Kittens, Kittens and more Kittens!

Posted by Rachel on August 29, 2015 at 9:05 PM

About a year ago after rescuing dogs and more dogs along with cats and realizing that we were getting double the calls for cats then dogs, we made the decision to change our focus and narrow to feral cats and bottle babies. We have had a very busy year with this change and hope to continue our work doing TNR and reducing the amount of feral babies and bottle babies.

The hardest animals to foster are the bottle babies. Most people do not realize how much work has to go into raising these precious babies. From the day someone finds them until the day they are adopted, the foster bottle feeder mom plays the rolls as the kittens mom. These kittens need round the clock care until they are about 5 weeks old and can start to eat on their own. From day one of getting a batch of babies I count down the days until the kitten will be old enough to eat on his/her own as that means their chance of survival increases drastically. Up until that point there is about a 50% chance that they kittens will survive, which can be a depressing but motivating thought when raising the kittens. Unfortunately when I have had several bottle feeders pass away over the years. The kittens that make it are the most loving kittens because they think they are people and just want to lay on top of you, play with you and purr their little hearts out. Sometimes they can be so loving towards people that my other cats become a bit jealous of them and have to show them how to be cats and not people. They eventually find their place in the "herd" as I refer to as a pack of domestic cats and lead a happy long life.

If you are interested in learning about bottle feeders or helping us with these tiny precious lives, then please contact us at (yes, our email is back up working now!!! yay!)

This condition is quite tied to the reproductive system and may have several causes like a response to injury or abnormal the circulation of blood inside the testicles. Use these circumspectly however, as they may lower blood sugar, which can be an undesirable effect in males whose blood sugar are properly balanced.
