Kittens anyone?

2 May

How was everyone’s weekend? Great I hope.

Well I really don’t have anything interesting to blog about but I do have some cute kitty pictures how about I show you that.

TCI Master found some kittens outside about a week ago and brought them in so we could take them to the shelter. But it turns out that the shelter wouldn’t  guarantee  that they wouldn’t be put to sleep, since the kittens are so small still and need to be bottle fed we were told that they just don’t have the time or man power to take care of them.  Both of us being the animal lovers that we are decided to take on the role of foster parents.  How could we not?  Just look at them.

Fostering cats and kittens has its rewards as well as its drawbacks.

First of all we had to bath them several times since they were infested with fleas and we didn’t want the dogs to get fleas. Have you ever tried picking fleas from a wiggling kitty? Not as easy as the monkeys make it look. We couldn’t use flea dip since they are to young.

You need to have lots of patience and  the physical stamina to tend to their physical needs, which  include bottle-feeding newborns around the clock every two-three hours. I got the night shift which drove me up a wall. I felt my nerves starting to crack their little cries are torturing especially in the middle of the night. TCIMaster had the day shift also very draining but not as much as the night shift when one is trying to get some sort of shut eye.

Then there is the act  of making  them go to the bathroom, you have to stimulate them to pee. Mommy cats lick their booties to make them go. Let me tell you kitten booty not so tasty (yuck). They are finally starting to use a litter box so that good news, I don’t know how much longer my tongue was going to last.





They are now starting to run, slip and slide everywhere. They love following us everywhere and running in between our feet. Its gotten so bad that we end up performing acrobatic acts just to avoid stepping on them. Little buggers move quickly and they love climbing up our legs. Have you ever tried using the bathroom with a kitten trying to climb up your leg? Its not a pretty sight that’s for sure.  Needless to say our legs are full of tiny kitten scratches as well as our hands and arms. TCIMaster even has a scratch on his nose! 

They are taking over the place! They have even taken over the doggy beds, which makes for very moody pups. I’m sure the doggies will be happy to see them leave and get their bed back.


They should be ready to be adopted in a week or two. Meanwhile we get the joy of watching them play and grow. If anyone would like one let me know, of course you will need to live somewhere in southern California and now I can hear them crying , its time for their next feeding and if I don’t hurry my legs and fingers will pay the price for not attending to them quickly enough.

    They are so cute! Good for you and TCI for taking care of them! I took care of two foster kittens once in my bathroom (so my last cat wouldn’t try to kill them) and they ended up having worms! Now that is a disgusting thing to deal with! At least your puppies are tolerant of them. I love the pictures of the kitties taking over the dog bed!

      So far these kittys are worm free 🙂
