I have to splain about our lack of Catster Action!
We had a grand plan really get down with our Catster pals this past week and, well...
Seems the Dad said yes to saving a little kitten.
I mean what could we say! Here is the story.
Dads friend called him on Monday. She said there were kittens and a Mom cat on her porch. Long story but Dad said he would make some calls and see what he could do.
The next day she called and said the little one was not moving! He was on the porch all night in the cold. Dad said to warm him and get him to him Right Away.
He was very slow moving. Dad thought it was all over. He warmed him up and gave a few droppers of formula. He repeated this a few time. At 6pm on Tuesday the kitten went very still and coma like. Dad said: "No, Not Again!"
(He had lost Teeny Tiny after only 2 days of foster 2 years ago) Dad started to vigorously rub this kitten all over and held him in a towel warmed in the microwave. At 7pm He opened his eyes a little and Dad gave him 2cc of formula. This was repeated every half hour till 11.
Then he woke on his own and groomed his little paw for a minute. That was the turning point. Dad saw he was breathing easily. At 3am the little fellow was HUNGRY and ate 10cc of formula and then slept.
Well it has been progress ever since and he even ate some wet food. A trip to the vet on Friday to get the check and he is FIV and FeLV negative. This means he is allowed out to our area. He smells funny, oh meow!
Today he was running around on the floor for a long time having a grand time. We are pretty well used to him and let him bumble into us as he hops around.
So there is a lot going on. Dad says there are 2 more coming but they are going into the foster room. I asked why he is not down there? Dad did not say anything. Hmmmm, this could be trouble
Other BIG News is that I am in the Cat Scouts! Wheee! Check out my picture! There are a lot of Catster friends there so come on over and Check out the Cat Scouts
Hey, hope to see you all soon!
Purrs from you pal
Kudos to your family for helping out this little one. Thanks for checking in!
Good to hear from you Timmy. Great job helping out the baby!
Glad the wee one pulled through! Good job dad! Purring for him and the other little ones.
Great job! So happy the wee kitty will be well.
Sending purrs to all of you!
Your pops is so pawsome he saved the little dood's life. Way to go pops. We can't wait to meet him and his sibs.
Your dad is great guy! He saved the little one's life (raises paw and salutes)!
You gots tha bestest DadCat!
Oh glad to hear the little feller is ok. I hope he is fun to play with. I am going to check out the scouts :) That really looks like fun.
Give your pops a mancat headbonk from me. I was a stray once upon a time too.
That's pawsome to help out the baby!
Your dad is amazing! Sounds like what goes on around here. Mom goes on FB and views 'cats on death row' and shares and when there is a 'vacancy' here, another comes.
As soon as mom is done with all this 'licensing stuff' for her MSW she will let us join Cat Scouts! I think that I would make a good Cateagle scout, what do you think?
Your pops is SO awesome...so glad he took that kitten in and took care of him and got him well again. Happy for you Timmy and glad you guys are OK with him too. Good luck to the little fella and maybe the other two will get to stay too!
Yep, he's a great catpop he is!
And concats on DDP!
Wow, Timmy, your Dad is a hero for saving that little kitten's life! He sure is a tiny thing and very cute. You're looking good in your Cat Scout uniform! See ya around!
What a pawsome Dad you have! That little kitten is super cute:) I bet you are a good brofur to him and will teach him some fun stuff. Congrats on your DDP Timmy!
