    Default I got kittens!!!

    Well I am on sabbatical for fostering for Los Gatos Foster ANimal cat REscue and had planned to take a break but then I sit on FB every morning and see all the posts of animals in need and came across a woman who had a new mama with her 6 kittens and her husband told her they had to go by Monday so Labor Day I got kittens. They are just so amazing. Their eyes are opening now. Today they are 13 days old. I am beginning to see differences in them so I can sex them and tell them apart. Everything I have read says not to handle them too much during their first two weeks or mama may quit feeding regularly. So I abide, mama is healthy. They just had to be treated for fleas. I am so excited.

    Thanks guys. I have done minimal necessary checks here and there to make sure no fleas, no growths or abnormalities and everybody looks healthy. I have done good now it is time to socialize and get use to hands swooping in and getting use to being handled. Mama always looks at me like I am crazy but she gets them right back lol. I am trying to pick names. I think I actually have two girls and four boys. Penelope and Lola for the girls and Rusty and Angus for the orange boys now I have two more names to think of.

    oh how i'd love to touch those kitten noses with my nose. that is what i always did so that they would know me. and we'd always bond. of course i know that if kitty mommy does not know you well, she might try and move her babies. i use to take that personal until i realised she was mostly trying to throw off all the male cats who migh be around and get close enough to do harm to her babies. that does actually happen i know because it happened more than once to kittens on our farm. my dad would not let me keep the cat and kittens in the house way back when. i was out wherever they were most of the time anyway. cats and kittens were y one true constant companions when i was young. it might be to cold to walk to neighbors to play but never to cold to wrap up and go pla with kitties. i still love kitten breath! thank you for being those animals best pal. so glad that there are people who can and will do the job.
