Fife the Frog and Alice's Rabbit just got wrapped up and will be on the way to their new owners today! To make things even sweeter, the sale of these SnipPet critters went straight toward this week's feral cat spay surgery and rabies shot! Woohooooooo for that!! Many thanks to my wonderful customers for helping me help cats in need :).
Minnie, the feral cat, has quite a TAIL to tell! I trapped her quite easily at the warehouse where she resides on Monday night. And her transport to the vet on Tuesday morning went smoothly too. Well, when i arrived to pick her up that afternoon, the vet had some news that definitely shocked me. When they opened Minnie up to spay her, she had 4 full term kittens that came out crying!! They brought a little box out and showed me the 4 wiggling, squirming little mini Minnies :). They are all tiny tuxedos...look like little penquins. TOO cute! Unfortunately, when they tried to put the kittens with Minnie, she rejected them....wanted nothing to do with motherhood. Thankfully, the vet and her vet tech are willing to syringe and bottle feed them for the next 3 to 4 weeks. That is a HUGE job, so I am extremely grateful!!!! I will keep you posted on their progress...fingers crossed that they all survive and thrive. Poor Minnie was so confused and I felt awful for her. It was great to release her back into familiar territory last night. I know she was relieved to be back in her own environment.
Here is the current foster kitten gang enjoying our Lotus cat tree!! They are really making progress. It's hard to believe that they were spitting and lunging at me 2 weeks ago. Last night, they were following me around the kitten room like baby ducks.
