These are my two foster kittens Clementine and Lyra. The rescue I work with, Walter Rescue, pulled them and their mom from BARCS animal shelter when they were just five days old. They’re the youngest kittens I’ve ever fostered, but I’m so glad I did, because they never would have made it in a huge animal shelter. They both got nasty upper respiratory infections at two weeks old, and Clementine’s developed into pneumonia. I nearly lost her because she just couldn’t nurse and breathe at the same time. A combination of a great vet, the right antibiotic, and me syringe feeding her for a week to get her weight back on track means they’re both healthy, happy kittens today.
