We Want You to Foster!

Saturday, May 2, 2009

Went to PetSmart to hold an adoption event and look what we came home with!!!

Uncle Rich holding the babies (although as the foster, we should call him Papa Rich)

Went to PetSmart around 4:15P to get everything ready for a 5:00P adoption event. Was in the middle of straightening up the cats' cages when there was a knock at the door. A lady found three little kittens by her shed and no mama in sight. The kittens appear to be about 10 days old. One is very tiny, one is about average for 10 days and the one with white (in the middle of the bottom picture) is a big boy - we're calling him Bruiser for now. :-)

Called Barb and Rich and asked them to bring me a heating pad so we could keep the babies warm. Bought some KMR and bottles real quick and fed the babies before the adoption event.

These little guys need to be fed every several hours. After the adoption event (during which Coco was adopted, more on that later), I took the kittens over to Barb and Rich's house where they will be fostered. Did a short refresher course for Rich (and quick tutorial for Barb) on taking care of the little ones -- how to mix formula, temperature of formula, how to feed, how much to feed, how to stimulate for elimination, what their body temperature should be, etc. These little ones are in good hands right now and we'll keep you posted on their progress.

I can't type today, reason for deleting the first post.

Tia, did you come home with more than you left with?
