    No time for sewing

    Last weekend my husband found a kitten being dragged off by the tom cat - the tom dropped the baby and took off. Couldn't leave the baby to die so brought it in. He is approximately 4 weeks old now and nurses from a bottle. He thinks I'm his Mom - when he needs comforting he sucks on my finger and puts himself to sleep. One of his wounds abcessed so we had to take him to the vet - $90.00 later the wound was cleaned and he was put on an antibiotic. Just what I needed was another cat! His name is Oh No. It is almost like having a new baby - he has to be fed and cleaned several times a day.

    Let's hope he grows into a big healthy cat, proud and full of himself in his new loving environment, and one day can take on that old Tom who tried to carry him off. How sweet you are to care for him so sweetly.

    So sweet of you to rescue the baby. I rescued 3 black kittens from a negligent mama once. My DH wouldn't let me bring them in the house because we had a younger kitten. So I built a condo in the garage with a light bulb for warmth. They had lillte teeth so my vet said they didn't need to be bottle fed. Bought kitten food and mixed it with warm " mother's milk". Had to get up in the night to feed them, teach them how to use a litterbox, etc. we did find them good homes. It's a lot of work, but it made me feel good that I saved them.

    I have a cat named No Way. He could fit in the palm of my hand. We had to bottle feed him too. Now he is a healthy cat ,14 years old and never hears the word no.

    Is that Oh No not another one? My niece found a kitten and her daughter (6 yrs. old at the time) fed it. When it would whine, she gave it her doll's pacifier. That cat is 3 now and dares any one to mess with that pacifier. Their cat's name is "KATT".

    That is funny!! My daughter called me up one morning (about 5 yrs ago) and said, mom, do you have time to take care of a baby? What kind of baby? says I. She found a tiny kitten in a neighbors yard. It was yelling its head off. Just barely had its eyes open. I said ok. It was a longhaired tiger tabby like a main coon cat. I bottle fed the little booger every 2-3 hours. Kept her in a plastic tub till she was big enough to get about on her own. It was really funny! When she was really hungry she would grab her bottle and growl and claw it. I started calling her TeenyMeeny. It stuck and she has lived up to her name!! At the time I had a little dog that was paper trained. The kitten was sniffing around the paper and tinkled on it. So I got a little bitty plastic box and put litter in it and she was trained instantly! She also caught her first mouse when she was about 3 months old. The mouse was a baby too. She turned into a beautiful cat with 5" long whiskers. I'll see if I have a pic of her and post it.
