Clementine and Lyra

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.

    When these wee kits come into a room, they bring the light and warmth of sunshine! Iattah bittah kittahs can’t survive in a shelter environment. Clementine and Lyra are so lucky to have a guardian angel. Thank you for your efforts esp. with Clementine.

    How rare to see two little marmalade sisters, both as cute as buttons! Bless you for taking such excellent care of these two. If only your heart could be cloned. Prayers have been sent that these two get the best forever homes.

    Aw, thanks all. As of this Friday, when Clem was adopted, both girls and their mom have wonderful new homes. These were my first newborns, and the hardest ever for me to let go of. And this afternoon I pick up a new foster, an adult orange boy. Always a kitty in need…

    Clementine and Lyra are angels. Thanks to you for rescuing the 2 little darlings. I think I would permanently adopt those two.

    When you care for tiny, helpless, sick babies such as these, you deeply bond with them. It about kills you to let them go. Foster parents rock! Bless you for helping those in need.
