Here is a pic of Obi, Wicket and Chewie's sibling Waldo, crashed with his buddy Dingo (rescued from a neighbor's backyard):



And Lester, older kitten of about three months, rescued just two days ago - a real purring machine, he kept following me and meowing today, then he would knead the floor every time I would bend down to pet him... rrrrrrr he is so lovey :oops:



My friend was supposed to keep Leiah renamed Waldo, and Dingo, but she wants me to try and find them a great home where they would go together. Waldo is really playful and trusting, very snuggly too. Dingo is a bit scaredy, but is warming up fast.

Lester will need a home very soon too, when he gets fixed along with the rest of the brood. I can't believe this little guy was rescued from the street, he is SO loving and trusting, it's amazing.

Anyone in need of a kitten? :wink:

Uhhh, not even close. :lol: But they sure are cute. In the top pic, is the kitty in the front the sibling to star wars kitties? If so, he looks like Obi.

Orange kitty is super cute!! Check him for acne...or did he just drink some milk? :wink:

Yes he is Obi's brother - it was funny when I got them: two fluffy kitties, and two short-haired lookalikes!

Yes I think he has some acne, I noticed him scratching his lips yesterday, so today I brought my Hibiclens with me, and gave him the same treatment I gave Mew - hopefully it will help clear it out fast, along with plenty of good food. I will also give him some Advantage and try to deworm him, he is thin as a rake, poor baby. :?

I think I'd rather have my eyes poked out! :lol: I had to stop my daily errands and come home twice today to feed the kittens. I had asked a question about a product in the pet store, but the girl didn't know the answer. She's like "I can page someone from that department" and my response was "Thanks, but don't worry about it, I have 5 hungry babies at home waiting to be fed." Her eyes got huge and then I had to explain that i was bottle feeding kittens. I'm done, done, done, done, done!!!

Lester is adorable, I'm sure you'll fix him right up!

Took more pics of the babies today...


Pictures really don't do Dingo justice, he is the cutest kitten - he has got thigh high white socks on his rear legs, huge ears and the saddest eyes... he finally realized today that being picked up and petted was great, but he will still run away from me every now and then... silly kitten!


Waldo is a little better today, I washed his eyes and nose with saline solution, and poured some down his nostrils to try and relieve his congested nose. He could breathe his mouth shut for a while after that, but when I left he was back to breathing with his mouth slightly open... poor baby, I hope the Lysine will help him feel better fast, he is SO cute and lovey... he purrs up a storm and grabs my face with his little paws when I cradle him in my arms and pet his belly :love2


Lester is purry and clingy and meowy and super friendly... he was purring as I was washing his nose and disinfecting his chin (he apparently has some feline acne)! One of his eyes often appears more open than the other, although I checked closely and could see no sign of irritation... any idea what it could be? Makes him look freaky on some pictures 8O
Like this one:


Apart from that I am stuffing their faces big time, they all need to put on some weight, they are pretty thin, and lack that cute kitten round belly... Ah if only I had room for them at home!!! :?

Herpes can cause a lopsided squint like that. So if you are giving him lysine it will probably do him some good. And, Goodness, Nini, get with the program, they have taters in their ears. :wink: No seriously, you are doing so much for them, you have been busy, busy taking care of all these kitties. You are going to be quite experienced after all of this!

HAHA - funny you should mention it, because I did notice it today and made a mental note of cleaning their ears tomorrow :lol:

At home the furries get their ears cleaned by Mew, who has a ear-chewing-and-licking fetish, so I am not used to seeing brown smears in there...

I wish my friend has bought some Drontal before she left, I don't like to have to wait til next week to deworm Lester and give Waldo and Dingo their second round... having too many kitties really can make one negligent - she is so overwhelmed that a lot of things are getting left behind (which irritates the neat-freak that I am 8O )

...as to the squinty eye...

Take note if it happens all the time, only the R eye...
...or when his whiskers on that side are touching something, like in the two pics you posted. :wink:

Ooooh now that's a good suggestion!! I will watch him tomorrow, I sure hope it's not due to his being sick... his eye looked okay, just always less open than the other. Thanks! :D

Nini, is it possible the kittens have ear mites? I always check for black specks if I suspect mites. I would clean them with oil, just in case. If they're scratching, it's a possibility. I'm probably not telling you anything new, I know, but you're a busy lady! :)

Thank you for the advice :)

I did check today, they have a few smears of brown wax in their ears, but nothing similar to the ground coffee appearance of mites. I haven't seen them scratch their ears at all either. I guess they are just dirty, I will take my ear cleaner with me tomorrow - too bad these little guys don't have bigger cats keeping their ears clean with rough tongues!

Interesting. I have NEVER seen a cat squint because his whiskers where touching something. Do your cats do this?

I know it could mean so many things, but when Cleo's third eyelid was showing like Lester's (Cleo's was showing much more), it was parasites. it just took one Drontal tablet to take care of it (thank goodness).
