and of course then this happened

Earlier this fall a homeless woman came into the spay/neuter clinic that the rescue uses. She had a mom cat with 5 kittens. Mom was VERY underweight and the clinic called our rescue to help. Unfortunately all but one kitten did not survive and this little girl was supplemented for weeks to keep her alive. Mom was nursing but didn't have the resources to provide everything the kitten needed.

Mom fell in love with this pair over a period of time and would love on them when she went through the intake part of the rescue. With the Texas kittens back at the rescue, mom asked to take this pair. She brought them home on Wednesday. The mom cat enjoyed stretching out and the kitten ran around in circles for about 15 minutes.

Mom cat is very tiny and we suspect she is pretty young. The kitten is 8 weeks old (as of 12/11) and SO tiny at 1 pound 3 ounces. The joke is she will be 6 months old before she can be spayed.

  6. Mom is so tiny!!! I can't imagine all she went through trying to keep her kittens alive. I hate when people try to tell me cats can fend for themselves in the "wild." This case shows that to not be true. I'm glad you're caring for Mom and kitty now - they deserve the very best - especially after that rough start.

  13. Wow, yes, the mother-cat looks like a kitten herself. No more kittens for her, though. Life gets better from here on in.
