    Some of you may not know....but i foster kittens.

    This group was heartbreaking and so sad. We rescued momma from a shelter that had put her and her litter on the list to be euthanized that day. Momma is only a kitten herself, 9 months. Someone stuffed her pregnant into the night drop box. :eek: They let her have her litter and gave her all of her shots, chipped her..... and 2 days... and then she and her kittens were to be put down. The kittens were 3 days old.

    Momma was not doing well, she was not taking care of her kittens at all..so we took her to the ER. They told us that she had cancer or FIP and that she should be put down :eek: That answer was not good enough for us...so took her elsewhere to be worked over by the best of the best ER vets in the city.... turns out that momma was suffering from dehydration, exhaustion, depletion and having an adverse reaction to the shots.

    So everyone was instantly a bottle feeder...including momma. I only lost one kitten :(


    But... look at them now! ...WOOHOO a total success.... almost ready to be adopted out. I am happy!

    They appears to be some seal point and ragdoll in momma, we named her Growler.... two of the kittens look very seal point... several have her blue eyes too.

    I hope you aren't still bottle feeding them...if you are, you're a SUCKA!

    I've raised quite a few babies by hand, well done!

    THANK YOU for saving mama and her babies! The 4th from the left looks like the one we rescued 2 months ago, he's a spoiled rotten kitty and happy as hell!

    You did good work my friend, keep on helping out little friends who can't help themselves!

    BRAVO! :clap2:

    EXCELLENT job, syrenn! What is wrong with people who dump their pets like that? :eek:
    Those kitties are too, too adorable and the mom cat looks terrific. Good luck with finding homes for them!

    We had two cats when I was a kid, a brother and sister named Barney and Jenny. Barney was black and white; Jenny was white and black. We were watching the mom cat for our neighbors and she would have had the kittens under my bed (how cool for a 10 year old, huh?) but the neighbors came home and an hour later the kittens were born. She had three but one died and they gave us the other two (they were going to take them to the spca). We watched them again when the kittens were still little but starting to wean off of the mom. We used to mix up baby cereal and feed them some on our fingers and guide them to the bowl. After they got the hang of that we introduced real cat food. I always liked when they climbed in the cereal bowl while eating and got covered. lol

    You'll have to get yourself a trash dumpster so they will have someplace to play!
