We Want You to Foster!

Hayley - 2-week old kitten

Noon, Thursday. April 15th: And yet another kitten but from a different situation (come to us from Clayton). We really don't have any available foster homes, but we couldn't turn away this little girl. Her right eye is on the outside of her face and almost looks like a big lump of dirt on her face.  Dr. Jodi said she only weighs half a pound and is about 2 weeks old. She'll need to have her eye removed when she weighs 1-2 pounds (preferrably 2 pounds if it doesn't start bothering her before).  Agan with the iphone pix so quality not good.

Update: 3:35 PM, Thursday, April 15th: Hayley (the kitten) is headed back to the vet at this very moment. She's in a foster home that is very experienced with newborns/itty bitties/sick/under developed kittens and the foster is worried about her - said she's not thriving. If Debbie is worried, I'm worried. We need some warm thoughts and prayers for this little girl. Hopefully infection is not getting the best of her. Come on little Hayley, we're all rooting and praying for you.

Vet administered fluids but Hayley isn't taking a bottle so she's being force fed with a syringe every hour on the hour. Vet wants at least 1 cc formula and nutri-cal mix per hour. But she has perked up some.

Oooh, I hope when she gets some more food into her her she remembers food is good. Poor baby.
