When it purrz, it rainz more kittenz

Well Maggie was holding back three more kittens!! Two white kittens and one more black kitten showed up Sunday Morning at my friend's house, where I am staying.

They were born and raised in an empty house next door, so they are used to people smells, just learning what "people" look like. Will tell a longer back story later.

A far shot with my digital camera, s
howing Maggie and two of her remaining kittens eating. The black one has his/her face in the bowl. One of the white kittens is a girl for sure.

Going to need worm meds.

Will ask Dr. Adkins if I can buy Drontal from her since Drontal covers all worm infestations with one dose. Will let you know how much that would be for three kitten pills.

The Round/hook and tapeworm meds (two different pills) from the Vet supply will cost abt 8.00 for each kitten, around 24.00 total.

Once captured, will have to keep them separated from their other siblings until they have been dewormed at least.

And the little bathroom won't hold 6 three month old kittens at once!

Have a quiet room where I can put a big crate for the last three kittens and possibly Maggie too. Looking on Craig's list and price ranging from 20 to 50 dollars. Making phone calls Monday morning to see who still has one and price.

Some good news! I have a voucher code that will get my almost three year olds Bootsie and Daisy spayed for free as well as spaying Maggie and getting her babies fixed at Kansas Spay and Neuter Clinic. The voucher is from a local organization called RETAIN. (Wichita, Kansas)

Hope to catch Maggie and her remaining kitties furry soon!

Update on first three kitties:
Both Toby and Miri's stools not firming up. Corn free food time!

RETAIN has 1.00 coupons from Petco for
Natural Balance, a corn-free food!
Will be about $7.99 in store for 3 lbs
with coupon.

Does anyone know where I can get more Petco coupons?

Other choices for a corn free food include:

Katzen Flocken, which is good for kittens. (runs around $9.00 for 4 lbs)

and Petsmart Authority Brand for sensitive tummies, but it is a cat formula. ($7.99 for 4 lbs)

Would like to know if anyone has better ideas for corn free food for these kittens and their mommy.

Thanks for any help, especially financially to look after these kittens until I can place them in forever homes.

I can draw your purr babies from a photo that you can send me by email.

Some folks can only donate small amounts, but it adds up to saving these little ones.
If you donate, please let me know if you would like a portrait done or an ACEO that I have already made.

Here are some examples of my work:
The kitty patty pawing is
Pencil, crayon and watercolor on yellow cardstock.
ACEO (Artist Certified Edition Original) one of a kind 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 and is available for any donation amount.

You can see my other works for sale at

The Beagle and the Siamese are samples of orders from folks who sent me a photo and asked for a purrtrait. These finished drawings were 4 x 6.

Purrz of Thanks fur helping these sweeties,

  1. My vet gave my new kitten a wormer called Nemex. It only cost $1.00. Major had to have it twice. Also the Major had diarhea when I first got her, but it cleared right up. I started her out on Purina's kitten chow and switched her to Meow Mix which she LOVES. I mixed the two together when I switched her.

    Also yesterday you mentioned shots for the kittens. Dr. Foster has a video and supplies on how to do it yourself. That might help you save a few green papers.

  2. Just wondering if you've tried any plain yogurt with live culture to help the kitties' stools. Buddy has to have a little yogurt in one meal every day!

    You sure have your hands full.

  3. Good luck with all the kitties, hope you can catch Maggie and her other kittens soon; they are all lucky to have you...I made a small donation and will email about a sketch by the weekend (busy week ahead)...Happy day sweet friends...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

  4. A friend told Momma she can get lots of coupons on ebay for just a few dollars. I don't know if that is a good suggestion or not, but one we had never considered.


  5. We are sending lots of purrs for Toby and Miri's tummy's to start to feel better. We wish that we could help out more than sending purrs but we had some big expenses that just came up this weekend. And hopefully you will be able to get Maggie and the other three kittens - we are sure that you will and that you will find them all good forever homes really soon!

  6. So glad that Maggie's bringing the other kittens around, even if it means more care, because then they'll get a better chance at life!

    For coupons, check manufacturers' websites. Sign up for Wellness & Blue Buffalo e-mails, there's coupons in them. Both have grain-free/corn-free options.

    Petco has a low-cost vaccination clinic, rotating schedule, done by a certified vet from Luv My Pet. Check at your local store for the schedule.

    Hope this helps, and good luck to all!

  7. It's wonderful that you are helping this beautiful little family to better lives. I hope you can catch Maggie soon too.

    If the wormer doesn't clear up the diarrhea, then some natural live yogurt may help. Sometimes you have to keep on worming as worms in kittens can be really persistent. If that doesn't help, then a kaolin paste (Pro-Kolin - cheaper online than at the vets) might be useful.

    We sent a little donation to help out.

  8. Thank you so much for helping out these kitties. Hope you can get rid of those yucky worms, and help all of the kitties and their Mom.
