    Not quite WTB and not a DQ, plus time is of the essence.
    My roommate and I discovered 5 kittens in a tree trunk in our backyard yesterday. They were very small. Eyes open but barely coordinated enough to walk. Some seemed very stuck and were meowing a lot, so my roommate go them out and put them in a little "corral" of sorts until we could get in touch with somebody to take them. It turns out that the Animal Rescue can't take them for adoption cause they're too young. So we hoped the mother (who we suspect is a stray we see around) would come back. She did, but left all but one poor little fellow.
    We can't have a cat as we're all leaving this house. He's so small that he'll need a dropper to eat, but his eyes are open and he can walk with some confidence. Of course, he has no shots, etc. but it's terrible hearing him meowing in the backyard wandering around. It's also been warm and I'm worried about his health without nutrition.
    Unfortunately, if he's still here tomorrow, we feel it's only right to bring him in and subsequently, put down. I didn't start this thread for a animal rights' argument or condemnation so please don't start with that.

    If you were thinking of getting a kitten, why not rescue this little guy? You'll have to nurse him for the time being. He's yellow/orange with blue eyes. please have a stable home and be able to care for him in the long run. Owning a pet is not like buying a pair of sneakers. That being said..
    Contact me asap if you want to take the kitten. I'm in Brighton 8five7-3uno8-Two62niner

    Sounds like it's going well, but if you need help (or just for future reference) look up the Gifford cat shelter near BC. We volunteer there on weekends, it's the oldest no-kill cage-less shelter in the country."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Most shelters/homes we contacted said that the kitten was far too young to be "surrendered". The fact that it had to be bottle fed in addition to barely walking, not being spayed and born stray were all working against it, hence my reaching out. My roommates and I were so glad to see photos of kitten doing well!
    But, he should probably introduce himself on the intro thread and check out the group rides.

    Catnard Hinault, Fausto Catti, Greg Lemeownd, Francesco Meowser, Alberto Catador, and Meowco Pantani would also have been good choices.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    purrckx and merckx actually SOUND almost identical, with only the first letter SOUNDING different.
    merckx and meowcx, not so much.

    also, this little bugger is a purr MACHINE, but has only the tiniest of meows.

    also, he is molteni orange, which is just too purrfect ;-)

    ratattack:Have you tried the MSPCA to see if they have a foster home available?


    Don't listen to this pickle addicted veirdo. She, and everyone, knows... the MSPCA will dispense kittens, puppies and boa constrictors to southern food processing plants in the export business. Do you want these kittens becoming ... italian seasoned food patties? If you do, than that is okay with Ratattack. And me.
