Looks like "The Mom" has her hands full again! These babies are Doobie's nieces and nephews....Doobie had a sibling that was too fraidy to learn to be an indoor kitty, a black kitty that I called Hubie. Been feeding Hubie outside since last August, back when Doobie and Hubie showed up... Well I hadn't seen Hubie in several weeks. Then two weeks ago, Hubie showed up on the patio next door and just casually laid down... Next thing, several kittens wandered over and laid down too. Uh oh.... Hubie wasn't Doobie's brother! Hubie was Doobie's sister! so Hubie is now Yubi.
And I knew who the Daddy was too. There's a long-haired orange tabby that comes to eat on the patio almost every night that I nicknamed George. He has a flea collar that's too tight on him and he acts abandonned... (Georgie Porgie ran away...) No pics of him at the moment.
Yubi outside by the patio. The kittens were sick with upper respiratory infections, but are doing much better now after taking antibiotics and eye meds, except for the little girl (behind the toilet in the first pic) whose right eyelids are still swollen.
"The Mom" made some videos, but Youtube won't accept them... even though the file type is on their acceptable list.
Caught Lil Joe first and took him to the emergency Vet on the 9th. He was easy to catch by hand, since his eyes were so matted and he liked the sound of my voice. Here he is at the vets.
Here he is looking so much better after a week of antibiotics... Since The Mom couldn't catch his sisters easily, she put the meds in their food and set up a large kennel crate for them to eat in. Once they got used to that crate, she was able to catch the two calicos on the 11th (more details later). Then Friends of Felines loaned her a kitty trap and caught the tortie last Friday the 14th. Once all the girls were caught, brought them into the house. Joe was so happy to see his sisters! Before she brought the girls in, Joe was hyper and climbing all over the Mom and loudly mewing in her face all the time and helping type on the keyboard, but that's my job!
After The Mom caught the girl kittens... two of the shyest sitting in a box in a crate on the patio. Notice the swollen eye.
The Girls need names!!! Anybody gots ideas???
More Info tomorrow!
Today is "the Mom's" Mother's birthday! Other words, It's our human Nana's birthday! So The Mom is off to have the evening with our Nana.
