Re: Adorable Black Kittens

Over forty years ago now I played surrogate mum to three little kittens. I got them when their mother (who lived at the yard at hubby's work) got run over. They were ten days old. Two tabbies and one mostly white with tabby patches. I called them Freeman, Hardy and Willis.

They were so helpless. They looked like baby rats. They had to be fed, encouraged to poop, cleaned up and put into clean bedding every two hours - round the clock! Willis had a problem with his waterworks and used to wee all over the other two, which didn't help the bedding problem.

I got special bottles shaped like a banana. A little teat was attached at the business end and the flow of food had to be controlled at the top end with my thumb. Biggest problem was that I couldn't go anywhere - just finished the first round and cleared up, and the two hours was up again. They didn't like being washed, but all of them loved being dried, sitting in the palm of my hand and dried with a hair dryer! They used to virtually preen!

It got easier of course as they got older, although the vet thought at one time that Willis might have to be circumcised to cure his wee problem! Fortunately, he grew out of it.

Hardy and Willis went to good homes at twelve weeks old, but Freeman (white and tabby) didn't find a home until he was about twenty weeks old. I had more or less decided to keep him as by this time my two other cats had accepted him, although there was deep resentment in the beginning.

I do admire you people out there who look after these helpless little kittens, as I know what is involved. But it is so satisfying to see them thrive and grow.

I hope a good home is found soon for the little brothers.

Maisie

Re: Adorable Black Kittens

I'd like to thank Mert for taking these two babes as he did but as the days went on, everything that could have gone wrong for him with work etc. did just that and the babes had to come back.

Needless to say, their mother was overjoyed to see them home and they are all doing very well, along with the 5 large dogs that are at this house.

The boys are nearly 12 weeks old now
They are being regularly fed from monies that we consistently raise for the street cats and in another couple of months we will have them speyed from the same funds. The man that owns these animals has massive problems at the moment but fortunately a very good friend of his has moved into his home so that the dogs and cats are fully looked after during his abscense so they all remain healthy and their routine is unchanged until their owner's return, hopefully in the not too far distant future.

We still need a permanent home for these boys and although I thank you for your post Michelle, I feel that in this instance you can't do anymore than is already being done for them apart from maybe donating to the fund.

I'll also take this opportunity of thanking all of you that live around the Side area for supporting our book sales from the office here along with the table-top sales from which the cash is raised to keep on doing this work.
It wouldn't be possible without your help.

Hello Michelle, The greater percentage of the books that support our 'Cat Fund' are dealt with from my office on Side Boulevard. You can't miss it, I'm about 150mts down the road from the Anadolu Hospital, the same distance from The Side Princess Hotel if you're coming from the coastal side.
2 bookshelves outside on the terrace because we're well supported not only from people that are resident here but also from the tourists that need something to read by the pool, on the beach or even at the airport.

Come along and have a coffee, there's always an open welcome.
