Hey everyone! I wanted to update you on the kitty rescue mission. Oh what a journey it has been!
We originally were able to get the three kittens in the photo, and every day since I have been trying to catch the other two. However, these little dudes are adjusting well. They are insanely playful, love to eat and drink loads, and love to have cuddle mountain parties!
This morning I went to check on them and the little runt (the one in the middle of the picture) was very lethargic. I decided to take her (yes! it’s a girl!) to the vet just in case. While we were there, the vet prescribed her some nutrition supplement to help with weight gain, and some deworming medicine.
On a sadder note, it seems like all of the kittens have fleas. The vet gave me Capstar oral medication that will kill the adult fleas, and in the meantime we are being very careful and washing/vacuuming everything.
The next step will be testing them for FIV/kitty leukemia, and then we’ll start vaccines once they are old enough. After that it’s off to find forever homes! I’m still on the search, so if you know anyone in the Atlanta area who would love a sweet kitty, shoot me an email!
Finally, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for donating or spreading the word. It has been such a journey for these little guys and it definitely doesn’t stop here. Unfortunately the flea medication took quite a chunk out of the kitty fund, so any more donations will be more than appreciated! In fact, I have a little treat up my sleeve for anyone who donated or donates in the future! Thank you again!
