Getting 3 foster kittens

My sisters friends boss who I will call G I guess breeds bobtails or something. Her female got out and bred with a stray male. So she had 3 long tailed cats in the litter. I guess she told my sisters friend we will call O that she is going to throw them out for the coyotes. So O told G I might foster and not to do that. O called me and gave me G's number. I called G explaining I will foster but I'm not equipped to bottle feed so at 8 weeks I will come get them so they can interact with mom and the litter ans learn some things. She said she will mot be wasting her time with them that long. She said she will only keep them as long as 5 1/2 weeks after that if I don't have them she will throw them in the woods. Honestly after talking to this women and finding out more about her it wouldn't surprise me. There 5 days old today. I'm kitten proofing ny room now. I will have a large crate for them to be in at first until 8 weeks. Casey will not be able to interact with them until 8 weeks and that will be with strict supervision. I will let her meet them through the crate to get to know them. Will have a vet visit scheduled to check them out and once I know there healthy and strong will begin looking for homes. Going to be a long few months in this house,lol. At almost 6 weeks I'm guessing they will be big enough for wet food. I'm going to buy milk replacment for them to lap up till about 6 1/2 weeks.

DicesMom,
OMG! This is so sad...It wouldn't surprise me if this was a back yard breeder! To have so little compassion for both the mama cat and her kittens...
To throw the kittens out?
Sooooo glad you're stepping up to the plate to help these wee ones!up:up:
You know you'll get lots of help here from willing 'aunties and uncles'!!

How disgusting people can be Thank you so much for what you are doing to help these kittens. I will never understand the heartlessness of some people. Never ever, in a million years.

Yes I don't understand people I'm definitely going to have to do some money crunching as kittens are not cheap but I can do it. One is possibly going to stay with me if I find one that has a personality to fit with my clan,lol. I am told all are black and white. I'm trying to get a pic of them so I can start seeing if a family is interested.

I also though the bobtail gene was recessive so even if you breed bobtail/bobtail you will still get long tails? Maybe my science is wrong but it makes me wonder how many kittens she has "gotten rid of".

I know I really hope I'm wrong but I doubt it. I'm trying to get pics from O when she next sees G and I will share them on here

My cousin may already be interested in one. She had a cat a few years ago and she sadly got out and hit She might have her husband talked into another cat. He only wants a male though and I'm not sure what these kitten are....and probably won't until I get them.
