He IS a very cute little guy, and I’m very happy you kept these two littermates together.
To those saying “It’s great that he has blue eyes” and the like: I think ALL kittens are born with blue eyes, There comes a time in their young age, at which they eyes gradually change color to green, yellow, etc. SOME cats’ eyes stay blue, but far from all.
You should know that just giving him milk (from a cow) is not good enough; he really needs cat’s milk to give him the immunities he’s not getting from his mother. You can get cat’s milk at any pet supply shop, or maybe from a vet.
I hope you have many good years together!
I’m so glad she got rescued shortly after her mother died… but this, then, makes me wonder: what about the rest of the litter? Were there any others in the litter? Are they in a good place, such as a no-kill shelter or a foster home?
I hope she gets cat milk, not plain old cow milk the way humans do. She needs the immunities that she would…[Read more]
I am not an expert on cats, but I have a thought that I’d toss out here, maybe others can agree or disagree: If I were in that situation I’d give each cat his/her own room, preferably with a door shared between them. I’d get a toy, and let Timid play with it for a bit, then let Spook play with it for a bit… maybe alternate who plays with…[Read more]
That way works if the kitten is old enough for those little peas to drop but, if it’s still too young, there’s a good way to tell the kitty’s sex: Take a look below the tail, between the legs. If you see something round or conical, it’s a boy. If you see a slit (back to front) it’s a girl.
Figaro is just darling! But if he’s only a month old, he’s probably not weaned yet, so he should be eating (drinking?) cat’s milk — milk from a cow won’t give him the immunities that he should have gotten from his mother’s milk. You can get cat’s milk from most pet supply shops.
Best of luck to you and little Figaro :3
Yes, definitely: please take Karamel to a vet to give her necessary inoculations, test for FIV and leukemia, etc, and also:
– She needs cat’s milk (not regular cow’s milk) to give her the immunities she should have gotten from her mother’s milk but stopped drinking mother’s milk too early.
– In the wild, kittens need help pooping at a young age.…[Read more]
What a sad story with, hopefully, a happy ending!
You may already know but, in case not, milk from a cow is not good enough for her; she needs cat’s milk, available at most pet supply stores. The milk will give her the immunities she would have gotten from her mother, to common cat diseases. She doesn’t need to be immune to cow…[Read more]
Kiki looks like a sweet little girl! :3
Thank you for taking care of her. Until about 5 years ago, I lived at a place that had several cats hanging out, mostly feral, and I fed them, found a home for a few and helped the local no-kill shelter trap the rest. The one that was not tameable, they neutered and set free again.
Note: when I see…[Read more]
What a sweet little fuzzball!
Don’t forget that she’s a CAT. That means that she’ll be sleeping most of the time. If you really want her to have company, you can take home another cat, and the two of them can play together. The other one will be less annoyed if it’s also a kitten and playful. I also think that two cats of the same sex tend…[Read more]
Looking back at that first pictures, I see my error. what I thought was white, is lit by direct sunlight; what I thought was red, is lit by incandescent light that turned his white fur a shade of red.
With that new understanding, I see that Dio is, indeed, having a great time in the top pic :3
Wait a minute! I see pictures of two different cats here. The first pic is of a calico, which is almost certainly female, and the second pic is of a black-and-white tabby, which may be female but probably 2/3 likely male. I assume this tabby is Dio, since you talk about him in the masculine gender. Who is the calico, who’s looking like she’s…[Read more]
Mortimer is going to grow into a beautiful cat, such interesting and unusual colors!
You should be aware that “regular ol'” cow’s milk will not give him the immunities that he needs; he should get cat’s milk, which should be available at any pet shop.
Good luck! I wish you many wonderful years with this sweetie!
I’m so glad your mommies took you in so you can grow up safe and well-fed. I hope your human mommies know that you need cat’s milk to give you the immunities that you would have gotten from your mother’s milk, had she not abandoned you. Cow’s milk won’t give you those.
Have a great, long life!
Thank you for taking care of adorable little Ciri! I assume that since you seem to care enough about how to best take care of her to go searching for info, then you are already giving her cat’s milk, not cow’s milk. Good for you!
Best of luck, I hope she grows up to be healthy and happy for many years :3
