With the happy kittens adopted and Huzzah back at the rescue, the foster room was empty and clean.
Well we can't have that, so mom mentioned Wednesday night that we were ready for more kittens. We help other rescues when we can and on Tuesday we took in some cats and kittens from a rescue in Texas.
This group is 1 male and 3 females. They are also a hot mess. The rescue in Texas had them in their care for over a month. They came in underweight, with parasites and also had mange (which is a mite that attacks the skin, especially in animals that are in poor condition). The kittens were treated before transport, but they look rough. Underweight, small for their age and seriously flaky skin. Hopefully with some good nutrition and time they will be back in good shape and ready for new homes. They are a little reserved when mom is in the room, but it has been a tough few days for them so it isn't too surprising. Mom can hear them playing while she works though so she knows they are out and checking out the room. They are all black and white - two more with tuxedo markings than the other two.
It is an unfortunate lesson that is learned the hard way - late season kittens are usually in much worse shape. But no matter their past, they were rescued and are now here and getting back in good shape.
Mom thinks she has a name plan...just wants to take a couple of days to see if they stick.
