Well, I still don’t know how to publish decent-quality photos using WorldPress, but here is a tiny snap of two of the new babies.
And here’s their story:
This morning I got a call about a woman who lives near me who had some kittens she wanted us (the rescue) to pick up. It seems that she found them in box in the creek behind her house last night. There were 6 of them, but one had already drowned. Yes, people here DO put kittens in dumpsters, in gunny sacks, in the river, etc. That’s why my state was solidly for Bush/Cheney. Anyway, the woman who found them didn’t want them in the house (she claims she’s allergic), so she left them in a high-sided vacuum cleaner box on her porch. She checked on this morning, and two of the kittens were gone, as was their blanket. She thinks that one of her neighbors heard them crying and took two home to care for them. I’m hoping that that’s what happened.
They are cute little things, but they are just babies (maybe 4 weeks old), and not fully weaned. They were starving when I got these three home (the woman who found them gave them cow’s milk in a bowl, but they didn’t know what to do with it). So, I put them in my bathroom and gave them kitten formula, and they drank until their little tummies were as round as Jonah’s. Maybe I will name one of them Jonah in his honor.
So, that’s how the Wall Street crash is affecting kittens.
