Bathing kittens


So the kittens are dealing with diarrhea just like their mom.  I clean them up and often before I can get them back in the box at least one of them has started pooping again.  Three of them have it fairly bad.  The wee little one's look alike has it the worse; his rear end is often quite red.



So I bring down a jug of warm water and pour it into a plastic shoe box and try to get the worst of it off and for the most part do a good job. They are not fans of it, but they don't react too badly. I think they dislike being dried off more.


I then put them in the smaller box so I can clean out the bedding in the larger box, and then transfer them back. It wears them out so they often take a nap.

  7. Love how they cuddle each other and they look very happy to be clean. Bless your heart...it's a lot of hard and constant work when it's such a large group! Paws crossed they will start feeling better soon.
