I still haven't seen any signs of the little black kitten.
The little grey tabby (whom I have ascertained is definately a girl-kitty, and whom I've been calling Baby Kitty) is greatly enjoying my nice, warm guest bedroom and plenty of small meals for her delicate tummy (she's so skinny that I dare not give her too much in one sitting, and instead just spread it out into little meals many times a day). Baby Kitty and Nefertiti have been having semi-peaceful negotiations through the door, and Baby Kitty has proved to be quite the escape artist as I try to enter the room to care for her.
I gave her a bath just a little while ago; the water was literally brown as I was rinsing her.
I could also see the extent of her malnutrition, and I am surprised this little kitten is alive, let alone as lively and playful as she is. I have always said that Nef is a petite little kit-kat and could stand a little more meat on her bones; Baby Kitty makes Nef look positively obese
. I could count every one of her ribs, feel every bone in her spinal processes, and feel every hip bone. She looks like a skeleton with fur.
I've cleaned the gook out of her eyes with a warm towel; what is the best way to clean out her ears? She lets me look in her ears, and is overall pretty tolerant of me, but I don't know what the best way to go about cleaning them out is. They look absolutely filthy
Mitts and Tess, I'm not really sure how old she is; I will post pictures of her tomorrow and maybe someone can help me figure out her approximate age.
I'll be looking for organizations tomorrow that may be able to take her in and/or help me catch the little black kitten. He seemed friendly enough, so I am hoping that I will see him soon and he will come up for lovings and I can grab him. But, for now I am putting out food for him and hoping that he is ok. I will ask around about potentially getting a humane trap to catch him with.
