Meet baby Pepe my ER baby.

A kind citizen found a litter of 4 kittens, alone and starving to death. He brought them to the Evet and they were given fluids and bottle fed. The citizen could not keep them so 2 were released to another shelter and sadly one died. The 4th one was brought to our shelter where he was bottle fed and once weaned, given to me for care.

This little guy was all skin and bones and NEEDY! He cried and cried in his kennel for attention - and who can blame him. I was only 4 weeks old, alone and frightened. Foster momma Marcia swooped in and took him home and continued to care for him. It was touch and go the first 2 weeks, as he was not a big solid food eater so I mixed it with KMR and that helped. At one point I had to give him subQ fluids to perk him up and that helped him turn the corner. Today he is about 7 weeks old and plump and happy and playful! I'm glad he made it!
Bottom pic is shortly after I took him home. Look at those sad little eyes!!

Oh my goodness.

He's a lucky one to end up with you taking care of him. Is he the only kitten chez Marcia right now?

Have you named him?

Never mind - just saw your post in Cat Tails! I should have known that there couldn't be only one kitten...
