ONe kitten yesterday scared me to pieces. I went in to check, Hyia was at a movie with a friend's family. All 4 were laying on top of this one, at first I thought she was missing. When I touched her, she stretched out a paw, I reached down and picked her up, set her down and she fell over. I felt sick and picked her up, no response. I shook her lightly, nothing. I stroked her, nothing, I checked her gums, pink and moist, ears pink, belly not distended, I held her to my ear, no sticky lungs, no ticking, no gasping for breath, nothing. I brought her in and put her under a lamp, her head was wobbly, I thought stop poking at her, I hate it when people just keep poking when something is passing, I left her under the lamp and made phone calls. I am crying, I can't help it, I feel awful because I have no idea what was wrong. She would seem to revive amd then again, seemed too weak for anything. I called my Mom because I always call my Mom when I am a mess. WHich I was. This is when I know how post stress I am, I just don't handle things like this anymore, not after last week with all the hospital, and other issues. I think Why did I get into this. I don't lose them, EVER. I didn't even lose the last 4 parvo pups i worked with. Even that bad one. Why why why why.

TO make a very long story short, this kitten has a new name. IT's Resurrection. If Anyone can explain to me why that kitten was able to climb the mesh in 2 seconds flat, slam down her breakfast, ate some baby beef last night for the first time, I don't know. When it was over it was over. Th cat lady that is in charge of the kittens probably thinks I am a basket case. WHich might be true...but at least she is fine this morning, all are fat and fluffy and messy waiting for a great clean up because they are enjoying their formula mixed baby beef and purring in a pile. I will be glad when this is over. IN the meantime Hyia is happy as can be. And that counts too. School starts in a couple weeks, babies go back to staying all day with their Mama, and I might recover from this summer. I know one thing for sure, I am so tired it sint' funny. I am glad the Cat lady said go ahead and starte them on the beef. They will take more clean up, but less worry about warm enough, too cool, syringe wont' work right blah blah feedings. Soon as it warms up outside a bit, I am going to take their first baby portraits.

Lots and lots of clean up.
Still wet behind the ears (and on top of the head)...3 weeks old now.









This is Resurrection. Other wise known as Ressie

So glad the kitten pulled through and is okay. I know what good care you are taking of them. They are so adorable in the pics.

how scarey--do you think Ressie may have had a seizure? She sure looks lively in that picture!

It was a sit on NAna kind of rainy day. Heating pads for all that aches me is ok by me. They heal my heart all the way through.


After a bit of a bath for the kittens and a drying Aiden decided he was a kitten (this happens a lot) and so I had to dry him gentle gentle gently too. He is learning. I will only let him touch them with one finger, and only when I am holding them. Mostly he is to just watch them. I hold them to Baylee's cheek and she just about swoons. They are so soft. It's been a long time since I have been around kittens. I want this whole show to learn right from the beginning.

I don't think I am a fan of 3 week weaning, tho I was told to go ahead. Two, the white ones, just are not ready, and Gremlin as Aiden calls him, the darkest long haired one needs extra as well. I have never tried to add solids, albeit baby beef with formula added, at this age. What a mess. Sheeesh. Do a head count every morning and we are still all here.

My problem child. Resurrection. Everyone else has mastered licking up their food and milk, yet she still has a hard time drinking from the syringe. And forget a bottle. Or dipping your finger in it lower and lower until it is the saucer of milk, or putting it in the cup of your hand. I have tried everything I can think of and she will have nothing to do with the meat. She turns her head away from it. It takes 5 times as long to get food in her as it did the others when they were being bottle fed.
.
both white ones were difficult but this one her almost twin figured it out and not eats herself to a fat belly as it should be.
This is drying after clean up while I try to get sister asleep. 2 more days and the babies go back to staying with Mama and will be in their new home.

after dinner romp on their hollow log while clean up begins. What a mess. I finally got some meat in Ressurection by slurpinb some formula and some beef up the syringe. Just do meat, and she turns away. STill not as full as the others but she has a belly on her to sleep. Anyone want to play wash up a kitten? Hyia has the night off because she is having a sleep over at a friend's. video.
