buddha. After I bathe him, I rinse him off with a combination of 1 part organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar to three parts water. Don't rinse it off, just let dry. I started doing this because he was chewing himself to bits from his grass allergies and this kind of vinegar soothes the skin... but I noticed when I use it the fleas won't come anywhere near him.

I sure hope this helps. And give those poor babies a big smooch from me. They deserve it!

Poor little babies!!!! They fleas look like they've caused quite a bit of damage. I can't believe how many calicos there are!

They're certainly all very cute, I hope they find good homes. Will Jewel be allowed to have another litter or will they terminate the babies?

She may just be a skinny cat, but from that photo she looks very far along.

I can feel the lumps in there (so far only 2, maybe three, lets hope it stays that way) so she's pretty far along.. not sure approx. how long though.. her last babies are 3 months old.
But this will be her last litter ever, same with Boomer (who we renamed Senorita, as Boomer didn't fit right) Those babies are her last.. too bad their owners couldn't figure that out

Jewel had 6 healthy babies on the 14th.. three boys, and three girls.

Amazingly, there are no calicos. Three orange and white (two being female), a torishell (female), brown and black mackeral tabby, and a brown black mackeral tabby with white.

I don't think they were full term.. as they are reallly small.. but they all have all their hair and everything. Hopefully they'll be alright.

Senorita and Jewel are now sharing the litter.. they lay beside each other and the kittens nurse off whichever though so choose from. (Though we did make sure the kittens were with Jewel only for the first 24 hours.. for the colostrum)

I'll try and get pictures of them today.

Oh those poor darlings, I thought for sure the picture of jewel was just a kitten. She's going to be gorgeous once she's spayed and puts on some healthy weight. Thank goodness your rescue could save these guys!!

Healthy vibes coming for the babies........can't wait to see the pics!

Poor little Jewel! I thought she was one of the kittens, too. No wonder she has such a sad little face. I am glad to hear she and her kits are doing ok. Magic is just adorable. I hope all of them get good furrever homes. Bless you for taking them in.
