A year ago today, I gave birth to four boy-kits: Cloud, Cousteau/Kai, Little Guy/Tiger, and Squishy! I had to learn how to be a mama cat to them, but my mama, Boo-Boo Kitty, helped a lot with showing me how. My people didn't take care of us, so when my kits were three weeks old we went to live with our neighbors, who taught me that I was supposed to feed my kits every couple of hours and stay with them until they were done nursing each time. After I learned that, I was a very good mama to my baby boys!
I love them very much, and am so glad that Cloud, Kai, and Tiger have awesome homes. They were adopted a short time after they were weaned. Cloud and his mommy send us pictures every once in a while, and he looks a lot like me, except a lighter grey. Kai's mommy works at a vet clinic, so she takes very good care of him. Tiger was originally adopted to a man living alone, but his grandkids loved Tig' so much that they re-adopted him!
Unfortunately, soon after Squishy was adopted out, his new family took him to the vet for his poopy problems and the vet said that he would never get over them. His system didn't function right, something that our vet hadn't diagnosed but the new vet did. Squish had to be put to sleep. He always had a look to him that Foster Mommy thought may mean that he wasn't as well-formed as the rest, and she was right.
I am so glad to have been able to take care of my baby kits and see them weaned and off to their homes. I'm wishing them all a happy birthday today, at their new homes and Squishy's celebrating his at the Bridge! Happy, happy birthday, babies! You are now official mancats!
