MORE kittens? (Update - we have genders!)
I am so angry right now I can hardly type! Anyone who reads the ferals board probably saw my post on tracking a nursing female? Well i found her litter today. Under a step in the complex.
I left them there in hopes that momma wouldn't move them, and went back to double check a half hour or so ago. Well, she hadn't moved them, but someone had drenched the nest! Someone poured/sprayed water into the hole trying to drown or freeze these poor babies!
Obviously when i saw that I couldn't leave them there to freeze, so I got my BF to help and I snatched the babies.
There are now 10 KITTENS in my house! OMG, so many babies.
These guys are about 2 1/5 weeks old, putting them a few days behind Leda's litter. I need you guys to understand that FIV isn't a problem in my area, I've only ever heard of one cat who got it, and they moved from Ontario with their cat. I'm going to put 2 kittens to Leda for her to nurse along with hers, I have a woman who's offered to foster 2, and it looks like i'm fostering the last 2 myself. *deep breath*
I can't believe I'm doing this again so soon!!! I'm crazy!
I just couldn't leave them there to be drowned...I feel so bad that my finding them led to this awful mess. I had to take them in.
Hopefully I'll be able to get enough money to spay momma right away, or at least within the next month or so...Wish me luck guys!
(oh, and I'll post pics soon for you, they're wet (from their bath) but cute!)
