Kitten

Yesterday, I got a call from Bob. Seems they found a small kitten in the warehouse, just bebopping down one of the aisles. No sign of Momma Cat or any siblings. Pretty lucky not to have been squished by one of the lifts! Bob is now regretting telling me that. I came by on my lunch hour and picked up the kitty ion a box and stopped at Western feed to get some KMR and a bottle and took it back to work.



Bottle feeding a kitten is not as easy as it sounds. Nor is waking up at 3am to feed a hungry mewling kitten. I am trying very hard not to name it or get too attached.

Today I took it to the vet and confirmed that "It" is a "She". Vet says she looks pretty healthy but gave her dewormer to be on the safe side. She seems to be settling in a bit. We are keeping her in a box in the bedroom. The other cats have come in while I have been feeding her, sniffed her, hissed and ran away. Honey Bun, however, was quite interested in her. So much so that she had to sleep outside last night because she would not stay away from her.



We are hoping to find a home for her before I get too attached.

Aw, she is adorable. You are such a nice person for taking in the kitten. I don't know if I would be able to re-home her though. I would want to keep her.
