Two months ago my husband and I found newborn kittens on the
side of the highway. These kittens looked to be weeks old as many of them could
not got to the bathroom on their own. Small and frail and too young to be way
from their mom. We took the kitten’s
home and cared for them as if they were our own.
Calico kittens on night of rescue
Presently three out of the kittens have reached four pounds
and this is the weight in which they can get their vaccines, spay or
neuter. It also signifies a time when
they are ready to be adopted.
My husband and I have gotten attached to the pitter patters
of running kittens through the house. Even my dogs have become nurturing: licking
kittens in the morning to groom them and are very caring but soon we must wave goodbye as the kitten sponsors’
will come to collect all but three 4 pound kittens on Monday.
Gray and white kitten on night we rescued
The two remaining
are still underweight and cannot get their vaccines, spay or neuter until they
are four pounds.
Next Monday will be hard on the kittens overall as they will
be frightened and they will also be separated from each other. The kittens are going to be donated to PetSmart pet charities as the veterinarian has good relations with the women who oversee
the in store adoptions..
I know the
kittens will be adopted quickly as they are all darling and have unique
markings. Nonetheless it makes me sad and it is hard for this rescuer
to say goodbye.
