OOPS! I did it again.....

Baldwin Kitten B4 5:30 am.

That was a line from the Brittney Spear days, but applies to me each time I rescue a cat.  If you recall yesterday's post, I mentioned how when I pulled up to the Baldwin location to feed that morning, I spotted two 8-10 week old kittens sitting there, and an obviously nursing mother, of which I had never seen before.  A tabby nursing mother.  There is already a grey nursing mother there, which has been for weeks, and she runs up to me each morning.  I poured the food and water for the five adult cats, now two kittens, and drove off in sorrow.  When I arrived there this morning, I spotted the two kittens sitting in the groove of the tree there, huddled together.  When I got out, the calico one went scampering for safety, but it took a little longer for the tabby.  He eventually was out of reach for me, until I was on my way back to the car and I passed him trying to get food off the plate that an adult while male was eating from, and I snuck up and grabbed him.  I will never allow a baby kittten to remain on the street if I have the power to recue them.  I brought him home, and he felt very dirty, and scabby.  I bathed him and it was like the Sea of Blood.  I couldn't believe how many fleas I saw.  I scrubbed him as best as I could in Dawn dish detergent, but some still remain.  I will call my vet and arrange to pick up some flea stuff right after work.  This poor little animal.  I must find this kitten a place to go for now - foster or otherwise, quickly, or I will need to bring him to Lollipop.  I would rather he go to Lollipop than to remain on the street.  I cannot bear to think of babies trying to survive out there on the street.  Its a crime to allow that.

Another Baldwin nursing mother
 Tuffy was at the Central Avenue location this morning.  He seems to be applying pressure to his paw a bit more - but I am sure its still severely injured.  A piece of glass, something is in there.

 And to end the week, here are a few pictures of some of my own brood.  I love my kitties!!  :)



I wish you all a great weekend!
