Meet the Chapel Hill kittens

Meet our six newest kittens - the Chapel Hill kittens. They are nine weeks old but the size of five week old kittens.  They were covered in fleas and full of parasites.  You can feel most of their bones but they are very social and will do great with medical care and nutritious food. 

This is how several of us spent our Friday evening last week - bathing kittens (several times as the smell was overwhelming), flea combing and picking off fleas, cleaning ears, clipping claws, starting eye meds and intestinal parasite meds.  The amazing thing is pictures went up on Facebook page Friday evening and three kittens already have applications in on them (the two Siamese females and the orange female, and someone has expressed interested in the flame point mix male and the two tabby males)!

Below are just a few pictures, but we have a full album on our Kitten Alley Facebook page

We were contacted by CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education) about a situation in Chapel Hill that they were working on - we worked with them on the Siler City cats).  Elderly lady in Chapel Hill who's not physically able to leave her home and is a shut-in. Started with just a few cats a few years ago and grew to 26, all living in a small trailer. We took in the kittens and two of the almost 1-year cats (we may be taking in two more of the almost 1-year olds). CARE (Chatham Area Rescue and Education) is coordinating the effort. Like with the Siler City rescue plea, Alley Cats and Angels was the first rescue to step up and offer to take cats in. If we can find more foster homes for the older cats, we can take some more in.
