And she will be just fine, and grow up to be a fierce protective huntress of her domain!
So glad you took her to the vet. My little Peso is on Clavamox (amoxicillin) 2 times a day for his sneezies. He is getting better, and he probably has feline herpes, but his immune system is not fully developed yet and hopefully the antibiotics help him get…[Read more]
Good morning everyone! It’s finally Friday! Beautiful day here after a couple days of rain and storms. I have baby Peso fed and he’s back in his bed. I have a free day today as Avery’s mom took the day off and will have a long weekend with the holiday being Monday!!
Nr, KZ has been feeling funky–sore throat. I think he feels a little better…[Read more]
Thanks Art for the words of wisdom and tricks of the trade! It never hurts to post things that may help someone when they are in the midst of hand rearing. Some things work for some folks and kittens, others don’t, and we are always looking for ways to help these babies survive.
If he is lethargic, rub some honey, or syrup on his gums to perk his sugar level up, and then maybe he will eat something. Try to stay calm. Then call the vet, he may have worms which could be the cause of the blood.
He surely isn’t dehydrated, but keep giving him fluids, even if it’s by dropper until you can get him to the vet to see what’s…[Read more]

PG, be a good girl and you WILL soon be out and about!! It’s so hard to do as I was on the inside looking out for so very long.
When Bowtie walks across the kitchen floor, her back claws click like a tap dancer. She is heavy on her feet for some reason…and I clip all their front claws, but her always make me smile when she comes bounding in for…[Read more]

Kincaid gave you good advice. Make sure that they are getting milk…it could also be that she doesn’t have any milk. You can find out my gently squeezing her nipples and see if milk drips out. If you end up hand rearing them yourself, you will have to make sure they pee and poop by…[Read more]
Absolutely, and the more he eats the baby food mix, he will poop on his own, I really don’t think you need to worry. I put my kitten in the box when he has been out and about for a while, as I found that he had peed on my kitchen rug. Of course, he is too young to know where the litter boxes are in relation to the house, so it’s up to me to make…[Read more]

I am so sorry for the death of your beloved furbaby. You are right about that it is not your fault, but it doesn’t lessen the feeling of guilt. With time the raw feelings you are experiencing will fade, and you will remember her with love and not the pain. Her sister will be fine even though she may miss her sibling for a while.
Bless you both…[Read more]
I don’t know if you are familiar with Fred Rogers, a children’s TV personality and the star of Mr. Rogers neighborhood; but I found this quote from him– “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
Awww, very nice little apartment that Bean has going on there! 😆
I’m so glad he’s doing so well. Once he poops, you can relax and enjoy everything much better. It’s just that little doubt that keeps you worrying, I know. I’m thinking he will go on his own and soon.
Try peeing him over the litter, and when you get a poop, put it in the box. Then when he gets in the litter box he will smell his own pee and poop and go in it. You watch him when he is in it and if he hasn’t eaten any of it, he probably won’t. I am now sprinkling clumping litter in with the non clumping clay litter my kitten uses, getting him…[Read more]

Oh the pics are cute and MS, the photographs from yesterday are wonderful!!
My laptop is so slow I feel like throwing it across the room most times I’m trying to use it, but it’s still functional, so I’ll keep it around until it’s done. I have a couple of tablets and work well, and also a desk top, which I love. I don’t think that I will buy…[Read more]
Have you tried him in a litter box yet? He should be getting out of his bed and going to the litter box on his own to pee and poop. It needs to be close to his bed so he can get out and use it at will. Now when he is running around the house, you need to make sure you put him in it every so often so he will pee in it instead of on the floor. My…[Read more]

PG, now I have to go and look up that muscle! For heaven’s sake woman, sometimes you need to just give it a rest….I say this knowing full well I probably would have done the same thing. *sigh* Except that I don’t have close neighbors and would have been laying there for a loooong time.. 😮 Hoping your cats will give you snuggles while you are…[Read more]
You should probably try and start him on wet canned food first and he will get along better at trying to eat it. I’m not saying he won’t be messy, because he will step in it and you will probably have to wash him after every meal, but you can dilute it with formula and make it easier for him to eat. The grabbing at the bottle is common when they…[Read more]
If a kitten has fleas (they are hard to detect on a black cat or kitten) you can see flea dirt, which is their poop, when you part the fur on their tummies or down between their legs where it’s warm. Fleas like moisture too, so they collect around the eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
Also black kittens have little white flecks on their fur if they…[Read more]

Yes, I have been walking around with flat ears a lot these days….
Great pics today guys! Beautiful Tuesday here, spring/summer like with rain storms expected tomorrow. I need to get my tomatoes in, so I’d best get started.
Hope to check in later all!
I meant to tell you how sweet your kitten is in the video! Is there nothing cuter than a kitten on it’s back with paws in the air? I love little tuxedo cats…I now have two of them–Willow and Peso.
Since you are hand rearing this kitten, he will bond with you and you will be his littermate and ‘mother’, the one he will look to for everything.…[Read more]
