To the rescue!
This is my newest ward...Super Cat. I ran to the shelter Saturday to transport some cats to PetSmart, and while I was there, a woman hurried up with a blanket clutched to her chest. I have learned from experience that there's usually an animal in there. I asked her to let me see, and she explained (half out of breath) that she had gone out to her yard and found a 'possum eating a litter of week old kittens in her shrubs. EEK!
Unfortunately, Super Cat was the only one she could save. But he was in good condition, and she wanted help. She didn't know what to do. I scooped him up, and he's been my little buddy since Saturday, coming with me to sleep at the shop between bottle feedings. He's about ten days to two weeks old or so, smart, strong, and happy. Those are my hands in the picture, so you can kind of get a feel for how big he is...you can see his back legs coming off the back of my hand.
I'll post more kitten pictures soon -- I have a bunch of good ones in the camera, but am trouble shooting some computer issues today. Thought I'd do a quick update, so you could see this cutie.
Also, will be sending the newsletter out tomorrow. I'm working on site updates today, finally, and there are some changes in store.....don't worry. Not bad ones. Have a wonderful afternoon!
