You Haz Camera?

We took our newest foundling to the vet yesterday morning. She was just so tiny and weak and the swelling in her eye got worse. A small fortune later? Both eyes stained: no injuries, drops given. Fecal smear: No parasites. Antibiotics given for upper respiratory infection. Age approximation: 3-4 weeks so give bottle feedings or wet, stinky food if she’ll take it. Fleas? Way too numerous to count, slightly anemic because of their dastardly ways. Flea killer found which is acceptable for young age that works within 30-60 minutes but only stays in blood stream 24 hours. Fleas sloughed off in mass quantities. Cleaned up and happy. She is THE most tiny thing. You can’t believe it! Only .64 pound. Just starving. But eating left and right to try and make up for it.

Today I came home, give her meds and eye drops and she wanted to play! Tried to eat the camera. So I will share a couple (more than…) pictures of her. This is what happens on my blog when new babies come into my life. ( you simply must click on them to see her full size! Chloe loves being admired.)


If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y and Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut.

  1. So tiny. It is hard to imagine. And such a sad face. She is lucky she has you.

  2. Oh my goodness, so tiny and so cute. We rescured a stray, she weighed about .5 lbs, and she was estimated to be about 3 weeks old. She was covered in fleas. Because she was so young, we were recommended to use Dawn dish soap at home, every other day, until the fleas were gone. Let me tell you, after having animals all my life, I’ve never heard of this. However, we tried it. It worked so great. Just thought I would let you know.
    Can’t wait to see more pictures.

  3. What a cutie! 🙂

  4. my orange kitty, way back when, and my stripedy kitty, who is lounging around here somewhere, were both that age and about that tiny when they came into my life. lots of love and affection to the Vixens and the Newest Little Vixen.

  5. You are so kind and she is so cute!

  6. OMG!! How cute is she!!! I love cats. Right now I think we have 3 adults and one kitten. And he’s about 6 months old.

  7. She is so cute! Sounds like she is in very good hands!

    My cold black heart may have smiled a wee bit looking at her 🙂

  10. She is so utterly adorable. Which makes me hate those who mistreated them even more. My claws are out for them. My purrs are for the kitty.
