Upon their arrival, the kittens were cold and unresponsive. It’s heartbreaking to witness their struggle, and I fear that their premature birth may result in a tragic outcome. This is just another devastating case, as the mother cat is young and malnourished due to being rescued from a hoarding situation. I can’t help but feel immense sadness, as there seems to be little I can do to save these vulnerable creatures.
Exciting news! The premature babies are now able to nurse and I am happy to report that I have found a wonderful foster to assist them. While there is still some way to go, this development is an excellent sign. Thank you so much, Alexia! During the feeding process, I also helped the smallest kitten find a comfortable spot to nurse and even held it until my hand fell asleep. As for the premature kittens, they are still alive and thriving! They have reached their normal birth weight and their foster is continually supporting and supplementing their needs. I can only imagine how tired she must be, but I am grateful for her help. Check out their progress!
Can you believe it? The little ones are already one week old! Big thank you to their amazing foster parent who has been working tirelessly to make sure they receive the best care around the clock. If you’re interested in following their journey, be sure to check out @fourfootedkids on social media. You’ll get to see Pepita, the tortoiseshell kitten, Amigo, the black kitten, and their mom, Reina. It makes me so happy to see them thriving and doing well.
