Very late in today, but it’s hot and muggy here too. We did have a shower this afternoon and I believe that it’s supposed to cool off some mid week.
I love the pics….the melty cat and the kitten passed out are adorable. I’m not afraid of snakes, in fact I actually like them around my house and gardens. I would not feel that way if we had any…[Read more]
What I have done with my kittens is put them in a dog crate with their bed, blankets, small litter box (when they are old enough to use one) and food and water bowls when they are old enough to eat on their own. This way the other cats in the household get to know the new baby and the baby gets used to the comings and goings and noises and sounds…[Read more]
That’s awesome news! I know the feeling of worry and concern and the feeding, and the oil and the stimulating and just at the last minute…..POOP!!
So glad she’s feeling better and even if she is a CH kitten, she is still a wonderful kitten!!
Why don’t you try stimulating her to go yourself (I will post a link for you on the ‘triangle method’) to get her started. If she is constipated with hard stool, it may take a couple of days for the oils to work along with the watered down KMR. You can also give her goat’s milk which is a miracle worker for constipated kittens. It does not cause…[Read more]
Hi all! Didn’t make it to the cafe yesterday, and late today! Well, it’s the weekend and busy with comings and goings.
JJ, have fun with sis one more day! Storms forecasted for tomorrow here, but we could actually use a little rain. The grass is dry but still green and I’m having to water my potted flowers in the evening after they have baked in…[Read more]
You can also use goat’s milk (pasteurized) and will be a complete food for these kittens like kitten formula if you can get some. I’ll post some links for you also in hand rearing kittens which has been helpful to me over the…[Read more]
Welcome ENC! It seems to me that you have been very thorough and have tried everything. Although I haven’t had a kitten that kept having trouble like yours, I have had kittens who started out not being able to figure out the nipple/bottle thing.
It may be that she will not master it, but as long as she is getting nutrition and you are making…[Read more]

Awwww, what sweet pics! Love the rug with eyes and the little black kitten in the sink–SQUEEEEE!
Mr. KZ and I went to the funeral home last night to pay our respects to the family and husband of the woman who died last Friday while she and hubby were turning into a driveway on their motorcycle. They were hit from behind and it will be…[Read more]

I love pecans and the occasional piece of pecan pie, but it’s just too sweet for me. I love eating nuts just by themselves. It’s surprising to me that they each have such a different and unique flavor. People need to eat more of them because they have such healthy fat. I have to just take a few out of the bag or I tend to over eat them! 😛
Make sure the food you provide the kittens is the pate’ style wet food with no chunks or shreds, even though mama may like it. She will benefit from this now because she needs extra nutrition and she will probably like goat’s milk too. You can actually mix a little of the milk with the food and she gets what she needs while she is still…[Read more]

Hi all! Been busy this morning and need to shop for groceries, and car needs picked up and Mr. KZ needs to pick up his feed. Trying to coordinate everyone’s needs with schedules is exhausting!
I love the pics today, the kittens are especially adorable — kind of twists my heart when they look so sad though!
Well, gotta run, Mr. KZ is pulling in…[Read more]

Well, the kitty pics today are just darling. I just can’t like one over the other. I believe I had teddy bears and lots of other stuffed animals over the years. I have a stuffed otter holding a starfish which was given to me by youngest dau years ago…it has special meaning to both of us because it reminds us of a favorite book that she always…[Read more]
Christina, your post makes my heart hurt for you. I know you are devastated about losing Spot and I know that your boyfriend is too. Things like this happen frequently when trying to raise little kittens. Sometimes, there is just no explaining why things like this happen, but Spot knew love, and comfort and a full tummy because the two of you took…[Read more]

PG, I feel your pain. You need to get out amongst people…I get like that when it’s hot, I’ve been in too long, etc. Treat yourself to a pedicure, go get a coffee and a sandwich and sit in a restaurant or cafe and just watch people come and go..sometimes it’s such a delicious feeling.
JJ, sorry about the cats. I won’t tolerate mean cats in my…[Read more]
Good Sunday morning all!
MS, good to see you! Yes, I am on pins and needles with this rescue…I can’t imagine having a child in that cave. I would be pressing someone to drill a freaking hole in the ground and I’ll go down and get my kid out. And as for the guy that took them down there….”hold my beer”.
It’s been beautiful here for the last…[Read more]
Yes, this kitten could have aspirated milk, and yes, it could also have a URI (upper respiratory infection) and it could have a cleft palate which allows milk to enter the nasal cavities and not go down into the stomach where it belongs. This kitten needs to see a vet NOW, or it won’t survive since it’s already exhibiting symptoms of distress such…[Read more]

Funny topic today–but I never get bored. There is always something to stimulate my interest. Just walk outside even and watch the birds, or the fish in my pond. I guess also that when you are content and happy, you just don’t get bored. Now that I think of it, I’ve really never been bored! Things like sitting in doctor’s offices or waiting might…[Read more]
Are you feeding him kitten milk replacer (KMR)? You can switch to a cheaper alternative, goat’s milk. It’s in the cold refrigerated section of the grocery, or in the baking aisle in cans as condensed, or powder. He has to have some nutrition in order to poop. Once he is on the goat’s milk (which I recommend) his pooping troubles will be over.
