Hi everyone!

I've been feeding a stray kitty and his Mommy for a few months.. Last night, as I was going to top up their bowl with biscuits for the night.. I found a little sumthing in the bowl..... I think its the little kitties...

This the stray, I named Potty, coz he hides and sleeps in the neighbour's plants...


This here is the little treasure I found in his bowl of biscuits...


Another picture....

aw!! heehee! I love that expression. Like he looked up from his meal, saw the camera, and asked "WHAT is THAT?" ~laughs~ I didn't know that kittens went through a set of milk or baby teeth. Is that normal for him to be dropping teeth? If not then maybe the bisquits are too hard for him? It's probably normal but I just thought I'd check. What awesome patterning, too! :D

How sweet of you to feed those stray kitties! :D
We found one of Velvet's baby teeth. I wasn't even aware that cats had baby teeth. Ended up calling the vet to make sure it was ok that she lost a tooth. I can be a very fretful mommy! :roll:

He's a cutie, hey! Yeah, I've never found a cat's tooth before... I keep Marbles's whiskers though.. coz they seem hard to come by... hehe.
The little guy is still a little 'skittish' about being touched or handled. He'll only let me pat him under his mommy's supervision. Strangely, his mom doesn't like him around. She'll hiss at him when he gets too close. But I guess, she thinks he's old enough to be on his own and the fact that she looks like she could be expecting another litter...

The poor guy.... I would want to take him in but he's still a little nervous and I don't want to force him. Anyways, I think he likes being free... But as soon as I can handle him freely, I'd like to get him neutered (we have too many strays in Singapore) and get him vaccinated and perhaps get him a collar...so the authorities would take him as a stray... even though he is.

I've been trying to get a picture of his mom but she only comes around at night... but just imagine Potty as a sweet female. She has the same coloring but smaller spots on her back... like cow prints! And she has lovely Aqua-colored eyes with black eyeliner like Cleopatra. :D

PS: I have more pics of him on my webshots site.

Are you going to keep the handsome little guy, LiCieWishy?
Oh, and by the way, I know how it feels to see so many strays (cats or dogs) in the streets. It breaks my heart every time.

This little kitty is actually at my bf's place. <<)) And my cat Marbles is at my place. So, if I wanted to keep the little guy, he'd have to be moved to my place, coz my bf's sis is not too keen on animals. :( So... I guess we'll see how things go. He's just starting to get used to being handled. Remember I mentioned in my earlier post that he wouldn't let me touch him unless his mom was around? Well, just this afternoon he let me play with him... So that's a pretty good sign... :wink: I even tried to clean him up a little with baby wipes... but he's pretty clean for a stray... even in his ears!

I want to given him some worming medication but I can only find them in pills and paste form (Pet stores here are crappy....). Going to try the paste one ..... I wonder if he'll notice that his food taste a little different..

wow, you are a good person for looking after this lucky guy and his mom. i think that's fantastic. keep it up! and definately get him spayed; he'll only end up making more unwanted kitties... AND find him a home, too! it breaks my heart to see so many strays.

It's very nice of you to feed a stray! But I 'highly' recommed you catching her and getting her spayed before she has any more kittens. Beleive me, all my cats came from 1 little producer.... Until we caught her and got her spayed. We let her back outside, which we probably shouldnt have done because she disappeared after that. I've tamed wild cats before, and you just let them get comfy around you. Leave food close to where they hide, and (naturally) they won't be litter trained for a while.

Potty is doing well, I gave him some flea treatment yesterday and he's allowed me to groom him. He still doesn't liked being picked up but I'm working on it. pickinghim up a little bit when I'm playing with him. Hopefully, he'll realise that I can be fully trusted and mean no harm. Then I'll feel comfortable bringing him away to the vet for treatments. I was taking some pictures.. here's some. ENJOY! :D


So young... So angry....

Rahh.....the monster emerges..

Awwwwwwwwwww...... Too cute...I cannot believe it's a stray cat.
I am in library at the moment and trying my best to not touching the computer screen.

I have a stray cat too, Lucky. When I found her she suffered from something that could kill her, not to mention the number of fleas she got. She has a lot of weird habits though, like sleeping inside a plastic bag. Does Potty have any weird habit?
