As i posted last week i said i was going to add photos of the new babies that were brought to me last week, so here are the 4 cuties that i have.
As some of you may have read, we lost our 23 yr old TC on Friday, I want to thank all that left there condolences. After i got back home from the vets with having to deal with her, i came home to one of the black babies laying totally still, she was not doing well at all. It scared the heck out of me as she was fine when i left. To make a long story short, when CRAFT was contacted about these kitties they had no idea how long the babies had been without food and there momma as she was run over. The people didn't know how to raise baby kittens..... so they gave them cold milk, also they didn't know that you have to wipe there little bottoms to make them potty. Well we weren't sure what the problem was, but she also ended up having a convulsion, so i gave her Karo syrup to get some sugar in her system. All i kept thinking is i can't loose two cats in one day. Anyway baby kittens can dehydrate very quickly, so i gave her sugar water every 30 minutes just to keep the fluids in her. Laurel came by and brought me different milk as we also thought maybe the can dry food may be tainted as it was a milk product, and the gal that had brought it to feed Sammy's babies had it for a while. Anyway we both didn't think she would make it thru the night. But as i continued to feed every 30 minutes i went back out to feed at 2 am and by golly that little girl was sitting up and giving me the water for and wanting food.I could not believe that she made it, what a little fighter she was. She also is the smallest of them all,which is why she was effected first, as now the others have taken there turn in being sick although now we sort of know what to treat, so they are on antibiotics hopefully will get better. Boy they sure have gone through a rough time. And i was in real need of some sleep last night. This little orange cat was the second to come down with it. But last night she finally came around and wanted to eat.

Cute ones, I love the black cat..can I have him? hehehe...there's this belief here that if one has a black cat at home that the owner is a witch, and I'd love to have one black cat to make my neighbors believe am a witch and will drive them away, hahahaha...am such a mischief.

What cute kitties to be so sickly. When I come to Bend, I will stop by and help you feed some kitties. I have now put Oregon on my bucket list.
Your beautiful tribute to TC made tears run down my cheeks. 23 is a long life and TC made all the nine lives because of your love. Peace
