Camera Critters/Update on fostering

Please click on side bar and join others for some great animals from around the world

I want to thank everyone for there kind words and prayers for our 23 yr old TC, remarkably she is still eating, walking and drinking, although i do feed her out of a syringe in between what she eats and drinks. She is holding her own. For awhile she wouldn't eat on her own,but she tries when she smells the food, always was big on people food and i guess she says she isn't ready to give that up yet. What a fighter she is.
Also i don't know if you have heard on the news about a blind Cat Named Cougar who took in babies that she is helping to raise. Anyway Lisa is a RV Friend of mine who has the babies go check out her blog and see this beautiful cat and kittens and keep track or there growth. Cougar's Blog

Well I thought I would update you all from my kitty family.
Here is a recent photo of Avery the baby that Momma Cat had this winter who brought them to me from below zero temps this Dec. Yes i have not been able to find her a home, she will now live with us. Isn't she a beautiful?


And here is Boo Boo, she is the one i had decided to keep from the beginning she is still very very small, she loves to sit here on my lap and watch me type to ya all, she loves to put her paws on the screen. Boy does she mess my puter up at times.
Now for my Volunteering for CRAFT the no kill shelter. Here is a update on Shelby if you were here last week for CC you can check out her story, a quick recape on her, she was not eating had these two beautiful babies actually 3 but the owner of the cat had taken it to the Humane Society but it died,Anyway Shelby just had these babies a few days before she was captured and brought to me, she would not eat or drink. I force fed her and force water to her, Pediolyte mostley and she did get a the IV fluids for a couple of days. Well i am happy to say that Shelby finally this Wednesday started eating and drinking on her own, I am so happy with her progress. And even tho she doesn't have much milk babies are doing just great along with my bottle feeding them. And also yesterday they started to open there eyes. Babies are going to be adorable. Now if i can get her to be not so skittish when i try to get her to move....



So in the meantime one of the other foster homes had what they believe to be either Shelby's sister or could be her mother, anyway she gave birth to 3 babies while in there care. But again she too would not eat, she was failing and also same thing not much milk, so they were bottle feeding the babies as well. But the lady works all day and with these babies they need to be fed more on a regular basis, and with momma cat not in good health and not eating she needed to be force fed. So i volunteered to take her and the babies in till they all get on there feet. So please meet
Sammie and her 3 babies.
She is not eating and is much more difficult to force feed then Shelby was. But we are making progress, i just got her on Thurs. And feeding her about every 2 to 3 hours, mostly concentrating on the fluids and then food. They brought me a big cage and so i can keep the babies separated a bit easier so momma can get a bigger break in between the feedings. They are taking the bottle pretty good now, so that will help momma a lot.

All these cats are so pretty I love them. I wish I could own a cat but my home isn't big enough for one to be able to exist with Delila peacfully. Albee dosen't mind cats though.

I had tears in my eyes as I read about your GREAT big heart. They are lucky to be in your care even for a little while. Avery is a cutie and Boo Boo looks like Millie Willie that we had a few years back but with short hair. Peace be with the care giver.

Arlene said...

They are so cute and adorable creatures! The top kitties have nice dark colors and the lil kitties are just so cute.

Happy CC!

Loved reading about your cats! We just lost our Briley who was 14 a couple of weeks ago, from kidney failure. We have gone from 6 cats when we first moved here to 3.

Avery was always my favorite of the ones you took in! I am SO GLAD you kept him!!!

Keep up the good work!!!!

Hugs,
Char

I am glad TC is doing better. The photos are great. I so miss baby's around. Shelby is gorgeous.
I went through the dehydration of mom and the kids in the early 80's I was sad.
