It is unprecedented for us, but this year finds us with 19 kittens in Foster care! There are two more that are here with me- Draco and Muggles- fast running out of supplies and most of them will be hopefully moving on to new homes (via other rescues). But they will be weaned off the bottle soon and returning here to be spayed/neutered and fed! Draco and Muggles are now eating canned kitten food, which is another unprecedented event for us. We usually don’t wean them until they are around 6 weeks old- but this year out of necessity and the fact that the formula no longer satisfies- we have accelerated the weaning process. We are feeding currently FF kitten food wet and Iams Kitten food dry. I just updated the wish list if someone has a few dollars they don’t need- well, we need the food. And still the phone rings constantly with people having abandoned kittens. Our Inn is full up at this time. It is just crazy madness at the moment.
Ashley is coming back to us on Saturday. Apparently she has been hiding under the bed of the Meowvillage volunteer since being dropped off over two weeks ago. They want to take another kitty in her place, so Barney, a 4 year old mack tabby tomcat (no more!) will be switched for her. Barney wandered into a garage in Albany and immediately started baptizing the walls, the cars, the equipment etc… He was finally trapped on Tues. Neutered on Weds and will be at Meowvillage on Saturday. He is not feral- but he hasn’t been inside a home either for a very long time where Ash has been living with us. They just don’t feel it would be fair to Ash to put her in a barn or a shop- so she will be picked up by me on Saturday.
Thanks for any help you can be with the kitten food. Adults are covered, it is the kittens who need the help.
