Foster Kittens

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

The Greenville Humane Society needed somebody to foster these adorable kittens while they found a mommy kitty willing to take them in. We had the three orphans for about four days and loved it! They were about ten days old, just opening their eyes and ears!

This little lady was the runt of the litter. They almost don’t look like cats when they’re this young!

This little guy loved to snuggle!

My favorite, the healthiest one, reminded me of a cheetah! Look at the cute little “M” on his forehead! His little ears flapped when he suckled!

Taking care of orphan kittens is a big responsibility, not a decision to be taken lightly. They have to be fed every few hours, and because they are so young, they can’t go to the bathroom on their own. Their mom will lick them to encourage them to go…we used cotton balls. This has to be done at every feeding, and then they need to be cleaned and kept in a warm area. Unfortunately, orphan kittens don’t always make it, because they lack the necessary antibodies to fight off common illnesses. Normally the mother’s milk would provide this for them. Luckily for these guys, another mommy kitty was willing to take them in, and they’ll have a much better chance of growing up, and finding a forever home!

Ting Ting and Frankie!

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Marissa and I took Ting Ting and Frankie out to Furman University for a walk. Yes, you read right. You can put a leash on most animals and they will walk. Frankie is a lazy cat though, so he didn’t walk much. Ting Ting walked over  half-way around the lake at Furman! Before our walk we stopped by some trees to take a few pictures.

This one is Ting Ting. I named her after the band, The Ting Tings. She was a little sick when we first got her, but is all better now, her fur is still growing back, that’s why her nose may look a little funny.

Frankie is just being lazy 🙂

Ting Ting always likes to tilt her head. She is almost like an owl and turns her head many different directions.

Aww, sister and brother.

Frankie has grown up so much since his First Day in the Park! It always amazes me how white he looks! He actually has a tiny black smudge of fur on the top of his head, but you can never see it in pictures because the rest of him is so white.

Look how sweet Ting Ting looks! I love the little tufts of fur on her ears (we think she may be part Maine Coon!)

Frankie kept crawling right against the ground, like he was on the prowl except he wasn’t hunting or chasing anything. Goofy cat!

The pretty mountains in the background! Ting Ting almost looks like a black tabby from this side! I love her unique calico markings, a little half and half kitten!

We got a lot of stares and comments about walking our cats! I guess most people don’t take their cats for walks! They love stalking through the grass, climbing the trees, and chasing leaves! It gives them a chance to be out in their natural habitat without any of the dangers! The best part was watching the cats sniff the dogs! Ting Ting seemed to prefer running in the grass, while Frankie seemed to enjoy climbing trees more. They both thought the ducks were pretty curious, and Ting Ting liked to chase after bikers! At the end of the day the cats were all “tuckered out” and slept so soundly the rest of the night (Frankie even snored).

Frankie’s First Day in the Park

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Frankie is ten weeks old now! We got him when he was five weeks old. We call him Frankie, short for Frank Sinatra, because he actually sings. He goes “Meweeeeewwww Mew, Mew, la la laaaaaaaa.” For real! Sometimes he sounds like he is underwater. I thought he was mewing with his head underwater in his water bowl. Nope. He can just mew like he is underwater! He enjoyed his day in the park. We took him to the Rock Quarry Garden in Greenville, SC. He sniffed everything and wanted to go exploring in the bushes.

Marissa just had to put a little blue bow on him! Poor little guy!

At first he didn’t like his collar and leash. I think he knew that it was a ferret collar. We couldn’t find a kitten collar small enough. He got use to it after a bit.

I figured since he liked to explore we should stick him on the rocks in the middle of the water. He he! He didn’t think it was so fun and searched for a route of escape the very second he felt the water.

He did like the trees. He wanted to climb to the top of them. But then he began crying when he wanted back down!

It is very exciting having a kitten around the house! He does all sorts of goofy and crazy things. It’s funny when he starts attacking his tail! He looks at it like, “Hey! What are you doin’ followin’ me everywhere punk!” He has so much energy! And yet, he always has time for a nap! His solid white coat makes for interesting pictures. Sometimes the camera won’t focus because there is not enough contrast, so it makes fun practice! It can be very time consuming to get a cat to behave the way you want for pictures! Pet photographers have a very special talent!
