Arrival Story:
Stripes was found at about 3 weeks old the rest of the litter was dead. When My daughter was called by a friend she rushed over and found him. He was a very little ball of fur that fit in one hand, we didn't think he would make it. We got him to an emergency vet and they did nothing but the next day I took him to my regular vet and after a trip to the store to buy cat formula and bottles we got him home and fed him, after each meal about 2-3 hours apart he got somewhat better. Well we had to feed him the formula as he could not eat on his own, and them take him to the sink and wash his dirty face, then put him in a boxtop litter box with a warm cloth to teach him what to do. After three weeks we switched to kitten food mashed with the fomula and spoon fed him for about another week, boy was he a messy eater, a bath after every meal. He liked it then and is not a bath fighter really now But I am happy to say he has not had a sick cat day since and he is 7 yrs. old now.
