Raising Tiny Kittens

The reason I haven't blogged lately is that I'm raising kittens. My son who works at a Home Depot found these two babies in a pot in the garden department. He had noticed the mama once in a while but the kittens really couldn't move around. Being the caring softy my son brought them home before another employee called the SPCA. I have no idea how old they are maybe 4 weeks and I have no idea if they are boys or girls but I am in love with them. I'm feeding them milk replacement and have them in a box but take them out to play after every feeding. Soon after that they have no trouble going to sleep. One of my chihuahuas is acting like a mommy. She runs to the box every time she hears them cry, and then comes to get me wherever I am. It's so funny to watch. The first twenty four hours that the kittens were home, my Chi didn't sleep a wink because she sat by the box the whole night and didn't let me sleep because she kept wanting me to go to them every 5 to 10 minutes. My other Chi couldn't care less she just stays away from them.I'm feeding them every 4 hours and watch them while they play. I forgot how much time animals babies require. I'm loving it though. Anyway, their names are Oreo and Cotton.

Oreo and Cotton are so darn cute. Well it's good that they have a good mama to take care of them. I've had my litter of cats and I'm down to the last one who is all of 19 years old and still kicking. No more after this one. I have 3 dogs, 2 live outside and sleep in the garage and one lives indoor. This is the last of pets also. Can't do anything or go any place, plust my hubby has birds. Getting away is difficult. Have fun raising them. Take care.

What very appropriate names, Estee. They are cute. Wish I could have a pet, but living near a river, it is too hazardous for them.
