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, showing 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.
