Meet the new guests at Casa de Gato


Yesterday I teased you with this photo


That is because I brought home some new kittens. I knew the time for the girls was coming to an end so I wrote into the shelter and asked for new kittens. I was told there was a mom with three week kittens. My intention was to bring her home and bring the girls back later on this week.

When I got there, I learned that she had been sitting in the shelter since giving birth, so I am glad I could get her out of there. When I held the kittens they felt light for their size and mom felt dehydrated. The shelter gave her some fluids and I brought her home. I set her up in the cage in the kitten room and covered it with a towel. I assumed that since she had been at the shelter she would be okay with that, but it became apparent pretty quickly that she wasn't. So I brought her and the kittens upstairs and put her in my bath tub.


Unfortunately what had ever caused her to be dehydrated was still going strong because she wasn't eating.  I gave her some more fluids several times and brought her back to the shelter for a check up on Sunday and they gave her some more. She seems fine, bright eyed and attention seeking, but she isn't eating.  Once the girls were back at the shelter I cleaned up the kitten room and brought her down to the kitten room. She spent about an hour examining the room and walking around. I found out she is a nipaholic..


The kittens are a little small for their age. I have started supplementing them. That is going very well for three of the four of them. The fourth, the biggest black male kitten, wants nothing to do with it. That is okay since he feels hefty for his size which leads me to believe that his nipple is still producing a good supply of milk. This, of course, means he has no use for me while the other ones love me and purr easily.  I am so going to enjoy these guys. The girl already reminds me of Muffin.

Mom has started to eat a little, which is nice. Hopefully this goes smoothly from here on in. If not, that is okay, I can continue to supplement and give fluids and do what needs to be done.
