So, some old lady had a stray cat that had kittens and the mama got killed by a dog. The kittens are around three and a half weeks old I think; slightly older than Milly's.
She was asking around if anyone had a mama cat that would take them. We tried Milly and Pikachu. Milly kept hissing at them and swatting, but Pikachu took them right straight. I am so proud of her. She let them all nurse and was even licking them.
They're old enough to eat, but still need to nurse some. There is a really small, weak one that had a tick on it's eye. This one isn't eating food that well.The small one doesn't even look like it can see at all though.
They all came with their eyes matted shut and infected, but we cleaned them up and doctored their eyes.
This woman gave us the money for kitten food if we needed it and asked us if we could help them. She said she'd pay for anything they need and that she wants them back once they're eating well and are healthier. The smallest, weakest kitten that seems to be blind is still nursing.
So, praise Pikachu. <3 She saved this small kitten.
(Well, it's not that small next to her others. We're not going to keep it in there without supervision though simply because it's so much older than Pika's.)
I'll post more pics later.
You guys, I'm running out of cages to keep kittens in. ._.
First chick is still working on pecking out
Another chick started pipping
Another chick is making noises in the egg but isn't ready to pip yet, it will probably start tomorrow or later today judging by the sounds.
So that makes three babies close to hatching. They've been keeping me up all night with their peeps. This is the second sleepless night, many more to come.
