Abbie was born September 19th to a feral cat. I found six kittens in the woods next to my house. They were screaming bloody murder so I went to see what was wrong. They were all stuck together via their umbilical cords. I took them to the vet. Three had to be put to sleep due to severe leg injuries from the cord being wrapped around their legs. I lost two more kittens within the next few days, presumably from fading kitten syndrome. I have bottle fed Abbie since day one. The feral mother wanted nothing to do with the kittens once I was able to reintroduce them. Abbie has stayed strong though! She is a feisty, playful bundle of joy!

    Yay for little Abbie for surviving such a hard start in life and cheers to you for helping the kitties. I’m sorry the others didn’t survive, but I hope Abbie is a wonderful reward for your kindness.

    Lucky little Abbie! So sad that only 1 of 6 survived…a testament to spaying and neutering our pets. Abbie has such beautiful markings – she will be a really lovely grown up cat.

    oh, how heartbreaking to lose so many little kittens! Thank you for your kindness and caring: thanks to you, little Abbie has a chance now at a life of love and health. Treats and many gentle cuddles to her :-)

    It’s sad that none of Abbie’s siblings made it, but she is a wonderful gift to you. Hopefully her feral mama will get trapped and spayed, or at least learn some parenting skills!

    I imagine all that work was worth it when you ear Abbie purr for a moment or two.

    Abbie is a sensational survivor & very deserving of being featured today. I wish her health, health, & more health! Plus happiness times 10.

    Six kittens was probably a lot for the biological mum to cope with in the wild. I’m so sorry five of them died. Not the finder’s fault; thanks so much for caring for them and saving dear wee Abbie. She is lovely.

    So, adorable. She reminds me of my Sassy when she was a kitten.

    P.S. Peekaboo is picture as my avatar, not Sassy. Sassy has coloring like your Abbie.

    Ohhhh cuteness overload! What a beautiful baby she is! I love her face and her tortie markings. Abbie indeed has tortitude – which helped her survive along with your great mothering skills. It must have been very hard losing the others. I agree with an earlier poster that her mama needs to be spayed ASAP! Could very well be too that this was her first litter. Abbie found a great forever home and mama!

    That’s a heartbreaking story. Bless you for attempting to save all the kittens. You have to be a very loving and strong person. Abbie has such wonderful markings. I especially love her ginger nose.
