this is t2 (i have a better pic on the dead computer):

images.cheezburger.comView Full Size


she was dumped at our house in south florida with her mother and 2 other kittens. one kitten disappeared immediately; t2, momkitty & bouie moved up to the panhandle with us. momkitty moved to a house down the street (i think she didn't appreciate our dogs) and bouie was another disappeared one. we lived not far from the eglin afb reservation and bears, wild boars and coyotes were not unheard of in the area. t2 (sometimes pronounced chee-choo) was named after tracee because she was almost a twin. her nickname is the supervisor; she could tell you how to create a bathroom out of part of a garage.

this is bailey. the first was taken with a camera phone in a dim bedroom; the second was taken with a digital camera in the same dim bedroom:

bailey was found abandoned in the back of a coworker's yard; the vet estimated she was 3 days old. i bottle-raised her, and i have the scars to prove it. she was never around another kitten so didn't learn that biting and scratching hurt. yes, she looks like a flame-point siamese with ice-blue eyes. there have been several kittens similar in appearance at the local rescue shelter.

blurry phone pic of the kitten i rescued as a companion for bailey:

she was left outside during our coldest (below freezing) weather for several days in a row. when a coworker found her sleeping on her boyfriend's (black) motorcycle seat early one morning, she called me. i took her to the vet when i was picking bailey up after her 'operation.' worms we expected from the distended tummy; felv positive we didn't. that's the vet holding her; there isn't anyone local who takes in positive cats, so we sent her to the bridge shortly after taking the picture.

Booger just spent 3 hours with her babies and didn't try to hide them. I had to take them back to Indie because they were trying to nurse. She still has a wound on her belly, but it's scabbed over and she is most likely not making any milk.
Now that the big babies have teeth, I want to start weening them. I've tried pulverized kitten food mixed with goat's milk and they aren't interested. Do I leave it out for them all day? Indie likes to eat it too, so I'm hoping they'll follow her lead. I've put some on my finger and touched their noses, but they just ignore it.
Any suggestions on how to get them started?
Thanks.

I mix soft canned kitten food with kitten formula. Make it really wet--it should be smooth, mouse-body temperature, and just about run off your finger. Put it in the blender if you have to. Open their little mouths to get it on their tongues. They will start to suck it up eventually. Don't leave it out--they don't know what it is yet. It will take a couple of days for them to recognize this new presentation of food, and another week before they are any good at it. Gradually make it thicker. It will be an unholy mess, so get lots of washcloths ready BEFORE every feeding time, 4 times a day. Mom can do the final cleanup, but she may stop cleaning their hind ends when they are on solids, so watch out for that.

If they can follow mom to the catbox, that's probably all the training they need, but if not, you have to take them to a tiny box after each meal. This is the easiest part of weaning a kitten, and there are no excuses to get bad habits started. A cardboard lid with regular jonnycat is enough. They say that tiny kittens shouldn't use scoopable. Make sure they can get in and out on their own. Don't expect miracles the first time, but once they use it, they will return, so don't move it! (And yes, the big cats will try to use it, and look very silly doing so)

And when they don't need mom any more, get both moms spayed, PRONTO! You are probably right about them coming into heat again. Cats can have 3 litters a year. Kittens can be fixed between 2-4 pounds, depending on the vet. Do not delay--they will create more kitties before you think they can.

Hope this helps--like any mom job, it's tough, but worth it!

There were two or three of us that posted that pic with different captions... Here's the one I did.


That's the one I was looking for, thanks. (I went back and checked and still can't find your original post, so I guess I'm not totally insane. Yet.)

Anyway, I found that comforter in the back of my closet some months ago and tossed on the floor to throw it out, where Dragon promptly claimed it. It has been on my couch ever since. Last week, I replaced it with a new (less ugly) throw, which Dragon sniffed, and refused to sit on, instead he curled up on the garbage bag I put the ugly one in. Needless to say, the new throw is now stored in the closet and the old comforter is back on the couch.

It's not a race, you need to come in within a specified range of time, not too fast and not too slow. You are judged on your riding and how you care for the horse, some are two day events so that is checked when you are riding as well not riding. The horse is judged on conditioning (how their pulse and respirations recover after extreme exertion, maintain hydration and how they handle obstacles like creek crossings, bogs, difficult and rocky trails, etc.
