First Litter of the Season
Got our first litter of the season in from another shelter last week and my first litter with a mother. As a person who is used to orphans it is great to have a mom to help - had a person use to having a mom raise kittens taken this one in things would not have gone well.
Mama is not exactly feral - but she isn't really a stray. She wasn't at the other county shelter for too long, at best she would probably be dscribed as a wild farm cat. she doesn't bite - but she doesn't meow, she sometimes purrs when babies nurse but never when petted or fed. She will allow a pet or a soft scratch with the presentation of food but not a close up cuddle & she is young so she is a bit half way with kitten care as well. AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF SHE IS A TORTIE WITH AN ATTITUDE! Does anybody know where THAT comes from?!?
Kittens now have open eyes, reponding well to antibiotic ointment and gaing nicely (there are 5) not looking for any real answers just needed a chance to gripe a bit to those who get it.
On top of all that I got the sweetest black and white kitty - had to be under a year in 2 days ago - actually tempted to keep her she was so sweet - palpated her tummy - felt kittens - off to the vet she went today, vet said she was only 4 weeks in and wanted to spay and maybe even keep the cat (plz, plz, plz,) kinda makes me sad that miss maladjusted had her litter and miss wonderful won't - sounds stupid I know but well just yikes.
