Baby Mama and Her Kittens


Meet Little Flash 2
======================

This Story Tells the Vital Importance of Preparing A Box
For Mama Cats Days Before They Give Birth!!

(and introducing it to them)
 
My mother's neighbor has a woman and her daughter renting the back bedroom and basement of her house. They have a very little kitty girl who had six kittens on Monday. A box wasn't prepared ahead of time for Mama and her babies. (Note: I had been in touch with the neighbor about the kitty but didn't give enough advice about having a box ready nor brought one over yet.)

Monday morning, when they found her giving birth in the litter box in the cold basement, they put her in a kennel without any blankets... poor little ones did not nurse immediately and after she gave birth to them all, Katie huddled in the opposite corner from her little ones, rejecting her babies.

My mother's neighbor called me, that Katie was rejecting her babies. By the time I arrived to help (I had to run to pet store to get formula and syringes), someone had finally placed mama and babies on a blanket in a shallow box. 


Sweet little Katie curled around her babies, trying to get them warm. Luckily she had eaten all but one of the placentas to gain back her strength.

Katie huddled around five of her kittens, yet one of the kittens was alone, wet from birth, cold and unresponsive. I picked up the lone kitten and fed him milk replacement with syringe, stimulated his tummy. Took lots of gentle rubbing with a towel before he finally made a sound and squirmed in my hand. I placed him with her other kittens. Yet they too were not very warm and I couldn't tell if all her mammary glands had milk... I checked the other kittens and gave the colder ones some milk by syringe and placed them back with mama. I also fed Katie milk from the syringe. She drank two half syringes full and then settled down with her babies.


Little Flash 2
I went across the street to my mother's home for a better box with high ends. When I returned, the babies were dry and warmer with fuller tummies.
I checked on the little one that I saved... he was doing well. Three boys and three girls. Three are smoky black and three are grey and white. One of the kitties has a "G" or a "C" shape on her back. And the little one I saved has a white mark on his back, just like Flash who went OTRB two weeks ago.


Please keep these little ones and their Mama in your purrz and prayers...

Katie will need help taking care of her six little ones. I may end up looking after mama and her babies very soon if they are all going to survive. This many babies - little Katie and her six children are going to need lots of nutrition and attention.

Flash The Hero Cat Is Gone OTRB

(Update: yet I came back at just the right miraculous moment that CPR brought him back long enough for him to say goodbye, I love you.)


Flash, my brother's neighbor's cat is gone. He died yesterday at 2:19pm. Of all our neighbor's cats, he was the only one who loved hanging out at our house, visiting our cats and eating with them. He was our Joey's half brother.


I hadn't been feeling well since early Sunday morning, some kind of cold. I had not been to my brother's house until yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon.

I came over to find Flash under my brother's truck in the front yard, cold and unresponsive, foam in his mouth... I tried to revive him - CPR - he came back long enough to look at me, so slowly licked the foam from his lips, then he was gone. 

We don't know what happened. My brother last saw him Monday morning. Flash was walking slowly back to his house. My brother hurried off to work, thinking I would be over later to let him inside... (and I could have - I was getting over the cold. Something told me I needed to go over but I didn't listen. Instead I was disheartened about needing help for an elderly woman's cats.)

Brother didn't text me to let Flash in, he didn't let me know that Flash didn't show up when he got home from work...that Flash was missing...that he didn't see Flash Tuesday morning.

Goodbye Baby, We let you down.
You were only 3 years old.
Until we meet again, OTRB.
Psalm 36:6-7
"Oh Lord You save both man and beast,
Great is your unfailing love."
==================



My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow
For the only one I love
When shall I see him, oh, no, never
Till we meet in heaven above

Oh, bury me beneath the willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me...
