I welcome you to my passion--the working hard to save the life of a tiny innocent kitten who cannot help what life has handed it. This blog will allow me to share my daily tales, joys, heartbreaks, memories and many moments of love. You can share my life one day at a time.

When I got home during my lunch break I opened the door to the bedroom. The mom Fariah was not in the 2' x 4' cage which was empty. Then I saw she had moved all 6 babies to the comforter on the bed. She looked really content and proud of herself. I had to use a few pillows to prop up the edges of the comforter as the babies are more mobile than you would think and I don't want them to fall off the bed. I am going to put blankets on the floor in case one falls off. My 3 babies are now named. The black and white boy is Joplin, the gray female is Jessa and the gray and white female is Java. The babies are doing well. I weigh all of them at least 4 times a day and record their weights. The vet wanted me to bottle feed to help mom out and make sure that the mom is making enough milk with her mastitis. So I am still busy with babies though I have to admit I let the mom take the night shift. Once the babies are stable and not needing a bottle any more they will go back to the first foster home. I don't want to let them go but Maxine really wants her babies back. Mom has accepted my 3 babies into her family so of course the babies should be with a mom who walks on 4 legs. A furry mom trumps a human mom. I love all the babies so much that my heart is going to break when they leave my house.
