Favorite Food: Milk Replacement and Wellness Kitten Food
Skills: To Warm Everyone's Heart
Arrival Story: My neighbour let her female cat out and she became pregnant, Nov 26th she had four kittens but one was 1/2 the size of the others weighing only 2 oz's.
My neighbour didn't think she would live as she was so small and asked me to come over. I went over to see the kittens and told her to get milk replacement and feed her a little every few hours to make sure she got enough to eat, which she did the first 2 weeks .
Well she called me last night (Dec 30/08) and told me that the little one was not looking good and if I would mind coming over to look at her. I went over that morning and WOW she was SO tiny and thin compared to her siblings, the other kittens where running around and she was just sleeping. I picked her up and their was nothing to her, her siblings are 3 times her size and weighed a lot more then her, she was all bones and fur. The kittens are 5 weeks old and I knew by the look of her she was not going to make it if I didn't take her. The lady said she has not been given her the replacement for about 2 weeks as she was to busy, I told her I will take her and try to save her.
I went out to the pet store and got her the milk replacement and she emptied the syringe 3 times in 5 mins and fell asleep in her kennel. I don't know if she will make it but all I know is I could not just not give her a real chance, she is a fighter for something so small. I weighed her the first day I got her home she was 4 oz's the size of a new born kitten at almost 5 weeks.
I have decided that she WILL make it and I will keep her , we named her Angel for such a special little girl that was truly sent from above.
Bio: She is now 8 weeks old and she weighs 10 oz's, she has had a few scary moments when I thought she wasn't going to make it but she keeps pulling threw , she is my little fighter that's for sure. And all the love and prayers from her Catster friends and Angels has helped us more then words can express, TY.
A special Thanks to North Toronto Cat Rescue who are going to help me get Angels shot's and getting her fixed. I have worked with this rescue this past summer and they are great. They are now in need of volunteer workers who can help run their new shelter in Toronto as well as donations, their e-mail address is email@example.com..
I am sorry I have not updated my post but mommy been busy looking after me. I am still on meds for infection but I am eating on my own now, the blood test came back good except for my kiddney level was alittle high.
I have to go in for dental surgery Friday as they think that it may be the source of the infection, please keep me in your thoughts one more time for my surgery.
Thank You for sending me paw mails and rossetes, I love you all so much.
Its been a while but mommy is upset and wanted me to let my friends on here know that I am not feeling well.
I have'nt been eating well lately but the last to days I got worse, so mommy took me to the vets. Vet said I was running a fever and had lost some weight since my last visit two weeks ago.
