My Rescue

A week ago I was able to rescue an 8 week old kitten from out in the wilderness of my boyfriend's backyard. We had been watching these kittens grow up from birth and decided it was finally time to start gaining their trust. About a month ago we started feeding them everyday, along with them mom, and the mom trusted us instantly. I was able to catch the runt of the litter, a small dark gray and white kitten with black markings. One is all orange, and the other is white orange and gray, but these two are both fluffy. The black one isnt, which makes me think he takes after the dad. We think we were able to find a home for the others as well. It took me 3 hours on a screened in patio to get him to finally trust me enough to let me hold him comfortably.

Currently, Jade, my rescue, lives in my bathroom so he doesn't get lost in the house. I take him out every day and sit with him and play and carry him around the house. He's growing so fast and his eyesight is developing wonderfully. He loves to climb up my leg when I'm getting ready in the morning, stick his nose in my nostrils, bite my hair, and he really knows how to use those claws! He's also using the litter box all on his own, in less than a week! He's starting to eat hard food and is getting so rambunctious. I love it. Right now I'm looking for a playpen with a top so he can run around without me having to constantly hold him.

Here's the mommy cat, Sarah:



Here's the orange kitty:



And here's the white, gray, and orange kitty:




And here's my Jade.

That's one beautiful mommy cat.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

Re: My Rescue

We're trying to find homes for them all now, they're all so adorably sweet!!

The kittens are still a little skittish but the mommy will rub all over you once she gets accustomed to you.

They're all so cute :]

*THUD!* Cuteness overload!! Cuteness overload!! Cuteness overload!! May day! May day! Man down! Man down! times 2.

If we hadn't adopted a new kitten 3 weeks ago, I too would be finding a way
to come and get Sarah and the orange, gray and white one. As it is, our
new little guy is quite a handful. Jade is beautiful as well. Okay, Okay, they're
all beautiful. Have fun with them as they all grow up so fast.

Re: My Rescue

He's getting so hyper lately! I guess he's getting to that playful kitty stage where he can't sit still for more than 2 minutes.

Thank you for all your kind comments. :] I love my outdoor and indoor babies. :]
