Arrival Story:
When my uncle was getting ready to go on a camping trip, a friend had handed him 3 kittens saying he found them on the side of the road, where there mother lay hit by a car. He had given me the 3-4 week-old kittens to watch while he was camping. I noted they were quite vocal and their stomaches were rather round...I was immediately concerned they had worms or were sick, but my concerns were ignored. I asked mom to bring me to the store and we picked up kitten formula after initially using warmed watered-down milk...which only works as a last resort. On the 4th day of bottle-feeding the kittens, little 1-lb Koga had gotten milk down his chin and part of his chest...so I grabbed a damp cloth and began to clean his fur off. He was fine until I got near his chest. I felt something slimy...he screamed, and I saw it move. 0.o Now entirely panicked...I told mom who asked my sister to bring him to the vet. I wasn't allowed to go with her because I had to get to school and it obviously couldn't wait. The vet removed an inch-long blowfly larva from his chest, and sent him home with antibiotics, saying if we'd waited another day he never would have made it. Thank god for him making a mess with the milk. My unlce came back the following day to pick them up, and we said we were going to keep Koga, and that the others would need to see a vet as soon as possible. He ignored us and brought the other two home and gave one to a friend, and within the week Koga was the only kitten that survived. People can be so infuriating. The 1-lb. kitten we initially brought to the vet that slept curled up under my chin grew up to be a 20-lb. cat who still thinks he's a tiny kitten.
